“The challenge involves coming up with a new name for a Republic of Gamers motherboard - we've seen the Maximus (1, 2 and 3), the Commando, the Crosshair, the Rampage... what should follow this illustrious line-up?”
Read on to see who the winners were after the jump!
This was a fun one to judge, and there were some excellent suggestions that made us actually LOL – although we liked HugoB’s suggestion of the Asus Felix (“ every time you boot it up it displays a random poem”), the fact Hugo’s another journalist means we decided instead to opt for some suggestions from others readers.
Winner 11: wuyanxu
We liked wuyanxu’s argument that “names should have a background”, and we could really see his suggestion of names based on fighter planes being taken up.
Winner 12: bradders2125
Our second winner this week is bradders2125, with three names inspired by the Greeks. Best of all was the “Asus Athena - Goddess of wisdom, warfare, strategy, handicrafts and reason. Kind of sums up some of the things it [a motherboard] gets used for.”
Winner 13: yakyb
Yakyb’s post was one of the funniest in the thread:
“How about the Asus Simba (the powerful version), or the Pumba (the slightly bloated version), or the Timone (the quirky overclocker).”
Winner 14: Omnituens
While we can’t see Asus and Disney getting together for a killer line of overclocking motherboards, we’re all for promoting science here at bit-tech, and wholeheartedly endorse Omnituens’ suggestion of the “Asus Oppenheimer - DESTROYER OF BENCHMARKS”.
Winner 15: flibblesan
This week’s final winner had a trio of good suggestions, including the Asus Behemoth.
Congratulations to all the winners – I’ll be dropping you a PM with further details, so check your forum messages!
We’ve still got five tickets to give away. Stay tuned to the bit-tech blog for your chance to win!
