This comp is going to be different this time.

So the goal is to make the baddest ass desktop background you can.

This desktop may be used by ASUS ROG Team for a future contest so you must be willing to pass rights over to ASUS.

Winners to be decided by end user poll vote's, I will grab all the desktop backgrounds and put them into one post and you will have a poll to vote on.

Competition will run 3 weeks, entry submissions end 11/20 midnight EST.

Voting will run 1 week and end on 11/27 midnight EST.

Competition is for USA only as thats all I can afford to ship to.

Brands that should be incorporated into background are those that can be seen sponsoring this particular build i'm working on.

For now I only have one prize, so first place wins it however this may be subject to change if I can get AMD and or ASUS to also donate something :)

For now first place prize is a brand new unopened Corsair H70, prizes will however be rearanged according to $$$ value if more get added.

*disclaimer* this competition is run by me and only me, ASUS, Corsair, nor AMD are not to be held responsible for any actions etc etc etc.

One submission only? Or can we submit, and if we make another, can choose to have it replace the current submission we posted?

2560x1600 or keep it at 1920x1200/1080?

If you want to do high res thats fine.

As many submissions as you like until we do the poll, you pick the best one your happy with at that point.

@Brian: Way to ruin my concept. Was going to do just that. Looks like I'm doing something else.

Should have one or two in by the upcoming weekend.

Still not a fresh idea though. Would be seen as copyright. I have a couple backups.

How would it be seen as copyright if they will own your work anyway?

The idea is the copyright, it was pretty much the exact same idea that Brian had already posted. It's not a fresh idea and since it's already theirs, would be seen as stealing their idea and it wouldn't be my own.

I suppose. Not like they would do anything anyway, when you make a submission they can take it as their property anyways.

Now I'd love to make an ROG-only backround, but that build is also half Corsair so I included Corsair/AMD into mine.

It' appears that since only one submission was made by the dealdline there is no need for a poll to vote.

Beepbeep2 wins by default.

You could always come up with a way to give it away again and share the love. One option would be that you could add it to Otto's folding contest. Or just hold onto it. These are good coolers and you never know when you might need a spare part like a CPU cooler.

I'll go ahead and take it, test it out a bit...

I have some plans with it and a golden 90nm 5600+ Windsor...it's just I didn't want to take it from anyone who may have entered and needed it because they couldnt afford one. Obviously on my main rig I already run my own loop.

That's a great act right there! I really respect that. Let's see if Chew will approve it first.
