As we draw closer to the end of 2016, we look with optimism and hope toward the new year and the prospect of the HWBOT World Tour 2017. The great news we bring you today is word that tickets are now on sale for the West European leg of the tour which will take at Gamers Assembly in Poitiers, France in mid April. Tickets can now be swept up directly from the Gamers Assembly website with options for both Ambient and Extreme overclockers.
As with all HWBOT World Tour events, the idea is promote overclocking and give it exposure to PC gamers and enthusiasts. The Gamers Assembly event is the ideal opportunity to do that with the event attracting thousands of gamers each year. This year HWBOT will be bringing OC Workshops to Poitiers, giving attendees the chance to learn the basics of CPU overclocking with sessions from seasoned professionals. The center piece of the event however will doubtlessly be Overclocking World Championship Qualifier, an extreme overclocking contest that spans two days. The top prize of course, is a ticket to the World Championship Final at the end of the year.
