Established in 2012, ASUS Open Overclocking Cup was at first a local event for enthusiasts from Russia and Ukraine. It went international in 2013, becoming Europe’s major overclocking competition with the best overclockers from 15 countries of Europe and the CIS participating. The qualifications for ASUS Open Overclocking Cup 2014 will take place from August 15 to September 15, 2014, on the basis of the largest overclocking database HWBot.org.
Overclockers will need to show their best skill and experience to qualify for the final event. They will also be competing for ASUS's newest Republic of Gamers mainboards based on Intel’s X99 chipset. These extra prizes will be awarded to the leaders of the first three weeks of the qualifications. The top 14 overclockers who achieve the best results with the Intel Devil Canyon processor will proceed to the final. The top two overclockers who achieve the best results with the Intel Pentium G3258 will also be able to compete in the AOOC 2014 final. The prize fund of the AOOC 2014 final amounts to an impressive USD $10,000 with valuable prizes from ASUS Republic of Gamers as extra bonuses.

Winner Selection Process
The Top-14 of the contest qualify for the ASUS Open Overclocking Cup 2014 Final. The winners are divided in two groups. Group 1 is formed by the positions 1 to 7, Group 2 is formed by positions 8 to 14. Starting with the winner of the qualifier going to #7, the overclockers in Group 1 can select a team member from the pool of overclockers in Group 2. The overclockers will be paired in a team to compete at the Final.
On a daily basis from September 16, starting from the winner ending with position 7, each Top-7 overclocker must make a post in the official ASUS Open Overclocking Cup 2014 Qualifier forum thread announcing their team mate. If no post is made, the participant will be skipped and the choice will go to the participant next in line. For clarification, here's the team mate selection agenda.
- September 16, 2014: Winner appoints team mate
- September 17, 2014: Runner-up appoints team mate
- September 18, 2014: Second runner-up appoints team mate
- September 19, 2014: #4 appoints team mate
- September 20, 2014: #5 appoints team mate
- September 21, 2014: #6 appoints team mate
- September 22, 2014: #7 appoints team mate
One wildcard is available for overclockers who compete with the Pentium G3258 Anniversary Edition. The wildcard team is formed by the Top-2 Pentium overclockers.
If you are part of Group 2, you are not allowed to reject your Group 1 team mate. By participating in the competition, you agree to comply to this pairing method. Overclockers need to choose between competing with the Devil's Canyon or the Pentium CPUs. Only participants who compete with the Pentium exclusively are eligible for the wildcard. ASUS reserves the right to reject anyone from participating. The decision does not require justification and will not be discussed.
