Hey all.<br><br>
Just curious to know when we can expect things to start happening. I know Chipp is busy filtering through applications and all, but I was just looking for a timeframe. If we don't have one thats cool, I'm just trying to get a plan worked out in my head of things I might need!

I think EK Derick has "Soon" trademarked, so Chip will need to use something else here <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Might be a mild understatement.

This is why we need copyright and trademark reform, right here. <img alt="rolleyes.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif"><br><br>
On a serious note, I have a few products on offer from Corsair. Just waiting for final confirmation that they have set aside hardware samples for us (which is taking a bit longer than I'd hoped) and we'll be officially ready to go. We're also in discussions with Patriot, and I'm preparing some manufacturer-specific communication to reach out to various reps who have contacted us regarding reviews in the past now that we have a formal program in place (and some sample content from you guys as examples of previous work).

I guess I can say that Corsair has let me know that they'll sponsor me on my folding farm, told me what I'd have, but I have yet to hear any news from them again. From what I understand, all decisions needs to come from head management at Corsair and it takes quite a bit to get any answer from them. I don't know who specifically you were in contact with, but I exchanged with Joseph by email and this is the feeling I got.

My dealing with them was about the same. It took 3 months or so to get my stuff. Joseph had to take my concept to George and others before allowing it to be done.

It was about the same for my 5 RMA's I've had with them. Eugh. But I guess this is something we might be able to say in the reviews? <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/wink.gif">

My contact is Rick, their Director of PR, so I hoped I'd get to skip a bit of the bureaucracy - but we'll see. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">

We've been getting our administrative ducks in a row and the holiday weekend in the US slowed things a bit - but this week is all about proactive outreach to partners. A couple of you guys have sent over some additional contacts, and I greatly appreciate that. I promise I'm actually working on your behalf. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">

Though it certainly took a little bit longer than expected, the first review samples to become available are now listed in their section. My outreach to vendors continues this weekend, we should have more to follow soon.

FYI, Patriot is officially onboard and we are in discussions with Gigabyte. I'm still chasing down Corsair. My outreach to other brands never really got off the ground, I'm actually sending those messages tonight - pardon the delay, my day job has been consuming more than its fair share of time recently so I've been running a bit ragged. I'm trying to recruit some additional help with this program from our friendly management team. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">
