Established by ASUS in 2003 and supported by Intel, ASUS Open Cup has earned international popularity among cyberathletes from CIS and Europe. The finals of the 2012 ASUS Open Cup series took place in Kiev, Ukraine, on December 13 to 16, 2012, at the Kiev CyberSport Arena, the largest gamers’ playground in the CIS countries. During the four days of competition the best cyberathletes from Russia, Ukraine, other CIS countries and Europe were challenging each other in five disciplines for the Cup and the prize fund of $69,000.

For the first time in the history of ASUS Open Cup 2012, a full-scale overclocking tournament took place beside gaming competitions. Top overclockers from Russia and Ukraine and special guests from Europe showed what their skill and the top-end ASUS Republic of Gamers hardware could do. ASUS Open Overclocking Cup 2012 was carried out in a friendly atmosphere filled with liquid nitrogen vapors. The overclockers competed in the following disciplines: SuperPi 32M (fixed CPU clock rate) and PiFast, 3DMark11 (without limitations).

The winners were Perica_Barii (Montenegro) and Xtreme Addict (Poland) who, besides outstanding results, were spotted to use an extreme cooling system for memory modules, which is yet a rare solution among the overclocking community.

The second place went to matose (Romania) and Aristidis (Greece). The Russians GUN’G’STAR and DeDaL were third. The Ukrainian (MaJ0r и PlaSMaN) and one more Russian (S_A_V, NeoForce) teams also made it into the top five. All of them got impressive hardware prizes whereas the top three were additionally awarded with monetary prizes ($1500, $1000 and $500, respectively). The remaining participants received ASUS Maximus V Extreme mainboards and ASUS HD7970 MATRIX Platinum graphics cards.

Some of the results obtained during the overclockers tournament have already been published in the HWBOT.org database and made it into the top 20 in the respective categories. Considering that it’s hard to achieve record-breaking results during a competitive tournament, some of the overclockers have already expressed their willingness to carry on with their experiments and improve on their earlier results using ASUS ROG, Intel, Corsair and Cooler Master components. We can expect some changes in the world’s overclocking league in the nearest future.
