World Tour 2016 General Information

HWBOT World Tour 2016 Spans Seven Countries and Five Continents

The HWBOT World Tour is a series of overclocking events held around the globe that aims to provide a relaxed social environment for overclockers to learn, share and compete. The idea is primarily to nurture the next generation of overclockers with open OC workshops where total amateurs can get some first hands-on experience and learn vital tricks and tweaks from more seasoned players. Of course no OC event would be complete without some competitive action so each stop on the tour offers contests that cater for all levels and abilities, as well as providing a platform for some seriously extreme overclocking. The LN2 flows freely.

HWBOT is proud to announce the preliminary dates and locations for the HWBOT World Tour 2016. A follow up to the highly successful inaugural World Tour of 2015, the HWBOT World Tour 2016 expands the concept to include seven dates throughout the year that span the entire globe. “The World Tour 2016 represents our commitment to nurturing the growth of the Overclocking community throughout all regions of the globe,” commented Pieter-Jan Plaisier, Director at HWBOT. “The fact that this year’s World Tour will reach more overclockers in more countries than ever is a fantastic testament to the event’s success.”.
