Techlabs Cup Ru 2013 Live Final on March 23 in Moscow, Russia - USD $3000 Total Cash Prize

It's a pity we've only learned about this overclocking event today as the online qualification window ended four days ago. But luckily we are right in time to make the announcement about the live final of this Russian-only overclocking competition. The Techlabs Cup has been around for quite some time now, not only in Russia but also Ukraine. The competition set up is actually quite simple: submit your best overclocking results via email and the best six results qualify for the live final. The benchmarks in this year?s Techlab Cup RU were 3DMark11 Performance and SuperPI 32M. No multi-cpu or multi-gpu configurations were allowed, but you could use any type of cooling (so including liquid nitrogen).

The live competition final has quite an interesting prize pool for being a local event. The winner will go home with USD $1500, the runner-up with USD $1000 and the second runner-up (also "last place") still wins USD $500. The live overclocking event takes place in a large Moscow shopping place called Mega Khimki on March 23 from 10AM until 4PM local time. The six qualified overclockers will form three teams to compete at the booth stand, each with their own platform with hardware provided by the main sponsors of the event. The benchmark tests are the same as used in the qualification phase: SuperPI 32M and 3DMark11 Performance. The 3DMark score will have 60% weight in the final score, the SuperPI 32M score 40%.

We do not have much information on who will be participating in the event, so if you have more info on the event feel free to comment in the forums. Good luck to all participants!

I do not believe in 1st place by any means, at any cost.
