PizzaMan and Kip69 from Overclock.net will be joining Trouffman and xyala via OCTV's live stream ABOUT MSI MASTER OVERCLOCKING ARENA "The MSI Master Overclocking Arena (MOA) is hallowed battleground for global overclocking masters. Every year MSI invites worldwide overclocking gurus, through on-line or on-site qualifications, for a high-tech showdown. Equipped with today's most powerful computers, each invited master challenges the limit of their equipment with their excellent overclocking technique, to win the honor of being crowned the worldwide overclocking master. These overclocking masters break world records under close watch of global media and fellow overclocking enthusiasts. MSI has achieved notable milestones in the field of extreme overclocking. Apart from the players-focused annual MOA contest, many other overclocking events are also hosted online or on-site to break worldwide overclocking records. The globally watched MOA competition has become the flagship of these overclocking competition series." Quoted from MSI's MOA site I'm here to say that this event is very much closely watched by most competitive overclocking teams, as we route for our top overclocking teammates who spend loads of time and money overclocking MSI motherboards and graphic cards in attempts to make it to the finals in Taiwan. Weather or not they are MSI fans, overclockers from around the world watch as their teammates take the year's top-end hardware to its limits. The event just seems to get better and better each year as MSI is dedicated to continuing to improve their products, and here is their gift to the overclocking community a stringent competition with awesome prizes throughout the qualifying rounds and free trips to the top overclockers in the world to the finals in Taipei Taiwan.
