My System Specs


I received this in my email.

OC eSports

Did anyone else get this?

I read the rules and one I find interesting is the CPU requirement in the allowed hardware.

Must use commercially / retail available components. ES not allowed
Participants must use the Intel Pentium G3240 CPU
Participants must use G.SKILL memory.

It appears this is mainly going to be dependent on your motherboard, graphics card (for Firestrike) and your G.Skill memory. Not to mention that the processor is around $75.00 which is pretty inexpensive and kind of levels the playing fields instead of just letting everyone run whatever processor they have. The only thing I don't like is there are no limitations on cooling so you pretty much know the ones running LN2 are going to getting higher points than those that can't afford extreme cooling. Personally I think they should have different categories for different kinds of cooling.
Intel Core i7-4770K / Asus Maximus VI Gene / EVGA GTX 970 FTW SLI / Crucial Balistix 16GB / Intel 520 Series 120GB SSD / WD VelociRaptor 500GB / Corsair AX850 / NZXT S340
