Overclocking Competition: Germany Edges Past USA 8-2
The results from Overdrive Germany are in! David Schöppe, Andreas Bock and Manuel Wiesner from Team BenchBros achieved the best results. The Core 2 Duo E8600 processor worked with a frequency of up to 5.8 GHz while the GPU of the XFX Geforce GTX was overclocked from 280 to 900 MHz.
BenchBros triumphed over the U.S. team’s records in the areas of PIFast 4.1, Super PI 1.5 1m, WPrime 1.55 32m and WPrime 1.55 1024m. They did similarly in almost all the 3D marks.
But there was still enough liquid nitrogen for Team macSave – made up of Jürgen Augstein and Dominikus Baur – to shake things up.
