Just a few days ago we came to the conclusion of the HWBOT World Tour Montreal 2017. Taking place at DreamHack 2017, the event brought the world of overclocking both ambient and extreme to gamers and enthusiasts at the event. A cornerstone of each and every HWBOT World Tour event is to give attendees a chance to try it for themselves. This difference this time around is that things got a little more… extreme shall we say.
Just a few days ago the HWBOT World Tour was in town at Montreal for DreamHack 2017. The mission as ever was to spread the word of Overclocking to gamers and enthusiasts at the show, the highlight of which was the HWBOT World Tour Montreal 2017 Ambient contest. Today we bring you news that the contest was eventually won by Rookie overclocker Sidney6442. Congrats to you sir. Let’s have a quick look at the action in a little detail.
Yesterday we brought you a full roundup from Day One of the Overclocking World Championship Yogyakarta 2017 Qualifier contest. Four of Indonesia’s top extreme overclockers rose to the occasion and made to the Final Phase. Here’s a roundup of all the action from Day Two which involved four 1v1 matches – two Semi-Finals, a Bronze Final and of course, the Grand Final.
Over the weekend we saw the kick off of the Yogyakarta 2017 leg of this year’s HWBOT World Tour. The event is organized in conjunction with the Jagat Review crew who were also holding their annual Amateur Overclocking Tournament or AOCT (see our coverage of that contest here). In terms of Extreme Overclocking however, the main action is all about the Overclocking World Championship, or OCWC. The first day of the OCWC Yogyakarta 2017 Qualifier contest took place yesterday afternoon with a Qualifying Phase that saw several of Indonesia’s most feared subzero overclockers going head to for a place in the Finals.
Just yesterday the Yogyakarta 2017 leg of the HWBOT World Tour moved on from the AOCT contest and amateur ambient overclocking, kicking of the next competitive overclocking contest of the week, -the one and only Overclocking World Championship Yogyakarta 2017 Qualifier contest. Hosted at Yogyakomtek, one of South East Asia’s biggest tech tech exhibitions, HWBOT and Jagat Review set out to find out which Indonesian overclocker will appear in the OCWC Finals at the end of the year. The LN2 is prepped. The hardware is ready… let’s go and meet the seven contenders that will go head to head in Day 1.
Each year the team at Jagat Review (also Jagat OC) hold the Amateur Overclocking Tournament (AOCT), a contest that sets out to determine the best amateur overclocker in Indonesia. The contest has a long history and is actually one of the earliest examples of a technology website and community actively recruiting overclockers to help grow and nurture the hobby.
