A few weeks ago we reached the conclusion of the ROG OC Showdown 2016 contest, an open overclocking contest hosted on OC-ESPORTS. As a way to promote the Open Benchtable Project and support the overclocking community we were given the opportunity to sponsor the contest, awarding each of the top three Formula Series winners a Community Edition Open Benchtable. We can now confirm that the top three at the end of the contest are Nik (Germany) Ziken (France) and IvanCupa (Indonesia). As a reward for all the effort used to finish in the top three of a contest that attracted several hundred ambient overclockers, an Open Benchtable is on its way to each of you.
The ROG OC Showdown 2016 Formula Series
The ROG OC Showdown 2016 Formula Series is a contest setup specifically for overclockers that use ambient cooling push their systems to the limit. The contest was open to overclockers from the Rookie, Novice and Enthusiast leagues. Processor temperatures were limited to 30°C or above (XTU load temp must be higher than 60°C). The only other hardware limitations involved dictated that overclockers must use an ASUS motherboard and that only currently available consumer hardware be used. The contest was organized in conjunction with ASUS, ROG, HWBOT and OC-ESPORTS. Split into two separate rounds running from mid-August to late November the contest proved to be enormously popular, attracting more than 400 overclockers from around the world.
Congrats to Nik, Ziken and IvanCupa. We hope that you find the Open Benchtable a valuable addition to your benching stations at home, or wherever your overclocking desires lead you.
