Lol Yeah I know what we have in mind is a long as heck ride back from Toronto to Grand forks North dakota in a train.... 45 hour trip....... and get back tuesday. I don't think Delta airlines will let me bring my 100lb computer onto the plane. but I can fit all the parts in my backpack easily. Would I be able to bum a ride form the airport to the event lol.

That shouldn't be an issue depending on timing. If it's the day of the event, then there would be room after getting the stuff set up at the event and I drop off Crash and Sniper obviously. Would arrive there early to set up anyway.

Of course, then there's the way back to the airport/train station to worry about, I'd not be able to fit anyone else after it's all packed up again.

Anyone who actually lives in the Toronto area got enough car room to help this poor guy out?

In all seriousness I would not recommend this. Toronto is as close to NYC as it gets in canada.

LN2 Cooking Heck yeah! I still have a business card from them last time, they were awesome!
Good internet! with a local cache (so we can read OCN in relative ease, and the same patch isn't downloaded 20x) - this will help keep the internet clear for uploads/streams
LAN Vs. abroad (some of our community are not going to be able to attend for legitimate distance issues, so lets bring the party to them, using our OCN game servers, etc biggrin.gif)

LAN Games:
Counter Strike Source (sorry, not a fan of GO)
League of Legends (more then Mario Kart this time please!)
TF2

Pickups:
Minecraft
L4D (1&/2)
DayZ
PlanetSide 2? (need bandwidth)
etc.

To bench or play LoL with you guys all day! Uuuuuuuuuuuugh

Sorry for the double post expected someone else to have posted by now. My bad!

I had problems fitting them on my Rampage IV Extreme. They fans from the top card would always rub on the backplate of the 2 card.

We just used random things as spacers. If I recall, paper towels were the most popular choice lol.

Here are two photos from the AMD Event in Toronto:
