At OverClocking-TV, our mission is this: Promote the practice of overclocking worldwide. No matter Pro, extreme or enthusiast – all sorts of OC deserve to be broadcasted. This is our only goal and nothing has changed since we started back in 2009.
Back then things were still very archaic. We used SD handy-cams to cover events, and our streams were merely music and a 360p hell sometimes only 240p video feeds. But over time, we improved and technology backed us up. Covering each year more events slowly got us access to better gear; dramatically developed our skills and this lead us to the point where we are today.
We shoot event coverages all over the world; OCTV is owner of the largest archive of Live OC video footage & picutures in the world (we have stuff dating back to the early shamino/hipro era). We stream now only in HD/FHD and even sometimes go wild with 4K video projects.
Those of you who follow me on Facebook may have seen a couple of pictures of my latest project passing by. I received numerous questions about this ongoing project and I figured there is no better place to share early bits and pieces than here.
Last year, in January 2013, we released a short time-lapse video of a Kingpincooling Venom pot freezing up. Quite experimental back then and the main goal was to find out freeze-unfreeze-refreeze timelapse footage would look like in comparison to static pictures of frozen hardware gear.
Using last year’s result as a base, we decided to push things further (keep pushing it! right?) and scale up to a complete system. In fact, we did not just use a motherboard, CPU pot and one graphics cars, we went for a full 4-Way system.
The Rookie Rumble competitions are an incredible success. With a combined total of 1077 benchmark results submitted by 380 Rookie overclockers in the past three weeks, we have never seen such great activity during a Rumble. The competitions are getting tougher and the scores are getting better too, which means that the Rookies are learning fast and are more than ready for a step up to the Novice or Enthusiast League.
In the latest editions, we celebrate JunkDogg and Nvidiaforever2’s victories and crown them to the new Kings of the Rookies!
In last week’s write-up we brought up a couple of arguments why your team should recruit a Rookie. During our journey to find out more about Rookies who already joined an overclocking team, we stumbled on a small but active UK-based team operating under the name Team MLG. Team MLG is a fairly small overclocking team. The team originates from a gaming community of 111 members based in the UK. Founded by Paul "Huddy" Hudson and a couple of his gamer friends, the community recently started overclocking at HWBOT. We got in touch with the Team Captain Gregster and asked him a couple of questions about the team, HWBOT and overclocking. Continue to the full interview ->
With the introduction of the new Overclocker Leagues, the Rookie overclockers now have a prominent place in the HWBOT community. The Rookies have always existed, but only recently surfaced via the Rookie Rumble competitions. The Rookie Rumble is a competition only for Rookies – the overclockers who have been at the site for 3 months or less. Every month we see new record highs of Rookies joining the site, but where will the Rookies learn the tricks of overclocking? Time to recruit the Rookies!
