Frigid CPU temperatures, dewars full of LN2 and world-class hardware enthusiasts all in one place is the setting for the very first Overclockers.com Benching Team Party. This is the first officially organized Overlockers.com event, and hopefully there will be more in the near future. The best part is, the three day benching extravaganza can be seen live via several streaming video feeds.
Today we will take a high level look into the world of benchmarking. More specifically we will be looking at 13 point scoring benchmarks listed at hwbot.org as well as the more common utilities used for overclocking and submitting scores to their system as well as system information and monitoring their system.
