The HWBOT World Tour 2017 continues with a fourth stop at Computex 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan. This is also the fourth year in a row that the overclocking event lands in the center of the PC hardware industry, starting with the HWBOT Anniversary Gathering in 2014.
This year’s event will feature more activities than ever to celebrate overclocking! Building on the success of last year’s event, we are hoping to make this year’s Asia event even bigger. Attendees will be able to gain hands-on experience with an extreme cooled system. They will also be able to bear witness to one of the most fiercely contested World Championship Qualification contests as six Overclockers from around the world compete in the G.SKILL OC World Cup for a place in the Overclocking World Championship. This one will be unmissable!
We would like to thank the following event partners for joining this world tour stop:
For this event, three overclocking activities are available to enjoy:
- Extreme overclocking workshops for media and partners – learn to overclock using the latest hardware provided by our partners
- Extreme overclocking competition – the Overclocking World Championship 2017 – Taipei Qualifier
- Overclocker Gathering – a place to meet with LN2
