The whole tournament was run off a very developed and tested
point scoring system which involved hefty equations in order to make the competition
as fair as possible. Variables within the equation include the cost of the components,
such that the competition does not favour the rich, but takes into account price/performance
ratio.

As seen from the results table above, Contestant Wang
Tian Qi
emerged as the winner of the Low-End Category, while Mr Jia
Ming Shuo
took home the first prize for the Mid-Range Category. And
our VR-Zone Team-Mate in China, Xu Gang was on Top-form during
the show-down, and came in top for the High-End Category.

The whole competition was a no-holds barred show-down and contestants
were allowed to employ all means of cooling, from Liquid Nitrogen, to Dry Ice
and Water-cooling. The water-cooling contestants were provided with buckets
of water, and the Competition organizers provided Dry Ice for the convenience
of the Dry Ice users as well!!

Heroes, gather at the appointed time and place!
