For those of you joining in, we wanted to give you an update on whats been going on with Xtreme Design!

We reached out to Hothardware members and asked what they would do with Xtreme Design features on ASUS motherboards. We also asked what kind of Xtreme Design computer build they would make if we supplied parts from our sponsored partners: INTEL, NVIDIA, ANTEC, G.SKILL, RAZER, SAMSUNG!

We picked a total of 20 winners and 7 of them were from Hothardware!
