ROG is launching a new online overclocking competition named ROG OC Showdown Team Edition.

VISIT THE COMPETITION PAGE (http://oc-esports.io/#!/round/rogocs17_teamedition)

The competition is open to all overclockers, including air / water / extreme cooling. To make it fair, each of the 5 stages, will have it's own limitation. See the table below for more details:

63731

A total prize pool of USD 5,000 is up to grab in partnership with EKWB, G.skill, Seasonic, Open Benchtable and Thermal Grizzly. Both teams and individual overclockers will be awarded. Check the prizes tab for more info (http://oc-esports.io/#!/round/rogocs17_teamedition/prizes).

The scoring will be made automatically by the HWBOT engine, but teams need to be strategic on members that will submit for each of the stage to be among the Top 2 teams winning the big jackpot!

For example, let's take Stage 3 - GPUPI for CPU 1B (http://oc-esports.io/#!/round/rogocs17_teamedition/3668/gpupi_for_cpu_1b).
-> Overclockers from Rookies, Novices, Enthusiasts and Apprentice leagues can submit a score (no limitation in number of participants)
-> No cooling limitation
-> The top 2 best scores of the team will create an average and points for the overall ranking
-> The top 2 scores need to use a different CPU's model (i7 6700K and i7 7700K for example)

Akane,
So using the same stage as an example, meankeys, jab383 and myself each enter scores using a 6700k and 7700k, the best score entered by each would be considered for individual ranking (top scores), and the best score of each CPU would be used to calculate for the team score regardless of who entered the score? or can we each only submit scores from a single CPU requiring us to determine who enters a score using what CPU beforehand?

Do we have any active LN2 users on team ROG?

Les if you put a team together I am in.

Menthol

Aren't we already on the same team, or do we need to create a 2/3 man team, that's what I was trying to ask above.
I don't want to be responsible for dragging you down but yes of course I would team up with you
What's the deal with no Titan X's, 1080ti's, that may have made since last comp with the other restrictions but this comp doesn't have cooling restrictions, etc.

From OC eSports

Submission

The best score of each overclocker will contribute to one stage at a time
Per stage, the team average scoring is based on the top scores with unique hardware
All submissions must have the official competition wallpaper (Download), except Stage 1
Submissions must include a picture of the rig (MB, VGA, memory, CPU cooler) during use, except Stage 1

*For each stage, overclockers from a same team will have to use either different CPUs, chipsets or GPUs to count in the Average scoring / Team. I.e. For Stage 1, the average top 3 scores for Team A is calculated as:

Team A: Overclocker 1 uses i7 6700K
Team A: Overclocker 2 uses i5 6600K
Team A: Overclocker 3 uses i7 7700K

Drag me down funny... I cant find the link from OC e-sports?

The way I read it is we build a team from each class - Overclockers from Rookies, Novices, Enthusiasts you are in the Apprentice league I have extreme covered. As AKaNe mentioned

eams need to be strategic on members that will submit for each of the stage to be among the Top 2 teams winning the big jackpot!

For example, let's take Stage 3 - GPUPI for CPU 1B.
-> Overclockers from Rookies, Novices, Enthusiasts and Apprentice leagues can submit a score (no limitation in number of participants)
-> No cooling limitation
-> The top 2 best scores of the team will create an average and points for the overall ranking
-> The top 2 scores need to use a different CPU's model (i7 6700K and i7 7700K for example)

The first two stages are limited to the ambient cooling leagues: Novice and Rookie only in stage 1. They can be joined by enthusiasts in stage 2. One of AkaNe's points is that our ROG team has the most rookies and novices on the 'bot, although not all active. We should have no trouble coerc ... err ... persuading many with varying hardware to join in. There's lots of room for contributions in the 5 scores needed for the X265 stage.

AkaNe, does it go like it has in other such contests? The way HWBOT works in team contests like Country Cup, anyone can submit with whatever hardware meets limitations. In Country Cup, teams are formed by the country registered in the user's profile. Same here when registered on the ROG team. The best submission with one piece of hardware scores for the team. The best submission with different hardware is the second score for the team. Best submission with a third hardware type is the third score. The three scores are averaged for the team stage score. There isn't any limit on the number of entries a user can submit, nor on the number of team members trying in the stages they're eligible for. Sounds to me like the winning strategy is for everyone to try for every stage they can.

The tough stage might be reference clock where the hardware that has to vary is the chipset. We need several motherboard generations represented -- Z270, Z170, X99, Z97, Z87 etc.

