RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
Lock n’ Load:
- Soldiers will receive a set of mainboard and graphics card for modification prior to MOA 2011 Worldwide Grand Final and must carry them to the event. MSI will prepare another set of mainboard and graphics card as a back-up in the contest. If both sets of weaponry are crashed, MSI will not provide additional gear.
- Soldiers are required to use the computer equipment provided by MOA, but bringing your own overclocking gear (cooler, copper container, thermal bottles…etc.) and electronic equipment (multimeter, thermometer) is allowed.
- Soldiers cannot use any computer products not provided by MOA, such as USB flash drives, DVD/CD-ROM, HDD.
- During the assembling and modification session, LN2 is allowed to be used. Soldiers are free to try all the benchmarks programs, but submitting results are only allowed during Battle Rounds.
- Any modification or change to the BIOS code of MB & VGA is NOT allowed in the competition.
- During the benchmark period, soldiers can update their results at any time. After Judges have checked the result, the scoreboard will be updated and reflected as the team’s result. The final approval will be done at the end of the round after all the screenshot verification.
- There is no time limit for updating results during the benchmark round.
- After the Battle Round has finished, benchmark results cannot be updated anymore and the most recent update of the result will be your final score.
- The Master Judge has the right to ask soldiers to re-run benchmarks to verify results.
REQUIREMENTS FOR VICTORY
- When the benchmark process comes to an end, soldiers must call upon a Judge to come and check their benchmark score.
The score will be confirmed and submitted with a screenshot.
Each screenshot must include MOA official wallpaper and following elements:
- Task 1 : SuperPI 32M result, CPU-Z (CPU/Memory/Mainboard tabs)
- Task 2 : 3DMark11 result, GPU-Z, CPU-Z (CPU/Memory/Mainboard tabs)
- Task 3 : 3DMark2001 SE result and Details tab, GPU-Z, CPU-Z (CPU/Memory/Mainboard tabs)
- For Task 1: SuperPI 32M, the CPU ratio will be fixed at most 50, and the software MSI Control Center cannot be installed and used. Judges will check this when soldiers submit their results.
- Final Score includes SuperPI 32M (35% weighted), 3DMark11 (33% weighted) and 3DMark2001 SE (32% weighted) overclocking performance growth score.
For example: If Team 1 gets 200% performance growth over standard score on SuperPI 32M ,300% on 3DMark11 and 200% on 3DMark2001 SE, then their final score will be 233%.
