    Well this looks interesting, it's just a shame that I have no experience in PR.

    Ryan, is there any chance you could ask your HR a question for me (or even us on the forums)?

    Basically, I want to know if there's any possibility at all of working from home. I have a media background in the sense that I write motherboard reviews. I would gladly take a pay hit if it could be done from home, if that would in any way aid the possibility of it happening. :)

    I used to be a journalist too (HEXUS/bit-tech) and that was my first thought, I wanted to work from home but it isn't an option I'm afraid. You may be able to negotiate working from home a day (or two at a push) a week but really the job requires you to be in the office to manage samples/stock and there's a lot of coordination with other staff members and such.

    I have been a tech journalist for six years. I am the founder of overclockerstech(dot*(com) have worked with and for DFI Lanparty and Universal abit. In addition I have been fortunate enough to have the Universal ABIT Overclocking champion 2006 award and placed second in the gigabyte GOOC contest in 2010.

    I also hold a PRINCE 2 Project management qualification

    I was once part of a team including Oscar Wu, Jarry Chang, Jimmy Su whom worked on the DFI Lanparty series and references of such CAN be provided!

    I am also the gentleman whom used to work for Lamptron whom came up with the idea for the FC10 SE and helped a little with the design of.

    Currently I 'rep' for Innovation Cooling IC-Diamond so I would like to think my knowledge of technical hardware is extreme.

    I am willing to relocate from Yorkshire also.

    Satisfactory references can be supplied from DFI (whom still make server boards) Innovation Cooling, Lamptron, HBT+ and many other manufacturers.
