    Brian, so there is a chance of randomly selecting say a 2600k CPU and an AMD Crosshair V motherboard? I think it would be more beneficial to group the chips with the boards they coincide with but thats your call . Just to let everyone know to be prepared and probably a good idea to just bring the gear you plan to use.

    Very excited to meet you guys and see some familiar faces again.
    there are only 2 crosshair v boards. you can trade it with someone during the event, or save the board and use it when you get home. i know at least 3-4 people that want the amd board so im sure they wouldnt mind trading it. we will have NO amd chips being given away since intel is the platinum cpu sponsor.

    @ Brian Splave has a good point you should consider pairing up CPU and mobo's.
    trust me itll work out. 2 crosshair boards are going to be paired with intel cpus either way. we dont have amd cpus to pair and we wont either way. frys is 20 ft away if you want to get a cpu, but there are a few select amd guys that will want to bench and bring their own gear. this is why i said bring your own gear.

    Here's my entry for the case mod contest;
    It's called "Red Dwarf" due to the ROG color scheme (Red/Black) and its compact/efficient design.
    By cutting out the larger "fat" features of current case designs (optical drive bays, 3.5" hard drives, tower-style HSF),
    I shrunk the size of the system down by only fitting what I see as performance-essential modern core components:
    uATX motherboard and CPU, full-size ATX power supply, can fit 13.25" video card, 2.5" SSD, 2x 240mm watercooling radiators.
    For reference, the outside of the case is only about 1" taller than an ATX motherboard's longest dimension...

    See build-log here: Project-Red-Dwarf

    Its got a mATX ASUS Maximus III Gene motherboard, Intel i7-860 @ 4.x Ghz, 4GB DDR3-2200, HD5870 GPU, internally watercooled with 2x 240mm radiators, CPU and GPU blocks by Swiftech, Antec 850W PSU and 256GB SSD.
    Internal red LED lighting intensity varies based on CPU load temperature, driven from PWM signal of the Maximus III Gene motherboard.





    Oh, and you can also switch between mini-tower (vertical) style and desktop (horizontal) computer without modification,
    the water cooling components are laid out to accomodate this.
    You can even switch on-the-fly/while it's running, although that makes me kind of nervous and there's not much point to switch it while running...
