The Challenger Divisions represent the heart and soul of competitive overclocking on OC-ESPORTS. Seven unique divisions, each containing five individual stages make it the arena where all tastes, budgets and abilities are catered for. It doesn’t matter if you are a rookie overclocker with a thing for AMD chips, a old timer who enjoys tweaking decades old systems, or of course an Elite player looking to prove a point - you can find a competitive spot to call your own in the Challenger Divisions.

In Stage 1 he buried the opposition with a Super Pi 32M run of 14min 59sec 250ms using an A10-7870K pushed just a touch to reach 3,996MHz. Belgian Apprentice pasatoiutd came second with a run of 15min 5sec 953ms."
