A little later than usual, but here it is after all: the monthly HWBOT OC Challenge. This month, we'll go easy on the hardware limitations and go for a hardware category that is already quite competitive (read: many teams should have cards): the Nvidia GeForce 8800 series. All cards are allowed to be used, although I can imagine some will stand out in terms of performance per clock. There are three stages: 3DMark01 single GPU, 3DMark03 single GPU and (this wouldn't be HWBOT if we didn't do something strange) 3DMark06 'Full throttle'. This last stage has no limitation on the amount of GPUs that can be used, so you'll have to figure out how to get multiple cards running!

The scoring algoritm is the same as last month's challenge: 25-18-16-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

The competition background for this month is just a nice wallpaper I've found on the interwebs. Click to download: http://hwbot.org/blog/wp-content//nvidia-chip-is-on-fire-1920x12001.jpg (source: http://thehdwallpapers.net/nvidia-chip-is-on-fire-wallpapers)

Good luck to all teams!

Edit 13/04: just for clarification, Ivy Bridge CPUs are not allowed for this competition. Also not at the very last day.
