The Systems...cont'd

It may look crude, but Leslens' ducting design worked out positively for him in the competition that he was crowned winner for the air-cooling category. If you want to join next year's ABIT overclocking competition, you should start doing your homework now.

Together with his buddy (someone to help look after the system and for moral support), Leslens (on the right), is a humble NTU student who despite of early setbacks in the Super PI and 3DMark05 benchmarks, emerged as a deserving winner with his simple yet effective cooling theme.

Seated on the right of Leslens was Sin22, the second contestant in the open category. Even though his setup was less elaborate than our dear Batam friend, it was efficient enough to help him edge out Mr Asyhadi Minata as the winner of the open category.

Reusing the same rig used for last year's ABIT overclocking competition, Geosin's version was unfortunately unable to propel him to victory. But to be fair, cooling is only one part of an overclock attempt; the quality and envelope of the components used are critical to success as well.
