From August 15 until September 15, European and CIS based overclockers could qualify for the ASUS Open Overclocking Cup 2014 Final in Moscow, Russia. The finals are taken place in Moscow Cyber Stadium, a special venue for Esports. On November 22 and 23, in ice-cold temperatures, 8 teams of 2 overclockers will be competing in four benchmarks using the X99 platform. Amongst the participants we see the current #1 and #2 from the Overclockers League, 8 Pack and Smoke. The quality of the field is very high as we find Wizerty (winner of the MSI MOA 2014 No Limits Battle) as well as Xtreme Addict and Perica_barii who also participated in the MSI MOA 2014 Grand Finals.
The competition system consists of the following components: Intel Core i7 5960X, ASUS Rampage V Extreme, ASUS Strix GTX 980, Corsair Vengeance LPX 2800C16, Corsair AX1200i and of course loads of liquid nitrogen!
