    Hey guys,

    The time has come around again (we just held one in Perth) for us to invite you all into our Sydney office for some LN2 overclocking with Team AU, along with some competitive gaming with Team Immunity (yes, you can play against them!).

    If LN2, Pro gaming and free food seem like something of interest to you, feel free to visit our competitions page and follow the instructions. Entry is simple, just fill out the form on our website, then email me your 3D Mark 11 scores along with your name. At this point any score in between 3.5K-9K (remember you can use any 3DMark 11 settings and resolutions you want) is pretty likely to come along.

    Please post any questions you have about the event in here, I will check back on it regularly.

    Can't wait to see you guys there.

    It is possible that we will be doing one in Melbourne at some point, but we can't promise anything. Venue hire is expensive, which is why we are doing it at Atomic HQ.

    I believe so, it's worth applying anyway.

    The "grown ups" will likely grab a few beers at some point after the event as there just happens to be a pub roughly 30 meters walk from the office, but I can't see why minors wouldn't be allowed into our building (unless there is an insurance issue).

    Just fill out the application, no harm in that :)

    Good. While they're out getting drunk, I might just swindle away a kit of Dominator GT's and a 3960X. :D

    I swear to god more people have the 3960X than the 3930K...

    You know if you had any real Sydney hardcore atomican's we'd be here. But all us cool cats are in QLD.

    what a joke. I don't hear 14 year olds in QLD overclocking. No where near hardcore as us New South Welshmen.

    Well, we filled positions for our QLD rather quickly, this Sydney event is quiet as a mouse.

    Also, I think we're using Team RAM, not Corsair, but that is not confirmed yet. Depends if Dinos22 and Gigabyte have a preference.

    Also if it makes anyone extra keen, we will be using 3770K's.

    I won't mind taking a batch of those home. Any prizes, or is it just the opportunity of meeting these blokes and sharing a drink and general experience? (coke)

    Doubt I'd be allowed to go, stupid exams.

    Didn't you end up winning that ram? :p

    Went to the W.A event, this is a great opportunity guys so snap it up. TeamAU are great guys and have a lot to give to the overclocking community.
