post #361 of 1025
Here is the post I put up in the Canada Day 2012 Attendees forum as we need to ensure the votes that are made are coming directly from the attendees.

Hey Everyone!

Sorry for the delay in getting this posted but here it is.

We tried to stick to the games that most people will have and some games that have already been listed as 'Abandonware'.

* Minecraft - This could be used to breakup some gaming sessions as we could hold building competitions with a set time and setup a panel of judges.

* BF3 - There is a big demand for BF3 but to help level the playing field a bit, it has been suggested that all players would start with a fresh soldier carrying a special Tag in the name that wouldn't be released until the event.

The other issue with BF3 is the lack of LAN capability. We would have to play on servers hosted outside of the LAN which may affect the gameplay.

* Starcraft 2 - Same concern as BF3 regarding LAN play.

Depending on the responses, we could either have the LAN split in half, where one half plays an FPS and the other could play a Strategy game or another FPS should the demand be there. Another option could be to run half day with one game and the other half with another.

I have left the poll open to multiple selections, but please limit your selections to 2 games or 3 at the very most.

If anyone has any feedback or issues they would like to address, please send me a PM and I'll bring it up with the gaming committee to ensure everything is addressed accordingly.

We want to ensure this will be a pleasurable event for everyone!

As far as the benching goes, how will this be done?

Would some of the 'pro' benchers be willing to sit with some 'newb' benchers such as myself and go through the process or will this be more a demonstration only kind of deal?

I don't know if this has been brought up or not, but there may be others like myself who are interested in giving this a go, but might be a bit leary to start dumping LN2 all over our gear wink.gif

I would guess this would be up to the pro's to see if they would be willing to sit with one or a small group and go through the process from start to finish?

Especially as there may be many that are interested, but not sure if they are willing to invest in a CPU pot, etc. They could bring their own gear (mobo/cpu/ram) etc. if someone would be perhaps willing to share some of the rest. (If they have extra parts laying around).

Just a thought as there may be a few out there who are just too afraid to ask and seem like the newb in front of everyone. tongue.gif

I've been wondering the same thing. I would be interested in giving it a shot, but honestly don't know enough to be comfortable competing and would like someone who knows what they're doing to maybe just kinda help out.

Hey Slaughter thanks for posting this here as I don't have access to that thread (I am registered with 3 other guys but not on the list). As someone who doesn't have BF3 wouldn't TF2 be a better idea since it is F2P and easier to set up?

I'll wait for El Gappo to answer because he's organizing all of the benching, but I know that a lot of us who have experience with extreme cooling would be more than happy to show some newcomers the ropes.

Thanks HobieCat.

I'd assume there may be a few willing to take some time to teach some potential newcomers but I'm sure there will be a few who would rather focus all their time on their own overclocking. Hopefully something could be setup to teach us the ways of the pros but if not, I'm sure a lot can be learned simply through observation.

I myself have a Duniek Aluminum pot but I'm not sure if that would hold up with LN2 very well or if it would just mean that it'd be harder to sustain the lower temperatures unlike copper. Is it worth bringing?

(I grabbed it with the intentions to get into dice but haven't found a board worth benching)

It's true that aluminum pots aren't as good as copper pots, but it's definitely still worth bringing.

If someone wants to sit in I am more then happy to help teach the "Ins and outs" of getting into Extreme cooling. Only problem I see is having enough gear or prep gear to get someone else setup.

As far as prep gear goes, anyone can pick those supplies up fairly cheap. The pot is going to be the hardest but as I intend to do some lanning, I'd be more than willing to let a noob use mine for part of the time as well.

If we spent some time prepping the boards together, part way through the session I could swap out with another noob who wants to give it a go, but does not have a pot. It's not the greatest as I mentioned, however, the processes are all the same.

We definitely want to do an ln2 class like we did at the last UK meet thumb.gif

As far as pots go there "should" be a few spares floating around but am not sure how many.
One gear, GO!
