*NEW* Design Your Own Overclocking Competition With HCE

Download PDF version | Download Create Contest Form

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.

  • Password lock: make it accessible to only those that know the password
  • Public / hidden: make it featured to all HWBOT users or just for you
  • Open / private: make it open to everyone or private for VIPs

The choice is up to you. You can customize your competitions as you please and design your perfect competition.

Too bad is limited on 3 stages.For example we had a challenge on Lab501 with gtx 280 and 6 benchmarks (2001,2003,2005,2006,Vantage,Aquamark),basically the most important ones. We've learned a lot from this challenge,and nice results were posted on hwbot enthusiast league as well. I didn't see in the forms a field for limitations,can you add also something like this ?

A person on which you can always count :). Thanks Genieben.

Hmmm, very interesting. I've been thinking of throw up some team competitions for OCAU, and using the HWBot engine/site now makes that all that much easier.

Germany der8auer says:

Great work! I'm very confident, that we will use this for our team aswell in future :)

Why only 14 days tho? 30 days should be for a normal competition.

Belgium Massman says:

For longer contest (or different limitations), just send an email :)

Germany Luebke says:

nice idea. :) i would add/change: - up to 30 days or more (normal length) - up to 5 stages (or more) - option user vs user or team vs team - more than one mod possible

Romania suzuki says:

I've submitted a form,i hope it's ok. :)
