8 Teams Battle for over $20K in Prizes in In Win Competition

Jun 23, 2016 Written by:ROG Article

You probably already know In Win by their innovative PC cases and cases which don't look like cases. From May 27th to 29th of May, 2016, 16 modders from seven countries flew to Taiwan to participate in In Win's first case modding competition to celebrate their 30th Anniversary. The modders teamed up to form eight teams, and in their sights were prizes worth over US$20,000 including ROG gear!

Winning wasn't going to be easy when they only had 24 hours (over three days) to work their masterpieces. The time restriction was balanced out a little as they had at their disposal professional grade equipment to work with. The teams can choose a theme (medieval, spaceship and military), a matching motherboard from either ASUS, Strix, ROG or TUF. Strix GTX 980 graphics cards were also supplied.

Let's meet the teams, modders and their wicked creations:
