If you’re not familiar with the professional overclocking scene, then you might not be familiar with who Nick Shih is, but suffice to say that he’s one of the world’s top five overclockers. He also happens to work with ASRock and he has now designed a motherboard together with ASRock targeting professional overclockers.

We had the opportunity to speak with Thermaltake. We are all avid gamers and wanted an explanation to us about the different mechanical switches available and what the difference is between them.

If you’ve been keeping an eye on our Twitter and Facebook, you’ll know that we promised to come up with some video coverage of COMPUTEX.

As a result, we’ve been able to assemble some pretty decent looking coverage just for you. So hats off to GIGABYTE, BitFenix and CORSAIR because here’s what they were showing off at COMPUTEX Taipei 2012!
