Competition: Black Hole Mayhem

Submitted by Robbie Pyckhout on Mon, 08/18/2014 - 00:44

Before we start, I'd like to thank all our sponsors for their awesome products they submitted to make this competition possible!


It's finally there! The Black Hole Mayhem, a competition for all enthousiasts and overclockers to go totally crazy! Before you enter your score to the server, be VERY sure you followed all the rules visible on this page. You got only 1 single chance to submit a score, don't throw this away.

As mentioned in the announcement, the event will run from today, 18 August, until 27 August. The day after, we'll declare the winners of the contest and the random drawings.

During these 10 days there'll be a competition in four divided categories to give a chance to almost everyone to participate and compete.
These categories will be divided by threads, having one for each: 4 threaded, 6 threaded, 8 threaded and 12 threaded machines. Machines with 2 or 3 threads may join the 4threads category. Machines with more than 12 threads are sad enough forbidden.
Participants will be able to join the competition by filling in a webform on the site very carefully, the graphs will be updated every day. Scroll down for more information about the graphs.
The four winners will be awarded with awesome prizes provided by our sponsors.
Prize value is based on how popular a category of benchmarking is. The winner from the least anticipated/popular group will as a consequence receive the least valuable prize, for example.
Our sponsors, Scythe, Cryorig, Be Quiet! and Noctua were so friendly to support us of 4 awesome coolers for the winning participants!
In any case, we also have prizes from sponsors dedicated to random drawings, so that anyone can join and have a chance at winning. This also enables some users the chance to win TWO prizes in our giveaway! In total, we assembled a prizes value of 695 Euro.
Be sure about which score to submit since you’ll be able to submit only one score for the competition to prevent people making their chances bigger to win a prize with the random drawings.
Examples of these prizes are a nice Case from Aerocool and an AMD APU! Scroll down for the complete list.
We will be checking multiple information fields to catch duplicate entries, so don’t even try to cheat, because you might find yourself disqualified.
Make sure to follow the rules and regulations, as strict measures will be taken against those who don’t abide by them.


!Important! These are the minimum requirements for entry:
    - An account on the site (against spambots)
    - We’re not responsible of any hardware damage caused by heat and overvoltage,
      run the benchmark and overclock at your own risk
    - Only two score submission per person
    - No thread/core disabling
    - Included in screenshot:
          > Version 1.70 from CPUz or newer
> Wallpaper Download Here
> Notepad with Username, date and 'BlackHoleTec' on it.
> Black Hole Benchmark V4.2 Final with scores, found in ‘Benchmark’ Tab → Download
    - CPU-Z Verification-link
    - Windows XP or newer
We’d also like to warn you of certain common bugs in our latest release and give you some advice:
- 8Threaded CPUs sometimes score lower on the 4threaded test, they seem to try running the 4 tasks on 2 threads. 4-core i7s and FX 8-cores encounter this problem
- An older OS than XP will result in inaccurate scores due to a bug, that’s why these operating systems are not allowed
- Program appears to freeze during benchmark - no problem, it’s still computing the tasks, and will become responsive again once completed **Do not interrupt the process or you will have to start over!**
- If you can’t get the program to run, try the fix on our support page
