Here are some achievements from 2016 we're excited to share with you. We partnered with GAME - a leading video game retailer - to offer gaming PCs, components, and accessories in stores across the UK. We have stands across stores in the UK including the Trafford Centre, supplying PCs and components in their Gaming Arena! PC Gaming is not something that was easily accessible on the high-street, so we've brought it back!
Along with this, we were also the first company in the UK to launch a dedicated room-scale virtual reality experience in the UK, allowing users to try virtual reality for free to experience a completely virtual enviroment with the HTC Vive VR headset and controllers. - We also sell the full equipment for users to buy, to install VR in their own space.
We have recently gone a step further by creating a virtual reality simulator competition for the public to enter for free, to have a chance of racing real sports cars at PalmerSport.
We build the most powerful and fastest consumer computers in the world. We launched the 8Pack OrionX in Taipei, at Computex, the largest computer and technology trade show in the world. The OrionX was displayed in Germany at Gamescom, the largest gaming convention in Europe, and in Las Vegas at CES, a global consumer electronics and technology tradeshow. The 8Pack OrionX is the world’s most powerful desktop PC available to consumers, reaching international press coverage, and is all built in Newcastle-under-Lyme at our HQ.
We are partnered with some of the largest technology companies in the world, for example AMD, Intel, Microsoft and NVIDIA, we aim to always be first to market with the latest technology, providing the largest range of products across our website.
Above all of this, we have one of the largest online communities in Europe, with over 130,000 forum members, this also extends through Facebook with 103,000 members and Twitter with 65,000 followers. We are not a faceless company, we socialise with our customers not just online, but also offline by attending events such as the largest gaming festival in the UK, the Insomnia Gaming Festival. Other UK events include MCM Comic Con, EGX, and more. This is the most important part of our company, as our community is like an extended family and really means a lot to us!
From everyone at Overclockers UK, we want to thank every single one of you all for supporting us throughout the years, it really means the world to us.
