Overclockers are still being used by the hardware manufacturers for highlighting the durability, quality of components and versatility of their products. Last weekend the brand new Hardware.Info Pro OC team was present at the huge shop of Informatique in the Netherlands; joining forces with MSI and this should be an ideal cocktail for new records.
