Yesterday we officially announced the winners of our ‘Pi is Returned’ contest on HWBOT.org. We had $5,000 USD up for grabs with four stages centered on the classic Super Pi benchmark. As my buddy Dino has posted a few times already, the contest inspired a few overclockers to break couple of AMD world records – in fact several records were repeatedly smashed on the finale weekend alone.
