Default FutureMark 3DMark11 Overclocking Competition

Futuremark® announces details of its next 3DMark 11 overclocking contest, sponsored by Gainward. The worldwide competition, which starts next week and runs until September 26, features three different ways to win based on speed, power and precision. Prize details and rules can be found online: http://www.3dmark.com/competitions/g...-overclocking/

"Gainward’s leading edge VGA products have served worldwide gamers’ demands for decades, and we believe all overclockers will enjoy the extreme overclocking capability of Gainward’s fabulous products in this contest," said Paul Sun, General Manager at Gainward Technology International Ltd.

This segment is open to all owners of Gainward GeForce® graphics cards. To enter, submit your score using 3DMark 11 performance preset. The highest score wins the top prize of USD $1000 cash and a hardware bundle including a Thortech Thunderbolt PLUS 800W PSU with iPower Meter, RunCore Pro V 2.5" SATA II Plus 120GB SSD and an Enermax ETS-T40 Cooler.

This segment is open to all 3DMark 11 users with all brands of PC hardware. Each week of the contest will feature a different precision overclocking challenge where the aim is to hit a specific score target. In the first week, for instance, submitting a score ending with the number 560 - for example X1560, P5560 or E7560 - could win you a Gainward GeForce® GTX 560 1024MB "Phantom" graphics card. Gainward GeForce® GTX 570 and 580 graphics cards will be up for grabs in later weeks.

All 3DMark 11 scores submitted to 3DMark.com using GeIL brand memory during the four week contest will be entered into a special GeIL memory lucky draw. Winners will be randomly drawn from registered 3DMark.com users. To double your chance of winning, share your result on Facebook using the "Share this result" feature on 3DMark.com.

"Thortech Power is proud to be the power supply partner of the exciting Futuremark Gainward Overcloking Competition," said Hank Cheng, Marketing Director at Thortech. "For any high performance OC or gaming system, the efficiency and quality of the power supply is critical. That is why the full line of Thortech Thunderbolt PLUS Series is 80PLUS Gold certified and equipped with the innovative interactive PSU iPower Meter to provide users with 100% control and monitoring of their PSU."
