The guys from Overclock.net hosted a small section of the Good Game Con 2016 eSports event over the weekend of May 21st and 22nd 2016. Good Game Con is in fact one of North America’s largest eSports events, this year attracting over 4000 attendees and 400,000 unique online viewers. Good Game Con attempts to amalgamate several of Canada’s, and in particular Toronto’s gaming communities. this year it also attracted the attendance of Overclock.net, one of the world’s largest PC enthusiast and overclocking forums.
LN2 Benching @ Good Game Con 2016
As well as being a community meetup with competitive gaming on titles like CS:GO, Dota 2 and LOL, the event also attracted several Extreme overclockers who used the opportunity to get together for a social event to share knowledge and ideas and of course, get down to some serious sub-zero overclocking. North America World Series winner marc0053, who also happens to be ranked as Canada’s No.1 extreme overclocker on HWBOT, was in attendance at the event benching his Core i7 6700K on an ASRock Z170 OC Formula.
Overclock.net of course has a very active and large team on HWBOT so it was no surprise to find OCN team captain Rasparthe at the event. A self confessed retro bencher, Rasparthe got down to some serious old school benching with a classic DFI Lan Party motherboard and his AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 chip. Among several others, D3LTA_KING was also at the event getting down to some retro VGA benching with a classic Nvidia 9800GT card.
The OCN @ Good Game Con 2016 meetup is great example of a local community, in this case the OCN.net members residing on the East side of Canada and the US, coming together at a larger parent LAN event. The event is great opportunity for a community like that found on OCN.net, to socialize and engage in BYOC competitive gaming, while and also organizing LN2 delivery so that the region’s top OC talent can show off their skills and spread the word of overclocking.
