How do ROG fall in with the plans?


We all love our PC's and spend time modifying and creating them, if it was a modified or custom car you would take it to a car show and so with a PC you should be able to take it to a PC Show right?
At Platform 2013 we will have an area for Custom and Modified PC's where people can come and see the worlds best custom PC, the ones made by ROGers.

How do i take part? So you already have your custom PC or you are in the process of building it or will be in November then you can come down and bring your PC to Platform 2013 and show it of, demo your overclocking abilities, show your watercooling prowess anything you want really as long as it shows of your PC.

All ROG member PC's on display will automatically get free entry for the days they wish to show of their PC on as well as automatic entry into the following competitions.


Best in Show
Best Watercooled modification
best Air cooled modification
Best Scratch Build
Best Modification/Customisation
Highest CPU Core Speed



Although i would love to do an overclocking competition or such we dont have the partners in place to make sure we had an even playing field but we will have a highest GHz and the benchmark that will be used to validate a stable system will be our very own ROG RealBench due to its growing reputation.



Any questions feel free to ask, we will also be doing an exclusive ROG Ticket that all members of the ROG community can access at a discount but more details about that will be put up in a month or two.


Q&A:

Q: I am a company that makes custom PC's am i ok to attend this for free and rep my company?
A: Yes you are but your space will be limited and if you really want to show your kit off you would be better as an exhibitor, you will still be in the same place as the other PC's and wont be hidden away at the back of a room or such and as you are a ROGer you will be special treatment from Chewitt.

Q: I want to completely build a PC at the event for people to see am i ok to do this and how will you stop people running off with my kit while i am fiddling with a MoBo screw?
A: We will make sure that if you are going to be doing something we class as risky that if you need a barrier we provide one to keep your kit safe while you concentrate, although if you want to bring a friend to talk to people and explain what you are doing that is cool and the friend will also get in for free.

Q: I want to bring a multi-monitor setup can i?
A: Sure you can we want the PC Showcase to make all the Console players bow down and kiss farther of all consoles feet so the more impressive the better.

Q: What can i do on my PC while im at the show?
A: Feel free to play games, run benchmarks anything you want to really its your PC (Just no 18+ Special content if you get my drift)

How many people went?

At HQ just yesterday in a quarterly review we were looking at UK events to attend last night. Our Swedish, French and German teams hold ROG Tournaments which have been very successful for DOTA2 and SCII, and as ROG in the UK is a big brand, we are thinking about how to support our UK fans 🙂

I know you did contact us before, and I'm sorry we couldn't be more involved this time as it seems our efforts are not in sync. The event looked great from the pictures though!

We had 5872 visitors to the PC Showcase over the 2 days, with Day 1 tailored more towards Education and Day 2 towards Play and Entertainment.

Glad you liked the pictures, i tried to support the PC side of the event as much as i could and that included having Minecraft running on the main stage on PC not on Console as well as getting HiVizMan a great setting for the LN2 show as well as the free POS and TV.

We really want to support the PC Sector as much as we can as it is vital to the Gaming industry after all a console every 8 or so years will never drive innovation and after all innovation is where the money is.

Not bad! I'll poke a few people here if we can do something with the Minecraft community in the UK. It was noted that it was popular at i-series too.

Yeah, speaking of i-Series we had Multiplay run our Minecraft event so it was the exact same setup apart from we designed the new POS and pods in house.

Richard our ROG stand was chock a block the entire schools day with us having to take turns doing the LN2 demonstrations, it was well worth it. The response from the kids and teachers was fantastic. We have actually been asked to come back to Hull by the local council and do a school educational science week in March. We did a couple of good interviews for BBC and the local TV station too while.

The second day was just insane. The number of people who congregated around the stand was simply amazing - the tension when we got close to the world record was intense. Our Team GB benching facebook and web page numbers have gone through the roof as a result. Certainly something that we will be doing next year again.
