OC Workshops and World Series Contest for Amateurs
An important feature of the HWBOT World Tour is the provision of open overclocking workshops. Here newcomers can learn the basic techniques involved with overclocking using the XTU benchmark, followed by a chance to submit a score to the OC-ESPORTS platform and enjoy a first taste of real OC competition.
OC Workshops will be conducted in Chinese in the morning sessions and English in the afternoon. Chinese language OC Workshops will be conducted by Coolaler, one Taiwan’s most seasoned and respected overclockers. Taiwanese attendees can pre-register for the OC Workshops by visiting the Coolaler website: http://www.coolaler.com
The OC workshops also act as the qualification round for the World Series for Amateurs with the highest four scores submitted throughout the week invited to join the semi-finals of the World Series for Amateurs held on the morning of Saturday June 4th.
