Right now we are just a week or so away from the Taipei II 2017 event which will take place outside the iconic Taipei Computer Market here in Taiwan. Today we can confirm the rules and contest for the Overclocking World Championship Qualifier contest that will take center stage at the event. The OCWC Taipei II 2017 Qualifier is of course an Extreme Overclocking contest where the eventual winner will be awarded with a seat in the Finals which take place in Berlin in December. It promises to be another example of sub-zero, competitive, live overclocking.
Today we can bring you a major update regarding the latter stages of this year’s HWBOT World Tour. The plan for this year originally involved a visit to China for the CG Play event, a PAX powered event originally scheduled to happen in Guangzhou in November. This event was cancelled however due to an upcoming major national event in China and rescheduled for next year. Having a gap in our 2017 schedule gave us the opportunity to host a second event in our home town of Taipei, Taiwan. Today we can officially announce the Taipei II event and the availability of tickets.
Today we can officially bring you an update regarding tickets to the forthcoming HWBOT World Tour trip to Melbourne, Australia in a just a few weeks time. The Melbourne 2017 event will take place at PAX AU on October 27th to 29th and as ever will feature a Overclocking World Championship Qualifier contest where a seat at the Finals in December is up for grabs. To compete in the contest you first need to purchase an LN2 ticket. The ticket also allows you to enjoy a social Overclocker Gathering event with access to unlimited liquid nitrogen.
The eighth Overclocking World Championship (OCWC) Qualifier contest of the year came to a head just a few days ago. The contest was held as a key element in the HWBOT World Tour, Moscow 2017 event which took place at IgroMir Expo 2017, the biggest tech event in Russia. With eight of Europe’s most feared overclockers competing over a period of four days, Wizerty from France eventually rose to the top to claim his seat in the Finals at the end of the year. Let’s take a look at the scoring and action that took place.
Last week the HWBOT World Tour rolled in to town for the Moscow 2017 event, the eighth stop of this year’s tour. The event was hosted at IgroMir Expo, a technology expo show that is held annually in Moscow, Russia. It was in fact the first time that HWBOT World Tour had been to East Europe and offered a great chance to spread the word of Overclocking to Russia’s tech savvy enthusiast and gaming crowd. Today we can bring you some really great photos of the event thanks to our partner OverClocking-TV. Enjoy!
A few days ago the Performance Matters, Multicore Madness Moscow event took place. The event was sponsored by partners Intel who provided the latest 14-core, 16-core and 18-core series of the processors. Three world class overclockers got to work pushing these new Core i9 series CPUs, demonstrating to media and industry guests the awesome potential these new parts offer. OverClocking-TV were present at the event, bringing great coverage of the action. You can now enjoy it for yourself with this replay video which is hosted by Trouffman with guest appearances from Buildzoid and Houston.
