Day 2, we will have bonus prizes for any records that are broken.

Invited case modders get to display their rig in front of thousands of spectators. ASUS and CPU magazine will judge these cases and rank them from #1-#7. All case modders will be in a hardware raffle for CPU, motherboard, graphic card, PSU, keyboard, mice, and case fans.

Would of been sweeter if you could of done it at the Fry's in Renton WA ... LoL ... Looks like a good time. I can overclock a little but nowhere near the caliber of the top overclockers out there. I'm currently running my 2600K @ 5.0 GHZ 24/7 and my memory is running @ DDR3-2133 7-9-7-24 1T 24/7 and its super stable... Anyways be sure to post up some pics of the event for those of us that can't make it.

Sounds like a great event, I'd definitely be interested in attending :)

As far as experience with Asus products goes, I've spent a ton of time with the RIIIE, MIVE, CIVF and the 580 CUII. Many of my top scores at the moment use asus hardware.

As for as why I'm a top 20 overclocker, I am currently ranked 15th worldwide on HWbot and have been as high as 6th in the past. Additionally, I'm currently ranked 2nd in the US on HWbot. In the relatively short time I've been overclocking competitively I've held single card WRs in 3DMark 05 and 06 as well as both 4 core wPrime records. Finally, I finished 4th at the GOOC NA regional finals last year.

If you don't get 20 off this list before you get to me, put my name in the hat.

As for experience, I've been benching on the RIIIGene and the MIIIGene (really impressed by these little boards), and just recently started freezing a 580.

hi my name is kikicoco1334 from overclockaholics i am semi new to the overclocking world i have had somewhat decent amount of experience with LN2 as well as DICE, mostly LN2
i love to learn and trying out different hardwares, explorer different ways of overclocking, i been using asus hardware many years, have a decently good idea of them over the last few years i have been playing with all the x58 based boards other than both the rampage gene and rampage iii extreme boards i pretty much have had them all

if its passable i'd like to take this opportunity to learn more about overclocking and making new friends

(just real quick question... is the air tickets covered or is that on my own?)
here is a little list of what i got

I'm interested in coming for the weekend. It's only 100 miles from my doorstep and I'd be happy to switch call with a colleague and drive over there in exchange for the opportunity to buy an ASUS OC panel from you, Brian.

ROG boards? I've owned 2 Commandos, 2 REX's, a M3F, 2 R3E's, and I currently have an unopened MIVE sitting in the garage waiting until I have time to bin some 2600K's.

Why I might be considered a top 20 North American overclocker? I've had a few global WR's. I've been one of the top 20 North American overclockers on HWBot for the last year. I bench 5 pots simultaneously with LN2 - alone. I designed, and actually use, my own CPU LN2 pot. I'm one of 6 overclockers representing the Americas in Taipei at MOA this Autumn.

I've had experience with the X48 Rampage Extreme, X58 RIIIE, X58 RF and the P67 MIVE. I've currently slipped out of the top 20 but am working on a few things to remedy that. ;)

Ok.. Here is my official submission for ROG Formula X Case Mod Competition. Good luck to all the participants:

TiTON's Asus ROG V2 Case Mod:

Link to WorkLog:

http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showthread.php?817-TiTON-s-ROG-Case-Mod-Work-Log

Description:

This is a mini LAN machine for the die hard PC Enthusisast. PC Enthusiasts are proud of the hardware in their system, they spend countless hours reasearching and hand picking parts to go into their rig. Instead of hiding the parts in a beige tower, the components are proudly put on display in this case mod. ASUS ROG make parts that the Case Modders and Overclockers need for high performance and looks. With the case mod, the user can easily upgrade and swap our parts without having to open up a side panel. The small formfactor allows the case to be displayed on a table top, versus hiding under a desk.

Specification:

Mobo: Asus Maximus III Gene
GPU: ASUS GTX560
CPU: Intel i3 550
Memory: 8GB Corsair Dominator GT
HD: 64GB SSD
Power: Silverstone 430 Watt SFX PSU

I guess that I am suppose to tell you all who I am... some of the old timers in modding probably remember me. I have been feature in magazines, written a few articles for CPU mag, We have done two workshop on modding for Nvidia (one at Nvision and one at quakecon) and hopefully inspired some new modders out there! Modders-Inc.com is my home and site so come by, say hello and stay awhile.

This mod was made for staff vs staff event that allowed us to ONLY spend $150 to do the modding and no outsourcing stuff to be made for the case. The modders had to do all their own work :-)

http://i1008.photobucket.com/albums/af205/pcjunkie209/Blue%20Devil/BD%20asus/DSC04824.jpg

A little about my mod. I wanted something out of the norm, that would be the reason I chose carbon fiber/kevlar mix for my panels. I also chose a completely different layout for hardware and mass airflow for when I game on this machine. I was inspired by a fellow ROG member to give carbon fiber a whirl. this was my first attempt at carbon fiber and overall I am pleased with the outcome. total time spent on this mod is in the 500+ hour ballpark. so i am glad its done so now I can start a new mod. :)

I think it would be more beneficial to group the chips with the boards they coincide with but thats your call :cool: .

there are only 2 crosshair v boards. you can trade it with someone during the event, or save the board and use it when you get home. i know at least 3-4 people that want the amd board so im sure they wouldnt mind trading it. we will have NO amd chips being given away since intel is the platinum cpu sponsor.

trust me itll work out. 2 crosshair boards are going to be paired with intel cpus either way. we dont have amd cpus to pair and we wont either way. frys is 20 ft away if you want to get a cpu, but there are a few select amd guys that will want to bench and bring their own gear. this is why i said bring your own gear.

