With almost 350,00 visitors expected to tour the vast halls of the Koelnmesse before Gamescom closes its doors on 21st August 2016, KitGuru walked a marathon on your behalf to find the best bits. While the MSI booth did have hands-on opportunities for gamers to try out the latest GT73 with dual GTX 1080 chips in VR-pixel-pumping SLi formation, by far the largest area had been given over to a pro-modding, against-the-clock competition to create some case craziness. Dirk Neuneier, Channel Marketing Manager for MSI Technnology, was our guide.
The pro-modding and VR areas had been set up for the public, while final touches were being made to a large ‘Modding 101' classroom. Over the course of the 4 days that the show is open to the public, visitors to the MSI stand were being encouraged to express themselves with an array of tools. Customising PCs can be fun but, for a beginner, it's nice to build your confidence up with professional training (and someone else's hacksaws and panels).

KitGuru says: We love shows and exhibitions. In this modern world of online sales and marketing, it's great for 350,000 hardcore gamers to have a chance to see and try the very latest in hardware, as well as seeing pro-modders close up.
