Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

Figured I might as well kick off this thread early. Computex is going to be insanely interesting for overclockers as Haswell will be launch during the show. There will be plenty of overclocking demonstrations and events, some of which might or might not already have been confirmed.

 

ORGANISATIONAL INFORMATION

 

REGISTRATION

 

Registration is now open. This is the English site: https://computex.leadexpo.com/EN-index.html

 

CALENDER OF EVENTS AND ARRIVALS

 

If you are attending Computex, feel free to post your arrival and departure times in the thread. Maybe you can find someone to drive to town with. Also, you can import this into your smartphone and have the overclocking events with you all the time!

TAIPEI HWBOT EASYCARDS

 

We've prepared a couple of HWBOT Easycards for people who are attending Computex. You can use these to travel back and forth with the MRT (metro) or even to pay in 7/11 grocery stores. Let me know if you want one and if need be I'll have more made.

 

- 9/18 remaining

HARDWARE RELEASES

OVERCLOCKING EVENTS

 

Most of the events are still in planning, but as far as I know there will are now 10(!) different shows/events/gatherings planned. Working hard to get them somewhat aligned so you guys won't have to choose; luckily the marketing people are all the vendors are really eager to make this computex an OC blast! :D

I'm currently looking into the possibility of organizing a small bench week or weekend after computex as well. The idea is similar to what we had in mind last year (but didn't go through): rent a beach house ~ 1h from the city, get loads of LN2, some hardware and bench/party throughout the week. Anyone interested in this? If yes, would you stay longer?

 

If there is enough interest, I think we can start planning from March or so.

I'm considering but the flight is at least 600-700 € and that's without hotel any anything else :D If I got the money in that time I'll come over tho.

If you're going, guys, consider extending your trip one week after Computex. The tradeshow is usually pretty busy and if you're anything like me, you'll be sticking around the OC booths at the venue most of the time. Not so much time for sight-seeing or so.

I can afford it, but at $1500-2000 I would rather keep the money and remain:

I might be there as well.

The problem for me is that I don't know if someone else from my country will come and I'm afraid that it will be a boring 25 hour trip.

 

If you have any info on the hotels please post it.

Just send out a couple of emails to check for the accomodation and stuff. I'm leaving on a trip on February 6 'till the 19th, so ... around March latest.

 

Too late?
