2010 Tiger Direct Build a PC Charity Race:
This year OCC again made a strong presence at the annual Tiger Direct PC Build Race. Frank "CCokeman" Dimmick was the contestant this year and he did a very good job. The contest was to put together a computer following the steps provided, aiming for the fastest time. Last year CCokeman finished in 6th place, however this year he made a stronger stand and took 5th place, putting OCC in the top five finishers. Congrats goes out to him, while below you can find some pictures from the event.
Xtreme Systems Party:
The OCC crew made a pit stop at the XtremeSytems party on Saturday and were treated to a night of bonding while making a few hot laps around the Pole Position indoor Go Kart track. It turns out that the brits can drive, as they posted some of the fastest times in the group. Bosco on the other hand made up for speed with volume, as I think he clocked the most laps of the night by the OCC staff. Later into the night he had plenty of racing with Robert from Corsair and Brent from AMD.
While there was plenty of racing going on there was plenty of action going on at the overclocking demonstrations. Some of the biggest names in the business were on hand to show off their skills, with even a world record being set with a Core i3 processor running in excess of 6.5GHz. Not to be out done, the AMD camp was running some righteous clocks trying to get a pair of HD 5970s running stable at 1050MHz on the core under LN2. EVGA was even on hand showing off a dual socket 1366 board that may or may not see the light of a production day. Oh the potential!
Thanks to Fugger for putting on the event, it was a blast!
