This contest is now over. Stay tuned for the next event!

Are you guys ready for the ROG Experience Tour Round 2?!
Please read rules carefully! Full details here! (http://www.asusrog.com/rog%20experience%20round%202.html)


Online Tournament Outline:
The purpose of this tournament is to see who can find the perfect balance between function and form in their ROG build! A true case modder and overclocker can adapt to any environment when needed. The competing teams must structure a system that can perform at its optimal performance, weigh as little as possible, and look sleek.

There are 3 brackets to achieve points:
Performance (1000 points) - Weight(1000 points) - Style(500 points).
These will be judged by ASUS based on fastest SuperPi benchmark score, lightest system, and the overall design. Teams must follow the online tournament rules to be eligible. The top 2 teams with the highest score will advance to round 2 finals at Blizzcon 2010 where they will compete for the grand prize!

Teams will use SuperPi 1m as the benchmark tool to achieve the fastest SuperPi 1m time. Team must also weigh their system on a digital scale with a photo proof or analog scale with video proof. Don’t think about cheating because the top 2 winning teams will have to send in their machines to ASUS and get weighed in to be sure that the weight is the same as what was posted in their submission along with SuperPi Submission. ASUS must be able to run the benchmark without any hacks or mods. If a Team’s weight is off by more than .1 lbs (1.6oz) the team will be disqualified and the top spot will be given to the runner up.

YOU ARE LIMITED TO AIR OR WATER COOLING OF YOUR CHOICE!

Please read the details on the contest page to be sure you submit your entries properly

Hey PCJunkie,

Great submission man. I got my work cut out for me. Your rig definietly got style and weight. It is the #1 rig right now :)

Did you build that yourself? When I first saw it.. thought it was a Danger Den torture rack.. then as you roated, it seem to be a custom build.

Can't wait to see your spi score.

- Ton

I see you have the ROG logo in front.. is that an etching, or glitter vinyl sticker? Either way, its a nice touch

I built this case from scratch. Lots of cutting on my scroll saw...lol. As for the ROG emblem it is a vinyl sticker and you'll see some more of them, I made some for my F&G project also. And thanks for the compliments.

I don't have a TOP NOTCH PC, It's not the best, but it can still play Crysis max graphs
It's a very basic case, cost me 20, But I'm gonna spend a nice 70 on a Thermaltake soon enough
Its and Asus Commando ROG, with in Intel Pentium E6300 2.83Ghz Overclocked to 3.20Ghz Runs nicely at 50C with only ONE case fan.
And a Nvidia GeForce 9800GT 1GB

Sorry about the lighting... Really bad Energy Saving bulbs _ I'll replace them soon

Hey Folks,

Here is my entry:

Pictures of Mods for "Style" Bracket:

Mod Concept:
For this project, I wanted to follow the theme of the contest "Fast", "Lightweight", and "Sytlish". Instead of going with a traditional case, I wanted to build a modified test bench. I have enjoyed my Danger Den Torture Rack for a while, and used that as inspiration.

"Fast"
The performance for this round is based off SuperPi 1m. So I went with the Asus Maximum Gene III for the small size, with an Intel i3 550 and Corsair Domintator GTX. SuperPi is a single core bench, so going with a dual core reduced the amount of heat that would be generated. For cooling, Corsair's Hydro did an awesome job with minimum weight being added. For power, the silverstone ST455SF 450w SFX PSU was used. Alot of power in a small package. For storage, Corsair SSD was used for performance and weight.

"Lightweight"

To save on weight, I went with a "Ribbed" approach. The outside ribs are made form smoke acrylic, while the inside ribs are sanded oak plywood. This shaved off alot weight, but still gave it the necessary strenght to support the benching rig and allow for transport.

"Stylish"
Since this is an Asus Case Mod compeition, the designed was based off their ASUS ROG Logo. From the side, you can see the ROG symbol, outlined in black. The mother board is mounted at an angle to show off the great gear being benched. As for the color combination, black and red was carried through the entire theme.

