October 19, 2017, Taipei, Taiwan – HWBOT, an organization regulating international Overclocking competitions and rankings, today officially announces its first visit to Australia, attending PAX AU in Melbourne on October 27th – 29th.

“We break into new territory once again when we take the HWBOT World Tour to Australia for the first time,” commented Pieter-Jan Plaisier, Director at HWBOT. “PAX AU is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness of Overclocking with Australian gamers and enthusiasts while also engaging some of the world’s most respected overclocking talent.”

Free Ambient Overclocking Workshops for PAX AU Attendees

A central element of the HWBOT World Tour is the idea of spreading the word of overclocking to each and every corner of the globe. To that end all PAX AU attendees are invited to join us for free Overclocking Workshops. Systems with the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processors will be set up at PAX AU with seasoned overclockers on hand to give you expert tuition.

Once you have learned the basics of how to tune the PC to improve performance, it’s time to get hands and try it for yourself. After making a few scores using the Intel XTU benchmark, you can then submit it to the OC-ESPORTS competitive platform. If you are among the highest four scorers, you will invited back to compete in 1v1 Semi-Final and Final matches. The eventual winner will win some fantastic prizes and be crowned Melbourne 2017 Ambient Winner.

All Melbourne 2017 Overclocking Workshops are free for all PAX AU 2017 attendees. Simply sign up for a workshop session at the event.
