HWBOT World Tour: Taipei 2017 – OC Gathering Update

The biggest technology event in Asia is almost upon us with Computex 2017 now just over two weeks away. For overclockers in attendance the HWBOT World Tour will play a pivotal role once again. Building on the success of last year’s Asia leg of the World Tour, this year’s event promises to be equally awesome with plenty going before and during the Computex 2017 trade show.

Overclockers Gathering: May 26 - 28

From an Overclocking community perspective the OC Gathering will represent a great chance for attending overclockers (be they individuals, media, or industry stooges) to join us for three days of free-style and social overclocking. We’ve booked a large room at the Taipei World Trade (located in the downtown Hsin-Ye area in the heart of the city) where for around $100 US you can enjoy unlimited access to LN2 plus basics like monitors, peripherals, PSUs other hardware, plus food plus drinks.

  • -Where?
  • -Taiwan World Trade Center (TWTC) Exhibition Hall 1, Conference Room #2
  • -Google Maps
  • -Nearest MRT Station is Taipei 101 / World Trade Center

  • -When?
  • -Fri May 26th 10am - 5pm
  • -Sat May 27th 9am - 5pm
  • -Sun May 28th 9am - 5pm

  • -What will be provided?
  • -Unlimited LN2 (plus flasks)
  • -PSUs, monitors, keyboards, mice
  • -Limited number of Intel Core i7 7700K and Intel Core i7 6950X processors
  • -Limited number of X99 platform motherboards
  • -Food and drinks throughout the day

At the moment we also trying to bring a memory partner on board as well as a thermal paste partner. The finer details will become clearer as the days go by.All the above costs just $103.49 (inc. taxes and fees). A pretty solid offer for any overclocker in Taiwan in the days leading up to Computex 2017.

Visit this eventbrite page here to reserve your seat.

Finally, we tentatively planning a meetup at a bar in Taipei on the evening of Saturday 27th. If you cannot make the OC Gathering, it would be a great opportunity for all overclockers in Taipei for Computex to hang out, sink a few and do what overclockers do best… If you want to join the meetup, chime in below or in this forum thread here (probably good to mention what day you are free with so much going on throughout the week).
