The OC Show Season 4, Episode 12: OC-ESPORTS Roundup, GALAX GOC 2017, Overclocking Unlocked Thailand and Core i9 7980XE

Episode 12 of the OC Show was broadcast live on the OverClocking-TV TwitchTV channel at its regular Friday night time slot last week. Show host Trouffman was joined by guests Toolius and Buildzoid, who together took on a mammoth list of overclocking related topics. Firstly however, Toolius kicks off the show with a rundown of what is going on OC-EPSPORTS where Gunslinger and jccman1965 are battling it out for top spot in the Pro OC Division of the Road to Pro series. Once again we see ikki from Japan leading in Divisions I and II, an exceptional performance especially as he is also in the running to finish well in Division III. Toolius also gives an overview of the Team Cup 2017 contest and the recent ASUS OC Showdown Team Edition 2 contest that just got underway.

The topic then turns to the GALAX GOC 2017 Qualifier contest which has encountered some issues with the required hardware not getting into overclockers hands until late. Right now we have 13 overclockers competing for a spot in the GOC 2017 Finals which will take place in Thailand, this November. Contest leader ikki (that man again) has been pushed out of top spot by bob(nz) (Australia), Rauf (Sweden) and rsaninno (Italy). With only six days left, there is still plenty of time for sandbaggers and late arrives to make their mark.

The guys also discuss the Intel Overclocking Unlocked contest which took place in Bangkok Thailand over the weekend. Although not part of the official World Tour, it’s another example of ambient, team and individual OC contest being organized by industry partners Intel, ASUS and others with the help of HWBOT who are there moderating the contest.Other topics that are touched on Episode 12, is the decision from AMD to give Raja Koduri a sabbatical. There’s also plenty of talk regarding Intel’s Core i9 7890XE processor which launches this week and some chat about the new EVGA ‘Untouchables’ EPOWER V power board, which was announced last week for a retail price of $249 USD.
