The official tournament games featured at the event were FrossFire, World of Tanks, Dota 2, DoTA, Counterstrike: Global Offensive, Dragon Nest, Starcraft 2 and League of Legends.
Modders and Overclockers Powered By ASUS
ASUS invited top overclocker Mike “˜DJSub’ Patelo to PGF 2012 in order to showcase his overclocking skills and the extreme overclocking capabilities of the ROG series of motherboards, as well as offer free advice and tutorials about overclocking to anyone who dropped by the ASUS booth. He also took the time to educate curious users and passers-by about the ASUS products that make it possible for him to break world records such as the exclusive OCKey from the Maximus V Extreme.
Side-by-side with the Philippine’s top overclocker is Paul Tan and the talented case modders from RigNoobies who were invited to show off their modded and custom made, ASUS-powered rigs. In a surprising turn of events, three of these rigs recently bagged the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for an international case modding contest held at rog.asus.com. In order, the winners are Camshow who won a Maximus V Formula, Tantric who won an ASUS HD7850-DC2-2GD5-V2, and anthony8659 who won a Maximus V Gene. (http://bitly.com/Oi9QcI)
