TeamGB and MSI - Cambridge 2015

MSI OC Academy UK Tour


The event will take place in Cambridge from the 17th – 19th April 2015.

Image

Team GB Benching is all about promoting benching in the UK regardless of which HWBOT team you bench you will be welcomed at any Team GB event. The event is for the professional benchers; the not so experienced and the veterans; it is for the first timers who have never clocked hard before in fact this event is for everyone. But hurry there are limited tickets available.


There are only 20 tickets available.

Each ticket entitles the holder to entrance to the event.
All the Ln2 they can use.
Hotel accommodation for the Friday and Saturday nights.
All hardware will be provided, but you can bring your prized CPU or VGA to bench.
Entrance to the introduction to Ln2 and sub-zero benching course on the Saturday morning. Successful candidates will receive their level 1 certificate at the awards dinner.
A place at the Team GB Benching awards evening dinner, hosted by MSI. Sadly your drinks are for your own account.
Transport to and from the hotel and venue will be provided so there will be no need for any driving, you can just enjoy your weekend.
To secure your place please book ASAP at events@UKbenching.co.uk or hivizman@gmail.com
A booking fee of £10 is payable on booking via paypal hivizman@gmail.com. Please include your forum user name, full name, mobile contact number and a working email address if different from the one you use with paypal. This booking fee will be refunded if you are not successful in being allocated a ticket. All tickets are on a first come first serve basis.

What on at the meet and how do I watch it.
The event is going to be slightly different this time around. The weekend will be running two congruent streams. There will be organised event benching in teams and individual bench offs. Grab the opportunity to bench with the pro’s. That does not mean that free benchers who just want to bench their own hardware will be unwelcome, far from it. Get your ticket and you can bench in the manner that suites your mood. We would like all participants to get into the activities of course and have a bit of fun while benching up a storm, and participants will be eligible for some of the great prizes that are up for grab.


On offer to bench with will be MSI X99 systems with Intel® Core™ i7-5960X Processor under the hood, GSkill DDR4 3000MHz memory and a set of the awesome MSI Lightning’s that were only available to the Pro benchers. Now it is your turn to bench with the some of the best kit available. The Z97 platform is not being neglected and Intel were kind enough to send us 10 samples to play with, again GSkill are the memory providers.

OCTV and OCN are partnering up to deliver the best possible viewing experience with more than 8 camera’s and a dedicated commentary team providing insight to the action. Ask your favourite bencher those difficult and embarrassing questions during the interview slots. The stream will be available on HWBOT and OCN check the forums for more information closer to the time.


Team GB Benching have arranged a pretty exciting itinerary that will push the competitors ability and skills to the limits, while you the viewer get to call the shots. Decide what bench the teams have to do in the different rounds of the competition, the viewers will get to set targets for the benchers to achieve.


Think you know your benching? Well predict the winning score or winning time and win a prize. Select the correct round winner and you stand a chance to win. Get the correct winner of each round and walk away with the accumulator prize at the end of the day. Plus there will be a winner for the correct prediction of the overall weekend champion too.


Every viewer who participates will be eligible for the random prize draws that will be sponsored by our wonderful partners. But that is not all, this year the viewers are going to have a say in who gets a wild card entry to the singles knockout cup and pick the teams for the final bench off.


Stay tuned to see who all will be attending the event, there are four media representatives who will be getting cold in Cambridge and there are some special guests from overseas joining in the fun too. Maybe, just maybe a four way VGA world record or two will be broken live at the meet. Are you going to be there?

The Team GB Events Team


Tickets will be available from Tuesday 9am UCT

Confirmed Gav ;)


I will be sending out a small questionnaire to each successful ticket holder. Please fill it in and return to me ASAP. We will be using that information to embarrass you on live steam. :mrgreen: I would also like to have a 1 minute video (assuming we all have a cam on our systems or can get to one) that may be used during the event to introduce you during the different activities. This is a bit of fun for sure but it also has a more serious side to it. There are going to be heaps of vendor representatives at the meet and they will get to know you and you will get to know them. Plus some guests from over seas too. 8-) So get into the swing of things and you will have a blast.

Busy toying with the idea to make Saturday a fancy dress day, Romans and Gladiators being the preferred theme = you guys up for that?

The wife had a growth on her ear the doctor used a LN2 gas which froze it and it fell off, so I wouldn't want any even near my helmet I'd like to think there is still some use left in it. :mrgreen:

Although I have a huge tummy and a bucket full on there would come in handy.

The awards dinner is at the Boathouse. Normally there is no set eating rule but based on other meets we tend to stick at the venue after the benching have a few pints eat a meal and then wander off home later. Certainly the first night, Friday night, the guys like to catchup and meet the new faces. So in essence there are two nights yes.
