Welcome to part two of the Overclocker Profiles series where we introduce each of the overclockers that will compete in the Overclocking World Championship Final which is just days away. We continue today by introducing you to a PXHX from Brazil, an overclocker that is one of three overclockers to make a second appearance in this competition. Let’s have a gander at how PXHX qualified for the OCWC 2017 Final and also a look at the man behind the LN2 flask.
The Man Behind the LN2 Flask: PXHX (Brazil)
Brazilian overclockers have always enjoyed a solid presence on HWBOT. Rbuass (a.k.a. Ronaldo Buassali) is the legend that will spring to many minds, but today it’s difficult to see past Paulo Marquezini, an overclocker that uses the handle PXHX. Paulo is currently the fourth highest ranked Brazilian overclocker on HWBOT, just behind Darkvenom, joee90br and Rbuass, but don’t let that fool you, in live extreme overclocking contests Paulo has proved himself to be the top dog. Paulo managed to win the OCWC Sao Paulo Qualifier for the second year running, a feat only matched by two others. In the 2016 OCWC Final in Berlin, he also gave a very decent account of himself, coming fourth overall in the initial ranking contest. PXHX is the highest ranked member of the Team Brazil and a team captain too. In the Worldwide HWBOT rankings he is currently 137th. In Berlin next week Paulo will be the only Latin American representative.
The Road to the OCWC 2017 Final
Paulo qualified to compete in the OCWC 2017 Final by winning the OCWC Sao Paulo 2017 Qualifier contest which took place at the Campus Party on February 5th of this year. Extreme overclockers had been present at the Campus Party event throughout the week, taking advantage of the copious LN2 provided. After a qualifying day on February 3rd to decide which overclocker would face each other in the Semi’s, the roster was established. Semi Final 1 was a contest between PXHX and Renan0000, a newcomer to live Extreme overclocking and the HWBOT World Tour in general. In fact the first Semi-Final match proved to be what could only be described as a slightly mismatched encounter between one overclocker who had managed to go all the way to the top the previous year, and another with very little or no live overclocking experience.
