Default Computex 2013: Who Is Going? These are the OC events!



Hey all,

Figured I might as well kick off this thread early. Computex is going to be insanely interesting for overclockers as Haswell will be launch during the show. There will be plenty of overclocking demonstrations and events, some of which might or might not already have been confirmed.

ORGANISATIONAL INFORMATION

REGISTRATION

Registration is now open. This is the English site: https://computex.leadexpo.com/EN-index.html

CALENDER OF EVENTS AND ARRIVALS

If you are attending Computex, feel free to post your arrival and departure times in the thread. Maybe you can find someone to drive to town with. Also, you can import this into your smartphone and have the overclocking events with you all the time!



TAIPEI HWBOT EASYCARDS

We've prepared a couple of HWBOT Easycards for people who are attending Computex. You can use these to travel back and forth with the MRT (metro) or even to pay in 7/11 grocery stores. Let me know if you want one and if need be I'll have more made.

- 9/18 remaining



OVERCLOCKING STUFF INFORMATION

HARDWARE RELEASES

- Intel Haswell Z87 platform
- AMD Richland APUs
- Nvidia GeForce GTX 780

OVERCLOCKING EVENTS

Most of the events are still in planning, but as far as I know there will are now 10(!) different shows/events/gatherings planned. Working hard to get them somewhat aligned so you guys won't have to choose; luckily the marketing people are all the vendors are really eager to make this computex an OC blast!

(ps: if you're coming, please mention it in the thread so I can forward the info to all the folks in charge of organising the events. Just so they know how much people to expect )

I'm currently looking into the possibility of organizing a small bench week or weekend after computex as well. The idea is similar to what we had in mind last year (but didn't go through): rent a beach house ~ 1h from the city, get loads of LN2, some hardware and bench/party throughout the week. Anyone interested in this? If yes, would you stay longer?

If there is enough interest, I think we can start planning from March or so.

I'm considering but the flight is at least 600-700 € and that's without hotel any anything else If I got the money in that time I'll come over tho.

Oh, do you have a blueprint of EOC? Could come in handy for the beach-plan thing!

If you're going, guys, consider extending your trip one week after Computex. The tradeshow is usually pretty busy and if you're anything like me, you'll be sticking around the OC booths at the venue most of the time. Not so much time for sight-seeing or so.

I have no world records, but I have some GOLD MEDALS.

Titan has nothing to offer that is worth the price.
