    hey guys/gals,

    Dinos22 and youngpro will be at the RELOADED Lan party on the 16th and 17th of January. As some of you know youngpro is a resident of Adelaide and we are flying Dinos22 down from Sydney. We will also have some of our local mates their for the event! I had the opportunity to do this a few years ago when I worked for Asstech computers, and will be fun to do it again!

    We will have 160-200 litres of Liquid Nitrogen for the couple days and a mean set of hardware to make cold.

    Something like as follows.

    * Intel Gulftown and Clarkdale processors.
    * Gigabyte X58A-UD7, P55-UD6 and other associated motherboards
    * 5970 and/or 5870 graphics cards
    * GSKILL memories
    * WD/GSKILL Storage

    I would also like to build a system with a few high end games, cooled with a subzero cooler (single stage or cascade) and heavily overclocked. This system can be used by anyone during the even to check out how the latest games are when your playing them on a heavily overclocked system. (Hopefully more gaming than bluescreening will take place there)

    I would like to forthank our sponsors who at this stage are Gigabyte and GSKILL for the event. Of course also all our person sponsors like Gigabyte, GSKILL, Corsair, Antec, Sapphire, DFI... For making this event possible.

    I am hoping to convince Gigabyte to send me down a board or two for a couple of give aways at the event also.

    Might add some stuff later if I forget!

    it was great to meet everyone during the event,

    80TB+ of storage, thats insane man...

    thanks aeth, wookie, pugs and all the organizers for helping me out at various times during the event... thanks to gigabyte, gskill, amd and intel for making this happen! thanks OF COURSE to dino, tuchan (benching, audio equipment, smoke machine), uncle fester(keyboard/mouse, benching, food), bobnz for coming down and benching, ALOT of fun... cheers to neil for having the 480 litres of LN2 on standby! thanks to rhys and his friends for getting us files, games and pouring ln2 for us as required!

    ill get the pictures from everyone but we had a good time, used alot of LN2, did some things we would never do at home like run platforms on ln2 for people to play crysis on...

    i did not run a benchmark that whole weekend, i seemed like every time i went to do it i had another task to do!

    sorry guys about the 3dmark01 competition, i set the target at 60,000, i am a little out of touch with benching 3d01 on air cooling... next year we will have a competition that everyone in the building can win..

    biggest feedback? next time we need a keyboard/mouse and monitor sponsor so we can have proper gaming on our systems. apparantly 17" and RITMO keyboard/mouse isnt good for Crysis? WTF
