Tones Overclock Academy III - Benelux Edition
Sunday 14th August 2011. Exactly one year after Tones Overclock Academy I, the Academy goes international. Place of action, the beautifull pitoresk city of Utrecht. It was just 2 months ago we had Gigabyte launching their X58-OC board at TOA II. For the first edition Asus was our hardware provider. This time, MSI is the guest manufactor for motherboards and videocards. Consistent sponsors are Intel for the CPUs and Corsair for memory and PSU's. Due to the international character we initially had plans for up to 20 teachers and 80 students. Before we were limited to the madshrimps crew for the teaching part. But together with volunteers from Overclock Team holland we had the opportunity to invite a lot more students.

It wasn't pushing!
Merely positively reinforcing a performance by setting a certain level of expectations.
Which I wouldn't have done if I didn't trust PJ's capabilities

As a certified safety officer (BHV) I did encountered a potential dangerious situation (accidently) Afterwards it was solved directly with an extra extention cable. Perhaps for the better, as everyone was focussing only on the wc attempt.

yeah also accidently unplugged a certain someone during a bench session
Just consider it as an extra difficulty level when i am around. Overclocking is becomming so easy on the newer platforms and "LN2 ready" vga cards. At least I (though not always intentionally) keep it a challenge.
I am getting some good idea's now for the MOA 2012 benelux qualifier. instead of trying to make you guys run 100m to an oc genie button, i could just hide all the to be used hardware in the warehouse, as a Military Class II(I) search&bench mission. Not telling that the MSI team hides there too with loaded paintball guns :P

I would have an unfair advantage with my l33T military skills...
no need to set scores, just thrash the oposition with fiersome paintball action...
