Gigabyte Crowns An Overclocking Champion For 2010

Champion Announced

16:29:32 - Even with the scoreboard turned off during the final minutes of the competition to keep the winner a secret until the official awards ceremony, stephenyeong went down fighting. He finally managed to get MaxxMEM to finish properly. Unfortunately, his score wasn’t enough to overcome Matose. Game, set, and match for the Romanian!

16:56:21 - Rankings remained consistent during the last 15 minutes of the competition—even before the scoreboard went dark. The announcement that Matose was the GO OC 2010 World Champion was a formality. By this time, he had proudly waved the Romanian tri-color on stage and hoisted his trophy. The winner was flanked by stephenyeong and speedtime.wing, who placed second and third, respectively.

Screenshots of Matose's, stephenyeong's, and speedtime.wing's setups are available from Gigabyte here.

  • Checks are old. XD ATI's logo is still on it, AMD took over the logo too. Should be AMD radeon now.

    Welcome to the world of multi-core computing.

    I personally could care less about the clock rate. All about the overall speed of the entire system as a whole for me.

    So you don't care if you hit 3.8 ghz or 4.0 with your cpu? You must not overclock.

  • I rather have a 24/7 stable machine than having to stay awake pouring L2N 24/7 until the system dies from condensation. Fun to see the limits thoo!

    You seem to be looking at this from the wrong perspective. When reading a video card review are you more concerned with the GPU's clock rate or the Frames per second it delivers? Of course what matters most is the performance. 3.8 or 4.0 Ghz is really just an e-peen contest if you can't get ram your timings right.
