Fun and also pretty interesting. Many people are saying that overclocking is not interesting to 'normal' people because it's such an artificial sport, but we saw something different!

At this event, we explained the basics of X58 and GPU overclocking on air cooling to people who had 0 experience with the platform and afterwards we just let them play by themselves. Pretty impressive to see them push 990X to 4.8G on watercooling and try to max out the score, hehe.

Before they started playing with the setups, we ran a reference score in Vantage Entry (~ 86k iirc) and based on that score each of the eight participants made a guess on what would be the highest score they (not us!) would achieve on the 4 setups. When wrapping up the first part of the demo (the air cooling overclocking), all the participants gathered around the setups closely watching the FPS go up and down and actually being excited about the end result . Of course, they are excited because of the prizes, but still ... within a very small timeframe they were only focussed on FPS, performance and MHZ rather than the 24/7 gain by overclocking.

Yah im tellin ya alot more "power users" would dig overclocking if they could participate in something similar to this. Great job here!

Me and shamino always get some guy or guys to OC on ln2 (who have no oc experiences at all) at every single event we did in public and it was always positive.
When you see them "get it" its pretty cool
Tones ftw...

Do you really know how to use a ''warmer'' to not say hairdryer



This event seems to be pretty cool even more if you make everybody laugh

Nice event!
I like tones, it seems to be very similar to Jimm's where I work.

The good thing about bringing in new people is that they do not realize when you fail Massman ;-P

Hope you guys had fun and managed to bring more Belgian overclockers to the scene.
