Can extreme guys play? With ambient cooling ofc...

yes, everybody can participate but with ambient temps... no chillers, TECs,... or such allowed. Our initial rule proposal was to use a stock Corsair AIO.

Now I'm praying no major hw release inside the competition timeframe, so I have time off work to have fun in the comps :D

Btw, I haven't seen platform/cpu restriction for this, so any DDR4 cpu/platform (as long as its retail) might join?

If I have some time I will get a few subs in. Probably wont win anything, but I like joining in when I have time. I have an old 4000 kit with e die and some newer stuff with cjr. Neither can compete with good b die though.

Olympic principle peeps, submit in all 3 stages and you are already in for the lucky draw raffle...

Yes as long as it is a DDR4 platform sporting Corsair memory sticks you are fine ( no ES hardware/bios ), but you must use the SAME platform in all 3 stages.
