Five New Achievements Unlockable: G.Skill Extreme Club Member, Hoarders Anonymous, and Memory Fanatic

Before heading off to the ASRock overclocking event in Guangzhou, China (more on that later this week), we enabled five new achievements. The newly available achievements are linked to our long-time partner G.SKILL and can be unlocked by submitting specific overclocking results with G.Skill memory. The achievement are

Although we have triggered a recalculation of the achievements, it may be possible that your profile does not have the proper achievements unlocked. To fix this, go to the achievement page and click on the Recalculate Achievement button. Any achievements that should be unlocked, will then be unlocked and added to your profile.

Good luck all!

Four New Achievements Unlockable: G.Skill Extreme Club Member, Hoarders Anonymous, and Memory Fanatic

And what's your way to count to four? :D

Belgium Massman says:

There is no excuse for this failure -_-

Russian Federation Antinomy says:

And old suggestion again - how about some more geeks achievements, not only vendor ones?

Belgium Massman says:

Sure, suggestions? To make an achievement, I need: - an achievement title - an achievement description ("how to get it") - an appropriate image to go with the achievement

Russian Federation Antinomy says:

The pictures are not my strong side.

1. Instead of the multiCPU achievement make it more like the GPUs (harder): - Twinhead - Submit 50 results using multiple CPUs - Quad calculator / Four and no less - Submit 25 results using four or more CPUs A special achievement: - My granny's supercomputer - Submit 5 wPrime 1024M runs that took over two hours to finish using multiple CPUs. - Only gold is good enough - Submit a Total Hardware Class Domination in 10/25/100/500? hardware categories (you don't have to submit in all tests but have to beat everyone in all points-awarded benchmarks. Meaning - you have to be first where there are any results, but may not post if this category*benchmark is empty).

I sent a list to Frank when we were discussing these ;) The original list was: - Use G.Skill memory in 10/25/50/100/250/500/1000 submissions - Submit a score withG.Skill DDR3 memory at 3000 MHz - Submit a score with each of the following G.Skill memory sets: Pi, Trident, TridentX, Ares, Sniper, RipjawsX, RipjawsZ (must have PC images of each) - Use G.Skill memory for a SuperPi 32m score below 5 minutes - Use 64GB of GSkill DDR3 in a Memory Speed submission (with PC photograph) at 2400 Mhz / 2600 MHz/ 2800 MHz/ 3000 MHz - Submit a score with G.Skill memory at sub-zero temperatures You used a couple :D I would encourage achievements be part of the package you sell to partners ;) I'm sure something like 'Submit 25 results using a G1 motherboard' or 'Achieve DDR3-4000 on G.Skill with an MSI motherboard' could pair in with a contest

United Kingdom borandi says:

To put this into context, the 'Xbox Live' achievement system typically has three sorts of achievements: 1) Reach a certain point in the game 2) Perform something repetitively 3) Achieve something difficult Try to get a balance of all three :) Kongregate.com does something similar. Split is 20% easy achievements, 35% medium, 40% hard, 5% (almost) impossible :)

4/5 :p

Norway knopflerbruce says:

I'd like some more socket achievements :) Just like the ones we have, for sockets where no challenges exist. The 64gb g.skill one looks fine, got 64gb g.skill in my daily driver :D

Strunkenbold says:

Socket 7 Master :D

Russian Federation Antinomy says:

Socket 8 domination :D

Austria Turrican says:

Socket 3 Master. ;)

Belgium Massman says:

Overclockers really are creative little creatures :D

United States Splave says:

lmao I love that its 65GB and not 64GB on x79 best you could do 8x8 with what gskill offers. server board maybe?

Christian Ney says:

Technically 65GB is correct since 1GB = 1024MB = 1.024GB
=> 64GB = 64 x 1GB => 64 x 1024MB = 65536MB ~ 65GB
So 8x8GB will do.

Eh..? :D this ain't right. You can't mix these things, man! 1000 and 1024... 64x1 Gb = 64 Gb no matter what. 65536 Mb=64 Gb.

If you want to use base of 10, 64 GB "=" 68719476736 "B" ~ 68.7 "GB".

Trololol :D

Canada Vinster says:

err... hmm... it is 1GB is 1024MB.... I guess I need to stop buying the cheap stuff and get some of this to play eh? Vin

Belgium Massman says:

Guys, http://www.convertunits.com/from/MB/to/GB :p

Christian Ney says:

Muha, somebody changed the achievement from 65GB to 64GB I see.

Yeah I did some nazi there :p

Germany der8auer says:

Actually correct is:

1 MiB (Mebibyte) = 1024 KByte

So 64 GiB (Gibibyte) = 68.7 Gigabyte

Windows is actually using the GiB but leaves the i away. But if you buy a HDD with 500 GB the vendor is selling it correctly. That's why you are "missing" some space if you look at windows. And whenever you post here in the forums it's actually wrong because you also leave away the i :D

GiB is with the base of 2
GB is wht the base of 10

Belgium Massman says:

Are you guys trying to lawyer your way to achievements? :D

Norway knopflerbruce says:

I think we deserve a special achievement for the last couple of pages here :p

Russian Federation Antinomy says:

Yep, it should be called a sandbagging achievement :D
