Alza OC Cup 2017: Contest Update - Rauf (Sweden) Leads, Wins Mid-Contest Prizes

Today marks the halfway point of the Alza OC Cup 2017 contest here on OC-ESPORTS which gives us a fantastic reason to take a look at the current standings and the stand out scores that have been submitted so far. Swedish legend Rauf, as a Mid-Contest Leader will be very happy to learn that he currently tops the contest leaderboard, and that he has also won some great prizes from partners Intel and G.SKILL. More on that later. Right now, let?s take a more detailed look at all the action so far.

The Alza OC Cup - Sponsored by Alza, the Extreme Overclockers Retailer

First a little information about the company behind the contest. The Alza OC Cup 2017 is sponsored by Alzo, one Europe?s biggest electronic goods e-retailers. The contest underlines the company?s commitment to engaging with European overclockers, a customer segment they really do care about.

Alza is currently the only e-retailer that stocks Kingpincooling products for example, and is quickly growing its Extreme OC product lines to include pretty much everything an Extreme Overclocker might need; LN2 pots, thermocouples, thermal pastes, measurement devices, contact cleaners, torches, MAP cartridges plus kitchen towels and insulation materials. They can even help sort out LN2 delivery in certain areas. The company is quickly expanding to become a one-stop-shop for things XOC. They are also one of the only retailers that currently accept payments in Bitcoin.

Visit the Alza Shop here.

That's the boring part of the competitions, you don't even know who is competing. I liked the wild card comp last year, where you had to announce that you would participate before competition.

It's our first competition and for sure not last one. We'll see hpw it goes and maybe we will design better next time. Alot of guys were rambling because of no limits, but I was thinking, it was enough of it. This is what OC should be about Gz, Rauf

The contest works well, but a lot of guys paniced and sold their best 7700ks a while ago - much too cheap, much too early, and now they cry about not being able to compete against top batches xd - the price of jumping on 7740k train

Contest is fine, and I love the effort of organizing one with good prizes. Low clock or no limit doesn't really matter too much in my opinion. If it's low clock it just favours the mem binning instead. And I think most with really good mem don't really bin mem themselves anyway. In the end the same people wins, but no limits is more fun!
