OC-Team.be aims to group the efforts of the Belgium overclocking community under one label, delivering world breaking records using what ever hardware they can lay their hands on. While the Belgian community is small, it’s known for a tight cooperation between the members, a small country allows them to meet often to perform sub zero projects with either Liquid Nitrogen, Dry Ice, home made phase change cooling and more.
Originally created by a few loyal forum members from the Telenet (ISP) Gaming community, they have now stepped up to provide an international front end to give exposure to their overclocking endeavors as well as reach out the like minded Belgian enthusiasts to help grow their community.
Madshrimps is proud to host OC-Team.be articles and be a home and portal for this promising enthusiast community, OCT’s articles can be found through-out the site with a few ones already published and more lined up.HWBot - Benchmark Community
