Great prizes to be won!

With efforts of bringing up the gamers up to speed with the custom PC community, Brightstar and ASUS will have a Powered By ASUS PC Build Challenge at their ROG Concept Store, which is located at Lowyat.

This isn’t a small challenge either, as there are multiple brands sponsoring this contest. Firstly, is, of course, Brightstar and ASUS for organizing this contest and for sponsoring ASUS-manufactured motherboard and graphics card, AMD, and Corsair. I’m not sure why AMD is part of the sponsor, maybe the grand prize system uses an AMD graphics card. I’m not sure if it’s going to be Ryzen-based, since the image is actually showing an X99-based motherboard. Corsair, however, might be in this for the RAM sticks and/or PCIe NVMe SSD.

No details on what the Powered By ASUS PC Build Challenge grand prize system’s specs, but we’ll keep you updated when we have more information on this.

Now, what do you need to do in this grandiose challenge? Simple – there will be only one set of rig; each challenger will take a turn to assemble in the fastest time possible. The winner will be chosen according to the “fastest build time” and “other judging factors”, presumably functionality, cable management, and whatnot.

The Powered By ASUS PC Build Challenge is open to participants as young as 15 years old, and registration opens until the 15th June. First qualifier round to start on the 17th -18th June.
