    This weekend we headed to Stoneleigh Park Warwickshire for i34, the UK's largest ever LAN party. We check out the attached Mfestival, ride mechanical bulls and belt out songs in Rock Band, as well as check out some of the more impressive equipment on display.

    :clap:

    Some really nice rigs there. Sadly we don't have any major LAN events like that here in Australia, however as of last year we have been starting to get a few more regular events in. Sadly they are all in a different state from me lol.

    Yeah I am from Adelaide mate.
    We have Valhalla LAN which happens once a year, you have to pre buy tickets like 12 months in advanced it's so popular. We also have StreetGeek LAN parties which are every fortnight but have limited space. Nothing compares to the size of the LANs in the USA and Europe though.

    I think they should do one at ExCeL - One half for the LANs, one half for the trade show.
    Plus I could actually drive there in a reasonable time.

    Looks like you had fun though Harry.

    Btw, on the last page, second to last picture, you say it is watercooling crammed into a shuttle. Its not a shuttle, its a Black Lian-Li v300 (V300b)
