Los Angeles, California - November 6, 2008 - Bestofmedia Group announces the first Overdrive Overclocking Championship by Tom's Hardware, a worldwide overclocking competition to be held in the United States, Germany, Taiwan, France and Italy.
The contestants will compete to deliver ground breaking CPU and graphics performance by operating processors and graphic components at a higher clock rate than intended by the manufacturers. Liquid nitrogen will be deployed to provide the maximum possible cooling effect on the components.
Five teams of up to three people each per country compete in preliminary trials in November.
The winning team from each country will be flown to the finals to be held in Paris, France.
The contest features many perks and prizes for both participants and winners. The grand prize includes a $5,000 gift certificate to the online shopping site of the winning team's choice.
"For the preliminary trials, contestants will be using the Intel Core2 Duo Desktop Processor E8600 and for the finals, the next-generation microarchitecture from Intel® (code named "Nehalem")," said Patrick Schmid, Worldwide Editor-in-Chief of Tom's Hardware. "This will be one of the first worldwide overclocking contests where the Intel Core i7 processor, Extreme Edition, will be used."
The official sponsors of the Overdrive Overclocking Championship by Tom's Hardware are (MSI) Micro-Star International Corporation (TSEC: MSI, 2377), Kingston Technology Company, Samsung Electronics (KS: 005930), FSP Group and Logitech International (SIX: LOGN, NASDAQ: LOGI).
