Asus Online Overclocking Challenge
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (7 February 2014) – The recently concluded ASUS Malaysia Online OverClocking Challenge – Chinese New Year OC Quickie, with a total of 48 submissions from enthusiasts all over the country came to a conclusion on the 31st January, 2014. The less-then-2-weeks online challenge at Lowyat.NET Forum was based on Intel Socket 1155/1156 platform without cooling limitation. The benchmark used for the challenge was Super PI 32M. Although Super Pi is based on the legacy x87 instructions set, it is still considered as the “main” OC Benchmark in the OverClocking scene. Most of the World OverClocking Championships still make use of the mentioned benchmark for its CPU-centric benchmark.
