Looks like the team of OC Forums had a blast at their overclocking meet-up. Check out the article for more pictures and videos!
The weekend of the party has passed and the event itself is over, but the party has just begun for the Overclockers.com Benchmarking team! Everyone whom attended had a blast meeting each other and pounding on computer hardware throughout the weekend. With mountains of hardware, 720 Liters of Liquid Nitrogen to burn, and support from leading hardware manufacturers Corsair and Gigabyte. Having a great time was guaranteed!
The Overclockers.com Benchmarking team competes on HWBot.org and is currently ranked #17th in the world amongst hundreds of international teams. Put simply, they run their computers as fast as their hardware permits (far beyond spec), run benchmarks to gauge their computing power, and earn points for beating other benchmark submissions. The team met for a Liquid Nitrogen party in Tyler, TX last weekend. Our goals were simple: Meet our teammates and online friends in person, learn how to use LN2, and grab whatever points and records we could on hwbot.org. Prior to the weekend, only one in attendance had used LN2 before. By the end of the weekend, we all wondered how we could live with ourselves using anything less again.
