    Celebrating its 5th anniversary, MSI’s Master Overclocking Arena (MOA) joins the most stable Military Class III components with record-breaking overclocking performance. Themed "Steel World", MSI has forged the first evolution starting with the American Regional Qualifiers on the world-class overclocking community website HWBOT.org on April 13, 2012.

    The American Regional Qualifiers this year consist of three stages: 3DMark11, 3DMark03 and SuperPI 32M. Each with a different point scheme. There will be no model limitation on MSI mainboards and graphics cards, however entries are limited to single CPU and GPU setups. A cut-off elimination will be applied on May 4th (75% of the contest period) after which the qualifiers will continue with only the best 15 overall participants.

    At the end of competition on May 10th, the top three winners are qualified as MOA representative of the Americas. They are free to choose another friend to team up with and have the chance to continue their journey to the MSI Master Overclocking Arena Grand Final.

    No, it means you can use any MSI mainboard or videocard. There's no restriction on the model.

    Imagine if the winner of the event used a standard Dell OEM motherboard...

    The funny part is that, although it is unlikely it is within the realm of possibility :)
