MSI's Overclocking Final: Amsterdam
The Final In Amsterdam

Our arrival in Amsterdam: bikes are everywhere. The winners of the French final, Marmott and Florian 76, are ready to compete. The French final, which we covered for you here at Tom’s, was a prelude to these European finals in Amsterdam, with the world finals to be held by year’s end.

    Wouldn't hurt if you'd included a simple list at the end listing all teams scores in the individual benchmarks, and perhaps the top frequencies achieved. msi is bound to have such lists they could lend you!

    It would be great if you guys would post a list of events like this with dates and location. If there are that many? I think it would be really interesting to check one out...

    I've bin at the pre-rounds and miserabely failed lol. Something with XP SP3 and a rivatuner which refused to apply my OC. The dutch guy is Snot_aap, a respected overclocked together with his GF, who also applied Dry-ice to the previous contest.

    Great to have something dutch even on Tomshardware =)

    Very nice clock speeds, I agree with Neirotopelcc, need more details..
    Bet you guys were having too much fun to record the details..

    Just hope the world final includes some aussies..
    I'd love to play with liquid nitrogen :)

    At least the Greeks beat the Turks. Let’s see how the European does on the world final.

    Like the French finals that you covered, this is nothing more than a glorified photo album. Details please. Apart from knowing how people are taking their machines to the edge, it'd bwe nice to know where the 'edge' is.
