[O/C]2011 XtremeSystems CES Party


Quote:
This year was my first attending CES, and I took the opportunity while in town to join Fugger and his gang of miscreants at the XS party to enjoy some good company, warm food, cold drinks, and frozen processors. While this wasn’t an Overclockers.com event, I’m happy to cover it as thanks to Fugger for the hospitality and as thanks from the Overclocking community for a great event.

... Return to article to continue reading.

Additionally, as a special feature for this article, we'll hold a beauty contest here. Registered forum members please vote on the following contestants in the poll above!

I proudly present to you, contest number 1 - Cory:


With much regret, I present beauty contestant number 2 - V2-V3:

If you talking about the nitrogen tank in pic 2 I think its a beauty. JK. I really need to try to make it to one of these event. I wish I could have made the Vegas event, especially where it was close.

All you benchers should be choosing the Ln2. Just the Ln2. Maybe this pic is better for benchers.
Cory was amazingly classy. Thanks Darth!

GREAT, and I mean great writeup!


You covered so many facets of what happened at the party, all the fun stuff and the great overclocking. Got all the players, and all the hardware. You wrote it in a great informal way, which will help others understand how big this really was.

A small industrial strip mall area far away from the big lights of the strip is where the action really happened.

Perfect! And no pics of me drunk, thats even better. I'm in a vid, but that's for folks to figure out. And yes, hard liquor was in that clip.

Thanks Matt, I'll have this link to show to friends. Good job!

It was a hard choice between the ROG T and the twins, but I have to go with the twins on this one... At least until I am able to get me a ROG Board.
