The Team Cup is a highly anticipated competition at HWBOT. A lot of overclockers are waiting for the opportunity to challenge last year’s winner Madshrimps. In preparation of the Team Cup, we hosted a warm-up competition during the month of February. For this warm up challenge we prepared five different stages, each with their own benchmark and hardware limitations. In spirit of the Team Cup, of course the hardware selection consisted of rare and unusual hardware. The requirements varied from the low-end GeForce GT 610 over the single core AMD processor, to as many as Pentium 2 CPUs you can find, to the rarest of graphics cards and eventually a little bit of SDR-Ram.
After 28 days of overclocking the victory eventually went to the HWBOX overclocking team. They collected 10 points more than the HwMaster OC Team Italy and 29 points more than XTREME OC Team Bulgaria. We really enjoyed following the competition and a lot of the top results are very impressive. It just goes to show that overclocking can be fun regardless of the hardware!
