Madshrimps is proud to be selected by MSI to participate in the European MSI Overclocking Contest. Our humble site has been appointed the task to send one Belgian overclocker (or team of two) to Amsterdam, Netherlands for the big finals in August.

The selection process is split up in three parts:
Pre-selection: starts today, we want to see impressive overclocking results posted in this forum! Using SuperPi 1M and 3DMark03. You get a chance to participate until Friday 9th May. The winners will be selected by our jury based on effort, skills and their OC scores.

Top 2 + 1st from Overclex (representing French Side of Belgium) will each receive one MSI RX3850-T2D512E-OC Video Card and MSI P35 Platinum Motherboard. With this hardware they need to post the highest scores in WPrime 32M, 3Dmark03 and CineBench R10. They get to the end of May to submit their scores. The 16th June the ultimate winner will be selected.

The winning person/team will receive the newest MSI P45 Motherboard, CPU, Memory and PSU to prepare for the finals in August!

But wait… there’s more, if you end up in the TOP 3~9 you’ll get an MSI bonus package consisting of MSI branded goodies (T-Shirt, Hat, Stress ball and more!)

Pre-Selection Guidelines or How to make chance to Win!

To be able to qualify for this overclocking contest you need to post new or old(er) overclocking achievements, the benchmarks we like to see pushed to the limit are SuperPi 1M and 3DMark03, but the score alone is not enough, you start a new thread in this forum and post your benchmark setup, photos, and tell us how you achieved this overclocking, what tweaks you used (if you which to share;)).

In short: tell and show us why you are a better overclocker than the other participants.

>>> A valid SuperPi 1M score is submitted with a screenshot like:

Use the latest version of CPU-Z, after the SuperPi 1M benchmark has run, open CPU-Z twice and show the CPU details, and in the other show the memory details

>>> A valid 3DMark03 score is submitted with a screenshot like:

Use the latest version of CPU-Z, and GPU-Z. The screenshot must show the 3DMark03 settings, the total 3DMark03 screen AND the result details


We wish all participants good luck and we hope to send a very capable overclocker (or team) to the Netherlands to represent Belgium in the MSI EU OC Finals!

We’ll update this thread with more info on the next rounds before 9th May!
