The Magnificent Twenty
Among the competitors in the MSI European OC Challenge were some familiar faces, including Westyle, JMax, Marmott, Florian 76, Foxhound and RemZeyR. These folks all have extensive experience with overclocking on all types of motherboards, and have already garnered several world records.
But to participate in the qualifying rounds of the MSI competition, they had to prove they had the right stuff. Westyle, for example, whipped out his liquid-nitrogen canister, a Core 2 Duo E8400 and several motherboards. And the results were soon there for all to see:
Those impressive scores opened the doors of the competition for our friend, and so it was that he showed up on June 28 at the LDLC store in Paris, along with 19 other prize-winning overclockers. A total of twenty of France’s finest overclocking talents competed in ten teams of two: Marmott and Florian 76, JMax and Topalof, Foxhound and Brezodor, Boblemagnifique and Cydoo, Devil’s Tiger and Plut0n, Traxman and RemZeyR, Redtratamd and Nico21, Fran123 and Hyve, and Tigmich and Lordofwall.
