HWBOT Announces Intel® XTU Overclocking Challenge (July 9 - August 9)

To celebrate the launch of the XTU project cooperation between Intel® and HWBOT, we are hosting the first ever XTU overclocking competition in July. The competition consists of two parts: a desktop contest, and a mobile contest. To participate, download the Intel® XTU software application, install it on your Ivy Bridge or Haswell system, run the benchmark, and submit your score. Easy!

Once you have run the benchmark, you can enter the competition by either clicking Compare in the XTU benchmark application or saving the file to manually submit later. If you choose to submit directly from the XTU application, make sure to choose Compete when uploading the result to HWBOT. If you want to save your benchmark file to submit later, check out the how-to guide on the forums (click). Note that the last step is a little bit different as you want to submit to the competition and not the general rankings.

With qualification CPUs you mean ES samples correct PJ ?

Yes. More information on QS can be found here: http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=75758 In simple terms: anything that has a product SKU (eg: "Core i7 4700K") can be used.
