Hmm, i33 looks very tempting, shame i cant really afford to go :( (and the "use their computer" deal looks aweful, so BYOC adds the hassle of dragging my PC down there)

BTW, is it just me or is their site really badly made, any time you click the "click here for more info" it takes you to the main page :(

Extreme overclocking is actually pretty interesting to watch. For the first 5 minutes atleast :) I saw a glimpse of that at Campusparty. All the expensive hardware on the table.... I still see dreams of that.
