ok, so does skill make any difference in this competition or is it your hardware and method choice? ie, if 2 people use the same hardware and same cooling method, they should get the same max stable overclock. so how the f*ck is this a competition? i never understood that

it's a competition much like any other. in racing it's a matter of driver and car, here it's a matter of operator and technique. There are different ways to maximize scores - it's not just about hitting the highest frequencies. Compare this with that car spots thing the crazy rich oil dudes do on that desert track they built a few years ago (forgot the name) - all cars are similar, and the only difference is finetuning and drivers - that's the same as here.

Well you should also consider that even though the components may be the same, their overclock potential may be different between batches of processors.

not unlike car engines, bows, surfboards and other equipment used for sports ... but sure there are variations.

But yet they are there and you are...where? On the internet ridiculing? Your comment only shows that you seem to be lacking in the mental ability to achieve something like this. Why don't you grab your little eMachine and go try it out for awhile then come back and try and talk.

@thomas989
Exactly what i was getting at. Unlike racing, if the technique is the same and you use the part part, result will be the same. overclocking is mostly about controlling temperatures and voltage.

@ Tards r Us
I'm not running a little eMachine. I'm running a custom machine i built myself with an overclocked e6750 G0 stepping @ 3.6 ghz and I can probably get more out of it if i didn't want my temp past 60 degrees and my voltage past 1.40v on the core.
they aren't achieving anything anyone else wouldn't be able to do with the same exact equipment and materials.

@ Fautso,
it's a competition nontheless.
And if you think that every single same chip gets the exact same results then you have a lot to learn about overclocking...

And i would like to see you volt mod your system and use LN to achieve your highest possible clock. You know, since it takes no skill at all right?
