Extreme Overclocking Session III ( EOS ) Event 2012

Tradeshow & OC events by leeghoofd @ 2012-05-24

Once in a while Team Madshrimps gets invited to attend a Team Overclocking event. Is it because people like us for who we are? Because of our looks? The knowledge we can share? Well to be honest we don't care about the previous. Most important thing on our own list is the abundant presence of free food and drinks. Secondly if the event is related to torturing PC Hardware, then we don't mind a long drive. Wickedly enough after each event, we get invited to the next upcoming one. So at least we must be doing something good. Time to get in the HWBot company war (in reality it's Massman's dad) and start the drive towards the 3rd EOS event at the cute town, called Heilbronn in Germany.

Benching Time

After the excellent food, time to get serious. We arrived with untested hardware, thus opted to go for some air runs, to get a feel how it all reacted to our inputs:



Some german benchers even install an Antivirus lol. Sorry lads, but that's too much for me to handle :)

Ofcourse we got bored pretty rapidly and started to prep the boards for more extreme cooling.




Unlike the PC Games Hardware benchers, we never use liquid paint, nor tons of erazor gum or vaseline, nor armaflex. Each bencher has it's own method, so if it works for you then it's okay.




Some more action shots:





On the left we find the beer brewer aka True Monkey from Berg Brauerei, benching hard. And yes dear readers, Massman has finally entered the 20th century and uses an SSD to bench.
