    Hivizman's Efficiency Competition

    Greeting fellow ROG's.

    Some of you old timers will recall the contests I used to host a few years ago here on ROG. They were just for fun, no prizes at all, and open to anyone. So I am thinking that we need to have another such contest. One that will allow AMD and Intel platforms to go head to head and improve each one of our understanding of the platforms that we use.

    So let me be clear. We are not talking sub-zero cooling here. We are not talking extreme overclocking here. What we are talking is fine tuning, optimising our systems, getting the most out of what we have.



    So post up if you are up for this and if I see enough folks interested will get it going.

    Four benchmarks.

    CPU based no graphic card benchmarks sorry. Just too many and too difficult to handicap. CPU's will be capped at a frequency or a particular score. Will make sense when I list the details.
    Handicap system
    Single thread and multi thread benchmarks.
    Memory optimising is going to be key. Not high frequency as there will be a cap.


    Air cooled and water cooled - nothing below ambient allowed.


    So are you up for it. I expect all my old mates to be in this contest and as many of the newer guys do join in. We had heaps of fun last time just ask Arne, Menthol, Dartmaul and all the others that took part.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.
