RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
- Soldiers will receive a set of mainboard and graphics card for modification prior to MOA APAC 2011 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 would 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 can not use any computer products not provided by MOA, such as USB flash drives, DVD/CD-ROM, HDD.
- During the assmbling 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 the Mainboard & VGA is NOT allowed in the competition.
- During the benchmark period, soldiers can update their result at any time. After Judges have apporved the result, the scoreboard will be updated and reflected as team’s authorized result.

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.

- Task 1: Super Pi 32M result, CPU-Z (CPU/Memory/Mainboard tabs)
- Task 2: 3DMark11 result, GPU-Z, CPU-Z (CPU, Memory/Mainboard tabs)
- For Task 1, Super Pi 32M, the CPU ratio will be fixed at most 50. Judge will also check it when soldiers submit the result.
- Final Score includes Super Pi 32M (40% weighted) and 3DMark11 (60% weighted) overclocking performance growth score.
- For example, Team 1 gets 250% performance growth over standard score on Super Pi 32M and 200% on 3DMark11, then their final score will be 220%.
