Turrican Memorial Charity Challenge Extended – Additional Prizes by EK Water Blocks

Overclockers.at and HWBOT invite you to join us in honoring his name by participating in the donation campaign for an Austrian children hospital dedicated to researching cancer especially for young patients.

For this donation campaign overclockers.at has redesigned Karl’s “Hardware Terminator” shirts and made them available in the overclockers.at web shop in multiple cuts and colors. They will be printed on demand in small by a little company here in Austria and shipped by us as soon as they are ready. To be able to buy one, you have to donate at least 5 Euros to the donation campaign. We let the amount of the donation open to your choosing. Every Euro is appreciated and will be directly forwarded as it is. The proceedings of the whole campaign will be officially handed over to St. Anna Kinderspital in February next year. More details on that as soon as possible.

Together with our friends from Noctua, EK Water Blocks, overclockers.at and HWBOT teamed up to present you the Turrican Memorial Charity Challenge! It's a contest with two stages using GPUPI, the benchmark I dedicated to Turrican a few weeks ago. The first stage is called "Turrican's Choice" and focuses on old hardware. Run GPUPI in 1B on the oldest CPU possible and overclock the hell out of it afterwards. The oldest chip with the fastest run wins! Yes, you know you wouldn't stand a chance if Karl could participate. The second stage is GPUPI in 1B for graphics cards all out. The fastest run wins, whatever it takes! We would like to see some crazy 290s on liquid nitrogen here, so be ready to refill your containers.

How do I make a donation without having to buy a shirt? I'd rather give the entire amount I would spend right to the campaign.

Austria _mat_ says:

Just take a shirt and leave us a short message in the order form that you want to donate the whole amount. If you want to make a smaller donation I can send you our paypal account for a money transfer. Thanks for supporting the campaign!