I'll try TimeSpy with my air cooled Strix 1060, but it can be beat by almost any 1070 let alone 1080. Anyone else is welcome to make the team score better. Meankeys, do you use LN2 on GPUs?

meankeys
04-08-2017, 01:33 AM

I have 1080,1070,1060 Strix cards (only ASUS cards I have available at this time), the newer model 1080/1070 that I don't own have faster memory and may help if someone has a new model
The Rookie and Novice users we have on our team could be the biggest plus if they show up

Yes that's correct. You can submit as much as you want, but only your best score for each of the stage will be kept. (so only one score per stage will be submitted by you - if you meet the limitation).


Sounds to me like the winning strategy is for everyone to try for every stage they can.

That's right! As more people you have to join in, more chance you have to get all the scores you need for each of the stages. After it will be to get higher scores to be the best. Even if some people aren't active in the ROG forum, in this thread, we might have some ASUS Republic of Gamers members joining in.

jab383
04-10-2017, 01:58 PM
JustinThyme and anyone else trying to get started:

See AkaNe's tutorials in the overclocking and benchmarking section of the forum

https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?53532-How-to-create-an-account-and-join-a-team-at-HWBOT-Tutorial

https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?53528-How-to-submit-scores-on-HWBOT-Tutorials

New members using air or water cooling are classed as Rookie (Novices have 3-12 months experience) and as such are eligible for all the stages of this team contest. I suggest starting with XTU, which is easy to run, doesn't require screenshot or CPU-Z, and is covered in one of the tutorials. Be sure to download the latest version of XTU - follow the links in the Benchmarks tab at HWBOT.

An active overclocking discussion like we're trying to have here is filled with hints and help. Here is one example. Like with all such hints, try it for yourself. I think latest versions of XTU run better in Windows 8.1, second best in windows 10 and third best in windows 7. Windows 10 will work - no need to get lots of operating systems. The real hint applies to windows 8.1 and 10 and applies to XTU ONLY ( I have yet to try it in Realbench). In an administrator-priviledge command console enter:

bcdedit /set useplatformclock no

Usually that is set


bcdedit /set useplatformclock yes

"Yes" has windows using the High Precision Event Timer (HPET) for benchmarking, etc. XTU uses the HPET independently of windows, which causes a conflict. "No" removes windows from the conflict. As I say, try it for yourself comparing "Yes" and "No". For me there was about 10% difference.

Be sure to return to "Yes" before moving on to the other contest stages. Windows has to be using HPET there.

After checking through rule details, here are my plans for attempting stages 3-5.

My second best score ever in GPUPI for CPU is with a 3970X Sandy Bridge. That's what I'll use if it and the R4E still work. That should be nearly unique for a CPU and stay out of the way of people with good X99 CPUs. My 6950X is not the greatest. Likewise the 5820K - the Sandy Bridge actually beat the Haswell.

As said before, all I have for Time Spy is an air-cooled 1060. It's not a high priority for me because loading windows 10 is a pain and there are certainly 1080s and 1070s around.

For reference clock, I have M9A Z270, M8E Z170, M6E Z87, R5E10 X99 and R4E X79. I expect the Z170 and Z270 to be best with reports of around 400MHz ref clock. That would give 2 scores out of three -- the third score has to use a different chipset. Z87 using a high BCLK strap might work well. Don't really know what to expect from X99 or X79. Since many team members have only newer motherboards, I'll try X87, X99 and X79 first, then work on Z270 and Z170 only if that would improve the team score.

Gupsterg: That would be an excellent contribution - just what we need to raise that combined score - and more would be better.
The P35/G33/G31 chipset does not conflict with the high score Menthol already submitted with X48.

You are most welcome to join the ASUS Republic of Gamers team on HWBOT, then submit scores on the stage page of the contest.

Be sure to visit the ROG OC Showdown contest page at HWBOT and download the required background for the screenshot. I'm afraid you'll have to rerun with the correct background even if you don't try to coerce it any more. The rest of the validation and verification are done correctly.

The team also needs enthusiast league members in stage 2 of the contest, which runs the HWBOT x265 4K benchmark.

More x265 scores have filled in today and XTU is looking good, but this is not the time to quit.

Our former first place in the Reference Clock stage has fallen to third. The low score in that stage - mine - needs to be beaten to raise the team average.

I was chasing down your scores, only to have the Italians crush everyone. It's pretty clear to stay competitive, a team needs a REX x48, a P5 P45 variant, and any third board in the 450 range. I suspect there's an obscure chipset that will break 600 and not conflict with x48 and P45, it's kinda fun, like a hardware scavenger hunt.*

meankeys, if you put a universal block and flash the T4 bios you can get over 9000 points in TS

Menthol please explain?

There is a custom bios available for Strix 1080 that has no power target and allows a little higher voltage, some people have flashed this bios to other cards as-well with mixed results, if flashed to a different card the first displayport port is disabled as the Strix has a different port layout then standard cards. The bios allowed me to bench at 2151mhz without throttling, some cards hit over 2200mhz but not mine. The only other soft mod that I know of is the LM on the shunt resistors, which lowers the read TDP tricking the card into not throttling, I have tried that method but if your using a chiller it doesn't help much

Topyoyoguybest: You have the right of that. We have the x48 score and need a P45 or the like.

