Cool write-up! Read here
HWBOT held another crazy Country Cup tournament or “World Cup of overclocking” as they refer to it and it was something else this year. The competition was by far the largest one ever run with more countries and result submissions than any other comp in the past.
In the end overclockers from Australia triumphed with an emphatic last 4 stage wins but it was not all smooth sailing for the team down under! Germany, France, Indonesia and USA made sure it all went down to the wire and no doubt will set precedent for another huge clash in 2014.
Let’s talk about this competition a little for those of you who were not aware there was “an overclocking World Cup” on and how you could get involved this year.
First of all for any of you unfamiliar with the biggest and best known overclocking competition website in the world, make sure you visit HWBOT.ORG. For overclockers, this is a familiar website but perhaps for non-overclockers you may remember the recent articles on ban of Windows 8 for competitive purposes which was largely the result of the HWBOT admin team finding some loopholes in the latest Microsoft OS which have since been patched in most cases. Yes, that’s right, this is the gathering place of some of the world’s biggest and best geeks AND nerds who share a passion for overclocking. It’s become a big community in the last 10 years so definitely something to check out in your free time!
