Quote from ASUS B150I Pro Gaming / Aura review: "The highlight feature for the Aurua is the “Aura” LED lighting system which can be customized not only by color, but via Led behavior. You can select a variety of options,from a strobe effect to a rainbow pattern. How useful this is will again will depend on what it is you’re expecting to get from the board.”

Quote from QuantumX interview: “I started overclocking when I won a 8800GTS 320MB Graphics card in a competition. I read reviews about the card before it shipped and in the reviews they tested the overclocking ability of the card which introduced me to it all. I had an AMD Sempron 3400+ which had a single core and only did 1.8GHz on an MSI K9N Neo motherboard (nForce 550 chipset). I soon realized the CPU was bottlenecking my GPU so I eventually overclocked it to around 2.4GHz.”

Quote from HWBOT World Tour article: “Several months ago in March. HWBOT made its first ever stop in Africa, more importantly sunny South Africa, home to Elite overclockers, ViVi and DrWeez. A new country, new continent at a new gaming show, HWBOT in partnership with MSI, SEASONIC, INTEL, G.Skill and NAG put together one of the best amateur overclocking workshops that have taken place in the country. Of course at the same time qualifiers were held for the more extreme overclockers where the eventual winner DrWeez, would earn the privilege of making his way to Germany for the final, later on in the year.”
