Tradeshow & OC events by leeghoofd @ 2013-03-23

One of the objectives of the HWBOT Team Cup 2013 is to introduce our hardcore hobby to the masses. When MSI asked Madshrimps to attend an OverClock Academy, to promote their Z77 MPOWER mainboards, all systems were go. On the 21st of March we halted at the magnificent CDROMLAND shop located in the lovely Breda. Our goal was not to set new high scores, but to explain how overclocking works and to allow the gathered crowd to get into it themselves.

Of course these OC events reports don't need a lot of words, but rather require a lot of pictures from the action going on.

LN2 Setup

The Team Captain of OverClock Team Holland, Bauke Caspers aka Nedernakker was present to torture the Z77 MPOWER board under liquid nitrogen. MADSHRIMPS' usual binning method ( 5GHz boot and run SuperPi 32M )  seemed quite good as Nedernakker's CPU reached +/- 6700MHz. 3D was bench stable at +/-6400MHz. Just for info the CPU used performed a 5GHz straight boot into the OS. Plus completed the SuperPi 32M calculations at a mere 1.285Volts.





Bauke's hardware consisted out of:

  • MSI Z77 MPOWER board
  • "binned" Intel i7-3770K CPU
  • Kingpin Gemini F1 pot
  • G.Skill 2000C6 4GB kit
  • MSI GTX 580 Lightning card x 2
  • Corsair AX1200 Power Supply
  • Tons of eraser gum to insulate the board
