  1. just wanted to point out that there is less than a week to go on this competition round, so get your results in ASAP.
  2. Yes both are similar, it’s to find the best in the UK, giving the guys a chance with multiple events as they may have had a prior engagement and may have not been able to attend the first round. The best 6 from three rounds will go to the finals at i45.
  3. Round two guys. http://asus.hardwareheaven.com/ The aim is to achieve the maximum overclocking perctentage. To do this applicants must run CPU-Z on their rig at home at stock speed, then again once they have the OC set to MAX. Screenshots showing both Stock and OC speeds must be attached to the entry form or validation links submitted to hardwareheaven. Good luck to all
  4. Last day tomorrow guys, the twelve finalists will be announced on the 1st of March
  5. Update, Take a look at what you could win. http://www.kitguru.net/site-news/competitions/jules/win-two-fully-loaded-intel-ivy-bridge-powered-pcs/
  6. Due to demand the competition has been extended by ASUS with a closing date for entries now being the 1st of March 2012. Looks like things are starting to heat up quite a bit with lots of entries coming though, anyway time to get binning your CPU’s guys as you now have a few more weeks to get your final results in.
  7. Last weekend to get a decent result in guys. Good luck everyone.
  8. Like this one a lot, anyway Only one week left guys to get your highest % overclock into http://www.kitguru.net/site-news/competitions3-sitenews/carl/asus-overclocking-masters-uk-win-great-prizes/
  9. Only 11 days left guys to get your highest % overclock into http://www.kitguru.net/site-news/com...-great-prizes/ I have been in talks with ASUS UK and there will be some great prizes for all the 12 finalist that have been invited to the grand Finals, it goes without saying though that the UK’s Top Overclocker for 2012 will walk away with an ARMY of prizes ready for some serous 2012 overclocking. Don’t forget all entries must be submitted to asuscompetition@kitguru.net before the closing date of Wednesday 8th February Good luck guys, looking forward to meeting the 12 finalist at the finals.
  10. Not to sure as of yet mate, will keep you fully updated as and when i get all the info.
  11. Looking good so far guys just got off the phone with ASUS and it looks like this will be one great compo with lots of toys for the contestants to play with. More info as and when I receive it. Don’t forget if you’re not in it you won’t win it, so why not have a go.
  12. Ok Guys are you ready, if so get you engines started we have a great competition for all UK overclockers, the competition is all about overclocking to the maximum MHZ you can from the stock MHZ using only an air-cooled set-up, this can be of your choice, so no limitations to whatever setup or system you want to run. the best bit it’s in the comfort of your own lair, we invite you to generate the MAXIMUM OC PERCENTAGE possible. Run CPU-Z on your rig at STOCK speed, then again once you have the OC set to MAX take a CPUz and email those links. The 12 fastest overclockers will be invited along to the finals. Good luck lads I know you will do us proud. All info can be found hear:http://www.benchtec.co.uk/forums/threads/9050-MAXIMUM-OC-PERCENTAGE-COMPERTITION
  13. Why, if an individual has been found to be cheating then why not instant ban for life, this is no different to stealing or cheating on others for self gain. I totally agree this is where it gets very difficult proving someone has been hardware sharing, but why not try to make things very hard for sharing like proving they have the hardware in the first place. This will at least get users to buy the hardware they are supposedly benching and will stop a little of what is going on. Again every bit of hardware comes with a serial/barcode number even CPU's, why not ask manufactures to start implementing this number into the parts being sold that then can be verified by software detection. Again The bigger picture here as I can see How to stop cheating and stop all the sharing, this is a big one to try and sort out, but think it can be done if everyone pulls together to stamp this out. Harsher penalties for anyone found to be sharing or cheating (ban for life) rather than a few months. The use of cheery handpicked manufacture parts is the biggest problem I can see, stamping this out has to be a top priority and again the use of manufactuers intended only parts such as the 2.4ES Gulftowns that are not available to anyone other than Manufactures. How is it that HWBOT is indorsing the use of these parts and CPU's when they do not represent anything anyone can buy? this has to be stamped out.
  14. HI Can see you anger at team Finland not being in the rankings. However, just because you are one of the top scorers does not mean that your team should be in the top team league. It is a little like football, you have a team that are not that great, but within that team, they have the top scoring player in the league. This again comes to team effort and has nothing to do with individuals or there ability it is all about a team and the effort they all put in. Will it be the case that in a few months time I start to moan because you get a lot more hardware than the rest of us do, I have to face facts you have more time and get better results so the manufacturers will support you more than me. We all started from nowhere and must never forget this, if REV4 was introduced back when most of us started overclocking, would overclocking be as big as it is now, the answer I think would be no as what would be the point.
