The second leg of the HWBOT World Tour 2017 took place just a week or so ago, dropping by at the Campus Party event in Sao Paulo for a week of Overclocking Workshops and both Ambient and Extreme Overclocking contests. The highlight of the week however must surely have been the Overclocking World Championship Sao Paulo 2017 Qualifier contest, an Extreme Overclocking contest where Latin America’s Elite Overclockers went head to head to find out who would win a ticket to the OCWC Finals at the end of the year. The great news is that OC-ESPORTS has all the details.
At the Campus Party in Brazil thousands of Latin America’s PC, gaming and technology enthusiasts gathered in one place under one gigantic roof to learn and share knowledge and skills regarding the myriad facets of today’s computer technology. The HWBOT World Tour is of course all about introducing young, keen minds to the art of overclocking. Indeed the first few days of the Sao Paulo 2017 event were focused on giving as many visitors as possible a chance to learn about overclocking, try it for themselves while also having the opportunity to post scores on our Ambient Sao Paulo OC Tournament (more about that later in the article).
OCWC Qualifier – Sao Paulo, February 2017
The final day of the Sao Paulo 2017 event was set aside for the OCWC Qualifier contest. Extreme overclockers had been present at the Campus Party event throughout the week, taking advantage of the copious LN2 provided. But as well as enjoy an OC Gathering, there was the serious matter of deciding which Brazilian Overclocker would be invited to compete in Berlin for the OCWC Final at the end of the year. After a qualifying day on February 3rd to decide which overclocker would face each other in the Semi’s, the roster was established.
Semi Final 1 would be a contest between last year’s Latin American Champion PXHX and Renan0000, a newcomer to live Extreme overclocking and the HWBOT World Tour in general. The second Semi-Final would involve the highly respected and experienced joe90br and the country’s current No.1, Darkvenom.
