GALAX GOC 2017 Finals: The Twelve Contestants

The GALAX GOC 2017 Worldwide Online Qualifier contest came a close just a week or so ago with 26 overclockers competing for the right to be flown in to Thailand for the Finals. Unlike the majority of contests on OC-ESPORTS, the GOC 2017 Qualifier involved investing in specific high-end GALAX hardware, most notably a GALAX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti HOF OC Lab Edition graphics card. After a month of very competitive, extreme overclocking the following twelve overclockers have now been invited to the Finals.

  • -OGS (Greece)
  • -DrWeez (S.Africa)
  • -bob(nz) (Australia)
  • -ikki (Japan)
  • -Phil (Greece)
  • -dogna (Japan)
  • -Alex@ro (Romania)
  • -rsannino (Italy)
  • -Bullshooter (Germany)
  • -Micka (China)
  • -ZeR0_Dan (China)
  • -bboyjezz (Indonesia)
