The Road to Pro Challenger Series: Season 2017 Starts February 1st

We are are edging towards the start of a brand new Road To Pro season

It seems like only a few weeks ago that the 2016 Season of the Challenger Divisions and The Pro OC Division came to a close, yet here we are edging towards the start of a brand new season. The Road to Pro Challenger series on OC-ESPORTS, for anyone who is in the dark, is the most comprehensive Overclocking contest ever. It spans a total of eight Divisions and includes challenges on a broad range of hardware including Intel, AMD, classic hardware and mobile processors.

The idea is very simple. The Challenger Series offers something for everyone. A place where we can all find our niche in terms of a prefered platform and available resources. Once you know what your focus is, you can then compete head to head against the best there is. Every season the Challenger Series consists of three rounds, each lasting two months. Challenger Series Round 1 kicks off on February 2017 running until the end of March.

It doesn?t matter if you are a seasoned veteran of many campaigns or a total newcomer looking to draw first blood and get a taste of the action. As the curtain rises on Season 2017, all overclockers start with zero points. By the end of the season we will have our Division champions. At the pinnacle of the game we also have the Pro OC Division, a division where the very best, Elite overclockers in the world go head to head.

Road to Pro 2017: Overview

Each Division includes five unique stages and focuses on a different hardware platform. Here is a general guide to the hardware platforms that will be used in each Challenger Division for Season 2017:
