Well looks like I don't have time to source the requisite thermi cards and I don't have an extension plate for the chipset to get it out from under the gpus. So I'll just do 2d. I'd still like to borrow a mem pot and cpu pot if possible @funsouland if anyone would like to pour or provide insight into how best to use an evga x58 bios that will be much appreciated.

Same here. Testing platforms and a few last minute additions to my gpu collection. Cant forget the 1st year and needing to get a mobo from Keith, because the Z170OCF and X99OCF i brought were dead or borked.

Ugh...almost forgot to pack some neoprene, glue and shamwow. Will remember to bring the compressor, too.

PS- We're going to need a lot of extension cords so if folks can bring 'em, that'd be a big help.

Also...may have a dewar or 2 I can sell at the party...35L wide mouth and 35L or 25L regular...all in minty condition. PM me if interested otherwise I'll leave them home

Trying to finish packing...SO close now! :)

Aiming to arrive at the Sofitel around 3pm(ish). We should have access to the event space around 5pm for set up. Please bring some extension cords if you have some, we've gotta do some lo-o-o-ng runs.

If anyone wants my cell#, shoot me a pm. 

See ya's in a bit! :)

hehe....yeah...we'll see how many dead carcasses get left at the end of the weekend. Unfortunately, I'm adept at killing nice hardware :/

Thanks Allen! Wish you could be there but we'll do our best at having a good time :)

Awesome event!  It was great meeting everyone, and getting to do some benching at the same time.  Special thanks to funsoul for organizing the venue and sponsors, and steponz and Lochekey for running the competition.  And of course, thanks to Corsair for sponsoring the event.  Hope to see you all next year!

After a couple crazy weeks, finally starting to catch my breath.

The party was (imho, of course biased hehe) excellente!!!! Nice venue, good staff and everything went nicely. Great to see the regular crew again and meet quite a few new faces! :) We accessed the room around 5pm Thursday for setting up, hanging out and other fun things. Friday open benching was a blast. Sadly (but fortunately for us), Joe spent the day (most of the weekend actually) starring in Corsair videos, prepping x299's for the competiion and generally hanging out answering questions. Saturday's competition (planned by Joe and refereed by Lochekey) was awesome! 1-on-1 double elimination action with nice Corsair ram and AX1600i psus, Intel 7940X's and EVGA Dark boards. It was a long comp and it came down to yosarianlives and aerotracks in the final. aerotracks powered through and took the big win. Congrats to both for some great benching and thank you to Joe and Lochekey for planning and delivering a great competition!

Enormous thanks to Corsair and the team (Colin, Henry and Joey) for sponsoring this event for the 3rd year running!!! Really appreciate everything they've done for us! Thank you for bringing all the great Vengeance LPX 4400 and psus!! Also, thanks out to Intel for the tastey cpus and Jakob at evga for the badass Darks!

Will add some pics here in the coming days, hopefully others will, too. Here's the fb page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1071523912999632/

Thanks again to everyone who attended! You're what makes this awesome. :) Please share your subs and any cool pics!

-Stefan