The ending result is you have small stylish lightweight PC that is lighting fast.

Below are the specs and pictures of the case mod.

Specs:
Motherboard: Asus Maximum Gene II
Processor: Intel i3 550
Memory: 4GB Corsair Dominator GT w/ AirFlow Bracket
Cooling: Corsair Hydro 70
Graphics: Asus EAH4350 Silent
Power Supply: Silverstone SF
Storage: 64GB CorsairExtreme Series SSD

WOW!! That is sweet!

Quik question does that case have five physical sides??

yeah.. front, back, left, right and bottom. The top is open.

In essence, its a box in the shape of the ROG made from ribs.

But what qualify as a side? How can we determine what is a "side". It it based on the number of right angles? For sure my case isn't a ball or triangle (well.. a pryamid would have 5 sides). I can lay it on each of the 5 sides, and nothing will fall out. If I lay it on the Top side down, the mobo will come out. Well.. modding is an aspect of the contest.. so i guess its based on the interpretation of the rules by the judges.

Thinking about it.. its more of a trapazoid.

Maybe Brian can confirm.

Brian@ASUS
10-08-2010, 02:26 AM
it is 5 sides, what we dont want is to have a flat open test bench. initially the system should go into a case and we are allowing the side panel to be removed. but in the view of a case mod, we see five sides with vents. as long as there is structure there. for example a dangerden torture rack would not qualify unless you added a 5th side to it. again ANY material can be used. holes can be cut for ventilation, but at the same time remember that style points will go into factor. nice case ton i will review this with the asus team to see its ranks.

10-08-2010, 03:48 AM
again Ton don't get me wrong your case is far better looking than mine...............

but let me quote from the rules page-

Weight rules:
•Participant must create a case to support the entire ROG system (excludes keyboard, mouse, LCD, power cable)
•Custom cases are welcome.
***HERE** •Participant must have 5 sides to the case (you may have 1 side open)...............OPEN is the key word here!!
********* •Case must be able to support the entire system including cooling unit when picked up and or standing on the scale.
•User must have a digital scale with photo or analog scale with video. Must record in ounces or pounds.

so my veiw of a case is something you can totally enclose. and a side is a solid piece minus vents and fan cutouts and such not something you can stick your hand through...... and as for it being structually sound or be able to support the entire system......... well he has admitted that it will which it looks like it will, until you invert it then ....lol... bye bye mobo! so how is that supposting the whole system if the mobo won't stay in???????????????

anyways not trying to be a D..K but the way i read the rules is what i based my build from, so if his case gets high style points( which its GOT style!) then i am speaking for everyone here there should be a deadline extension to make adjustments.

Team CHABU - Utnorris and Beifei

Actually, Brian specifically stated that a case like the Danger Den Torture rack could not be used and this is very similar, however Brian said it was good to go. I do understand what you are saying though as I have the same concern, but it does look pretty sweet. I guess I will post my team pics now. The weight will be done officially tomorrow and we have to rerun our benches because we didn't use realtemp but coretemp, old habits die hard. Anyway, here they are:

hey guys i just wanted to clarify on the rules. a "normal computer case" has 6 sides. (front rear, top bottom, side side) what we require is that you have to have at least 5 sides to the system. for example dangerden's torture rack is 4 sided. if you add a 5th side, it would be acceptable. now i know it may seem a bit tricky BUT people are free to put in as many vents as they choose. in the case of titon's submission, it does have 5 sides but it got a lot of vents built into it. everyone is free to make their own unique grills but remember style points do go into it. if you want to cut out a bunch of fan holes, thats possible, but it may or may not look ugly depending on your unique setup.

we have to be able to carry the system into the show and the case must be able to sit on the scale to get weighted. it basically cant fall apart, we will not flip it around to see if it comes loose.

in the interest of being fair to everyone, i have always been open to answering any questions regarding any rules. whether something is allowed or not, so i will not extend it. hope no feeling are hurt. if there are ANNNNNNNNY questions to ANYTHING please ask me! and ask publicly please. REMEMBER 12PM NOON PACIFIC STANDARD TIME

BE STRATEGIC! if you want to risk style points for weight, you can use foam or cardboard or any light material to make 5 sides. every decision you make is going to be a risk because you will not know who will do what and who is sanding bagging what.

