Community Leadership

Throughout its lifetime, HWBOT could never have become what it is today without the help of countless volunteers helping out primarily with moderating the incoming benchmark results, but also maintaining the hardware database and managing the forums. It is thanks to the volunteer staff that we can continue to develop this site and guide this organization to new opportunities. HWBOT was founded by the overclocking community, and will always be led by that community. The Volunteer Managing Staff is ready for any challenge ahead and relies on the will and enthusiasm of the many HWBOT staff members to help build HWBOT. Feel free to contact any of the Volunteer Managing Staff in case of concerns.
