Computex – Taipei, Taiwan – May 26 – June 3


The HWBOT World Tour 2017 continues with a fourth stop at Computex 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan. This is also the fourth year in a row that the overclocking event lands in the center of the PC hardware industry, starting with the HWBOT Anniversary Gathering in 2014.

This year’s event will feature more activities than ever to celebrate overclocking! Building on the success of last year’s event, we are hoping to make this year’s event even bigger. Attendees will be able to gain hands-on experience with an extreme cooled system. They will also be able to bear witness to one of the most fiercely contested World Championship Qualification contests as six Overclockers from around the world compete in the G.SKILL OC World Cup for a place in the Overclocking World Championship Final. This one will be unmissable!
