GALAX GOC 2017 Final: 12 Contestants to Compete for Biggest Prize Pool Ever!

Today we can bring you news that confirms the twelve overclockers that will be contesting the GALAX GOC 2017 Final in Bangkok, Thailand in a few weeks time. We can also confirm the prize money that GALAX are offering, and the guess what? It?s an even bigger prize pool than last year and the most generous that GALAX have ever offered.

GALAX GOC 2017 Finals: The Twelve Contestants

The GALAX GOC 2017 Worldwide Online Qualifier contest came a close just a week or so ago with 26 overclockers competing for the right to be flown in to Thailand for the Finals. Unlike the majority of contests on OC-ESPORTS, the GOC 2017 Qualifier involved investing in specific high-end GALAX hardware, most notably a GALAX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti HOF OC Lab Edition graphics card. After a month of very competitive, extreme overclocking the following twelve overclockers have now been invited to the Finals.

  • -OGS (Greece)
  • -DrWeez (S.Africa)
  • -bob(nz) (Australia)
  • -ikki (Japan)
  • -Phil (Greece)
  • -dogna (Japan)
  • -Alex@ro (Romania)
  • -rsannino (Italy)
  • -Bullshooter (Germany)
  • -Micka (China)
  • -ZeR0_Dan (China)
  • -bboyjezz (Indonesia)

GALAX GOC 2017 Finals: The Twelve Contestants

Although details about the contest format, benchmarks, hardware and rules have yet to confirmed, GALAX has told us about the cash prizes that they have prepared for the winners of this year?s contest. I think you?ll all be impressed:

  • 1st Place: $5,000 USD
  • 2nd Place: $4,000 USD
  • 3rd Place: $3,000 USD

Plus we can confirm that all contestants will fly home with GALAX Hardware in their luggage.

Don?t forget that you can read a full roundup article covering the Worldwide Qualifier contest here, as well as an article that details the eight lucky prize draw winners here.