The way I look at it, titon's case is more like a framing of a house that isn't completely built yet.
The rules state that the house needs to be completely finished with drywall, minus the roof, meaning you must have 5 closed surfaces and 1 open.
His case has open structural framing exposed with open gaps in between, big enough to stick your hand through. This cannot be considered a closed surface by any means. I could reach my hand in and disconnect the SSD and pull it out without ever removing any sort of panels. Is that considered "closed"?
Would a house without drywall be considered enclosed? No way, it is an open air structure consisting of framing. Just putting up framing doesn't make it closed, drywall does.
Would a skyscraper without windows be considered to be enclosed? No.
Would a car without body panels be considered enclosed? I don't think so, his case is basically an exposed roll cage with 2 doors.
My interpretation of the rules was that the 5 surfaces must be attempted to be closed by some means. Otherwise, if it is left bare, it is considered OPEN because there are sizable gaps in the structure.
A surface is either open or closed, there is no in between, completely digital. There is no possible way you can consider a surface, with openings, to be a closed surface. We can make exceptions for vents, but those are by no means vents for air. Vents are something you cut in the covering to release or bring in air like on the hood of a car. If the car has no hood, would you consider the giant opening a vent?
From what I'm seeing, 3 surfaces have no covering whatsoever, just exposed structural ribs.
If this were a race car trying to pass inspection, I think it would be a bit tough to try and convince the inspectors that just 2 doors and a roll cage are enough to be considered finished and safe to pass inspection. A missing floorpan, front and rear bumper would probably fail inspection, as is the case here. Surely the DMV wouldn't allow it. They'll allow convertibles on the road, but I don't think they allow bare frames on the road, a little bit of a difference between the two.
By all means, it is the best case here, but does it follow the rules, no. Could it be modified to follow the rules, yes. Putting panels on the front, back and bottom would enclose the case properly.
On a contest where ounces are crucial, allowing this case to slip through would be a mistake because we built our case on the belief that 5 of the surfaces must be sealed in some fashion, as did others. We were under the impression, closed meant sealed, not gaps you can put your hands through to touch components. In my mind, that is "open". If I can grab the PSU and move it around with my hands, I'd say it's open.

if you and your partner are a team and going to blizzcon together with THAT system and if he already submitted to HWBOT, i would have him post it on here and put you as his partner. just to be safe. remember the system you weight and post pics with must be the system you bench with as well.

pcjunkie,

Thanks for the compliment.. Actually when I said the motherboard would fall out, i was just kidding. (sorry.. didn't make it to seem serious in the original post)

The motherboard is sitting on a custom motherboard tray, which is attached to the case. The case can be fliped upaside down, and nothing woudl fall out. Last thing I want it to do is have the mobo flip out, and some how disconnect the tubing. Sorry for the confusion.

Call the ribs whatever you want, but they aren't vents.
Tear the body panels off your car and tell the CHP that you simply made giant vents for your car so you didn't have to run your A/C.
I think you might end up with a ticket.
Like I said, cut a hole in your hood and maybe you could get away with calling it a vent. Take the hood completely off. Is it just a big vent now?
You can drive a convertible legally on the road and not get pulled over. That is exactly what we were supposed to build.
On the other hand, an exposed roll cage with 2 doors would be pulled over and that is what was built. No matter how much pleading you do with the officer, you are not going to convince him that the giant openings in your skeleton car are simply vents that are necessary.
Somebody has to draw the line in the sand between vents and missing side covers.
If I can reach in and unplug the SSD and pull it out in a matter of seconds, then I wouldn't call the case, "enclosed".
No matter how you slice it and dice it, the case is open on 4 sides and closed on 2.
And calling them vents really stretches the definition of a vent. If you can put your hand through a "vent" and pull the SSD out, is it still called a "vent"?
What I see is an unfinished roll cage being put into competition with fully clothed cases.
Since the rules have clearly been modified to allow more than 1 open side, we pulled a fan out since it appears to be legal now to have random holes.
My ultimate question is, where do you draw the line between a bare roll cage frame and a vent? Clearly there is a difference.

