HWBOT OC Challenge January 2010

As announced in an earlier news post, in 2010 HWBOT will be holding a monthly Overclocking Challenge. In contrary the competitions held in the past, this series of challenges we will be using a variety of current generation low-end and old-skool high-end hardware. The aim is to give overclockers an alternative for the daily HWBoint hunts and, of course, just to have fun with low-cost hardware.

The first challenge of the year 2010 will be all about the GeForce4 series. We'll be using the 3DMark03 benchmark; whoever scores highest wins the competition.
