OCC to Participate in the 12th Annual Build Your Own PC Race for Charity at CES!

Category: OCC News
Posted: 07:40PM

One of the hottest events at CES is the Build Your Own PC Race with the winner being awarded a $10,000 check to give to his/her favorite charity. This year OverclockersClub was one of only 30 groups invited to participate and our own ccokeman will be representing us. The race will take place on the first night of CES, January 8th. Pre-race festivities begin at 5:30PM Pacific Time with the race to begin at 7:00PM PST. This year's race will be broadcast and you will be able to watch it LIVE here on OCC!! We're working on getting the live stream set up and will post more details as soon as we can. Clear your calendars and join us in cheering ccokeman on as he competes in this worthwhile cause.

Congratulation to OCC's contestant, ccokeman, for an amazing 6th place finish this year with a very respectable time of 7:18!

Good luck!!! Do participants get the equipment, or do they bring their own I wonder?

The contest wouldn't be fair if everyone could choose the parts to put in.
