OK Master Jedi...I 'm still checking the site out, some crazy stuff there. : )
Holy swiss cheese batman, i980x running at 6,930 Mhz? How do you compete with that?

LOL... I am far from being a master Jedi in these parts... Still a Padawan like yourself.

There are plenty of Jedis here though, so you'll have good and knowledgeable people guiding you through your quest in voiding warranties.

Well, I don't and never really did care about my warranties. Blown a few chips and motherboard controller chips - last one actually popped apart and scared the *#&* out of me.

I had a GPU explode and spit sparks all over my mobo, that count?


The short answer on the 7ghz is: You don't.
You compete against people that have your same hardware, for "HardWare Points", there will still be some people on liquid nitrogen that you can't touch, but plenty on air/water too.
Later when you're feeling ambitious you can get yourself a 980x and some ln2 and have at it

OR 100's of 980x's and lots of ln2 and find your own 6.8ghz benchable 980x

Well, I might try it, who can afford 100's of 980x's to burn? some people I guess. Do the winners get some kind of prize, or is it just for bragging rights?

Most of the time just bragging rights. Hundreds is an exaggeration, but those folks do bin a lot of chips. They don't pay $1000 per chip; they'll buy one, test it, sell it if it's not strong enough at a reduced price. They probably invest a couple hundred more each time, but not full price. I certainly don't have that kind of dough, but some do.

Guys with top chips usually get them for free. Those 6.9ghz vantage chips dont exactly come out of nowhere.

Yea, for gigabyte or asus a tray of 980x's really isn't that expensive, especially if it sells a couple of boards.

Yessir. Start working 2d and learn your CPU then move to 3d!

CPUz, SuperPi 1M & WPrime 32M are going to be the 'easiest' to run at higher clocks (meaning they require less stability). They are what I use to feel out the limits of my chips. After that, I work on the longer benches that require much more stability than those. Feel free to start your own quest-for-20boint / team membership thread in the benching section. List the hardware you're working with. Lots of team members are happy to help you get there.
