Last Friday evening we launched our latest overclocking contest on HWBOT, Pi is Returned. The big news with this contest is that AMD and ourselves have managed to stump up some nice fat cash prizes – over 5 grand in total as well as some pretty attractive hardware prizes too.

The idea is pretty simple: Two AMD platforms – FM2/1 & AM3+ - on two classic benchmarks – Super Pi 1M and Super Pi 32M. Here’s the break down of stages and prizes in more detail:
