It’s great to see so many overclocking events happening around the world recently, but in truth getting the right sponsorship and backing for an event can as problematic as ever. Austrian OC hub Overclockers.at are among those feeling a change in the industry as marketing budgets change direction, and funds for hardware, LN2 and floor space dry up. The decision to pull out of further OC event hosting was announced by mat just a week ago.
This unfortunate news however does have one silver lining as the guys have decided to out with a bang, announcing two final appearances to celebrate nine years of OC event involvement. They will be in attendance tomorrow at the IM.TOP 2016 exhibition followed by Game City 2016 in Vienna the day after.
Thanks to sponsors ASUS, Intel, HyperX, Seasonic and Noctua the Overclockers.at team will be introducing retailers at IM.TOP 2016 to LN2 cooled systems. With some guidance show visitors will be able to tweak the system and then compete against each other - a great way to introduce overclocking to a more business focused crowd.
The next day Overclockers.at will take their place on the main stage at Game City 2016, Austria’s biggest gaming exhibition. Taking place in at Vienna City Hall, the guys will again introduce extreme LN2 cooled overclocking, this time to a young audience, as they invite local gamers on stage to enjoy the overclocking experience first hand.
