HWBOT Country Cup 2014

Also check out the competition at OC-Esports.io!

The Country Cup is back! Similar to last year, during the last months of 2014 we are hosting the World Cup of overclocking. From November 1 until December 20 we look for a successor to last year’s champions from Australia.

This year’s Country Cup is split up in five stages. Each stage comes with its own hardware, benchmark and user limitations. Find all details in the Rules section. One of the stages features a new and interesting 24h challenge for which you need a country-men who’s solid under pressure. We also teamed up with G.SKILL, GIGABYTE, Enermax, KINGPINcooling and Gelid Solutions for some awesome prizes. Good luck everyone!


The set-up of the Country Cup 2014 is similar to the previous editions. You can only contribute once per stage. For a stage that requires 5 scores to form an average, 5 different overclockers have to contribute. Every country receives a minimum of 1 point per stage it is active in, even if the minimum required overclockers for the average is not met.

Stage 1 to 4 start on November 1 2PM UTC and end on their respective day at 2PM. Stage 5 starts on December 19 4PM UTC and ends 24 hours later on December 20 4PM UTC.
