Looks cool and I'm interested but don't think it will happen for me. Haven't been interested in a LAN since QCon 2011 when I stopped going to em but DreamHack always looked good.

Didn't realize that tickets were going that fast. Jumped on the byoc founders pass. We need to get a list of who all is going from [H] to try to meet up or something.

I also picked up a pair of BYOC founders passes. Would be cool to coordinate seating for the early reserve system.

I listed CS:GO as my preferred game.

Hey, I'm not sure how many folks attending from [H] attending DH in Austin are looking to play CS:GO but I'd love to get some early games in to get a feel for the group.

I'm currently LE and my friend coming with is floating around MG (but progressing). Hit me up on Steam if you would be interested.

My primary steam account is "Mulnic".

Regular pass ticket holder (BYOC) will get there value codes sent out on the Jan 15th. I assume that means non-founders can reserve seating at that date.

Does anyone have an educated guess on what the ambient temperature will be in the BYOC area? I'm planning on building a new SFF rig in the Ncase M1 chassis and debating air or watercooling (AIO). I'd need to remove the AIO and place it in checked baggage if I went that route.

Excellent, thanks for the info.

My biggest issue at the moment is figuring out what I want to do about a monitor. I could probably bring my old Acer GD235HZ as carry-on but that is going to be pretty tight. What do other folks who travel by air typically do regarding their displays?

LOL. I bought an itx board and case just for the event, but I didn't realize how big the case was. Granted I slapped in a 2x120mm and 120mm radiators from my cpu and a 295x2. I am however very happy with it. For as much as the case cost, it is one of the most thought out cases I have ever owned. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68jj4ANjKGA
