Welcome to the Rookie Rumble Cup! We are glad you have found your way to this competition. The HWBOT universe is complex and we know it can sometimes be a little bit overwhelming. Most of you will probably have made it here because of XTU. The benchmark tool integrated with Intel's overclocking utility is very popular nowadays. We like it as well! It is a very simple tool to get started with overclocking. You can easily measure the performance increase from overclocking your system.

The overclocking world offers much more than just XTU. At HWBOT, there are well over 60,000 overclocking enthusiasts who enjoy overclocking all kinds of systems. Also, there are a lot more interesting and exciting benchmarks available! If XTU made you "OC-curious", then the other benchmarks may turn you in to a real overclocking addict.

The Rookie Rumble Cup is here to help you get familiar with overclocking at HWBOT. The competition is limited to rookie overclockers just like you. That means you will not have to deal with the experienced overclockers just yet. The competition is typical for HWBOT. There are three stages, each with the same hardware limitations but featuring a different benchmark. The three benchmarks are: XTU, HWBOT Prime, and MaxxMem Read Bandwidth. You can gather points by submitting in each of the three stages. The better the result, the more points you will obtain. And eventually the more points, they higher you'll rank!

Note that the validation process for the three benchmarks is slightly different. For XTU, only a datafile is required. For HWBOT Prime, you need to include a verification screenshot in the datafile. For MaxxMem Read Bandwidth you don't need a datafile as a valid screenshot is enough. You can check the various rules pages (XTU, HWBOT Prime, SuperPI) for more information on what is required in the verification screenshot. In case you have any questions, feel free to drop a message on our forums.

We hope you enjoy the competition and wish you the best of luck!
