    well, if you are into that kind of things........ it's just a tour of a factory. i had tryed to get information on how the ROG's netbook overclock utility work during the event last friday, but they won't say.

    IMHO it's more interesting to get a tour of, say, ARM, no factory floors, just where real innovation happens.

    Just a tour?

    Dude, I want to go to Taiwan - it could be a tour around the broom cupboard for all I care!

    each to their own. as i used to have Chinese national, i've visited there before. also, studying Electronics at Southampton, we have our own clean rooms for chip and PCB productions.

    im just happy to have a blog server to mess around and post stuff :) it'd be my first time writing online other than very short posts in forums / on facebook.

    Blogging is cool. I'm pretty sure that a few mags will be reading our blog posts so it's a potential chance to get noticed :)

    Hello there, are you the unlucky chap with food poisoning who couldn't attend? I honestly do feel for you as the event was immense! However I take it you got your kit mailed out to you??

    Again its a shame you couldnt make it as it will make blogging a little harder! Make sure you do a good job with the kit you got (provided you did get it and its the amd stuff) as I am very keen to see how well it works etc.

    yea I was pretty gutted, but when your eyes are bigger than your belly then sometimes you hve to take the consiquences! Lol

    I looked through the pictures on flikr and it seems everyone had alot of fun and got to play with some pretty decent kit!

    It's definatly gonna make a difference when it comes to blogging but hopefully I can bring a somewhat outsiders view on the event and kit I got!
    Looking forward to powering up the mobo and CPU because everyone knows that free stuff always performs better!

    By the way, for all you guys who got AMD boards and CPU's... I might have something that may interest some of you. Before I won the competition I ordered some new kit, AMD stuff mainly. So was wondering if any of you need RAM (4 GBOCZ DDR3 AMD Edition) or a Zalman CNPS-9900-LED heatsink. I have no used as I dont wanna use this stuff with my i7 setup. Cant use the classifieds forum as I havnt got enough posts!

    But anyone who may be interested let me know...

    Found this Chinese forum thanks to a twitter Bindi sent out. Looks like part of the Chinese ASUS Xtreme Global Summit event. Made me laugh as, for some reason, they were building cases out of styrofoam 0.o

    I'm so happy we did nice things like overclocking and playing games!
