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.
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,
> 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
The Cryorig R1 Universal, Noctua NH-U14S, Be Quiet! Dark Rock 3 and Scythe Mugen MAX will be used as prizes for the 4 winners. The more the category is anticipated, the more expensive your prize will be. All other prizes will be used in the random drawings. Good luck competitors!

Humans need music in their lives. Everybody wants a sound system that easily connects, looks stylish and sounds great. Bang & Olufsen is a company that tries to take all these properties and put it into their speakers/sound systems. Their new M3 Multiroom speaker, the little brother of the M5, is a shot to take these qualities and take it to another level. Including connectivity through Apple Airplay, Google Cast and Bluetooth. With an app you can control everything very easy and to make sure you can use multiple speakers there is a coupling feature.

Bluetooth speakers are hot these days, especially when you can easily carry them around to use in places where big speakers would be a hassle. The speaker we're discussing today belongs to the ultra-portable class of bluetooth speakers as it easily fits in your pockets. In this branch of speakers there's a lot that can go wrong with the speaker. Due to their small size, many ultra-portable speakers are limited in volume, warmth, depth and battery life.

Nvidia - AI that removes text and digital noise from photos
Researchers from NVIDIA, Aalto University and MIT developed a new deeplearning method with which they can remove a significant amount of noise from photos. To correct the photo, they only need the corrupted version.
Researchers at NVIDIA have been working on an indredible deep learning method that can edit images and can reconstruct corrupted images. When a certain image has missing pixels or holes, the AI is able to fill up the holes and reconstruct a realistic image.
