How will the qualifying work

  • The qualifying will start on April 16 and end on May 15 at 00:00 (GMT+5.5)
  • The qualifying will be online only. Competitors will run a series of benchmarks and depending on their score will be awarded points for having a top 5 result.

Prizes are as follows:

  • 1st Place: Trip for one overclocker to compete in GOOC Regional final in Indonesia on 19th June. (4 Day 3 night events, all expenses paid) – (one person)
  • 2nd Place: X58A-UD7 Motherboard
  • 3rd Place: P55A-UD7 Motherboard

Since GIGABYTE has realized that many overclockers will not be able to do “extreme cooling” (LN2 / Dry-Ice / Liquid Cooling) and stand a chance to win the TOP prize. GIGABYTE has decided to give away GIGABYTE GA-P55-USB3 Motherboard to the best overclocker with highest combined score using only “air cooling”.

Prize for Best Air Overclocker is as below:

  • 1st Prize: P55-USB3 Motherboard.
