If you joined HWBOT between three months and one year to date, you fall in the Novice category of overclockers at HWBOT. That means you already have a bit of experience from the Rookie Rumble and are looking for your next challenge in overclocking. The Novice Nimble competition series is set up specifically for this group of people and with this guide we want to help you participate in the Novice Nimble.
Since the Novice Nimble is a team-based overclocking competition, to get started you first need to find an overclocking team. There are a couple thousand teams active at HWBOT, so finding your match might not be easy. Here are a couple of pointers:
- Large teams usually have an active forum of members ready to help you with the Novice Nimble. A large group increases your chance on finding good advice, but might also be overwhelming if the overclockers are more extreme than you.
- Small teams are usually more tight-knit and family-like. The knowledge may be a bit more limited, but the communities make up in enthusiasm and support.
- There are plenty of local forums where you can look for help in your native language. If you’re not fluent in English, maybe a local forum will suit your needs better.
- It is very easy to switch teams at HWBOT, so don’t feel like your choice is forever. Look around and join the team you feel most comfortable with.
To join a team, go to your personal profile settings and find the Team section. In the dropdown menu you can select the team you want to join. If you don’t know which team you want to be part of and still want to compete in the Novice Nimble, you can always start your own team.
We hope this small guide can help you get started with the Novice Nimble. If you’re looking for a team that is currently active in the Novice Nimble, check out some of the forum topics of the teams below:
