This monday ocaholic had the possibility to travel to Berlin to take pat at the Advanced Overclockin Championship which were organized by ASUS. Team ocaholic was represented by splmann (Roger Tanner) and rewarder (Marc Büchel)
At this point we thank ASUS very much for inviting ocaholic to Berlin. We really enjoyed the time we had there and are all looking forward to a next event.
On monday the 18.08.08 ASUS arranged the first AOCC in europe. Therfore they invited ten teams from different countries to Berlin to prove their extreme-overclocking abilities. Switzlerand was represented by splmann (Roger Tanner) and rewarder (Marc Büchel).
After an exhausting but very funny night where we had one or two beers too much with overclockers from hungry and holland we arrived in the event location at around 10:30 am. We only had a very vague image with what we would be surprised and therefore we didn't have any expectations. Inside we were nearly buried by hardware. ASUS provided to all the participants Rampage Extreme motherboards and Radeon 4870 X2 graphic cards. At this point all the overclockers were briefed by ASUS and told that we had around one and a half hours to build up the systems and that the benchmark sessions should take part from 14:00 to 18:00. After that they let us hardware hungry child grab the stuff and play with it.
- CPU: Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770 (C1)
- Mainboard: ASUS Rampage Extreme
- Graphics cards: 2 x ASUS 4870 X2
- Memory: Mushkin DDR3 1800MHz (14400)
- Power supply: Tagan BZ 1300W
with the hardware under our arms we looked for a nice little place and found one near a huge beat box which in the the end maltreated our audiophile mind.
