Gigabyte Open Overclocking Championship 2010 has ended and we were there to cover the event. We were represented by Jon ”elmor” Sandström, but this time he didn’t have luck on his side and could only reach 13th place.
Jon had a series of bad CPUs that would not measure up to the needs of an overclocker doing live work, in the end it turned out the first one he tried was the best (least bad) with 5.7GHz in SuperPI, unlike the two following that could only do 5GHz.
Pieter-Jan ”Massman” Plaisier from Belgium faired better and got his hands on a processor that could do both PiFast and SuperPI at over 6GHz, which gave him the total victory. Top five qualified for the world final in Taiwan in September, without any Swedish representation, but some new names like Erdemolkun form Turkey, Matose from Romania, Perica_Barii form Serbia and slamms from Russia.
The complete results can be found here. Congratulations to those and qualified and those who didn’t, better luck next time!
