System Pictures No Longer Mandatory For Enthusiast Submissions

Following the release of our simplified Overclockers Ranking system which features one overview table and one league table for each of the overclocker groups, we also removed the requirement for system pictures to gain points for enthusiasts. We removed this rule with the following argumentation:

  • It is a fairly weak rule in terms of validation or verification
  • The pictures are usually of poor quality or not interesting (eg: just a case)
  • The rules are more streamlined

In addition we find that only a fraction of the new Rookie overclockers attach a picture to their benchmark submission. By removing the rule, we can give Rookies their first HWBoints and hopefully excite them to participate in the Overclockers Ranking.

The rule is applied retro-actively, which means all old results which did not yield points because of a lack of system picture should now be yielding points. The staff reserves the right to block a result in case of doubt. We also reserve the right to request additional verification.

Thank you for our understanding.

The HWBOT Staff.

Maybe is a good idea for encourages people to use extreme cooling solution but I believe that in this way it's easy to find people that use TEC or Chiller although they are in enthusiast league.

how can we avoid it?

The problem is that the picture rule does not solve these issues. You can just take a picture with a watercooler on your card and still use extreme cooling methods.

In addition there were almost no problems during the last few years. So no reason to keep the rule.

"

Exactly. The picture rule was worthless. Good riddance.

Maybe add a photo requirement for old CPUs? Will make verifying the right category easier.

+1 for this. Especially cpu's which cpu-z cannot read correctly.

It'll be too complicated to have different rules for different categories. If it's unclear we can always request pictures as additional proof in special cases.

You can have a general rule; if cpu-z info differs from the specifications of the CPU, attach a picture of the CPU.
