The highly anticipated GOC 2015 overclocking event is nearly upon us, with the official date of 11-12th of December 2015, held in Wuhan China. Winners of the first stage 3DMARK Fire Strike and 3DMARK 11 benchmark scores have been invited to take the main stage and go head-to-head for the top world-record-breaking scores live at GOC 2015.
Competing overclockers with the GTX 980 Ti HOF GOC + a selection of several parts.
