Icon17 MSI Afterburner Overclocking competition

MSI will launch a worldwide “pure VGA overclocking competition” from 2009/11/18 to 2009/12/18. It will be only for MSI N9000/N200/R4000/R5000 graphics card + afterburner, so almost every MSI customer can join this event.

This event is totally different from the other VGA competition. We don’t focus on “highest performance”, but this time we focus on the “highest overclocking percentage”. So winner may not use the best card like GTX 295 or HD 4870x2, but 9400GT or HD 4350 if they can squeeze the biggest overclocking capability from it….

We will also have another small competition under the same structure - “afterburner skin competition”, to collect more cool and nice skin for afterburner.

This competition will be held in the forums of Guru3d website, under the discussion section of official afterburner forum: http://forums.guru3d.com/forumdisplay.php?f=18

Contest micropage cannot be given yet.

or consider soldering those chips on the GT 220
I find no other info at remote site about this compo?
what tool will be measured OC performance? pure clock? than maybe your 1.3ghz GPU on the 220 is enough

I'm not skilled enough to transfer memory chips. In addition, the main issue is the low-profile PCB as that is what's making the chips cool down so rapidly.

- Use MSI Afterburner V1.3.0 to overclock the card, have CPU-Z 1.52 to show the GPU model name and run FurMark V1.7.0 to prove stability
- scoring method: (oc gpu clock - ref gpu clock) / ref gpu clock) = score
- Furmark has to run for 600 seconds to prove stability
- You can only join as guru3d member
- Provide screenshot / picture of system

Funny how Guru3D probably insisted on using CPU-Z rather than GPU-Z as GPU-Z is from TechpowerUP ...

interesting, so your GT 220 score has a chance

Yes, but it has a reference clock of 675, whereas the GT240 has one of 550.

The GT240 has the same 40nm die, so it'll clock the same (1300-ish).
