G.SKILL OC World Cup 2015 Winner Announcement



Taipei, Taiwan (15 June 2015) – G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory, solid state storage, and gaming peripherals, is thrilled to announce the winners of OC World Cup 2015.



G.SKILL OC World Cup is one of the most exciting annual overclocking contests with a live qualifier round and grand final battle taking place during Computex week. This year is the second annual OC World Cup event, and all the rules and benchmarks were set up to test the skills of the best memory overclockers by setting an upper limit to CPU frequency. This design resulted in a very tense and dramatic competition, as all the setups and scores affect one another.


For the first time in overclocking history, the OC World Cup grand finals included a 16GB module overclocking round, where the contestants were given the chance to overclock the massive 16GB module with no prior preparation time before Computex. Despite the extreme difficulty of this task, the final contestants demonstrated true overclocking skills to adapt and tune a piece of hardware under a time limit and intense stress of overclocking in front of a live audience.



During the OC World Cup 2015 Grand Finals, Vivi from South Africa achieved the higher DDR4 16GB module frequency at 3836MHz and maintained a strong lead for the majority of the Grand Finals, but Lau Kin Lam from Hong Kong managed to break through to first place in the final quarter of the final stage. Congratulations to Lau Kin Lam for winning the OC World Cup championship and walking away with the $10,000 USD grand prize. The following chart shows all the final rankings of the event.



“Big thanks to Intel, Samsung, and Kingpin Cooling for their great support to the event. With their help, the OC World Cup event was a major success,” says Frank Hung, Product Marketing at G.SKILL. “We will continue to work closely with the overclocking community to update competition rules for future generation hardware, and we can expect an even more exciting competition for next year’s OC World Cup 2016.”
