I was glad to witness this historic moment. The 1st ASUS Ultimate Overclocking Show in SM City Cebu was a first in the entire Philippines. Before, most overclocking shows and competitions in Cebu were only done online or in small internet cafés, but last May 23, Asus brought it to the SM City Cebu, live!

The contest was between the Cebu Xtremes and Sugbo Elites and the scoreboard based on the categories that they were vying for:

Highest CPU Mhz Intel: Sugbu Elites

Asus, the world’s no. 1 motherboard manufacturer, provided the teams with top hardware such as the latest Intel Core i7 board – Rampage II Gene and the OC record-breaking AMD-based motherboard, M4A79-T deluxe. The teams will also use the latest graphic cards from the brand such as the ASUS EAH4890 and ASUS ENGTX285.

The Asus Rampage II Gene is part of Asus’ Republic of Gamers (ROG) series. As the name suggests, all R.O.G products are made to provide the best performing solutions for serious gamers and overclockers. Rampage II GENE echoes this as it boasts premium features such as MemOK! for worry-free memory upgrades, CPU Level Up for easy system performance boosts, and onboard SupremeFX X-Fi for true-to-life surround sound in a compact mATX form.

The Asus M4A79-T deluxe motherboard on the other hand, features the unique Asus Xtreme Phase Power design, also evident in most Asus motherboards. It utilizes more phases to deliver more power and achieve better performance, more stability, enhance power efficiency, and lower temperatures under any loading.

Besides from these top-notch motherboards, the overclockers used memory from OCZ, Caviar Black hard disks from Western Digital, Sunbeam coolers, Silverstone power supply and cordless mouse and keyboard from Logitech. Microsoft Corporation was provided for the operating systems.

And btw, thanks to team behind the event, especially to Ms. Angie Limbaco and Mr. Jason Teh for the dinner treat in Bigby's!
