A few weeks ago MSI attended the rAge 2016 Expo exhibition in Johannesburg, South Africa where they had a booth dedicated to spreading the word of DIY PC building and overclocking to attendees at the show. Billed as the ‘MSI PC Building 101 Workshop’, MSI’s Pepinorang, known to most of us as Pepe, and South Africa’s No.1 overclocker DrWeez ran a booth throughout the event with the notion of OC propaganda firmly in their minds.
Running from October 7th to 9th, the PC Building 101 Workshop was sponsored by MSI and completely free to all visitors. They gave attendees a chance to show their newly acquired tweaking skills by running a benchmark to see how high they could score. The highest scoring winner was then awarded the fantastic prize of taking away the actual rig that he built and overclocked.
The workshop proved to be a big hit with attendees at the show with more 70 visitors attending the workshop each day. The day kicked off with a presentation from DrWeez who explained the basics of PC building. He would then go on to show attendees the basics of PC construction, from prepping and installing the motherboard in the chassis, adding drives, installing the PSU and finally entering BIOS to setup and prepare the build for OS installation. Once the PC was built, Pepe was on hand to show them, how to tweak and push the machine to the max.
Here’s a video from DrWeez where he explains how things went at rAge 2016 in a little more detail:
