    How am I the first to suggest these?
    Asus Cheesecake or Asus Relix. Or possibly the Asus Felix - every time you boot it up it displays a random poem for your...um...pleasure.
    Asus Martin - covered in weird soft hair.
    Asus Swinburne - for professionals only (no instruction manual included; you don't need anything explained to you, you're a professional).

    Christ, is posting a dozen different names as your entry fair?

    Anyway, I think Mars is a good one. I know they have used it for their GTX295 monster, but an Asus Mars range would be awesome. A motherboard named after the god of war? PLEASE!

    I like the sounds of
    Asus Barrage
    Sounds like theres heaps of it coming at you (many parallel activities) and its all happening very fast.
    As a joke, how bout tacking the word ASUS infront of captcha words such as:
    Asus shr mammary
    Asus overlooks wave
    Asus dupe times

    Asus Thunderbolt

    Armored vehicles and fighterplane-names are really the coolest ones ever :) PS: I still can't afford going to UK, so give it to someone else !

    Straightforward name developments along same themes:
    Commando ==> Ranger
    Crosshair ==> Boresight
    Maximus ==> Mekistos
    Rampage ==> Carnage

    Or a range of Greek god Titans:
    Titan
    Hyperion
    Atlas
    Prometheus (or Prometheon)

    Or a range based on names for Kings/Emperors etc:
    Rex
    Imperator

    Or on the SI prefixes:
    Tera
    Peta (hmmmm....)
    Exa
    Zetta (or ExaZetta?)
    Yotta (well, maybe not.... :lol:)

    Or historical leaders:
    Khan
    Hannibal
    Attila
    Caeser (hmmm, could be confused with seizer, which wouldn't be good)
    Cleopatra (well, why should everything be masculine?)

    Or 7 wonders related:
    Babylon
    Colossus
    Artemis
    Olympus

    Or the following words I simply made up in 5 seconds flat (so they can be forgotten in 2 seconds flat :lol:):
    Rakker
    Materion
    Vordran
    Atrak

    well, that's much too long a post already....

    Not meaning to sound sour but I totally agree with that. And posting 28 isn't fair, in my opinion.

    ASUS Fireblade

    Meh, I'm no good with names. The thought occurs, is active monitoring of the VRMs better than just slapping a short heatsink on them? I know it can't be too big to interfere with the PCU cooler, but there are caps around them that are taller. Or a heatpipe? Everyone loves heatpipes!

    I most certainly love the physics behind them, the careful equilibrium of gasses and fluids bounding back and forth moving heat away. Its so clever.

    totally agree with you both fibblesan and skiddywinks that one name per person would have been best. i was suprised to see more. but more there were and i for one go with the flow. so why not post some more ideas yourselves ;-). and best of luck to you :)

    Couple more I've thought of:

    ASUS LAN Ranger - good for gaming boards
    ASUS Katana - keeping with my earlier theme of Japanese words
