It’s been already quite some time that at HWBOT the news is out regarding the 2016 edition of the World Tour. For those of you who don’t know what it is, the HWBOT World Tour is simply the largest live overclocking event series in the world!
Again, for 2016, the HWBOT World Tour events will be featuring the three types of activities they are famous for. A Workshop where people can learn about overclocking, competitions for both amateur overclockers (those from the workshop) and extreme, and a bench party (aka. Gathering) which is about having fun overclocking together for extreme or less-extreme overclockers attending the event.
