With the GSKILL OC World Cup Final to be held in Taipei from June 3rd to June 5th during Computex, we took the time to look back at the qualification process.

 

Online qualifiers were held at HWBOT from 24th March to 27th April 2014, featuring 3 benchmarks including the highest memory frequency, SuperPI 32M, and 3DMark Fire Strike.

Stage 1 : Memory Frequency

Stage 2 : FireStrike

This 3D benchmark was limited to one GPU only, so most of the overclockers went to choose the GeForce GTX 780Ti under extreme cold.

Interesting to point out that Splave is not even in the top 10 at this run, actually he ranked 11th.

Stage 3 : SuperPi 32M

Along with high clocked memory and good CPU Frequencies, we see that in the SuperPi32M stage the top 6 is actually the 6 overclcokers that will be invited later on.
