Default HWC OC Challenge #7: February Team Cup Warm-Up

Contest closed! Thanks for participating!

Welcome one and all to the (Not Officially) Official Hardware Canucks Overclocking Team! If you are new to the team, and want to learn more about what it is all, um, about, please see the introductory team thread here. How many times can I say about? About this many, I guess.


To kick off the 2014 HWC Overclocking Team Championship Cup season, we'll be pitting ourselves against other Overclocking Teams from around the world in the February Team Cup Warm-Up! This is an official, five-stage hwbot competition. Could there possibly be a more awesome way to start the year?!

Contest Guidelines

Guidelines for each stage of the competition are outlined on the hwbot page. The overall competition page can be found here. You may participate in as many or as few stages as you wish. You can even post a score for all five stages! Each of the five stages are:

#1: Cloud Gate GT 610 ~ Guidelines here
#2: HWBOT Prime AMD 1xCPU
~ Guidelines here
#3: wPrime 32M Pentium II ~ Guidelines here
#4: Rare Vendor 3DMark03
~ Guidelines here
#5: SDR-Ram Memory Clock
~ Guidelines here

Background image to be used in all submissions (use download link for 1920x1080 or attachment below for 1024x576). Without this background image in your verification screenshot, your contest entry will be invalid.

CPU-Z At minimum, open two instances and show the CPU and Memory tabs in your verification screenshot.

Just the main Graphics Card tab is needed. If GPU-Z reports your video card incorrectly, a different reporting program may also be used. Note that GPU-Z must show that SLI is enabled.

And each of the benchmarks for the five stages of competition:
#1: 3DMark
#2: HWBOT Prime
#3: wPrime
#4: 3DMark03
#5: CPU-Z

Contest entries will be accepted until the end of the month - February 28, 2014. The official time stamp for a contest entry is based on when the score is submitted to and accepted by hwbot as part of the competition.

How to Participate

Once you have your bestscore for any stage of the competition, submit it using here. It is important that you use this link to submit, as using the usual submission link won't link your score to the competition. Make sure your submission is in compliance with both the specific rules for each benchmark and the general rules. After you have submitted your score to, post the link to your submission in this thread to enter. Good luck, and may the best overclocker win!


In this contest, participants are competing on behalf of the HWC Overclocking Team against other top teams from around the world. Participants will also receive points towards the Championship Cup Series. Points will be distributed to contest participants as follows in each stage:

A submission used by HWC OC Team in the final standings = 5 Points
Any other submissions = 2 Points

If you post the best score on the team in all five stages, you could earn up to 25 points in the Championship Cup standings, which would have been enough to earn you third place for all of 2013!
