And the winner is…

This year’s competition was full of emotions and action. The 3960x CPUs retained by MSI as competition processors featuring their 2011 socket motherboard BigBang II clearly ate up almost all stocks of LN2 here.

In addition to the 680GTX Lightnings spiting out Frames per seconds like never before, this MOA was simply a blast for all of us.

Last year Monstru and matose took the Romanian flag proudly on the podium and this year is the turn of South Korea to take over the MOA throne.
