  1. Apologies, I cant see how to edit my previous comment with spacing between paragraphs.
  2. Hi All, I am pretty new to overclocking and I have a few questions following the completion of stage two of this competition if anyone is kind enough to assist. I notice that valid scores were not required for submissions . I used older drivers in order to submit a valid score. While I don't think this affected my score much I wanted to clarify for future reference. I see that the use of newer drivers is allowed but Windows 10 with 3D Mark requires online validation via 3DMark. Is this different to a valid score or am I misunderstanding what is meant by an adjustable BUS? Someone previously asked about the reference frequency shown in 3DMark. I am unsure of the answer to this. I dialled my OC down to make sure it was under 5Ghz in both CPU-Z and 3DMark. Is this correct or is only CPU-Z required? My final question, if anyone is kind enough to share is regarding GPU clocks. I notice these were pushed as high as 1600. I capped at 1200 and couldn't find anyway to push this higher. Is this a limitation of my motherboard or was there another way to do this? I checked XTU, intel display software and MSI afterburner. None of these provided any options for this. I only had a few days with a new CPU for this round and I was miles off the pace. There was some very impressive scores submitted. I obviously have lots to learn but hopefully I will be able to compete with the big boys sometime in the future.
  3. Thank you, greatly appreciated. Unfortunately I may have wasted your time. I plugged this board in this morning and was greeted by a wispy plume of blue smoke!
