Hello ROG members!
ASUS has been a proud sponsor of BlizzCon of 2009 and 2010! I must say BlizzCon was one insane event for us! It was bigger and better in everyway than the years before and I believe it was the largest booth in history at BlizzCon. Here is a recap of the entire ROG experience!

Setting up the booth the day before the event:

Day 1:
We used custom phase units for day 1 where there was some complications with the phase unit for Ironmods.
Ironmods and Grunts were tied at 1:1

Day 2:
We decided to level out the playing field with factory cooling units from corsair (h70)
Grunts led 3:0
with a FINAL SCORE OF 4:1!

Grunts were the underdogs in this one as Posershadow and PCjunkie had never been in competition state before. This was also PCJunkies first real attempt at extreme overclocking. They definitely pulled through with the last minute support from ROG forum members. Grunts will advance to the 2011 OC SUMMIT!

Spectators were definitely interested in the tournament
