Stream – ASUS ROG Camp 2016

This year again, ASUS in Germany is back with a second season of it’s ROG Camp event series. These events are all about fostering the next generation of extreme overclockers – and from what we’ve seen – they are ferociously effective!

ROG Camp 2016 Competition Details

The ROG Camp is always in two phases. First it starts off with an open online qualifiers hosted at OC-Esports. It is limited to overclockers from the Germany, Switzerland and Austria regions. (Competiton page). Of course, such qualifier is also limited to overclockers that have never done LN2 overclocking before.

Then, once the qualifiers are done, the top 8 overclockers are invited for a 2 days event where the following two activities are prepared for them:

  1. First Day : Extreme Overclocking training by Roman Hartung (aka der8auer)
  2. Second Day : Extreme Overclocking competition

On the first day, each overclocker is being taught the basics of extreme overclocking. Roman explains them how to insulate their motherboard, how to mount an LN2 pot and gives them some tips, tricks and valuable advises to safely bench with liquid nitrogen. They have the whole day to practice.
On the second day, no more practice – things are serious! The 8 overclockers are pitted against each other in a live tournament for some cool prizes and of course, pride and glory!

This years participating overclockers are:

  • Nik from Germany
  • SirTryAlot from Switzerland
  • TAGG from Austria
  • Punk Sods from Germany
  • P5ych0 from Germany

Aftermovie & replay of the HWT Asia Computex Qualifier

The HWBOT World Tour Asia Computex is behind us and it was awesome. This was an impressive milestone from both a personal and a team-work point-of-view.

From the size, it was the biggest space we had to deal with for both managing the space for the coverage but also the location, on the main passage hall of the Computex (arguably the most important tradeshow about PC Hardware). From the duration, it was a crazy complete week, with matches everyday this during one of the most hardware-news related week of the year, it was both a week-long thrill and an intense marathon against fatigue mentally and physically.

After five days of live casting the preparations and everyday matches at what is undeniably the biggest booth of the tradeshow, we wanted to give this aftermovie a different taste, with commentary and the smiles & happiness that made this event one to remember.

With a dozen of extreme overclockers with a free-supply of Liquid Nitrogen (-196c) and the horde of amateurs that passed by the area to discover and try the newly launched Intel Core i7 6950X CPU, we gathered some of the best moments in this aftermovie.

We have also uploaded the entirety of the Matches replay for you to experience the every day battle leading to the Final.

Each day featured it’s face-to-face (1v1) battle among the top athletes of this day qualifier, winner of the battle is granted access to the Qualifier Final.

In the end, Xtreme_Addict won his golden ticket to the Overclocking World Championship that will be streamed live on OverClocking-TV on December 4th.

Until next time, Keep Pushing It !

OverClocking-TV HWBOT and Streacom Bring the Open Benchtable to Market, a Portable Benchtable for Enthusiasts and Professionals

bc1-hard-025-000

August 23, 2016 – OverClocking-TV is today delighted to announce the official arrival of the Open Benchtable, a lightweight, toolless benchtable that has been designed specifically for portability and ease of use. Co-developed with HWBOT and Streacom, the Open Benchtable is a community-developed product that towers above current offerings in terms of portability, esthetics and general design.

Being 8mm thick and weighing a mere 1.82kg, the Open Benchtable is uniquely designed for travelling overclockers, enthusiasts and technical professionals who need put together a full open PC while on the road. It uniquely integrates all the components needed to quickly set up a benching or test platform including; standoffs, screws and brackets. Welcome to the next level of convenience and portability.

“The Open Benchtable story starts with a group of community members recognising the need for a wholly more portable benchtable solution,” commented Timothée Pineau, head of Project Development at HWBOT and VP of OverClocking-TV. “The design of the Open Benchtable has continued to evolve and improve with more OC community members contributing to help us finally arrive at the incredible design we have today.”

The Open Benchtable: True portability – Uniquely Designed, Ingeniously Implemented.

The Open Benchtable has been designed from day one with one key question in mind – how can we design a fully functional benchtable that is also 100% portable? Today, Overclocking is a community driven hobby and Esport where overclockers are willing to traverse the globe to bench with and compete against other like-minded people. The project has now developed a benchtable that is highly suited to the needs of a travelling PC enthusiast, overclocker, or any professional who needs to test components in the field.

The main body of the Open Benchtable is made of machined, anodized aluminum which offers fantastic rigidity while also being extremely lightweight. The body also features an integrated carry handle with legs, standoffs, and brackets all seamlessly stowed within. This means no moving (or indeed rattling) parts when in transit.

The Open Benchtable Project

Another crucial aspect of the Open Benchtable project is that its design is open to third party developers of additional accessories. Started by HWBOT and OverClocking-TV and later joined by Streacom, the project will allow full access to the blueprint files of this final product revision. This allows third party developers to build accessories that are compatible with all Open Benchtable products, plus modify and share their design improvements.

Ultimately, community enthusiasts will be able to share their own unique accessory designs and 3D files on the Open Benchtable site for others to use. Blueprints and other design related documentation will made publicly available later in Q3 2016.
