If somebody has a solid am3 mobo I can throw in an expendable phenom II x2 555 that we can do try for some suicide overclocks on.

I believe the one I have sitting in my drawer has all 4 cores functional.

Oh My Goodness, I am so looking forward to this!
I've always wanted to do something like this, but my mobo is a pos for overclocking, can't even hold an overvolt..

Too bad my rig is having issues right around now, classified x58, 920 and some 2000mhz ram could've pushed some limits. I will try to make it out after my class on campus Thursday.

Sorry Jody, I wont be able to attend. I was willing to make the drive and couch-crash, but my powers-that-be have slated a meeting at 8am, and getting up at 4ish to drive home after a late night benching doesnt seem like a bright idea :(

I hope to see more of these though, and will definitely try to make the next one!

If you are on campus anyway, you have to swing by

Absolutely bring a camera. There are really no rules here.

This is just a casual thing with a bunch of people hanging out enjoying some benching and geek talk.

So what can those of us who haven't been to an event like this expect? Just chillaxin and benching?

Also what about internet access/wifi for people who bring laptops?
