    Cool ROG OC Showdown - Get your Z97 boards ready!



    Might not be 100% correct at this stage - still finalizing - but just FYI to start preparing! Will launch on HWBot soon! For future, we aim to do stuff with the new HWBot Rookie/Am/Enth leagues, as we believe it covered more forum guys here and we want to get more people into OC!

    2D, 3D, Max CPU!
    The competition will focus on three areas for benchmarking:
    • Maximum CPU frequency,
    • SuperPi 32M
    • 3DMark Sky Diver

    Content Prizes
    Grand Prize (accumulation of points across all three benchmarks):
    • Future ROG X99 motherboard (at product launch)

    Prizes per benchmark:
    • 1st place: Choice of any ROG Maximus VII series motherboard or ROG Matrix R9 290X graphics card
    • 2nd place: Choice of Maximus VII Formula or Maximus VII Impact motherboard

    Any world record broken in the three benchmarks at the final event date, ASUS will additionally award USD $1,000.

    If there are cooling restrictions in place, it will be an awesome event. If not, the extreme LN2 overclockers are going to take home the prizes like always. lol

    The different HWBOT leagues will determine what kind of cooling you will be able to use.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

    So this event is aimed at users in those three leagues in particular, correct?

    There is no mention of that in the event actually. But I guess that implies that it's an anything goes right? A good old Royal rumble between Rookies to PRO OCers? But then again, there are three of each prizes which kind of fits in with what Richard said earlier about the three leagues?

    A little confused. Just want to make sure I understand all the bases before the event starts.

    One of the restrictions is that components must be commercially available before the contest kicks off. It already kicked off. The Maximus VII Formula is not commercially available. So even if it comes in during the contest, the M7F can't be used?

    What I was trying to say about cooling was this. If you are in a league that does not allow LN2 cooling and you decide to use LN2 cooling then you will change class in the HWBOT leagues. Sorry for any confusion.

    If you buy an M7F before the competition ends that's fair game. However we expect the Gene to OC as well as the Formula and that's readily available, as a lot of BIOS OC work has already gone into the Gene that has been on market a few months.

    This is for everyone up to extreme cooling users. If you use LN2 in a competition you will be bumped into the Extreme league automatically.

    Here is a screenshot of all the different leagues on HWBOT:

    So once you are more than 3 months old, one year, or if you do extreme overclocking you will pass automatically to the superior league. If you want to join the Elite league, is your choice.
    Check out this video, to know everything about overclockers leagues:
    How the overclocking leagues work on HWBOT?

    For this competition is no limitation for the cooling method. But for later, we would like to organize competitions for the different leagues, that will bring more fun to everybody.
