Well Im one of the 12 going to this event. I cant say how excited I am to be going.
Im looking forward to meeting other Atomicans there, not to mention learning some epic overclocking tips from some of the best.

Post here if you are going to this event.

PS Thankyou Atomic / Gigabyte and Team-AU, Ive seen many events via the Atomic magazine but have never been to one. I was so surprised to see this coming to Perth.

I'll be thee too mate, and will also be looking to pickup a few tips from the team.au guys. Should be a good day, it's nice to see something happen in Perth too. Edit: looks like you might need to check over at OCAU to see who else is going. Chances are they are not members here.

Im fairly new to overclocking myself but this is a chance to learn from the best :D. I know the basics but will be just as lost on AMD gear (INTEL FTW). Its going to be a big day for me, I will have to leave around 7am to get there in time. The next 2 weeks are going to go so slow lol. Ive also been trying to contact LAN World, Need to know about acsess as Im in a wheelchair. Ive looked at the street pics via google maps, I can get in the front door, just need to know what its like inside. Anyways Ive signed up on OCAU but just waiting for admin to give posting rights.

FTFY. :)

Not sure if David will be there, but I think unco_tomato will be, and there should indeed be some nice prizes up for grabs.
Hopefully someone with a camera will grab some decent pics too (i'll be doing my best to avoid them though :P)
