The primary aim of the HWBOT X initiative is to list and promote overclocking events that are happening around the world. One event that took place just a few days ago was hosted by South Africa’s No.1 overclocker Dr Weez. Working in conjunction with partners ASUS DrWeez (known to most of his fellow Overclockers as Andrew) invited local South African media representative to his home to try their hand at genuine extreme overclocking – the full nine yards with tutorials about motherboard insulation, LN2 pot mounting, BIOS tweaking and of course, running benchmarks to see just how well we’re doing. The event was called the ROG Masterclass, and in true South African fashion, also include a braai. Among the media invited to the event was avid YouTuber Sam Wright who has produced a fantastic video of the event that really is a must see:
The event series is sponsored by ASUS branded the ROG Masterclass by DrWeez. He invited local media into his den to try their hand at pushing a CPU under Liquid Nitrogen. DrWeez provided the gear (with support from ASUS) that his guests would need to prepare the hardware for a rel, LN2 benching session, beginning with 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.
From watching her video, (above) we soon learn that although she is indeed reasonably tech savvy, she’s never actually built a PC before. But who cares – within a matter of hours she’s pouring LN2 and running benchmarks with a vengeance. Good going. In fact the video is a real testaement to just how accessible even the most extreme overclocking can be if you have the right kind of tutelage. The great news is that Andrew and ASUS plane to make the ROG Masterclass a full on series with more events like this one happening in the near future.
