Montreal 2017 Brings Overclocking Workshops and Competitive OC Contests to Gamers and PC Enthusiasts at DreamHack

August 22, 2017, Taipei, Taiwan – HWBOT, an organization regulating international Overclocking competitions and rankings, today officially announces its attendance at DreamHack Montreal 2017, one of the largest digital festivals in North America. HWBOT will host Overclocking Workshops for gamers and enthusiasts at the show as well as an Overclockers Gathering plus some seriously competitive Extreme Overclocking with the OCWC Montreal 2017 Qualifier contest.

“The HWBOT World Tour team is very excited to attend DreamHack Montreal, the second North American date so far in 2017,” commented Pieter-Jan Plaisier, Director at HWBOT. “The enormous scope and popularity of DreamHack gives us an unmissable opportunity to interface with thousands of influential gamers and PC enthusiasts, spreading the word of Overclocking further than ever.”

Free Overclocking Workshops for All DreamHack Attendees

The HWBOT World Tour team will be joined by several experienced North American and Canadian overclockers to host a series of free overclocking workshop sessions. All DreamHack attendees are invited to sign up for a workshop session and learn the basics of what overclocking is all about. This will include how to tune the CPU to improve performance, plus more advanced skills that allow you to progressively raise your score.

Montreal 2017 – Ambient Contest

As well as expert tuition, workshop attendees will be given the chance to submit their best score to the OC-ESPORTS platform and have a taste of genuine competitive overclocking. Score as highly as possible and you could be one of four overclockers invited to compete in the Montreal 2017 Ambient Finals on the last day. Contest winners will walk away with some fantastic prizes.

Overclocking World Championship – Montreal 2017 Qualifier
