Hosted in partnership with Jagat Review, the Yogyakarta 2017 event will feature the AOCT (Amateur Overclocking Tournament) 2017 and the Overclocking World Championship 2017.

“We are really looking forward to returning to Yogyakarta, Indonesia for this year’s AOCT and OCWC contests,” commented Pieter-Jan Plaisier, Director at HWBOT. “The occasion will be even more special for us as Jagat Review in many ways pioneered the idea of actively recruiting PC enthusiasts to spread the word of Overclocking – fundamental concepts of the HWBOT World Tour today.”
Amateur Overclocking Tournament 2017: Creating OC Legends
Overclocking has a long and glorious history in Indonesia, a country that today is home to some of the world’s leading overclocking talent. The Amateur Overclocking Tournament (known to many as the AOCT) is an historically ground-breaking overclocking contest that has over the years has played a major role in promoting the sport overclocking. The tournament is held each year by local PC enthusiast and overclocking hub, Jagat Review. The original motivation for the AOCT was to recruit young people and bring new blood to the local overclocking scene. Jagat Review ensures the contest is appealing to amateurs, employing a ‘ban’ list to prevent more experienced overclockers from competing.
The AOCT is split into three sections. An ‘Audition’ event is followed by a ‘Briefing’ for newcomers who want to compete. This is followed on day two with a ‘Motherboard Competition’ where overclockers must demonstrate their OC skills using motherboards from different vendors. The climax of the event happens on day three when 1v1 Finals decide the winners and runners up. The entire event takes place during Yogyakomtek, one of Indonesia’s biggest technology trade shows, ensuring an extremely loud and lively atmosphere.
The AOCT will span three days using the following schedule:
- September 2nd: Round Auditions & Briefings
- September 3rd: Motherboard Competition
- September 4th: Grand Finals
Note: the schedule above is not final and may be subject to change

All contestants will compete using motherboards from each motherboard partner.

The Qualification Round will invite competing overclockers to bench as highly as possible on three specific benchmarks. After three hours, the highest four scorers will be invited back to compete in Semi-Final and Final 1vs1 Rounds on Day 2 of the contest.
All Semi-Finals and Finals will involve 1v1 matches. Each match lasts 30 minutes and starts with a benchmark draw where a benchmark is drawn at random from a pool of eight different benchmark challenges. Each overclocker has one veto that can be used to avoid an unfavorable outcome. Processors will be drawn at random with DDR4 and SSDs (OS) provided by HWBOT. The overclocker with highest score after 30 minutes is proclaimed the winner of each match.
