First off, I would like to thank our Platinum Sponsors: Intel and Nvidia, our sponsors: Antec, Coolermaster, Corsair, CPU, Kingston, Patriot, and Razer for the hardware, along with HIWA, Capcom, Madcatz, and Logitech for the side support! I want to thank all of the overclockers and case modders for spending time and coming out to the event.:cool:

So here is a recap of the event! Our goal for this event was to have fun. Bench on any platform and benchmark you want. Setting your own goals was key. If you were able to break into the top 10 global records or #1 hardware record, you received a bonus prize! Case modders were ranked top 3 and the other 4 were raffled a box of goodies.;)

The layout and power draw was not my original design, :( but we worked around the problem and in the end, still had a very successful event.

Be sure to watch the Live stream recordings in the formula x thread: http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showthread.php?2456-ROG-FORMULA-X

Welcome to Formula X:

All of the vendors did an awesome job showing off their hottest products and tons of swag!

Capcom was kind enough to let us demo the new unreleased Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition, and Madcatz let us use their SF4 fight sticks! We also demoed Dirt3. We decided to allow users to play games when under extreme cooling. we were seeing about 180FPS on dirt 3 on a single GTX580 DC2.

14201430142714281432142514291433143714261441144214 35

We also had a race to build contest for users that can put together a system the quickest and a Bios workshop from JJ. We teach you how to overclock!
1424142214341436144014231439

The folks from Gigabyte decided to stop by and mingle with overclockers, case modders, and vendors. Don't mind if they need some inspiration from ASUS.

lastly, i would like to thank Logitech for supporting us with C910 cameras so that we can broadcast a live stream which can be viewed here: http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showthread.php?2456-ROG-FORMULA-X

Note - its laggy because we streamed off of one 4g mifi from spring and it sucks! need to clearly look for a faster connection next time around.

Nvidia was doing photos this way so that they could send people home with disposable 3D glasses and still appreciate the pictures later. I know that I had a pic taken at their Halloween party and the pictures weren't even posted until after the event.

I kind of get that, there is way to do 3d right and this not itif you go to the 3dvision live site you will see you can view the 3d in many ways including the cheap analyph glasses. their software on the site is pretty killer in what it does but you need a 3d tv or 3dvision kit to really appreciate it

My wife saw this case, and thought the mod should be called "Blowing Wind" or "Hot Gas"

I wonder if her wind smells like Cherries and sweat?

Awesome Pictures, thanks for posting them.. wish I knew about all these cool events before, so I could make plans to attend some of them.

By any chance does anyone have more images on this system?
