TAITRA, Cybermedia join forces for CyberMods24hrs at Computex 2017
We’re just almost a week away before the commencement of the much-awaited Computex in Taiwan and brands that are based in the country, particularly in the computing segment, are all set for the annual event. As usual, it is going to be a week-long occasion jam-packed with activities for gamers, technology enthusiasts, and visitors in general.
This year, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), the organizer behind Computex, in partnership with Cybermedia, an international PR and communications firm specializing in the tech industry, is staging the CyberMods24hrs, dubbed as the most epic modding competition to date.
All participants in the CyberMods24hrs will have equal footing with one another as all of them will create their builds based on the components that will be provided during the competition. This scenario leaves the contestants with their knowledge and skills as the only weapons that they can use in CyberMods24hrs.
Happening at the Nangang Hall 4F, Light Gallery starting on May 30 and ending with an awarding ceremony on June 3, CyberMods24hrs will gather some of the world’s best PC modders from different parts of the globe, including: Alex Ciobanu and Ethan Cooper from Australia; Chen Zhi and Xing Kai from China; Chaipoj Khaowasut and Peekarij Rungthongkhamkul from Thailand; Alexander Banks and Robert Deluce from the United Kingdom; Calen Saddler and Jim Weist from the United States; and DJ Madrid and Michael John Lanaza Lacerna from the Philippines. All of them will be vying for cash prizes with a total amount of almost USD 10,000.
Apart from the competition, the true spirit of CyberMods24hrs is the camaraderie that will be established among the contestants and almost forty talented modders from Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania, South Africa, and South America who will share their knowledge and spread their passion about modding among the visitors of Computex. Modding workshops are scheduled from May 30 to June 3 with topics focusing on modding tools, acrylic fabrication, cable sleeving, liquid cooling, fitting, and tube bending.
CyberMods24hrs is sponsored by AOC, Bosch, CliqueFie, Colorful, Dremel, ECS, FSP, Galax, Huntkey, HyperX, Kingmax, PQI, Sharkoon, Supermicro, Thermaltake, and Zadak511. HardwareZone Philippines, together with 50 other organizations, is a proud media partner of CyberMods24hrs.
