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.
Back in July of this year HWBOT X enjoyed its first ever event in Latin America with an OC demonstration and workshop in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. David Martinez at that time remarked how he hoped the event could become a regular thing at the country’s top universities. The great news today is that last Friday David held a second event, again in San Pedro Sula, only this time the event was an even greater success attracting even more students who were interested in learning all about the art of overclocking.
Building on the success of the ASUS OC Summit held in Moscow earlier this year the company repeated the event just a week or so ago, inviting some of Russia’s most talented extreme overclockers to work together to try and break some records. This time they were certainly not disappointed as the gang from Team Russia, who along with current World No.1 Xtreme Addict, managed to post some seriously solid scores.
Today we bring you news of another successful OC meetup in Europe with Italians Hardware Ready organizing the very first HWRDAY in Rimini Italy. The event invited locally based overclockers to enjoy sub-zero extreme overclocking with LN2 in a relaxed social environment, while also trying to score has highly as possible in the HWBOT rankings.
HWBOT X enjoyed its first ever event in Latin America just a few days ago, with an Overclocking workshop and demonstration organized in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The event took place at one of the country’s most respected Technology Universities, the Universidad Tecnológica Centroamericana, known locally as UNITEC or in English as the Central American Technological University. The idea was to expose UNITEC undergraduates to the general concepts of overclocking in the hope of inspiring some Honduras’ greatest minds to start overclocking.
Just a few weeks ago we saw the first ever HWBOT X event organized in Spain at a major LAN party with the OC School at Dreamhack Valencia. Today we look at a similar OC event that was held in Bilbao, Spain. This time the event took place during the Euskal Encounter, a computer party for tech amateurs and professionals that takes place at various places around Europe – the perfect place to promote the sport of Overclocking you might say.
Sometimes it seems that like-minded people are simply drawn together to unite in a single purpose or calling. That’s the impression that springs to mind when you consider the Summer OC Party that took place over the weekend of July 23rd and 24th of this year. The event was organised in a way that produced very relaxed, social environment were overclockers spent the weekend benching with LN2, trading experiences and stories and generally having a good time collectively enjoying their hobby.
Spain recently saw its first ever Overclocking event held at a major LAN party, in this case we’re talking about Dreamhack in Valencia. The OC School event was organized by local overclocker ChentinoX, the current Spanish No.3, with support from sponsors GIGABYTE, Antec and HWBOT X. The OC School featured presentations, workshops and most importantly, a competitive OC contest hosted on OC-ESPORTS.
ASUS are doing a great job of spreading the word of overclocking in India of late. One great example of this is the ASUS Overclocking Tour India, a series of events running throughout the year at various locations in India. Following up on the first stop of the Tour which was held in Kolkata back in February of this year, the second leg of the tour took place in Bangalore, the capital of India’s southern Karnataka state and one of the country’s most important technology industry hubs.
Indonesia has become a hotbed of young overclocking talent, thanks in part to a large, well organised and pro-active community that continues to provide events where locals can compete, share and learn. One such event, The Enthusiast Zone Festival 2016, was held throughout June and July at the Mengga Dua Mall in Jakarta. The event was held with the help of several key industry partners including AOC, ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI, RAZER, Stealseries, Patriot, In-Win and several others.
