Today ASUS kicks off its first season of the 3x3 OC Summit* utilizing its line of ROG motherboards. The company invited several professional overclocking teams to start its season* and they're all familiar faces. The teams include:

Xtreme Systems
OC Alliance
Team Pure

Several members of each team* along with reps from Intel and Corsair convened in Santa Clara* CA* just several short minutes from Intel's headquarters. Motherboards from ASUS' Rampage and Maximus lines were used with Intel supplying a batch of Core i7 980X 6-core processors. OCZ supplied its line of Vertex SSDs for the competition and overall* there was more hardware than you could shake a stick at.

Liquid nitrogen is the preferred cooling medium for such an event* and there's no shortage of it here. ASUS supplied two huge tanks of it but we were told there's just enough of it not to start doing crazy things.
