ROG @ Insomnia 2023: Eat, Sleep, Game…RECAP!

Sep 27, 2023 Written by:ROG Article

Thank you to all that visited us at the i71 Intel stand, we had a blast meeting all our die-hard ROG fans and seeing your enthusiasm for the epic custom builds and systems we brought along.

Massive thanks to Scan for showcasing our Powered by ASUS range and offering exclusive deals on some Starfield ready pre-builts. And Mr Matt Lee for his exquisitely built whisper quiet Noctua build and EVANGELION-01 build.

We had a massive giveaway at the event for the ROG x EVANGELION PC where gamers had to complete a set of Aim Lab challenges. Find out if you were in the top 30 below!

On that note, for those that couldn’t make it or would like to just relive the moment, we’ve got some drool worthy pics of the new ROG x EVANGELION-02 collaboration.

The Gamer’s Choice!


We had so many people try our aimlab challenge and really put the ROG Harpe Ace through it’s paces. Impressed by its lightweight, great handfeel and ultra-low latency many of you found the cherry on top being the Aimlab integration.

If you’ve fumbled (speaking for myself here) your way through the pesky grid shot challenge or completed any playlists you’ll notice that Aimlabs recommends some settings to change on your mouse for better performance depending on your style and handling. 

With the ROG Harpe Ace you can just import those best settings with a click of a button, then customise and tweak to your heart's content.

We also had the tempered glass mouse matt - ROG Moonstone Ace L for effortless tracking and smooth swiping.


Here’s One I Made Earlier….


GeekaWhat, touted as the king of pc building guides, was on hand to help attendees get to grips with building their first pc, pitting them against each other in the most brutal gladiatorial time challenges I’ve ever seen.

But more seriously, dispeling a lot of trepidation around putting components together on the pathway to building a pc. 

With many workshop-goers leaving quietly relieved and more confident to take on their first pc project. Many also left with the burgeoning pride of beating their peers in the time challenge. Even though they might have bent a couple CPU pins in the process.

Let’s not forget about the silent master: Mr Matt Lee. Who graced us with builds ‘as seen on YouTube’. The podium acted as a bat signal for PC connoisseurs that marvelled at the impeccable choice of components, use of case space or the impressive cable management.

We also had a bunch more stuff on display including the ROG Raikiri Pro game controller, our headsets like the Animate and Delta S Core and a range of peripherals from the diy-itch-scratching ROG Azoth to the no-compromise, compact ROG Strix Scope II 96.
