Two Days Left for Stage 8 of Country Cup 2013 - Top 4 Within 4 Seconds!

The 2013 edition of the Country Cup kicked off exactly one month and thirteen days ago on November 1. Since then, overclockers from around the world have come together and joined forced for the glory of the country. On December 28 we know what country follows Greece on the list of Country Cup victors. In two days, the first stage of the Country Cup will close. From then, every four days more stages close.

Stage 8 is the first to close. In this stage, every country needs 7 overclockers to participate in the SuperPI 32M low-clock challenge. The seven setups each have to use a different socket. The most obvious first choices are of course the LGA1150, LGA1155, and LGA2011 platform. But then, teams need to figure out which platform will perform best with a CPU clocked at maximum 4000 MHz. At the moment of writing, the USA is leading with a combined average time of 8min 20sec 910ms. They have a 3 second lead over Germany and Romania, who are within a second! Even Indonesia, ranked 4th, is within the 4 second margin of the leading country. Very tight race to say the least!

Maybe an interesting tidbit, the best SuperPI 32M time of the stage (so far) is from the inevitable Bullant from Australia with a time of 7min 17sec 656ms. Note: he is also the current leader in our 5GHz low-clock challenge in the forum!

Daaaaaamn, too close!

United States Splave says:

If you think the fastest time matters you are wrong! Its the slowest one. This is a expensive laptop owned round. I would like to see one socket and required different sku next time or maybe mix amd in instead of brand new spec $2500 laptops.

No different than 'who owns the most 290X' stage.

websmile says:

Bad comparison, the big guns at pro oc league or guys who go for globals will buy the 780ti, Titan or 290 anyway, so it is already there - noone will buy 3k laptop at hwbot for 20 hwboints and some golden cups unless he is too rich or has business nb sponsored by company ;) - but it is like it is, and we all have same chances on this stage

It's finding that guy in your country that has one, and motivating him to submit with it for the Country Cup :).

You can always buy the CPU and use it in a cheaper laptop, no? :)

Yes and No. Most times the VRMs on the notebook boards are on the edge, so unless the model was fitted with a higher end cpu you will fry one or both. If you want OC then you want the more expensive notebook anyway for its semi-unlocked bios.

Nice work Indonesia! You treated those notebooks right.
Though, sub 8min should have been possible overall.

i think you just summed it up there.

"treating them right".
