MSI's hunt for 450 & 460 - OC Challenger

Due to the great price/erformance ratio, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 and GTS 450 are amongst the most popular graphics card for gamers. In addition, the OC potential of these cards is amazing, as we have already seen with the MSI N460GTX Hawk's oustanding 1GHz OC and the MSI N450GTS Cyclone at 950MHz.

But there's more left! To discover the true potential of these cards, we need you. Therefore we welcome everyone to push these cards not only on air cooling, but of course also on LN2!

MSI's hunt for 450 & 460 - OC Challenger takes place at HWBOT from 16 September untill 05 October 2010. The only hardware-based restriction of this competition is using an MSI VGA. You can OC under Extreme cooling or not as the competition is divided into 2 stages, extreme & non-extreme. Try to OC GPU/Memory core clock as high as you can!

No matter who you are, a OC master hand or a entry ocer, it’s time to give full play to your talents.