utnorris
10-08-2010, 01:13 PM
I am not trying to be a jerk here, but I have to agree on this point Brian. The rules were that it had to have 5 physical sides. This was to prevent someone from using a bench table or just a MB tray. We were going to do a bench table, but because the rules specified that it had to have 5 sides we scrapped that idea. Using a bench table, regardless of how cool it is, gives a user an unfair advantage for a big chunk of the contest points, the weight part.

Also, you stated anyone could have asked you questions for clarity and therefore there will not be an extension, well, it's a two way street, Titon could have asked if his case would meet the criteria of 5 sides early on and the matter could have been cleared up a while back and other teams could have made adjustments to their setups.

Here's what I've been working on.

According to Solidworks the empty case should weigh 3.36 lbs.

The first pics are SW screenshots, solid models and wireframe.

The materials used are 3/4" PVC rigid plastic, 3/4" aluminum angle and stainless steel sheet. ( Doesn't sound too lite when you say it. )

In the shot showing the bottom, you can see all the cavities I machined out to reduce weight.

Each plastic end piece started at 3.29 lbs. The back is .894 lbs. when finished and the front is .664 lbs.

One pic shows raw materials. The other is a shot in the milling machine, of the first cut.

In some of these pics I was test fitting components, and a couple more in the mill.

There will be a stainless steel cover over the whole case.

I will post more pics in a while as a couple pieces are still at the laser cutter.

Trying to find where I stashed my SPi screenshot.

Ton's case has five sides in my opinion. A side is not a wall. A side indicates it has structure. modding is about thinking outside the box. it is impossible to define everything to the most micro detail. In the end you learn and move on. I have judged MANY MANY modding contests - there will always be issues people do not disagree with (heck, I was the one complaning in my first contest that I competed in).

I will say you guy need to pay attention to detail ;) I mean in your builds as that is what I look for.

hey guys, i have talked to about 20 people since last night. ASUS staff, Case modders, enthusiasts, overclockers and people that dont know about computers, i have explained the situation to them afterwards and they have all agreed that TiTon's case has 5 Sides. although people have said its just a frame, it is still a side to the case and is not a completely open environment.

These were the exact rules "Participant must have 5 sides to the case (you may have 1 side open)" we did not mention any kind of "seal" to the side. i can also bring up the fact of the Antec skeleton submission in the ASUS thread. This also has 5+ sides. It is a frame but it is still a side. Anyone could have easily used this case for their submission

going forward, we will tally up all the submissions and at 12 i will go over the submissions with the forum mods and asus staff for style points EVERYONE so far has AWESOME RIGS!

i also want to add to darth's comment, everyone was free to ask questions on the forums or pm me. and MANY of you PMed me to ask what is ok and not ok. just wanted to put that out there incase you think something may have been unfair. i will not tell publicly what others have asked me because obviously everyone has their own trick up their sleeve. whether its style, materials, or benching technique.

you guys should take into consideration Brian did not just blow off your concerns but took them into consideration and deliberated (knowing him he probably lost sleep over it). Even if the conclusion is not what you wanted at least you were listened to and your perspective valued. Sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture - and just enjoy the competition.

Wow.. nice score. You need to edit HWBot. You realy got 8.097, but its listed as 8.97s.

Also, where do you live? How the heck you get your temps so low? Did you bench in a freezer?

- Ton

69_Goat
10-08-2010, 08:28 PM
The bot does that with scores. It's not the first time I've seen the leading zero dropped.

