This week this turn our attention to a day back in February 2014 when enthusiast PC media Hardware Asylum sat down for a chat with former-HWBOT Director Pieter-Jan Plaisier, better known to many of us as Massman. The interview with Dennis Garcia makes for an interesting listen, covering Pieter’s first experiences of overclocking (using an AMD Athlon XP 2600+ Barton Core btw) and the aspirations and direction that HWBOT were pursuing at that time. Here are the show notes:
Pieter-Jan Plaisier, better known as Massman, is one of the public faces of HWBot.org and wears many hats around the community. His public persona centers on making sure the site is operating correctly on a daily basis and consults with the owner on what direction the site "should" take and where their focus needs to be. If that wasn’t enough Pieter also operates as a chief consultant for live overclocking competitions. This is in an attempt to make each live competition better that the previous.
In this interview we talk with Pieter about his start into overclocking and you might be surprised to know that it wasn't to increase gaming performance but rather to be faster than the other guy. Yes, that’s right, Massman was a competitive overclocker from the start and that dedication shows in what he has done for HWBot.
