    BlizzCon 2010 Recap! Not 56k friendly!

    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:









    Welcome to BLIZZCON



    Some cool wall art of ASUS and ROG. We may have a wall paper of the ROG logo. who's interested?



    Quick tour of the booth before the show starts: We had systems powered by ASUS Rampage III Gene and GTX460 from Falcon Northwest, Cyberpower, Ibuypower, and Digital Storm.



    Newegg came on board to give away a system to the facebook community


    We showed off Xonar Xense and the Lambo VX6


    N Series Notebooks along with our NX90


    2 3D Booths running 4 3D projectors at 100 inches!


    The Overclocking Workshop with V2-V3, Kaboom, and Nemesis


    The intel SSD booth showing off performance differences between hdd and ssd


    and last but not least, the OC Tournament! with Titon, Planet, Chew, Posershadow, PCJunkie209! Damn look at all that hardware!


    Thanks to our great sponsors for supporting the hardware and awesome performance!



    So here we go...
    As you can tell the booth was packed with people!



    Ironmods gets first pick on hardware


    Then Posershadow and pcjunkie209


    The winning mods from both teams!


    interviews









    whats goin on here...


    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


    As you can see Blizzcon was packed!




    Lots of 3D going on




    Unveiling the latest G73, G53 and G73/53 embedded 3D notebooks!



    Many Blizzard fans learned how to overclock for the first time during our workshop! We had Air, Water, and Phase
    V2-V3



    Nemesis

    Kaboom
