Now some more details about the finals. This year, MSI will bring to Taiwan an impressive line-up of overclockers selected through various ways. Some of them have been qualified during the EU Qualifier event in Paris, some others by getting ranked on the Lord of Overclocking online contest, and some lucky others have been simply selected by MSI itself.

The line up :