As far as the temps, I damn near live in a freezer. LOL. It was -5C outside when I ran that.

It isn't my best score, either. A run I did last night was 8.018s, but I couldn't connect to the web to upload it and it wouldn't
transfer to my thumb drive. By the time I went for my next best score and the bot stalling, it put me over the limit.

10-08-2010, 08:32 PM

And no, because it means I go from third to fourth. Call it selfish, but that's why you do not wait till the last moment to enter.

TiTON
10-08-2010, 09:26 PM
Put it this way.. I don't mind, but IF it effects the "Winning" list, people will scream bloody murder.

I would suggest giving him the "lowest" Spi Score or Point Penalty, vs DQ'ing him. This way if the winners can't make it, he should still be on the list. At the same time, it won't effect the out come of people who submitted on time. Hope that makes sense.

- Ton

utnorris
10-08-2010, 09:29 PM
I will agree to that. Look it's not personal, but we all put in a lot of time into this. Bei Fei built the case from scratch and we spent a lot of hours benching and assembling the system. At Quakecon I was not able to do my second official run on the second day of the Formula overclocking competition and that cost me from placing and possibly winning.

utnorris
10-08-2010, 09:45 PM
Well, I thought Honda was out of it, but I misread, so I really don't have a leg to stand on since he beats us. Oh well.

Brian@ASUS
10-08-2010, 09:46 PM
so does everyone want him 69goat to stay in the race but lowest spi score? this is really up to honda and pcjunkie and posershadow because it will affect them

utnorris
10-09-2010, 11:14 AM
So I have been going back and forth with Brian on this and this is nothing against 69goat, but I am definitely not happy about this. For the record, I never agreed to allow his team back in after they missed the deadline if it meant that it would bump one of the top three to fourth, which it did, my team. I also cannot believe PCJunkiie and his teammate are happy about this since it puts their position in jeopardy. Titon posted a solution which I took as it would not effect the "winning" positions and would place 69goat as an alternative if someone could not make the finals, that's what I agreed too. I am also being told that I am the only one that has any issues with this, then so be it. Although, again, I cannot believe that PCjunkie does not have an issue with this when he had an issue with Titon's case. Either way my team went from winning something to winning nothing due to something I never agreed too. This is the second Asus competition I have been in and the second time I am being screwed because the rules were changed at the last minute. We had rules that everyone agreed too by participating in the contest and I never agreed to have those changed if it meant the outcome of the contest would be changed. We worked just as hard as everyone else and did not wait till the last minute to post and we are now being penalized for it. While no one will probably care, I will not participate in another Asus contest again. It has nothing to do with the "Honorable" thing either Brian, it has to do with the rules being followed and what I agreed too.

imho if a site outside control of ASUS was having faults and since it was a requirement of the competition, I would have extended the competition till the site was working again, especially since this is of no fault or doing on the part of the competitors, not to mention in person (like is going to be in the finals) the score could have been seen and submitted immediately.

Brian@ASUS
10-10-2010, 12:43 AM
hey guys, alright, we have looked over submissions again and we will go back to the original rules. if you did not submit on time or if your submissions were invalid, it will be automatically DQed.
69_Goat - your benchmark submission was delayed. this category will be DQed.
HondaCity-your benchmark submission did not pass hwbot rules and did not have the proper apps open. this category will be DQed.
UTnorris- your weight submission was not legible with no text of weight added. official text weight was submitted at 1:04 and high res pic at 2:20 This category will be DQed.

everyone's qualified scores will still remain. PCjunkie and posershadow has taken 2nd place. the rest will be calculated when i get home. if there is a tie for third place, youll duke it out in a Spi 32m shootout. hope this clears up any drama and putting everything back into the fair scope.

Looks like my rig didn't stand a hope in hell... Can't really complain though for the price.

Me and my step dad have decided to make a new case from scratch. Maybe when the next Tour starts I may be in with a chance, specially when I kit out my Rig. I wish you all th best of luck... and may the best rig win.
