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!

Small update concerning posting of results for round 2:
I'll give you all time until Monday 16/06/2008 23h59. One second later and your result won't be accepted. As this round is just based on numbers, it shouldn't be difficult to choose a winner.
