There will be an Ln2 event in March 2012 held in the University City of Cambridge. Dates 17 - 18 March 2012 Check in on the 16th

There will be a Live stream with multiple cameras and commentary from our hosts on Overclock.net Justin TV Channel for both days so pencil it in your diaries folks.

There are 18 Overclockers attending, many of whom are coming to learn and bench Liquid Nitrogen for the first time. It should make for an interesting livestream for those looking to learn a little from the class and see what this is all about. Things will get seriious when the competition takes place between the Pros!

Planned Itinerary - the event will be catering for first timers as well as the more experienced LN2 bencher's.

served with pubs. In 1597 there were 80 ale houses, although this was reduced to 50 because too much corn was being used for ale instead of bread! By 1749 the number had risen to 156 inns and pubs, serving a population of 10000. Today, the 110 pubs serve a population of around 125000, an average of 1136 people per pub.
Event Venue - The Boathouse

Vantage 11 Contest

To assist UK bencher's in their preparation for global benching competitions a Vantage11 contest will be held on the morning of the second day.
Three hours will be allocated for the event in line with international event standards.
Hardware limitations will be discussed closer to the time of the event and will be dependent on the types of hardware used.
Manufactures have expressed a great interest in the outcome of this event I might add.

If you aren't so fussed about scores and more interested in getting an understanding of how the process of LN2 benching goes, pick up some cheap crap on Ebay

For those doing the LN2 101 course there will be kit provided for the duration of the event. Do not expect to get £900 CPU and £500 GPU's but what you will be benching with will earn you valuable points and more importantly experience.

You most certainly can - so I take it you are thinking of participating in the Vantage contest then?

This is a good way to start building your confidence and skill levels. And the way that most of us started benching. I have only in the last little while started buying new kit. Before then every bit of kit I had was second or third hand.
