Catching up on this here too.
Yeah, it's a pity PAX won't go through. I will be there too no matter what since I had some plans already in the area, so same, if anyone want's to meet I'm all up for it
There is also no need to get all worked up. It's life and these things happen. The key is to be able to bounce back and as they say "the show must go on."
Keep in mind that these events are all community focussed, and as anyone that attended any in the past - they all had a blast. At the end of the day, that's what we are looking to keep on doing. Also, the education of enthusiasts to the art of overclocking at the World Tour is a key dimension to the events and a massive success.
For Montreal, as for the previous WT events. If anyone is willing to learn XOC, or make a first jump, this event is for you.
Also let me know if you need help, we've got some CPUs you can borrow on site, and it's no problem to figure out solutions to find containers if you don't have any.
Also sharing this thread on OCN for the alternative Dreamhack event in Montreal : HWBOT World Tour Overclocking Competition - Montreal 2017 - I'm also monitoring that one.
