The ROG is a masterpiece of engineering, boasting pre-applied liquid metal thermal compound that elevates its performance to unprecedented levels, surpassing every other RTX 4090 in existence. Equipped with a powerful pump, a large 360mm radiator, and three daisy-chainable fans, the Matrix seamlessly blends raw power with elegance, leaving other graphics cards in the dust.

ROG extends its deepest gratitude to every auction participant, whose generous contributions propelled the bidding price to an astonishing $10,000 within the first day alone. However, only one could emerge victorious, and we are immensely proud to announce that the coveted prize belongs to none other than PC hardware legend and ROG confidant, Roman ‘der8auer’ Hartung, who secured the prize with an impressive bid of $16,000.

Der8auer has been a pioneer in the realm of innovative cooling solutions for over a decade and a half, both as an individual extreme overclocker and as the visionary leader of Thermal Grizzly, a renowned manufacturer of high-performance thermal pastes and extreme PC cooling solutions.

Upon receiving news of his triumph, der8auer shared his excitement, stating:

“I’ve been a collector of Matrix cards for a long time, so I’m so excited to add this extra-special ROG Matrix 4090 to the collection. And to have the money go to a great cause like Make-A-Wish is just the cherry on top.”
