Back in May of this year we brought you news about a new kind of overclocking event hosted by ASUS South Africa and the country’s No.1 overclocker, DrWeez. Inspired partly by the ROG Camp event which has been held in Berlin, Germany for the last few years, the ROG Masterclass event involves prominent YouTubers and tech enthusiasts being invited to learn all about overclocking from the master himself. DrWeez hosts the event at his home, giving attendees a comprehensive course that includes tutorials about motherboard insulation, LN2 pot mounting, BIOS tweaking and of course, running benchmarks to see just how they’re we’re doing.
In a follow up event (Part II) just last weekend, DrWeez again invited four lucky local tech media folks into his den to try their hand at pushing a CPU under Liquid Nitrogen. With help from ASUS South Africa all the gear was provided so that his guests would have everything they would need to prepare the hardware for a real LN2 benching session. Step one of course included motherboard preparation. Once prepped it’s time to break out the paper towels, mount the LN2 pot and starting pouring the LN2 followed by some fun raising clocks and voltages.
It certainly seems a like a good time was had by all four attendees (as well as DrWeez and the ASUS rep). Here’s a final shot of the group at the end of the event, which I’m pretty sure would have also involved a good old fashioned Braai!
As you can see in the image above, ‘Graduation’ certificates were given to those who managed to push a Core i7 7700K beyind 6.5GHz. No mean feat by any means. We look forward to seeing what content these guys can produce ion terms of event coverage. I’m especially looking forward to seeing what UFDisciple pumps out. Watch this space!
