The HWBOT World Tour is excited to visit Russia for the first time by attending IgroMir Expo 2017, the original computer and video games exhibition of Russia. With its origins going back as far as 2006, the IgroMir Expo is the biggest technology exhibition in Eastern Europe and one of the biggest in the world, which is why HWBOT has made it a key destination of the 2017 World Tour. Gamers and PC enthusiasts in attendance will get the chance to learn the basics of Overclocking at OC Workshops with expert tuition from locally based professionals. Attendees will also enjoy the chance to get close up with some of Russia’s best Overclockers as they compete in the Moscow – 2017 World Championship Qualifier contest.
We would like to thank the following event partners for joining this world tour stop:
Ambient Overclocking Workshops for All IgroMir Expo Visitors: September 28 – 30
For the first time ever Igromir Expo attendees will be given the opportunity to discover the world of Overclocking for themselves. From September 28-30, visitors will be able to sign up for free Overclocking Workshops. Each workshop session will last around 30 minutes and involve receiving expert tuition from locally-based professional overclockers. After learning the basics of how to push the frequency of an Intel CPU, attendees will be given the chance to get hands on with one of the many systems setup in the workshop area.
After pushing the CPU and tweak voltages and other settings, you can then run the XTU benchmark and submit your highest scores to the OC-ESPORTS platform. At the end of three days of Overclocking Workshops, the top four scorers will be invited back on October 1st to compete head to head in the Ambient World Tour -Moscow 2017 contest. Some great hardware prizes from our event sponsors will be made available for the contest winner!
