    Official OCL5k (Overclocking League 5K) Thread

    Introduction
    Hello and welcome to the return of South Africa's Overclocking League. The idea of this friendly competition is build each other's overclocking and benchmarking skills while, most importantly, having fun. The rules have been designed in such a way as to remove most variables from the game to give anyone with a modern machine a fair, fighting chance. Everything you need to get started is in this post. Please be sure to read through this post so that you have a full understanding of the competition.


    Rules
    1. Maximum clock speed is 5,000 MHz; you can go up to 6 MHz higher than this but no more. This is to allow for combinations that will land you just above 5,000 MHz, such as 104.2 MHz BCLK with a 48x clock multiplier for 5,001.6 MHz. The absolute hard cutoff speed is 5,006.00 MHz.
    2. Core i7 users are to disable HyperThreading for 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark 11 and MaxxMem in order to level the playing field with Core i5 users. SuperPi, AquaMark3 and 3DMark03 runs done with HyperThreading enabled will be accepted as they do not gain anything.
    3. Sandy Bridge-E users are to disable HyperThreading as well as two cores for 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark 11 and Maxxmem - the limit for any chip will be 4c/4t. Again, SuperPi, AquaMark3 and 3DMark03 may have more threads enabled as the extra threads do not help in any way.
    4. Any single GPU graphics card can be used. Multi-GPU solutions including cards such as the Radeon 6990 are not allowed. This includes Lucid Virtu MVP.
    5. Should you be using an NVIDIA graphics card, be sure to configure PhysX to be handled by the CPU, NOT the graphics card. This only applies for 3DMark Vantage as it is the only benchmark to make use of PhysX.
    6. Any cooling may be employed on any system component.
    7. Screenshots to follow the standard HWBOT guidelines. In short, all screenshots must have the following visible:
      • Final score
      • CPU-Z open on the CPU tab
      • CPU-Z open on the memory tab
      • CPU-Z open on the motherboard tab (optional)
      • 3D benchmarks must also have GPU-Z open
    8. Rounds will start on the 1st day of a month and run through until the last day of the same month. As an example, should a round start on the 1st May, it will run through until the 31th May.
    9. Late entries will be entered into the next round.


    Example BCLK limits at various multipliers
    • 46x - 108.8 MHz (results in 5,004.8 MHz CPU speed)
    • 47x - 106.5 MHz (results in 5,005.5 MHz CPU speed)
    • 48x - 104.2 MHz (results in 5,001.6 MHz CPU speed)
    • 49x - 102.1 MHz (results in 5,002.9 MHz CPU speed)
    • 50x - 100.1 MHz (results in 5,005.0 MHz CPU speed)

    There will be no need to go above a 50x multiplier. A realistic starting point for most would be 48 x 104.2 MHz - don't be disappointed if you can't get your BCLK high enough for a 47x multiplier.

    Submissions
    As the forums resize images to a very low resolution, please host your screenshots on one of the many free image hosting sites around the net. Please do NOT use ImageShack, as people who do not have an account will not be able to see your images. Submissions should be followed by your name, a dash, the benchmark name, another dash and your score. Use "." (period) as your decimal separator and "," (comma) as your 1000s separator. Examples are as follows:
    Oj0 - SuperPi 8M - 1m24.677s
    Oj0 - 3DMark03 - 116,253

    For a full submission example, please see this post.

    Discussion
    Please keep all score discussion in the discussion thread and use this thread only for submitting results. Any discussion in this thread will be moved to the discussion thread, but you'll make our lives easier by posting in the correct thread. ANY SCORE DISPUTES ARE TO BE SENT MY WAY VIA PM. Publicly calling out a score may result in your points being penalized or your removal from the current round.

    Scoring
    The scoring system will work as follows:
    1. 10 points
    2. 8 points
    3. 7 points
    4. 6 points
    5. 5 points
    6. 5 points
    7. 4 points
    8. 3 points
    9. 2 points
    10. 1 point

    This system may be revised at a later date depending on the number of entrants.

    Prizes
    While the idea of this is friendly competition, Firestrm_ZA is sponsoring an ASUS GX900 mouse for first prize of round one. Prizes may or may not happen again in the future, don't make winning a prize your goal. The idea here is to learn how to get the absolute best out of your system while constantly being pushed by your "peer pressure" over here.

    Congratulations to our previous winners

    People need to spend less time learning and more time thinking
