Last weekend the HWBOT World Tour returned to the streets of Taiwan for the Taipei II 2017 event. At the heart of the event we had some overclocking workshops run by respected Taiwan overclocker Coolaler. The whole thing took place in a tent just outside the iconic and famous GuangHua Computer Market in downtown Taipei. During pretty much the entiree weekend, local visitors to the market and the SynTrend shopping center were given the chance to learn the basics of overclocking and try it for themselves. The highlight however was surely the Taipei II Ambient contest were the weekend’s best two performers were pitted against each other in a 1v1 contest. Here’s a roundup of what happened.
The HWBOT World Tour marches on today bringing overclocking to the masses of Taiwan. The Taipei II 2017 event is the second visit to Taipei this year following up the event we held there during Computex 2017 in June earlier this year. Right now we can share some photos of what must surely be a first, serious overclocking on the streets of Taipei.

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.
