The RealBench Challenge runs until December 5th on OC-ESPORTS and is divided into four separate rounds, or Challenges, each with specific rules and limitations. It’s only been a week or so since Challenge I of the ASUS RealBench Challenge 2016 contest concluded with French overclocker Wizerty taking top spot, but have no fear folks, Challenge II is right around the corner.
Staring on September 30th, Challenge II will run until October 10th and offers a slightly different challenge from the first as processor clock speeds are limited to no higher than 4,200MHz. As with Challenge I, no Socket 2011-3 processors are allowed and hardware cooling is restricted to non-extreme methods i.e. CPUs must be shown to be over 30 degrees Celsius.
The contest is open to HWBOT members from all leagues. Combatants must use the custom HWBOT version of the RealBench app. A more complete listing of all the rules, limitations and scoring can be found here. Remember, prizes are awarded to the winners at the end of each Challenge, but don’t forget that the main prizes on offer include next-generation ROG motherboards for the top three finishers.
