The current top 5 on HWBot

Those of you who follow competitive overclocking on the site HWBot, will know that Overclocking Legend K|ngp|n from the USA has led the pack for many months now, managing to stay miles ahead of his closest rivals, hipro5 and SF3D.

Back in early June of this year, two Taiwanese overclockers, AndreYang and the ever controversial OnePageBook stormed the HWBot rankings, both reaching spots in the top 10 in a matter of days, and since then the World Overclocking community has been abuzz with news. OnePageBook, a previous world number one, who recently had a submission ban reversed, was caught cheating for the second time, and so was issued with a lifetime ban. After this drama subsided, the community was hit by more startling news, some of the best overclockers in the world were joining together to form a new team, PURE. With members including K|ngp|n and AndreYang, PURE quickly shot up to be the second ranked team in the world, blazing past Team OCX(a previous world number 1), and threatening first placed H.O.T, lead by hipro5. Since then, hipro5 has upped his game, coming to within 100 points of K|ngp|n, and constantly trading blows with AndreYang for second place.

It seemed as though after all this drama, the HWBot overclocking league could hold no more surprises, until today. With golden cups for world records in single and dual graphics card categories of Aquamark 3, AndreYang shot to 1598 points, 28.8 clear of K|ngp|n, becoming world number 1 in the process. Only time will tell how long he manages to stay at the top, but nevertheless, AndreYang has joined an elite group of overclockers who can proudly call themselves the best in the world.
