The Poitiers 2017 leg of the HWBOT World Tour took place a few weeks ago, bringing overclocking workshops and contests to Gamers Assembly in France. Arguably the highlight of the event was the Overclocking World Championship Poitiers 2017 Qualifier which invited Europe’s most feared and respected extreme overclockers to compete for a place in the OCWC Final at the end of the year. The great news today is that you can now relive the grand final between Germany’s Dancop and France’s Niuulh thanks to OverClocking-TV who as always, were at ground zero hosting a live stream.
The OCWC17 Poitiers Qualifier got underway with a qualification segment where twenty extreme overlockers competed on three stages; SuperPi 32M, Cinebench R15 and 3DMark11 Physics. The top four qualified for the semi-finals and were invited back the next day – Wizerty, Dancop orion24 and Niuulh made the cut. Semi-final 1v1 matches were held, each lasting 30 minutes using randomly drawn Core i7 7700K CPUs. Benchmarks were also drawn at random with each Overclocker possessing one veto to avoid an unfavorable selection. Semi-Final matches went ahead and saw French No.1 lose out to outsider Niuulh who is ranked 3rd in his native France and 42nd globally. Meanwhile Dancop showed his class in live overclocking contests by beating orion24. The grand final was setup.
