    Show Notes

    In this episode Dennis talks about his attempt to host an Overclocking workshop at the BoiseLAN 4.0.  The workshop wasn’t intended to be a how-to but an informational session to explain the relationship of Voltage, Frequency and Temperature when it comes to overclocking.  The hardware he picked was something any gamer would have access to with some rather entertaining benchmarks to hold the interest of everyone at the LAN Party.

    The hardware included:
    Gigabyte Z170X SOC Force
    Intel Core i5 6600K
    GSKill TridentZ DDR4 Memory
    Western Digital Velociraptor
    NVidia GTX 770

    Beast Pot cooling container

    Thing is, despite all of the preparation Dennis put into making sure the workshop went off without a hitch there were issues with the motherboard and processor .  So while the workshop never happened there was 20 pounds of Dry Ice that had to be used and Devils Canyon came to the rescue.

    One again Hardware Asylum sponsored the BoiseLAN 4.0 with the addition of hardware to the giveaway pool including three amazing cases.
