Asus touts on-the-fly overclocking with ROG OC Station

By on
Overclocking has come a long way since the early days of setting motherboard jumpers and calculating multipliers. Although a fair amount of knowledge is still needed, these days, software tools are available for tweaking your hardware on-the-fly from Windows without ever having to dive into the BIOS. Now Asus wants to make things even easier, while catering to the PC enthusiast crowd, with the introduction of a hardware-based device that promises to “take overclocking to a whole new level of ease, accuracy and sophistication.”

The new Republic of Gamers (ROG) OC Station is a bay-mounted overclock assistant that, when used in conjunction with ROG motherboards, will let users tweak parameters such as voltages, frequencies and fan speeds, even while in the middle of a game. The device mounts in two 5.25-inch bays, and has a large knob on front as well as a 3-inch TFT tilt screen for keeping an eye on things – and overall making your gaming rig look quite impressive. Asus did not reveal any pricing details, but we’ll probably learn more at Computex next month.
