These 3 events will be held throughout Computex week at the G.SKILL booth in the Nangang Exhibition Hall, 1F, Booth J0806.
7th Annual OC World Record Stage 2018
The OC World Record Stage is one of the biggest annual overclocking events in the extreme overclocking community, gathering 14 professional overclockers from around the globe to break as many benchmark records as possible. Featuring the latest Intel platforms, Samsung memory components, G.SKILL memory modules, and performance motherboards from major vendors such as MSI, ASUS, EVGA and ASRock, the extreme limits of hardware performance will be put to the test under a generous dose of liquid nitrogen cooling.
5th Annual OC World Cup 2018 – $20,000 USD Prize Pool
This year, G.SKILL is increasing the OC World Cup 2018 competition prize pool to a massive $20,000 USD, where $10,000 USD would be awarded to the overclocking champion of the competition. The OC World Cup 2018 competition will feature the latest high-end hardware from Intel, Samsung, and G.SKILL. After an intense online qualifier round that ended in April, six overclockers from around the world will be competing live on the G.SKILL stage to demonstrate their overclocking skills during Computex week. The contenders, in no particular order, are rsannino from Italy, Lau Kin Lam from Hong Kong, Dancop from Germany, Alex@ro from Romania, Lucky_n00b from Indonesia, and rtsurfer from USA.
G.SKILL Extreme Mod Stage 2018
A new addition to the G.SKILL booth is the Extreme Mod Stage, where six custom PC system mods will be on display, showcasing the incredible creativity and works of art from professional modders. System mods breaks away from the traditional bland computer-in-a-metal-case and shows off the carefully chosen hardware in a unique themed build, so a high performance system can also look amazing while it’s crunching away at a workload or running a game.
With so much to see, come join us at the G.SKILL booth at Computex 2018!
