HWC Overclocking Challenge #2: All-Out Ice Storm
 
1 Attachment(s)
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.


Introduction

Round one was fun, round one is done, now it's time for another one!

Our first overclocking challenge was a resounding success, with lots of members submitting excellent SuperPi 32M scores. We are shifting gears now, from benching our CPUs to beching our GPUs! Let's see who can post the best score using the new 3DMark (2013) Ice Storm benchmark! Unlike our last challenge - there are no limits this time around. You may use any hardware at any speed to achieve the best possible score.


Contest Guidelines

Use the new 2013 3DMark (download link below) and run either all tests or the Ice Storm test at default settings. Note that only your Ice Strom score will be used in this contest if you run all tests. Use any processor(s) and any video card(s) at any speed. Using Lucid Virtu is expressly forbidden - so don't do it! Your screen shot must show all of the following:

  • Your overall 3DMark score
  • Graphics score
  • Physics score
  • Graphics test 1 fps
  • Graphics test 2 fps
  • Physics fps
  • CPU-Z CPU tab
  • CPU-Z Memory tab
  • CPU-Z Mainboard tab (only mandatory for submissions using an IGP)
  • GPU-Z

To enter this contest, you will need the following:

Background image to be used in all submissions (use download link for 1920x1080 or attachment below for 1024x768). Without this background image in your verification screenshot, your contest entry will be invalid.

3D Mark (2013). Note that a link to your online result is not required for this contest, but you are certainly free to provide one if you wish.

CPU-Z Ė at minimum, open two instances and show the CPU and Memory tabs in your verification screenshot. Those submitting a score from an AGP must also open the Mainboard tab.

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

Contest entries will be accepted from 12:01 AM EDT on April 1, 2013 until 11:59 PM EDT on April 30, 2013. The official time stamp for a contest entry is based on when the submission link is posted in this thread.

How to Participate

Once you have your best 3DMark Ice Storm score, submit it using hwbot.org here. Make sure your submission is in compliance with both the specific Hardware Canucks contest rules and the general hwbot.org rules for 3DMark (2013) Ice Storm. After you have submitted your score to hwbot.org, post the link to your submission in this thread to enter. Good luck, and may the best overclocker win!

Awards

In this contest, participants are competing for points towards the Championship Cup Series. Points will be distributed to contest participants as follows:

1st place = 10 points
2nd place = 7 points
3rd place = 5 points
4th place = 3 points

There's definitely something going on there with your result, I got over 10,000 with 2x670s before I sold them

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-3770K Processor,Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. Z77X-UD5H score: P10407 3DMarks

Your gpu score is crazy low:sad:

I know G777 the score is wrong for sure.
It seems limited to 3DMark though because when I run Unigine it comes out with a decent/expected score.

Apparently there are some issues with multi-gpu configurations in that test

Maybe run firestrike with sli disabled and see what you get...

I'm not that concerned with an artificial benchmark... unless you guys decide to have a OC challenge on Fire one of these days. :ph34r:
I figure a new driver release will fix 'er up eventually... and break something else in the process no doubt. :haha:
