An Introduction to OC KnockOut (OCKO)
OC Knockout is a challenge for everyone – from novice to extreme overclockers. Win Battle Points (BP) and rank up the ROG OCKO global leaderboard!
Designed as a fun challenge that promotes tweaking all factors of the system; from memory, CPU, motherboard to OS setup, OC KnockOut is a great overclocking challenge. It’s based on the Gauss–Legendre algorithm in the SuperPi software overclockers are already familiar with.
This is more than just another step forward in competitive benchmarking, it is an evolving form of online sport. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we enjoy continually developing it. For more detailed information, please see our introductory article.

In a manner similar to SuperPi, the game is split into many modes a user can choose from. The 32k Mode is a short sprint of 20 rounds. At the end of each round, the slowest player would be forced to level up (a bump upwards in CPU Ratio). If any player crashes from instability or drops out halfway during game play, they automatically lose the accumulated Battle Points to the final winner. The winner of the most rounds or the last man standing would take the other players’ battle points as his own.
The other modes follow the same pattern with ever reducing rounds to offset the longer compute time:
|64k Mode||15 rounds|
|128k Mode||13 rounds|
|256k Mode||10 rounds|
|512k Mode||5 rounds|
|1M Mode||3 rounds|
|2M Mode||1 round|
|4M Mode||1 round|
|8M Mode||1 round|
