HWBOT OC Challenge January 2011: Operation "Sandy Blitz"

'Sandy Bell', 'SnB', 'Sandy oh Sandy' and even 'Sandy B*tch'. Those are just a couple terms of the very extensive set people have used to identify the upcoming platform Sandy Bridge. We've seen leaks well before NDA was over, we've heard about all the tricks to push the platform beyond factory rated frequencies as well as have learned about all the caveats of the overclocking process.

But, above all we're excited to finally touch this brand new architecture. No doubt every single enthusiast part of that group of early adopters is eager to see how it scales and performs. That's what this month's challenge is about: having a shot at the new and unexplored.

We've selected a bunch of what we expect to be interesting challenges for you. Good luck and have fun!
