G.SKILL has announced its 2nd annual "OC World Cup 2015" overclocking competition, where there is a huge $16,200 up for grabs, which includes $10,000 in cash for the champion.




G.SKILL explains: "The OC World Cup 2015 is split into three rounds: Online Qualifier, Live Qualifier, and Grand Final. Live Qualifier and Grand Final will be held live at the G.SKILL booth during Computex 2015". The online qualifiers, which are the first stage of the competition, will take place on HWBOT between March 9 and April 13. There will be three benchmarks in this first round: SuperPI 32M, MaxxMem Read Bandwidth, and 3DMark Fire Strike Physics on specific hardware.


The top six from the first round of the competition will have the opportunity to enter the OC World Cup 2015 Live Qualifiers at Computex 2015, where they'll have the chance to win one of five prizes. The first of which is $10,000 in USD, but the rest of the prizes are not bad at all. Second place takes home $2500 USD and a 16GB kit of G.SKILL's 3300MHz DDR4 RAM, while third place takes home $1500 and a 16GB kit of G.SKILL's 3200MHz DDR4 RAM.
