During Computex 2014 HyperX will kick off the HyperX OC Takeover (HOT) 2014 campaign with a USD $10,000 invitation-only overclocking event. On June 5th, six community overclocking teams will compete against four industry teams in three different benchmarks: XTU, Memory Clock and SuperPI 32M. The cash prize purse is divided amongst the top-3 of each benchmark and varies between USD $2,000 for the top memory frequency and USD $500 for the second runner-up in the XTU category.

Following the kickoff event at Computex, HOT will start a four month-long qualification campaign featuring regional online qualifiers. The campaign starts in July in Latin-America. A total of 10 finalists (double compared to last year!) and the winner of last year’s competition will proceed to the HOT World Finals where they will compete for a USD $15,000 prize pool.
