Although MSI MOA 2011 is very competative, the amount of respect the overclockers have for each other is evident throughout the event, with teams sharing overclocking tools, laughs and even in some cases advice. The participants are truly professionals in this field and it showed from the start of the event right through to the awards ceremony. Splave and Romdominance will represent the America’s at the MSI Master overclocking Arena 2011 Worldwide final and that was truly earned today.
