SuperPI32M has JUST FINISHED!

Belgium (Pt1t&Massman) takes it with a time of 06:40.187

2nd to Sweden and 3rd to USA1


USA2 was plagued by condensation problems and didn't get a score posted until the final 3 minutes unfortunately it was more than 15 seconds behind the closet in 5th

Australia also ran into problems with a dead CPU AND Motherboard But what would overclocking be without a few breaks


Anyone manage to catch the speed that Belgium won with? I missed it :help:

Totally fell asleep last night (long day) so I couldn't keep scores updated.

The 3DMark Vantage round was not to good to USA2 it seems
They went through 6... thats right, 6 motherboards from what I understand

Needless to say they unfortunately failed to post a score which put them in last place :(


SPOILER ALERT (Read no further if you don't want to know who takes the cake)


















For the 3DV - Graphics portion

1) USA - 27642
2) China - 26179
3) AU - 26088

and then Sweden and Belgium


And then for the Overall score we saw the exact same order:

1) USA - 28093
2) China - 27171
3) AU - 26977

and Sweden and Belgium in order.

Unfortunately, even with Belgium's very strong first place finish in super pie, scoring second last in the subsequent two just wasn't enough and Australia who managed to pull off a solid third place finish in 3dMark just couldn't overcome the their poor second last finish in the superpi round.

Final Scores:

1) USA - Fugger & Vapor! - 24 pts
2) China - 19pts
3) Sweden -17pts
4) Belgium - 16pts
5) AU - 14pts
6) USA 2- No points 0



Congrats to our USA representatives, they take the cake...for a SECOND year in a row, proving that despite those notoriously crazy german clockers and up and coming Aussies, we still have what it takes
