The first round of the ASUS ROG OC Showdown launches tomorrow and runs until 26th September. The contest invites overclockers from HWBOT’s Rookie, Novice and Enthusiast leagues to compete using any ASUS motherboard and ambient cooling (no lower than 30°C). Round 1 involves three stages; Intel XTU, GPUPI for CPU - 1B and HWBOT x265.
In terms of prizes this contest has lots to offer thanks to partners Seasonic, Der8auer, the Open Benchtable Project, Thermal Grizzy and of course ASUS. Prizes for Round 1 include ASUS Strix X99 and ROG Maximus VIII Impact motherboards, Seasonic power supplies and Kryonaut thermal paste from Thermal Grizzly.
Round 2 of the contest will run from October 28th to November 28th. At the conclusion Round 2, points from both Rounds 1 and 2 will be tallied to determine an overall winner. The overall winner will be awarded prizes that include a next-generation ROG motherboard, an Open Benchtable, a Delid-Die-Mate tool, plus an exclusive ROG OC Showdown Formula Series 2016 trophy. Second and third placed runners-up will also receive a next-generation ROG motherboard, an Open Benchtable kit and a Delid-Die-Mate tool.
But wait, that’s not all. Contestants can also earn bonus points by carrying out mystery activities, which will be revealed on the competition page during the contest. Plus, prize draws running for the duration of the competition will see contestants drawn at random to win ROG T-shirts, exclusive ROG 10th-anniversary goodies and tubes of Thermal Grizzly thermal paste.
