    Toppc - Core i7 4820K @ 7006MHz - 7006 mhz CPU Frequency

    It probably wasnt worth enough points to hit front page.

    Cheapaz Chips 2019 Planning Thread

    Thats fine, if youre living in US. I think its also important to choose a card that is available worldwide. I dont think there's anything wrong with running a slow card, it'll make people work harder to get them into the double digits. This is the CHEAP competition, fast gear is expensive

    Cheapaz Chips 2019 Planning Thread

    Just to be sure. I think the benchmarks chosen are fine but we don't want to guess and then start the comp and have someone wipe the floor with a 7G CPU and air GPU because we didn't say they couldn't before they started.

    Cheapaz Chips 2019 Planning Thread

    I think its worth doing a quick test of these benchmarks to ensure that they arent cpu bound in anyway (do a test at 4g and 5g, should be obvious) BEFORE starting this competition.

    Cheapaz Chips 2019 Bench Selection

    Happy with you limit of 5G irrespective of cpu. I also support allowing old es motherboards and cpus. You're not truely going to get a boost in these tests and I know there's plenty of guys who have boards considered ES and can't use them for other comps

    sponsor it to someone else and teach them how to use it.

    Cheapaz Chips 2019 Planning Thread

    The point of my CAC competitions is to get the hardware as cheap as possible, and force people to learn two things. 1. Hard modding video cards 2. Efficiency of system. I want you to go out, buy 3 cards, learn to mod the shit out of them, especially if you've never picked up an iron before, then learn to tweak your system to get every single point the card has to give. Ideally the benchmark choice should be entirely GPU bound as well, this isn't always easy, but we've pulled it off in the past. Ideally you guys out there in your local communities are encouraging guys to join these comps, and see what fun you can have with overclocking. Maybe you fry a couple of cards, thats all a part of the game, and why the cards should be cheap as possible to replace. We wanna see people thinking outside the box - coat your system in vaseline and leave it in the snow, run 6m of copper tubing into a slab of concrete you're putting down and run your system through that. I vote HD5450.
  8. Not too bad, but some improvements can be made. Cant wait to give this a go myself.
  9. Its not a tweak its an unverified cheat. dont compare yourself to him.

    vote for fixed clock, no cooling requirements. if you want to win with cold DDR3, you should be able to.

    6950x vs high core count cpu's

    The only thing the elite league stands for is points on current gen ES hardware.

    welcome to hwbot, enjoy your stay.

    6950x vs high core count cpu's

    Because there is only one mod.

    Because he can cheat timers with it.
