Default ASUS ROG OC Showdown at Dreamhack Winter 2009

ASUS will hold the world’s first overclocking competition where skill is the only factor on the 27 and 28 of November: The ASUS ROG OC Showdown. The competition takes place live at the ASUS booth in Sweden, during Dreamhack Winter 2009. The true unique characteristic of this competition is that the structure of the competition removes the element of variables such as a difference in quality of the CPU and GPU. The aim is to create an overclocking competition format that is truly viable as a sport, rather than a product exhibition.

The competitors for the title of ROG Champion are:

* Elmor
* Giorgioprimo
* Hipro5
* Massman
* Sampsa
* SF3D
* Stummerwinter

The Setups

The systems used in the competition feature the most suited hardware and software for overclocking from ASUS, Intel, Microsoft and OCZ:

* ASUS EAH5870 (x2 in Crossfire-X)
* ASUS ROG Notebook for ROG Connect
* ASUS ROG Maximus III Formula
* Intel Core i7 870
* Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
* OCZ DD3 w/ Elpida Hyper, OCZ Vertex Turbo 120GB
* OCZ Z Series 1000W Gold Certified Modular
