Head over to overclock.net if you want to participate in the annual Freezer’ Burn overclocking competition. 2400$ in prizes, very active community, split ambient and extreme cooling stages, they've got it all!
This competition was designed with the goal that everyone can participate and be competitive. Whether you are an experienced subzero overclocker or just starting and this is all new, you can learn and participate in a fair and even environment. There are separate categories for ambient cooled and extreme cooled computers. You will only be allowed to participate in one category, but you an change categories at any time.
We learned alot from the last Freezer’ Burn competition and we decided to make one very fundamental change for this competition. The biggest and most important change is that we will not limit the CPU or core count in this competition. Simply put, we will allow every CPU ever made in this competition. You might be saying to yourself, hey that's not fair since I only have a 4 core CPU and others might have 32 core CPU’s. Well, we have an interesting solution to this problem, which will be described below in the 2D section. To take things a step further, we are only choosing 3D benchmark programs were the CPU does not influence the score. No matter what CPU you have, you can compete in a fair environment!
Here's a thread to have your chance to vote on which 2D benchmarks you feel should have global points in 2019!
The GOC 2018 Online Qualification Contest has ended this weekend, and the top 12 competitors which are invited to the finals are known.
Congrats to OGS for winning the qualifications! If you reached the top 12 and you have not yet been contacted, send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details.
The GALAX GOC 2018 Qualification ended today, and the submissions made are being scrutinized the next 24 hours. Some submissions where rejected incorrectly due to a mixup the the GPUPI version restrictions, and might be allowed to enter the competition if they were initially submitted - but rejected by the engine - before the competition deadline.
Hold on tight, we will have the final ranking validated tomorrow at 19h CEST.
Intel just took the veil off the performance figures for its latest Z390 platform and the forthcoming Intel Core i9 9900K processor, an 8-core/16-thread Coffee Lake architecture chip that so far has broken 10 World Records and 11 Global First Places in the 8 cores CPU category. The new Intel Z390 chipset has also broken the DDR4 memory frequency record, pushing it to 5566MHz.
As the GOC 2018 Online Qualification Contest just started this week, GALAX has provided some tools to get the most out of your 2080ti. It might get you the edge to get the ticket to the finals, but use at own risk!
Let us know in the comments if you would like to receive the mod tools and tweaking tips.

Memory World Record Broken at DDR4-5543MHz
A new memory frequency world record was set this week at the G.SKILL Computex booth by Toppc, a renowned professional extreme overclocker, reaching DDR4-5543MHz using Trident Z RGB memory on a MSI Z370I GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard and an Intel® Core™ i7-8700K processor. On the same day, another pro extreme overclocker named Kovan Yang overclocked the Trident Z RGB memory to a whopping DDR4-5541.4MHz, reaching the second spot on the fastest memory frequency rankings, with an MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard and an Intel® Core™ i7-7740X processor. This marks the first time that the top two memory frequency records are set on two different chipset platforms.
