Organizing an overclocking competition has always been a tedious and time-consuming project. The HWBOT Competition Engine (“HCE”) is packed with all kinds of features to host incredible competitions. The competition engine is open to everyone, so now you can create your own contest and compete with your friends!
Why would you use HCE?
The HWBOT Competition Engine allows any individual or small organization to host their own overclocking competition. For example, HCE makes it very easy to run overclocking competitions at your local LAN party, overclocking gathering or event demonstration. Before, competitions were limited to the exclusive club of HWBOT partners and privileged overclockers. But things have changed and today anyone can run their own competition!
What type of competition can we host?
The HWBOT Competition Engine is very flexible. It can support several types of competitions. User vs. User, Teams vs. Teams, limited to specific countries or exclusive to specific users. The HCE also features options to either make your competition completely closed or fully open to the global audience of HWBOT.
The choice is up to you. You can customize your competitions as you please and design your perfect competition. Find out more inside ->
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!
Right at the start of Computex we wrapped up our two latest Rookie Rumbles. The newly crowned Rookie Champions are Kjburto from the USA and Harrynowl from the UK. Harrynowl in particular dominated his competition scoring 141 out of the 150 available points with his Sempron 145 clocked at 4.4GHz. Our two lucky winners are Ayiphelmy from Indonesia for this result and Northsys from Hungary for this result. Congratulations to everyone!
It has been a long wait for the Team Cup fanatics, but it's finally here! The HWBOT Team Cup 2014 continues the tradition of the Team Cup series featuring a challenging series of benchmarks to be run with a wide variety of hardware. Just like the previous years, the Team Cup is split up in separate competitions. This year we have four: a CPU challenge, a GPU challenge, a Memory challenge and a Miscellaneous challenge.
Below you can find an overview of the benchmark and hardware limitations in the four sub competitions.
The timeframe is the same for each of the sub-competitions. We start on June 1st 12PM GMT+0 and wrap things up on September 30th 12PM GMT+0. Over the course of the four months you can submit to any of the stages in the four sub-competitions and gather points for your team. On September 23 12PM GMT+0, seven days before the end of the competition, an elimination takes place and only the five best teams will be allowed to continue submitting until the very end.
Will Madshrimps from Belgium dominate the Team Cup again, or is Overclock.net out for revenge? Amongst the favorites we must definitely include the HwBox team from Greece as they dominated all the warm-up rounds. Or maybe this year we'll see an outsider capture the gold. Let's wait and see!
Good luck to everyone! -> READ MORE
