    Cool Team IRONMODS - Wins the US Overdrive Championship

    Please review coverage located here.

    Most of the pictures published on THG were taken by me...here are some of my favorites.

    The Team assembles to do homework two nights before the competition:





    The Team assembles in the hotel room the night before the competition to continue homework assignment:



    El<(')>Maxi (G H Z) from OCF cheers on his team (Dawgdoc, sno.lcn, and rdrash)...who happened to be our toughest competition. The girl is Rita, the USA Gigabyte rep who decided to stop by. Some of the guys from OCF had recently met her at the Gigabyte event in Taiwan:

    Hey Peter,

    Haha yea definitely. Benched the two nights prior to the event on the board under ln2. It helped out alot but we still had issues with that board. If only we could have used the EVGA.

    Congratulations guys, seems like the extra homework really paid off.

    I'll just note that El<(')>Maxi is none other than G H Z here on XS.

    Well, my luggage got lost in Moskow, so I don't yet have my camera The folks over at the airport in Tokyo say they'll ship our things to our house and we should expect them on Saturday...I'll post an update then. Good news is I'm home safe and sound

    Thanks Charles, we took home all the gear we benched with (minus the CPU, monitor, & HDDs) split between the team members (true for all teams). And Our Team won a $5000 gift certificate to our online store of choice (split three ways of course).

    But of course, we did it for the fame...not the fortune
