Today’s entry in the Overclocker in Profile series brings us to BlueFiber from Indonesia, a quickly rising star from a country that has a track record for producing some of the most feared competitive overclockers on the planet. Let’s take a look behind the LN2 flask to see who BlueFiber really is, and of course recall how he claimed a seat at the OCWC 2017 Final..
The Man Behind the LN2 Flask: BlueFiber (Indonesia)
Chandra Wijaya, a.k.a. BlueFiber has been a HWBOT member and active overclocker since August 2015 which makes him one of the less experienced contenders for the Overclocking World Championship 2017 crown. Like many overclockers he first encountered it when trying to get more from his PC without splashing out extra cash. After encountering HWBOT and the Amateur Overclocking Tournament (AOCT), a massive OC contest in Indonesia that is strictly amateur-only, he was hooked. Having encountered competitive overclocking from the offset, he remains addicted to the live OC contest format, a trait that you will find in the heart of most Indonesian overclockers..
It was earlier this year during the GIGABYTE March Madness contest that Chandra really started to hone his OC skills, hooking up with his buddy IvanCupa to improve his extreme OC benching techniques. Alva ‘Lucky_n00b’ Jonathan gave Chandra a seat in his lab and access to the tools of the trade needed to really compete, a pivotal experience that has allowed him to raise his game to become a true Extreme League overclocker.
The Road to the OCWC 2017 Final
Before we get to the OCWC Yoyakarta 2017 Qualifier contest, let’s just point out that BlueFiber and team partner IvanCupa actually won the AOCT 2017 contest first before going on to the extreme OCWC contest. AOCT is a contest that sets out to determine the best amateur overclocker in Indonesia. The contest has a long history and is actually one of the earliest examples of a technology website and community actively recruiting overclockers to help grow and nurture the hobby.
The first day of the contest is the Motherboard Session where pairs of overclockers compete on motherboards from ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI and BIOSTAR. It’s a test of the team’s ability to deal with different hardware and different BIOSes. At the end of the day LucasB95 and Royal_Flush finished top with a total points haul of 134 points with IvanCupa and BlueFiber finishing in second with 108 points..
