Famous overclocker Shamino leaving ASUS

Early retirement

According to information from OCLab.ru, Peter "Shamino" Tan, one of the well known guys in the overclocking community has apparently already left the ASUS ROG team and is going to early retirement.

Started to overclock back at VR-Zone, Shamino quickly got famous by crossing its LN2 overclocking skills with the likes of K|ngp|n, Hipro5, Kinc, and others back when overclocking was at its peak. Shamino went to Foxconn whcih resulted with the quite impressive Foxconn X48 BlackOps motherboard then hopped to EVGA for X58 Classified and P55 Classified motherboard while later settling at ASUS and its Republic of Gamers team.

Shamino is certainly responsible for some of the greatest ASUS ROG motherboards and its influence can be seen all across the ROG line since Rampage III and Maximus V series.

HWBOT also identified quite a phenomenon, known as the Shamino-effect, which allowed certain manufacturers to gain influence in overclocking community by simply putting Shamino in their team.

It is still not clear if Shamino is moving from overclocking or just switching to another company but we certainly wish him luck wherever he may end.
