And last but not least.

Awards and final wrap.

Coolest outfit of the day. And future fashion trend.

Most dedicated bencher I have ever seen. Winner of the OCN award for excellence.

700

Man I am exhausted from the contest

400

Our winner of the contest. Driftingforlife, being presented a Motherboard by Andrew official Gigabyte representative who flew over from Europe especially to attend. Sick as a dog but not a word of complaint from him. Cheers to you and cheers to Gigabyte for their outstanding support of what we are trying to achieve in the UK.

What do you mean there is more. Tom from Aria PC handing over some cool neon DDR3 ram to our winner from Team Monkey

I would like to thank one very important group of people. Those folks who made it all happen.

450


Thank you OCN, without your support and your assistance none of this would have been possible.

I have never enjoyed an event as much as I did these last three days. To those older (known) and to all the new friends, all eight of you wink.gif It has been my pleasure and privalage to meet up with you all and have a blast of a benching weekend. I would like to thank all the partners in this event, Gigabyte, Aria.PC, Intel and Team Great Britain and of course simply amazing OCN.

Thank you one and all.
