The OC Show, Season 4 Episode 11 took place a few days ago and is now available on the OverClocking-TV YouTube channel. Atlas, Toolius, Buildzoid and Trouffman once again take on a broad range of overclocking-related topics in a pretty laid back and inform podcast.
As ever Toolius gets the show underway with an overview of the competitive overclocking that is taking place on the O-ESPORTS platform. Front and center we have the HWBOT Team Cup where things are hotting up nicely near the top of the table. We find Warp9-systems and Overclock.net vying for the win with just a handful of points separating the two. Overclock.net have the advantage for now, but how long will it last. The Road to Pro Challenger Divisions are also coming to a climax as well as the latest round of the Rookie Rumble. Plenty of action chew over as we move towards the end of September.
The topic then changes gears a little as the guys discuss the most recent HWBOT World Tour visits to Yogyakarta, Indonesia and Montreal, Canada. Trouff gives us an overview of the Montreal 2017 event which took place at DreamHack 2017, an event which saw thousands of gamers and enthusiasts attend the largest tech expo in the region. The event featured Ambient Overclocking Workshops that were free for all attendees. Take a 30 minute tutorial then sit down at a PC and try and score as highly as possible. The systems used for the workshops were all X299 platform systems with Core i9 7920X processors. Pretty nice rigs for Amateurs! Trouff also goes on to describe the Extreme Overclocking Workshops that were also hosted and the experience of getting folks up to speed with LN2 pouring, among other things.
There is also a discussion related to the Yogyakarta 2017 event which also took place a week or so ago. The highlight for many was the AOCT (Amateur Overclocking Tournament), arguably one of the best attended and most exciting amateur / ambient contests anywhere in the world. The event also featured the the OCWC Yogyakarta 2017 Qualifier contest which is where the region’s best extreme overclockers competed for a spot in the finals at the end of the year.
