Just in case you missed our live coverage, the Gigabyte Open Overclocking Championship 2010 North American Final event took place this weekend on August 7th.
After 90 minutes of setup and over 5 hours of non-stop overclocking involving Pifast, Wprime 8m, Super PI 8M, and MAXXMEM, two overclockers emerged victorious from the twelve who were competing, which included our very own Jody “3oh6″ Bailey.
Jeremy “Sno.lcn” Clifton took home first place along with an impressive champion’s trophy, while Michael “Mikeguava” Graf came in close second. For their efforts, they both secured a trip to the GOOC 2010 Worldwide Final event in Taipei, Taiwan. They also both won custom-built systems by iBuypower and Cyberpower, respectively. For his third place finish, Ross “ROSS” Lapkoff won an assortment of hardware, as pictured below.
The Worldwide Final will be held on September 25th in Taipei, featuring some of the very best overclockers from all over the world. Hopefully, we will be there once again to bring you the best possible coverage.
