MSI European Overclocking Challenge 2008 Coverage


After an exciting weekend of benching, it was finally time to announce the results and the crowd gathered at the area surrounding the stage to witness the Grand Jury's decision. The teams were called up, starting with number 20 and building up to the number one spot.
Greece took a well deserved first place - followed by the lads from Turkey, and then France. Below you can see the top three on the stage as they were called up during the final presentation to accept their plaques.
Greece #1 Turkey #2
France #3
And of course, the all important result, the UK team managed an extremely good 6th place overall. Considering the talent that was present at the event this was no mean feat, so congratulations go out to Martin and Rich for their outstanding performance.
UK #6
Here we see the scores table:
Overall the event was a massive success. All who took part seemed to enjoy themselves and everyone got along without a hitch. Although the spirit of competition was there, the community spirit was more prominent in the venue, with people helping each other out whether it being just a few pointers or lending each other equipment.
Hats off too the MSI team for putting on such a fantastic event and congratulations to all who took part to make this one memorable weekend.

Great coverage, great article.

Some excellent results in that table, gotta be semi-awkward when ur not in ur "home" setup with the usual stuff at hand. That aside, 6th is tremendous looking at the competitions` results also.

Good read.Quote
