Default MSI Xtreme Speeder P55 Online Competition

Quote:
MSI launched P55 Xtreme Speed series motherboards for two months now, and countless worldwide top media gave MSI P55 the highest recommendation on performance, stability and quality. Therefore, on behalf of MSI, we invite all overclockers around the world to join the Xtreme Speeder P55 Online Competition and to challenge undiscovered extreme overclocking territory of MSI P55 and Intel Lynnfield CPU.

1. Concept

The Xtreme Speeder P55 online competition consists of one main competition, divided into three stages with each an extra challenge. Although this sounds extremely complicated in theory, you will see that it is in fact a very straight-forward and certainly most interesting competition.

The main competition consists out of three stages which will be discussed in the next paragraph. For each stage you can gather points and whoever gathers the most points in each stage wins the overall competition. Next to the main competition, there will also be prizes awarded for the winner of each stage and in addition a bonus prize for breaking a world record!

The competition period:

* Start: 15/11/2009 (15th of November 2009) 12:00:00 CEST
* End: 13/12/2009 (13th of December 2009) 12:00:00 CEST

2. Competition details

2.a. Stages

Before we go deeper into the competition, it’s important for you to understand that it is not an absolute necessity to submit a score to each stage of the competition. No submitting doesn’t lead to disqualification, but it does lower your chances of winning one of the big prizes awarded to the overall winners. In other words, it is perfectly possible to focus completely on one stage to win the prize awarded to the stage winner. Underneath a list of the three stages.

* CPU-Z: Highest CPU frequency validation
* SuperPI 32M
* Wprime 32M

2.b. Hardware requirements

As this an MSI P55 competition, we do have a couple of hardware limitations set in place to make sure the playing field is as equal as possible. Underneath a list of the competition-specific limitations.

* Processor must be Lynnfield core
* Motherboard brand must be MSI
* Retail hardware only

2.c. Scoring methodology

So, as you already know from the introduction, the overall winners are appointed using the total amount of points gathered during the three stages. Evidently, the overclocker who gathers the most points wins the competition, but this does not mean that this person has won all three stages. It is even possible to be the overall winner without winning any of the stages!

For each stage, this is the scoring algorythm:

* 1st = 10 points
* 2nd = 8 points
* 3rd = 6 points
* 4th = 5 points
* 5th = 4 points
* 6th = 3 points
* 7th = 2 points
* 8th = 1 point

In other words, the maximum amount of points that can be acquired is 30.

3. Prizes

* Overall top three prizes
o First Place: USD $2000
o Second Place: USD $1500
o Third Place: USD $1000
o Special Prize for Core i5 Overall Top Score: USD $1000
* Stage winners
o CPU-Z, SuperPI 32M, Wprime 32M: USD $1000
* World record breaker
o CPU-Z, SuperPI 32M, Wprime 32M: USD $500
* Lucky draw
o MSI Big Bang Fuzion mainboard: 1 per week (4 in total)
o MSI Big Bang limited edition book bag: 5 per week (20 in total)
Competitia se desfasoara pe HWBot. Ce ziceti baieti, va simtiti in stare?

Cam aiurea limitarea cu procu. Parerea mea e ca ar fi trebuit si o limitare la multiplier.

Manage a play-date with Monstru and I'm sure he'll hook you guys up with a motherboard

Last call, only four more days to go!
