HWBOT World Tour 2017 Visits Russia for IgroMir Expo

HWBOT Joins Partners ASUS and Intel to Host Overclocking Workshops and Contests at Russia’s Largest Gaming Exhibition

September 26th, 2017, Taipei, Taiwan – HWBOT, an organization regulating international Overclocking competitions and rankings, today officially announces its attendance at IgroMir Expo 2017, one of the biggest technology exhibitions in Eastern Europe. The event will feature free Overclocking Workshops for all event attendees and competitive Ambient and Extreme Overclocking contests. HWBOT will be joined by primary partners Intel and ASUS, HWBOT World Tour Partners Seasonic, and hardware partners Alphacool and HyperX.

“We are honored to bring the HWBOT World Tour to Eastern Europe for the first time, hosting overclocking workshops and contests at IgroMir Expo, Moscow,” commented Pieter-Jan Plaisier, Director at HWBOT. “While Russia has historically produced some the world’s most respected extreme overclockers, we hope this visit can further nurture and expand its vibrant overclocking community.”

Ambient Overclocking Workshops for All IgroMir Expo 2017 Visitors: September 28 – 30

Some of Russia’s most celebrated and experienced overclockers will be in attendance to host free Overclocking Workshops for all IgroMir Expo attendees. By signing up for a Workshop Session you will be taught how to tune the CPU to make the system run faster, how to adjust the voltage settings to get more out of the CPU and how to tweak other settings to help raise your score.

As well as expert tuition, workshop attendees will be given the chance to submit their own best score to the OC-ESPORTS platform. Each day Prizes will be made available for the highest scorers. The highest scorer overall will be crowned the Moscow 2017 Amateur Contest winner, and awarded an additional prize.

Overclocking World Championship – Moscow 2017 Qualifier: ASUS Booth – September 28 – October 1st

At each stop of the HWBOT World Tour 2017 an Overclocking World Championship Qualifier contest is held. These are extreme overclocking contests where the region’s top overclocking talent are invited to compete head to head for the ultimate prize – a ticket to the OCWC Final at the end of the year.

The OCWC Moscow Qualifier contest will be co-hosted at the ASUS Russia Booth at IgroMir Expo. Attending overclockers will compete using a similar contest format to those used in previous OCWC 2017 contests. The first three days of the contest will involve contestants benching as hard as possible on three benchmarks (to be confirmed). At the end of Day 3, the four highest scorers will be invited back to compete on Day 4.

On Day 4 the top four overclockers compete in a unique contest format that pits contestants against each other in a 1v1 format. Benchmarks will be randomly drawn from a pool of six options. Each overclocker will possess one veto which can be used strategically to avoid an unfavorable benchmark. CPUs will be drawn at random.

To compete in the OCWC Moscow 2017 Qualifier contest you must first purchase an LN2 Ticket. LN2 Tickets include entry to IgroMir Expo, a chance to compete in the OCWC Moscow Qualifier contest, plus access to unlimited LN2 at the ASUS Booth throughout the contest.
