So, here we are in the fourth week of the Asus Xtreme Global Summit competition, so we’ve got another five winners to announce. Last week’s post covered Asus’ T.Probe VRM technology
and after such a techy post, the question we posed was a fun one:
“The challenge involves coming up with a new name for a Republic of Gamers motherboard - we've seen the Maximus (1, 2 and 3), the Commando, the Crosshair, the Rampage... what should follow this illustrious line-up?”
Read on to see who the winners were after the jump!
This was a fun one to judge, and there were some excellent suggestions that made us actually LOL – although we liked HugoB’s suggestion of the Asus Felix
(“ every time you boot it up it displays a random poem”
), the fact Hugo’s another journalist means we decided instead to opt for some suggestions from others readers.
Winner 11: wuyanxu
We liked wuyanxu’s argument that “names should have a background”
, and we could really see his suggestion of names based on fighter planes being taken up.
Winner 12: bradders2125
Our second winner this week is bradders2125, with three names inspired by the Greeks. Best of all was the “Asus Athena - Goddess of wisdom, warfare, strategy, handicrafts and reason. Kind of sums up some of the things it [a motherboard] gets used for.”
Winner 13: yakyb
Yakyb’s post was one of the funniest in the thread:
“How about the Asus Simba (the powerful version), or the Pumba (the slightly bloated version), or the Timone (the quirky overclocker).”
Winner 14: Omnituens
While we can’t see Asus and Disney getting together for a killer line of overclocking motherboards, we’re all for promoting science here at bit-tech
, and wholeheartedly endorse Omnituens’ suggestion of the “Asus Oppenheimer - DESTROYER OF BENCHMARKS”
Winner 15: flibblesan
This week’s final winner had a trio of good suggestions, including the Asus Behemoth.
Congratulations to all the winners – I’ll be dropping you a PM with further details, so check your forum messages!
We’ve still got five tickets to give away. Stay tuned to the bit-tech
blog for your chance to win!