Here's my entry for the case mod contest;
It's called "Red Dwarf" due to the ROG color scheme (Red/Black) and its compact/efficient design.
By cutting out the larger "fat" features of current case designs (optical drive bays, 3.5" hard drives, tower-style HSF),
I shrunk the size of the system down by only fitting what I see as performance-essential modern core components:
uATX motherboard and CPU, full-size ATX power supply, can fit 13.25" video card, 2.5" SSD, 2x 240mm watercooling radiators.
For reference, the outside of the case is only about 1" taller than an ATX motherboard's longest dimension...

See build-log here: Project-Red-Dwarf (http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showthread.php?127-Project-Red-Dwarf-Sponsored-by-ASUS)

Its got a mATX ASUS Maximus III Gene motherboard, Intel i7-860 @ 4.x Ghz, 4GB DDR3-2200, HD5870 GPU, internally watercooled with 2x 240mm radiators, CPU and GPU blocks by Swiftech, Antec 850W PSU and 256GB SSD.
Internal red LED lighting intensity varies based on CPU load temperature, driven from PWM signal of the Maximus III Gene motherboard.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-RDmmeUYIJJs/TMcCzF_OqNI/AAAAAAAABpk/SLlh9T6_jKY/s800/CIMG6934.JPG

Oh, and you can also switch between mini-tower (vertical) style and desktop (horizontal) computer without modification,
the water cooling components are laid out to accomodate this.
You can even switch on-the-fly/while it's running, although that makes me kind of nervous and there's not much point to switch it while running...

We are able to trade amongst ourselves or pool hardware with a partner to get a benching platform together. So if you get a CVF maybe Rom will end up with a MIVE so you can work together.

cool lookin case there man!

not so sure on the color choice though :p

side panel is by far the best part of the entire thing as well

Thanks guys. The colors are for the theme, a drifter car style. Is was for a staff vs staff mod off we did at the site and one of the rules was that you could NOT spend more than $150 to mod it :-)

I did a few runs today as I prep for the weekend. Thought I share a couple pics and results. Nothing too fancy, REX 3 980X GTX 570's and MIVE 2600K GTX 470's. 2600K is a few days old and turned out to be worst chip I own. Max multi 53 :o.

Hope you guys talk to us near the end, cause I wokeup I guess a few hours before it ended and no one was in chat :(, Also brian, have someone Overclock down there using the asus auto tune, Ive had a good amount of views in my post about it, and how to easy get 4.4 (wont go higher myself atm due to voltages requiring alot) but Id love to see someone actually use Asus's software to do this, Id do it myself it you "wink wink" Sponsor me a mobo and cpu seriously. I want Asus Program to also overclock and not the mobo cause why else do you have a program to overclock straight from windows. Everyone still does it in bios instead of taking advantage of the program wich I want to do!!!! But btw it looks like it turned out great for the first day. Glad I watched the few hours I was able to cause I wakeup late.

Hah Id love to, but i have nothing to work for. Also the best I am at overclocking, is with the asus software. Wich no one else does as far as I know, they still use bios. Id go past 4400mhz on my 2600k, but yea... I need this to last 3+years with no problems. Anything past 4400 mhz makes me have to go from 1.320v to 4500mhz needing 1.43v+ just because I got one of the chips that require high voltage cause intel cant make everything the same :( but then again who can.

Dude do have to ***** about everything? Look u say u have nothing to work towards if u oc, well why don't u ask some of the pros here what they work for. I know for a fact that most oc'ers do it because someone said it can't be done and it's fun.

@ the sponsers- I want to thank Brian and staff for a great event. Also want to thank Asus, CoolerMaster, Kingston, Patriot, Antec, Razer, Intel and special thanks to CPU magazine for picking my mod for the cover of the magazine.

Them are nice earnings yes I agree you bust ur ass off, but dont assume that I never tried to do ****, I blew over 1200$ when I made my first rig trying to do the same as you because i was new at overclocking. I was working with 3x Q6600 G0 Stepping cpu's while using the asus p5n-d and had Terrible results blowing out two till i said im not touching this again with the 3rd one. On top of that I tried case modding as in the case its self just doing some paintjob, and had crap luck with that because I am not a artist, and everything I did was terrible looking and just threw out after i seen the after math trying to fix it to where the screws were tightened and untightened so much that they were stripped and from my frustration i often kick things and well I kicked the crap out of the cases.

Im not talented
Im not smart
Im not a artist
But for one thing, I sure the hell do appreciate what everyone else can accomplish and not once will I say man thats weak I can do better, Ill never say that because I cant, I praise always, and no Im not saying you said any of this.

But congrats guys looks like asus wont have a problem ranking up now with these winnings from everyone. Can someone say people need 500k for extreme bracket a ticket?! haha.

also im not being a dick im just saying it how it is everyone here should know by now I fail at trying to word things so I just said screw it on this post and just typed it how it is literitally haha
