Pro OC Season Sponsorship

And now the crispy part. ProOC is the league at HWBOT where the Pro guys belong. Being a pro implies to be benching as a team of (up to) five overclockers and focus on some of the most extreme stuff out there. To be in Pro OC implies an important budget for hardware, ln2 and time – an thus, for Pro’s support is essential.

For this editions of the Team Cup, Cooler Master is, on top of the other prizes, offering a one season sponsorship package to the winning team. This means that the team will have to make a Pro OC team, sign with CM and in exchange receive plenty of gear, and quite importantly a budget allocation for LN2, Team t-shirts, mouse, keyboards, PSU etc. Impressive!

Quite frankly I think this is clearly something we’ve been awaiting to see happen and the simple fact that half of the setup + LN2 is covered – will definitely be a huge motivation for some of the guys out there. It is now up to the clever teams to leverage the occasion and demonstrate what they can do as a professional organized team.

We are truly looking forward to it. Well done CM.
