It wouldn't be CES without some liquid nitrogen overclocking! GIGABYTE didn't disappoint; they had their own overclockers (HiCookie and Sofos) on site and also hosted HWBot's World Tour.
GIGABYTE's overclockers were using the new Z270X-Gaming SOC motherboard along with an NVIDIA Pascal-based GPU. Liquid nitrogen overclocking was done on both the CPU and memory to achieve world records.
On the other side of the rope, we found some independent and team-based overclockers aiming to defeat each other in one-on-one matches on the stage. Overclocker Joe Stepnoz beat Lucky_n00b by a slim margin to win the HWBot Overclocking World Tour Qualifier, gaining him a place at the finals in Taiwan.
Both Overclockers are veterans of many overclocking competitions, and no one knew who would win. Congrats Joe, we wish you the best at finals!
