UPDATE: Congrats to the GGPC May event winner Peter W!

Hurrah it’s May! Must be time for some awesome new Gaming PC builds + new Logitech G goodies to be won!

May treats us to some of the best component options available in the world today, a range of new GGPC builds that feature Gundam Edition RTX & Z590, we’re excited to BUILD BIG in the gigantic AORUS C700 with WATERFORCE graphics, and the NZXT H1 mini PC case returns updated with the new PCIe assembly – so we’re bringing back a range of awesome computers for the lounge or living room gamer!

Get yourself a Good Gaming PC this May and you can register to redeem a G240 Gaming Mouse Pad to go with your new Gaming Rig. The G240 Gaming Mouse Pad provides edge-to-edge performance on a clean surface with just the right amount of friction for low-DPI manoeuvres. Crafted for maximum control of your mouse movements, your gaming will benefit from the consistent surface texture, also giving your mouse sensors better imagery for translating mouse movement into cursor movement.

An excellent mouse pad for any mouse, but that’s not all we’ve got up for grabs, our Massive May Gaming Prize Pack will also be going out to one lucky gamer!

IMPORTANT: To be in to win the MEGA Prize you must register for the Logitech G240 Bonus!

Our grand prize pack for the May 2021 event is massive, featuring some of the latest releases from Logitech G that all work together with the new Software Suite named Logitech G HUB, which will allow our lucky winner to customise their new full gaming setup all in one go, with RGB lighting effects and sweet new animations to play around with. It also integrates with OBS and many other popular plug-ins – you can create game profiles then share them with the community – or download those made by other gamers and use them yourself – there has never been a better way to macro!

Up first we have the new gaming headset named the Logitech G733 in white, and it’s beautiful! Very lightweight, with comfy earcups and an awesome mic. The G733 Gaming Headset is outfitted with all the surround sound, voice filters, and advanced lighting our winner could want 🙂

The quality audio is both thunderous and precise, with PRO-G drivers designed for full-range sound and next-gen DTS Headphone:X 2.0 surround sound support. Advanced PC features include Blue VO!CE, so our winner can lead the team with confidence and have others enjoy the crystal-clear communication, with Discord Certified sound 🙂

It’s also wireless, but not just normal wireless – LIGHTSPEED WIRELESS!

Ahhh such a great headset – but our awesome May grand prize pack has even more amazing gear up for grabs!

The new Logitech G915 TKL Wireless Gaming Keyboard is a breakthrough in design and engineering, also featuring LIGHTSPEED pro-grade wireless with advanced LIGHTSYNC RGB, and high-performance low-profile mechanical switches. Crafted meticulously from premium materials, the G915 TKL is a sophisticated design of unparalleled beauty, strength, and performance, and with the TLK (ten-key-less) compact form factor, it’s also a better fit!

With keyboard and headset sorted our winner is going to need an awesome new gaming mouse, and we’ve got that covered with this awesome Logitech G305 Wireless Gaming Mouse!

At first glance, you may think the Logitech G305 gaming mouse looks basic in comparison to our usual offerings but don’t be fooled, this G305 packs incredible technology within the sleek design. A HERO sensor delivers exceptionally accurate and consistent performance with zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration from 200 to 12,000 DPI. G305 can save up to 5 profiles with up to 5 DPI levels each on the onboard memory, and limitless via the Logitech G HUB.

That revolutionary new optical sensor delivers class-leading performance and up to 10 times the power efficiency (compared to the previous gen), and that’s an essential specification as this mouse is WIRELESS too!

Wow! What a bunch of prizes!

Check out the all the latest Gaming PC builds and Logitech G prizes, and keep your eyes on the GGPC Blog as we’ll announce the lucky MEGA PRIZE PACK winner at the end of the month!

GAME ON!

Custom Gaming PC – Best of Computex 2016

ComputexNZ

 

The Computex 2016 expo was a showcase for some of the most talented modders in the world and while we were at the show hunting down new chassis, components and gaming gear we also took some time to meet the makers and see all the awesome custom PC they built!

There are a bunch of rig modding competitions with big prizes to inspire creativity so before we dive in here’s a bit more information about two of our favourites that you can participate in down here in New Zealand and Australia 🙂

CASE MOD WORLD SERIES 2016 ANZ EDITION 

The Cooler Master Case Mod World Series ANZ edition was created to recognize and promote modders within our community. Three Winners from ANZ region will be selected after the Case Mod World Series 2016 concludes on the 8th of June.  There are two categories you could choose to enter, the first begin a case modification and the second is a to build a PC from scratch which is loads of fun!

CASE MOD 2016 INVITATIONAL 

2016 Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational Season 1’s modding theme is the Thermaltake Core P5 ATX Wall-Mount chassis. Participating modders have the choice of modding a single or dual build. Modders are given a special time frame to complete the build and are given an unlimited selection of Thermaltake products to mod and install on the build.

Now everyone knows what’s up let’s take a look at some builds!

This one is a rather cool build (lol couldn’t resist) from case modder Jenki – It takes Captain Americas shield and encases it within ice as it slices through the P5 – pretty crazy stuff and he’s even modded a gaming keyboard to match!

If you’re a fan the Gundam Anime you might have recognised this build right away, a creation by modder Von Carlo Rasonabe (Reapervon) this one is named “The Weapon of Mass Destruction” and it’s pretty massive!

We also spotted an out of this world mod known as the BAHIA BLASTER by case modder Maciel Barreto, aside from the liquid coolant reservoir on the front it’s pretty hard to tell this one is a gaming PC!  Enermax had some of the best cable management of the show with an excellent Division custom build but the Gigabyte Mini-Gun PC was certainly the show stopper with its rotating barrel – check out this beast in action!

These are just a small slice of what’s on show, other highlights included a very cool NZXT noctis chassis with a very impressive window graphics, there was a Ghost Busters LEGO PC complete with green goo and an incredible InWin S Frame lit up with Steampunk style.
