All overclockers have their own way to bench, how does your favorite sub-zero benching rig looks like?

Dirty setup, full of Vaseline,old mouse and keyboard are the winners.

What do you think about Overclocking events?

Overclocking events are the best place to meet other Overclockers and learn more from them, secret oc is just shift means nothing to me or maybe it’s the name I don’t like. Big or small competitions are all great and fun.

I’m not sure about Switzerland overclocking because it’s small country and few overclockers live here, sometime we ocaholic make some to pass together a funny weekend.

Very expensive here was much better when I was in Italy.

We can buy the latest hardware in time but ln2 price is expensive compare to Germany or Italy.

How are computer enthusiasts and overclockers like you are seen in your country?

I heard we have a lot of gamers here not really xtreme overclockers but what we have are the best Christian Ney my memory overclockers guru and Splmann lucky cpu binner.

If you had to give an advice to a newby in OC, what would it be?

 Start this hobby it, don’t pass steps fast, it’s a hobby at least enjoy it.

Anything else you wish to share with us today?

Be cool and share whatever you learn to others.
