Hardware Asylum podcast from Computex OC gathering

Have you guys heard of Hardware Asylum? They have a pretty interesting podcast that covers overclocking and tech in general. Check out the episode from Taipei during Computex 2014

Show Notes

Dennis has been attending Computex since 2003 and has watched the show slowly morph into something a little strange.  Not only has the show become more commercial but many vendors have gone to great lengths to attract visitors to their booth.  Sometimes this effort makes moments memorable and other times, not so much.  One of the hot topics at Computex 2014 is live overclocking including three professional competitions and at least six other independent overclocking demonstrations.

To help talking about the overclocking scene during Computex Dennis pulled in two special guests, Massman from HWBOT and Trouffman from Overclocking TV.

Flashback Friday, TeamAU on ABC Good Game TV program talking about overclocking

Back in 2007 TeamAU attended ABC Good Game studios to record a series of overclocking related programs. Dinos22 covered watercooling, Kayl covered phase change cooling and SLI_Dog covered subzero cooling.

We also tried to break some records in the last episode. It was an Australia frequency record as global frequency way out of reach for such a short amount of time we had.

Here are all 4 episodes for you to check out!

Flashback Friday, GOOC 2009 with deanzo and dinos22

After our first taste of a major global OC competition, deanzo & dinos22 made it out of the Australian qualifying rounds as the top 2 overclockers. Regional was held in Thailand and what a great experience that was! We ended up winning the regional. It was a pretty once sided affair but we did slip up on a bonus stage where Nick Shih grabbed the bonus prize.

Anyway, we were through to yet another global final and faced off against a smaller group of OCers compared to 2008. The comp was a controversial one where Fugger and Vapor were suspected of using mipmap tweak (which was never allowed in any contest nor HWBOT) in their 3D stage after everyone analysed their GPU/CPU clock frequencies and frames but it was already too late to do anything about it so it remained unquestioned.
