Here at HWBOT we try our best to deliver a fair and enjoyable playing field for all those who participate in the rankings and competition. To be able to provide this kind of service we have tried to design some submission and general rules to help remove any doubts about whether something is allowed or not. Based on continued experience these rules will be updated, expanded and completed as time goes by. Please check back for any updates.
For overclockers attending Computex 2014, Intel® is hosting the Intel® OC Challenge for Amateurs alongside a bigger overclocking competition. The Intel® OC Challenge for Amateurs features 8 overclockers competing on air cooling using the new Z97 motherboards and upcoming Haswell K-SKU series CPUs. The registration for this competition is open. All you need to do is submit an XTU result using either the Core i5 4670K or the Core i7 4770K to this competition page. From the selection of submissions we then select the 8 participants at random.
The Intel® OC Challenge for Amateurs takes place on June 3 from 5.30PM until 8.30PM during Computex 2014. The amateurs are split in two groups of four. Each amateur will have 1.5h to compete, so in total eight amateurs will compete. The challenge is simple: whoever sets the highest XTU and CPU Frequency scores wins the competition and will forever be known as the winner of the first Intel® OC Challenge for Amateurs. The competition will be held on air-cooling only. The full systel, including the cooling gear, will be provided by the organization.
Note: even if you have liquid nitrogen experience you are eligible for this competition.
