    Fatboynotsoslim and I are headed out to Taipei for our first trip to Computex. Looking to be a solid week of overclocking and partying!

    Heading there to compete in the Hwbot World series where we'll be competing with other overclockers from around the world competing with next-gen Intel parts.

    I was wondering if someone was going to share some coverage for us.

    You realiZe that LN2 board is probably not allowed (ES). Asrock MOCF for you.

    The times should be pretty good for us actually. I think it will work to 1600 EST. Would also like to see the GSkill stage.

    It's ok, we're coming there and we can hassle you in person ;)

    I have a thick black paste in my luggage that's fit for this purpose, a real introduction to Australian cuisine.

    Well Ive arrived (probably could have updated sooner) the Hwbot event starts tomorrow so I've been shopping and sightseeing. Caught up with Team Au, Sofos & Vivi on Saturday night, great to see old friends and meet new ones. Media parties on tonight for Asus, Thermal Grizzly, Hwbot, Gigabyte and Corsair, so will meet lots of new faces tonight and hopefully remember some the next morning!
