Hey guys, just thought I would spread the word.

June 2nd a number of guys from XtremeSystems.org are getting together @ the MC in norther NJ.

If you live near and want to meet up with some others from EOC, XS, [H], PCACPEX, and or other forums, possibly witness a front page ORB run, then here is the info, and hope to see you there.

Here is the Original Post:

I'll be assembling my benching rig on a custom Danger Den Torture Rack bearing the Xtreme Systems logo for the event. EVGA has contributed a 680i board that we've volt modded as well as a kickin set of 8800GTX's that we've also volt modded and are scaling quite nicely. We'll have some LN2 cooling on the GFX cards courtesy of Iron Mods and either Chilly1 will have my cascade to me by then or we'll be running a phase driven water chiller for the QX6700 quad core CPU courtesy of n00b of l337. Link to see the "Golem" chiller here. I'll also be running a DD supplied water loop for the NB/SB featuring a GTX 240 rad, a D5 pump and DD Maze 4 NB/SB blocks. Corsair will be adding the icing on the cake with a set of their Dominator PC2 10000 2x1gb kits.

I'd love to see a contingent of XS'ers up there to enter this contest and/or hang out for the day. I know Jake (Cpt planet) will be there with a rig (or two) as will INJ Viper, and Phelan1777. Can anyone else make it? Please chime in so I can petition for swag for everyone!!

I will be posting a work log of my progress in assembling the rig, adding in the LN2 pots, testing it out, etc here so stay tuned.

I went to an event similar to this... At a microcenter in Houston.

No1 special was there i think, it was just microcenter employees.

My dad made me go or he wouldn't let me build my PC... This was like 3 years ago.

Anyways it was a complete waste of time. The guy was like "Building your own PC is neither cost effective nor easy. You are better off buying a pre built one"
And i was like ***?
All they did was show us how to use that anti static wristband, and said to be careful.
It was the stupidest thing ever

Maybe this one will be different..
