    Hello,

    I would use the extra time given to me by the 4 Way Auto Tuning to write even more love letters to my girlfriend, Taylor Swift.

    Thank you.

    It would give me another 10 min worth of time to work on getting my Asus board that I purchased last week up and working properly. I hate bios / board problems on brand new electronics.

    I would use the extra time to play more games, and do more work. Well not really do more work, it would eat into playing game time :).

    Performing a regular overclock usually takes me days of stress testing and fine-tuning.
    By using the Asus auto-tuning function to overclock and find optimal settings in 10 minutes, I could use the extra 3 days to take my wife & kids on a camping trip.

    I will post pictures of the camping trip if I win!

    I would use that time to play more games, surf the internet more, and find out ways of getting even more performance out of my rig.

    I'd put it to good use: less time tweaking means more time WCG crunching :D

    I'd use the time to keep an eye on my SSD array speeds as the mobo optimizes itself...and maybe crack open a cold one too. :D

    I would actually try to hit the 96th percent! Instead of stopping at 95% cause I ran out of time :)

    I would start folding for a cure, representing the [H] & Asus. The time savings would calculate into more chances to find a cure.

    I would sit back and admire the beauty of the system build based on an Asus Haswell motherboard; liquid cooled, of course. :D

    Oooh, the contest ends on my birthday (hint hint :p)

    Since I would only be spending 10 mins on clocking I would spend the gained time tearing down my current system, taking pictures, and making a fancy f/s thread here on [H]

    Good luck everyone

    Less time to tweak, more time to fold for the [H]orde...

    I would use the time to rip this POS z87 board I have in my system now out. My last three MB's have been Asus, this time I didn't go with Asus. That was a big mistake. Now not only have I wasted time trying to get this MB to OC as good as an Asus MB, but I've also wasted money!! Lesson learned, always go Asus!!
