sorry Pieter, life doesn't allow me the luxury of benching these days, and even if it did; i don't have any MSI gear laying around. that is pretty much simply because i have had to decline all that has been offered. so needless to say, nothing coming from me anytime soon...someone else from Canuckistan is going to have to step up to the plate

Cmon guys the link is right there, how much easier do I have to make it for you. You probably won't be able to win it anyways. I know you see $10,000 and go OMGOOMGOMG but there's a reason why the prize is $10,000. Something you MAY be able to win would be a Big Bang mobo just for participating, which would be nice. Ya, I was expecting to see 3oh6 in this competition too. That sucks dude :(

Meh, too bad. I did wonder how come you were so incredibly inactive on XS. Wish you the best

Welcome to hwc pieter
Board: MSI Canada => ask => done

To be honest, I don't know why I never subscribed to the forums. HWC is one of the very few sites I actually read the articles from. Kudos on the site and articles!
