G.SKILL OC World Cup 2017 Live Qualifier: Rules Confirmed

Just a few days ago we came to the conclusion of the online qualification phase of the G.SKILL World Cup 2017. As with previous years, the contest drew the attention of some of the world?s most talented overclockers from around the world, which is not surprising when you consider the cash prizes that G.SKILL are offering ? the winner alone will walk away with a check for $10,000 USD. Now that the qualifier is behind us we can look forward to the live portion of the contest which will take place as usual at the G.SKILL booth during Computex 2017. Today we bring you news that the rules for live qualifier contest have now been confirmed.

In terms of hardware the Live Qualifier will involve benching Intel Kaby Lake processors using either Z170 or Z270 motherboards. The six competing overclockers are invited to use their own equipment including CPU and motherboards. G.SKILL will provide only memory, pre-formated and prepped SSDs and power supplies. In terms of memory G.SKILL will provide 4 sticks of 8GB DDR4 to each contestant.

When it comes to contest benchmarks, the following three benchmarks have been confirmed for the Live Qualifier segment; DDR4 Frequency, Geekbench3 Multi Core 6.5 GHz and 3DMark11 Physics 6.5 GHz. A fourth benchmark will be added, and as an extra twist, you can help decide what that benchmark will be. Simply select which benchmarks you think should be used in the poll embedded on the right of this web page. Options include Cinebench R11.5 6.5GHz, Cinebench R15 6.5GHz and XTU 6.5GHz ?go ahead and make your choice.

As you would expect with any contest of this magnitude, the rules are pretty comprehensive in an effort to avert any unfortunate outcomes or misunderstandings. You can check the full list of rules here on OC-ESPORTS. Don?t forget also that you can learn more about the online qualifier contest here with our full roundup of the contest.
