Moderator Ranking 2014 Updated: Christian Ney On Average 8 Actions Per Day!

The operations of HWBOT have been expanding significantly over the past years. From a forum bot collecting overclocking results around the internet we moved to our own website with leagues and competitions and are now looking at organizing our own live events. The size of this community is fairly small compared to for example the gaming community, but that doesn't make the management a lot easier. In fact due to the technical nature of our hobby and passion, HWBOT can simply not exist without the great effort from our largely volunteer staff.

Under the lead of Head of Moderating Christian Ney, the moderating team is on track to a record-breaking 2014 in terms of result moderating. The year is now 243 days old and Christian Ney has executed 1884 moderator actions. That's an average of almost 8 moderated scores per day! El Genieben is earning his stripes as well, following at 1385 moderator actions.

Of course moderating is only a part of the work our complete moderator staff takes care of. This does not include the discussions, conference calls, contact with benchmark developers, taking care of the hardware database, developing software tools and so much more. Thank you very much for your hard work and effort, Staff! Without you HWBOT would not be what it is today!

The OC Show Episode #4: Computex 2014 Overview with Intel, HyperX G.SKILL Competitions, HWBOT OC Anniversary Gathering, Devil's Canyon and Pentium AE

It is only a week or so until the next episode of The OC Show features in The Overclocker magazine and to warm up we'd like to share the fourth episode of the series with you. In this episode we have Trouffman on as guest and talk about the overclocking happenings at Computex, including the Gathering, we cover the new Devil's Canyon CPUs and of course talk about the Pentium Anniversary Edition.

This episode aired 2nd of June. Enjoy!

The OC Show Concept

As The Overclocker moved to a new publishing platform, Neo (editor-in-chief) informed us it is now possible to embed videos in the magazine. He suggested to embed an OCTV video in each magazine. The response from OCTV was very positive, and quickly the idea rose to do a bimonthly chit-chat talk about overclocking related topics.

In each episode, Pieter (Massman - HWBOT) and Tim (Xyala - OCTV) cover things that happened in the overclocking community. This includes upcoming events, new hardware releases, interesting overclocking records, benchmark discussions, and maybe even a tiny bit of industry gossip. "This is long overdue" says Tim, "but now that OCTV and HWBOT are both located in Taiwan, setting up this kind of initiative is much easier." HWBOT and OCTV have collaborated on several productions in the past. The OC Show marks as a first long-term scheduled partnership.

Why TheOverclocker?

"TheOverclocker is today's main go-to magazine-style read for overclockers and hardware enthusiasts" says Tim, "it makes sense to share our content to the TOC readers first." Of course this video is also hosted on the OCTV YouTube channel, and can be shared and embedded by everyone.

In This Episode

In the fourth episode of The OC Show, we look back at all the overclocking activities of Computex 2014. We focus on the competitions of Intel, HyperX and G.SKILL and share our thoughts on the HWBOT OC Anniversary Gathering post-Computex event. We also cover Intel's new Devil's Canyon and Pentium Anniversary Edition and contemplate on what next year will bring for overclocking.

OC4DOGE Dogecoin Community Competition Announced

From the competition organizer: "Overclockers spend a lot of time asking for and giving help. Many times this help ends up saving people's components or helps them increase their computer speed. These are things that certainly deserve more than just a thanks. This kind of free help deserves getting tipped so let’s be the first coin used for this. There are over 55,000 overclockers on HWBOT and many of them participate in other computer enthusiast forums, so what better way to introduce them to Dogecoin is there than giving it to the 9 best overclockers in 3 different competition events. To find these 9 best there will an overclocking competition with the winners getting the Dogecoin prize.

There will be 3 different stages all limited to only using air or watercooling.

  • Intel SuperPi 32M (maximum frequency of 4.38 GHz)
  • AMD SuperPi 32M (maximum frequency of 4.57 GHz)
  • 3DMark Sky Diver with AMD Tahiti (HD7970/7950 and R9 280X/280) and Nvidia GK104 (GTX 680/670/770/760) based GPUs

This competition will happen regardless of the amount of Dogecoin raised. However the more dogecoin gets raised for the prize pool the more attention the competition will get. I will donate an initial 31,500 DOGE to make sure that even in the worst case scenario the competiton can still happen. The only downside being that the winner of each stage will only get 6,000 Dogecoin the second place will get 3,000 and third will get 1,500. The competition will launch September 1st and go on until the end of September. By October 2nd the Dogecoin will be distributed to the winners. To make everything fair I, the organizer, will not be participating."

Show Notes

Computex 2014 Wrap up and MSI MOA Americas Qualifier

It has been two months since the last Hardware Asylum Podcast and while we strive to have regular episodes posted for our listeners there are times when life gets in the way and schedules clash. Dennis and Darren had difficulty being in the same state over the past two months and sadly, the podcast suffered. Well, the duo is back and starts the podcast off with a brief introduction as to what has been happening.

We should also mention that two months can wreck havoc on remembering mundane details like the warranty length on the new Gigabyte Black Edition motherboards which is 5 years and not the 3 that was mentioned in the podcast.
