The fourth part of our Overclocker Profile series looks at the current highest ranked overclocker on OC-ESPORTS, the one and only rsannino from Italy. Join us as we take a peek at how he qualified for the OCWC 2017 Final and also a quick look at the man behind the LN2 flask.
The Man Behind the LN2 Flask: rsannino (Italy)
Known in his daily life away from extreme overclocking as Roberto Sannino, rsannino has had a really good year in terms of competitive overclocking, climbing the ranks of both HWBOT and the OC-ESPORTS competitive platform to become a real force in the game. In 2017, he is one of only two HWBOT members to have wrestled the HWBOT No.1 ranking away from Dancop, no mean feat. He currently sits in second place in the worldwide rankings with 2,860.9 points, just ahead of Xtreme Addictc (Poland) with 2,735.8 points and just behind Dancop with 3,206.5 points.
The Road to the OCWC 2017 Final
The Taipei 2017 leg of the HWBOT World Tour offered a ticket to the OCWC 2017 Finals via the G.SKILL OC World Cup 2017 contest. Roberto actually made it to the G.SKILL OC World Cup Finals by winning the online Qualifier contest. He then traveled to Taipei to compete in the Final.
At the end of a grueling week with five of the world’s most respected extreme overclockers competing live at the G.SKILL booth Computex 2017, Italian overclocker Roberto ‘rsaninno’ has taken first place and the $10,000 USD prize. The final day of the contest saw the Italian go head to head against last year’s winner Xtreme Addict from Poland, historically one of the most successful live competitive overclockers ever. With less than an hour we found rsaninno marginally ahead on the score card with higher scores in three out of four benchmarks. By the time the countdown clock had reached the end of the contest, we find rsannino sealing the win with victories in three out of four stage.
