LanParty Question

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I've only been to LanParties where I knew everyone and didn't have to worry about people taking my stuff. But at huge LanParties, how do people prevent others from taking hardware?

Some people mod their side panels with holes so they can fit a lock around it.

Impossible to do with my case

Or you just don't sleep and watch your stuff all night. People lugging boxes around usually are caught though. If you have a couple of buddies at the LAN in question, then you have your answer.

But usually non-thumb screws on all panels and a snowboard lock through the PCI slots is enough.

Yeah, usually you dont sleep at LAN parties, i never have problems at my LAN's (30+ ppl), any more than that and theres usually security. An easy way around this also is take cheap-0 hardware, games arent that intensive that you require to take a $1k rig.
