G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world's leading brand of performance overclock memory and PC components, is pleased to announce that CENS from Germany won the title of OC Champion in the 8th Annual OC World Cup 2024 overclocking competition. After a grueling day of extreme overclocking with liquid nitrogen cooling, using the latest Intel Core i9-14900KF processor and ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore motherboard, CENS is walking away with the grand cash prize of $10,000 USD!

After the first 3 days of exhausting extreme overclocking in the Live Qualifier Stage of the OC World Cup 2024, biso biso, CENS, and Seby qualified for the Grand Final Stage on June 7. The Grand Final round is comprised of a maximum memory frequency challenge and 3 benchmarks with CPU speed fixed at a maximum of 7 GHz, demonstrating the incredible capability of the latest 14th Gen Intel Core processors and the extraordinary overclock skills of each OC World Cup 2024 Grand Final contestant.



Benchmarking with Extreme Low Latency DDR5 Memory
Across the various benchmarks in the Grand Final stage, the contestants used high-speed DDR5 memory at extremely low-latency to attain benchmark scores, reaching as far as DDR5-9000+ CL28. Such a combination of high-speed, low-latency memory specifications demonstrates the fantastic overclocking potential of G.SKILL DDR5 memory modules and the skills of the OC World Cup finalists.

Once again, we congratulate CENS for winning the title of OC Champion and the $10K USD grand cash prize. Showing amazing overclocking and time management skills under pressure on a live stage in front of a worldwide audience, CENS completed multiple high benchmark scores within the competition time limit. G.SKILL would also like to give special thanks to Intel, motherboard partners, G.SKILL master judges, HWBOT, and all the OC World Cup contestants for supporting and participating in this annual extreme overclocking competition.

Bold to claim 10K a "grand" cash price.

Make it 50k. Hire a decent videographer and presenter, make a bunch of interviews and put some more live and exitement into OC.
Push the show, Push the scene!

For a few hours of work 10k is quite easy money. But today sponsored OC's are not really worth it anymore. OC'ing is near as dead.

With CENS, NIK and Snakeeyes, this year the final had three of my fellow members from the German Hardwareluxx commonity. :cool:

It is not just a few hours of work, unfortunately.
I know three of the finalist and the qualification is a one month of work with them spending daily many hours trying to stay on the top to reach the final.
It‘s also an expensive hobby. o_O I know these three guys spent lot of time and money just finding the one processor with best SP scores, the one best mainboard that hits highest RAM OC and one set of RAM that can OC to max frequency to helps them go to the final.

That‘s why I didn‘t take part in qualification as I don‘t have the time and the money to try 300 CPU and find the one that has the highest score. :laugh:

In order to compete at this level you need years of experience. Been in the Scene since end of 21 and only made it to my countrys top 15 even tho I bench almost daily.
All of em spend thousands to even get there.