More importantly, we need 3 scores to fill out the average. Right now we have to use z270 and z170 for the team to have all 3. I have a z270 score of 440 in my pocket. If I post that as it is, the existing z270 score would be beaten and my top entry would overcome the z170 score. The team score would go down. We really need another score and p45 or the like would be wonderful.

Meankeys: I believe the T4 BIOS allows greater voltage adjustments to tweak the 1080. My ineligible 1080 gets over 9200 in TimeSpy when the voltages are done right.

Mystic6: I hope you are following this thread. Thanks for the contest entries, especially XTU and x265. One thing, though. Please edit your x265 entry to add a picture of your rig.

Gupsterg: That would be an excellent contribution - just what we need to raise that combined score - and more would be better.
The P35/G33/G31 chipset does not conflict with the high score Menthol already submitted with X48.

You are most welcome to join the ASUS Republic of Gamers team on HWBOT, then submit scores on the stage page of the contest.

Be sure to visit the ROG OC Showdown contest page at HWBOT and download the required background for the screenshot. I'm afraid you'll have to rerun with the correct background even if you don't try to coerce it any more. The rest of the validation and verification are done correctly.

The team also needs enthusiast league members in stage 2 of the contest, which runs the HWBOT x265 4K benchmark.

First place in the x265 stage now -- way to go for all those who contributed whether in the team's top five or not. I'm seeing such good scores from Ryzens the I'm tempted to try it.

As for the ref clock stage: third is better than 8th.

The Core 2 Duo models are definately the best. Since they have less cores, there is a better possibility of reaching a high FSB. You're using some pretty aggresive voltages. Are you still on the stock cooler? Active cooling over the NB is highly recommended when pushing the FSB.

Are you able to enter Windows at 600 FSB? Some options that you can try like adding 200ps to NB clock skew and maybe 100ps to CPU clock skew. Use a value of 10 for Common Peformance Level as a starting point. You can play with the CPU GTL Voltage References as well.

Oh, and be ready to reinstall Windows alot unless you have multiple copies on different SSDs.

Menthol
05-22-2017, 10:25 PM
Lol, I did water cool the CPU but not NB, I wasn't planing on going that far and I would have to get some tubing adapters for the difference in sizes, I'll play with the values you suggested

Thank you very much

You are correct on the voltages, I was able to reach the same fsb on mostly auto voltages, but can't get to where i would like, I just got the CPU from ebay for about $13 bucks specifically for this competition, now I wish I would have purchased several of them to bench

Amazon has a lot of e8400 and similar CPUs for pretty cheap, some have Prime with 2 day shipping. At least in US, you could have some new samples by 1 Jun.

Edit - also rules say no rig pic or background on stage 1. I know bot goes back and forth on other comps, but I think that 1830 XTU score meets requirements. *

Are you submitting at OC Esports? If so, submit directly at the HWBot instead using the valid url then you should be good. ;)

Those are very good Dominator modules you have there. With a bump in voltage, you should be able to hit 1200MHz easily allowing you to go over 600 FSB on the CPU. :)

Gonna reflash ROM on mobo and redo. When I was aiming for 495MHz mobo did a reboot and then had this bad CMOS checksum message on screen and kept saying checking USB, checking floppy, on and on. As if it wanted a ROM file. I pressed reset on case and mobo did that recovery shutdown/power up that is part of CrashFreeBios IIRC.

Yeah they are Dominator 5-5-5-15 2x4GB 1066MHz modules. Got the fan kit, etc. Had this CPU/mobo from launch. Still enjoy using this setup. 3.55GHz is it's ceiling, usually use 3.4GHz / 378MHz FSB / 1058MHz. The P5K Premium Black Pearl been solid. And it has not had light use in my hands ;) . I got screenies of it doing 175hrs continuous f@h on some Fury X just few months ago.

Hey Menthol - was in San Bernardino but moved to Riverside a few years ago. Beaumont to be exact. You?

So, I just submitted a score of 462 for Round 4 which I thought was enough to knock us up one place and then I realized it's not the sum total but the average of the top 3 scores :-( Still, I'm glad I didn't know that or I might not have pushed so hard.

Copy and paste of address of sub then equals fail on submit. This included https://, I then changed only url from https://valid.x86.fr/chln2e to http://valid.canardpc.com/chln2e it worked. So did sub ob oc-esports same way and all AOK. It was more hard work getting the sub done then gaining the OC :o .

I will try to another sub. Gonna swat up on how best to gain more, but as it's Q6600 it may not gain more. In hindsight should grabbed a dual core, cheap enough.
