Overclocking for a Cause: Turrican Memorial Charity Challenge

Add Your Comments

As if you needed another reason to up those voltages, HWBOT and Overclockers.at have launched an overclocking competition in memory of Turrican. The proceeds will benefit a children’s hospital in Austria. Prizes have been generously donated by Noctua and EKWB.

Full details available at HWBOT.org:

“Overclockers.at and HWBOT invite you to join us in honoring his name by participating in the donation campaign for an Austrian children hospital dedicated to researching cancer especially for young patients.

For this donation campaign overclockers.at has redesigned Karl’s “Hardware Terminator” shirts and made them available in the overclockers.at web shop in multiple cuts and colors. They will be printed on demand in small by a little company here in Austria and shipped by us as soon as they are ready. To be able to buy one, you have to donate at least 5 Euros to the donation campaign. We let the amount of the donation open to your choosing. Every Euro is appreciated and will be directly forwarded as it is. The proceedings of the whole campaign will be officially handed over to St. Anna Kinderspital in February next year. More details on that as soon as possible.

Together with our friends from Noctua, EK Water Blocks, overclockers.at and HWBOT teamed up to present you the Turrican Memorial Charity Challenge! It’s a contest with two stages using GPUPI, the benchmark I dedicated to Turrican a few weeks ago. The first stage is called “Turrican’s Choice” and focuses on old hardware. Run GPUPI in 1B on the oldest CPU possible and overclock the hell out of it afterwards. The oldest chip with the fastest run wins! Yes, you know you wouldn’t stand a chance if Karl could participate. The second stage is GPUPI in 1B for graphics cards all out. The fastest run wins, whatever it takes! We would like to see some crazy 290s on liquid nitrogen here, so be ready to refill your containers.”
