In the MSI N480GTX Lightning overclocking contest, the current leader is Elmor from Sweden with a score of P9277 and a GPU overclock from 750MHz reference core clock to 1375MHz.

MSI N480GTX Lightning OC Competition Rules

  • Contestants must use the MSI N480GTX Lightning in the competition. There is no restriction on other hardware / system configuration.
  • The benchmark is 3DMark 11 P-Score.
  • Contestants must successfully upload the score to the ORB system.
  • Contestants beating the previous best record of 1450MHz core on the N480GTX Lightning can win a cash prize of US$1,000.
  • Should there be more than one contestant surpassing the 1450MHz record, the cash prize will go to the contestant with the highest clock speed. If it so happens that more than one contestant achieves the same highest speed, the cash prize will go to the one who uploads the score to the ORB first.

 

Best Performance vs Cost Competition Rules

  • Contestants can use any graphics card from the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 400 Series or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 500 Series.
  • The benchmark is 3DMark 11 P-Score.
  • Contestants must successfully upload the score to the ORB system.
