    HWBOT Team Cup 2016: Compete with the AMD Red team and globally!


      As HWBOT like to put it, "It’s that time of year again when overclocking teams on HWBOT start eyeing the the HWBOT Team Cup, the ultimate prize in team-oriented overlocking. It’s a contest that pits dozens of teams of overclockers against each other with a total of thirty stages that covers virtually every hardware category imaginable."

      (link to the competition here: OC eSports- Hwbot Team cup 2016  )

      So, how can you compete? It's simple enough, you benchmark your system and tweak it to the max to get the best score(after you make a Hwbot account, of course)! If you have never heard of Hwbot before, this is the AMD Red Team's profile: AMD Red Team @ HWBOT, and you can check out this thread to learn more about how to submit scores correctly: A guide for submitting results on Hwbot.org!  and once you have joined the Hwbot team, you can post here to let everyone know!

      So as you can see, there is many different ways to compete, and with a variety of hardware. The competition opens July 1st, and ends in September, so you can help the Red Team on Hwbot over that whole time by overclocking and competing for the best scores possible from your hardware! Hope to see you there!
