Gigabyte Host Charity Raffle at Insomnia i54

Insomnia i54 is well under way now and to get things off to a great start, Gigabyte have been hosting a big charity raffle at the event, with the help of other sponsors such as AOC, HyperX, Antec and Tesoro. Tickets were £1 each, with enough tickets sold to fill out the main hall this afternoon for the prize draw.

Just check out some of the cool prizes below, X99 SOC Force motherboard from Gigabyte, an AOC Monitor, Antec chassis and a whole lot more!

The hall was packed with people eager to win, but also with those eager to support the charity, for which the raffle was held.


All the money raised from the raffle will be donated to Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice, so well done Gigabyte and everyone else involved in making this such a huge success!

NZXT and Ducky Booth at Insomnia i52

NZXT recently joined forces to offer gamers a great chance to get a special edition Ducky Shine 3.0 keyboard alongside the incredible NZXT H440 chassis. This partner ship seems to have lasted a while longer as both brands are on the same booth this year to show off their latest wares, these include the latest cases from NZXT such as the H440 and the 230, their new X31, X41 and X61 coolers, CAM and more. Meanwhile you’ll also find a massive range of Ducky keyboards, ranging from a few popular fan favourites, to their Ducky Shine 3.0.

There are a lot of keyboards on display, but most of the are just customised Shine 3.0 boards, showing you just how flexible mechanical keyboards can be in terms of design, especially focusing on the custom key caps. It’s also a great oppertunity for gamers to get hands on with a high-end mechanical keyboard, a nice thing for those who have yet to try one and to find out just why the cost so much more than membrane switch keyboards.

Minecraft at Insomnia i52

It might not have the size or the numbers that we see at Minecon, but Multiplays introduction of Minecraft to iSeries was one of the best things to ever happen to the event. The Minecraft exhibition is one of the biggest attractions here at the show and while it does appeal to all ages, it’s more common for families to come down with their kids to really get hands on with the game in a more social environment and learn about competitive eSports.

There have been loads of prizes given away, with many other competitions happing in and around the Minecraft featured events. The crowds are constantly enjoying this section of the show and there are always plenty of people either playing or waiting in line to jump in on the action.

If you’re a Minecraft fan or you want to see what all the fuss is about, then stop by and take part in the festivities.

In Win 707 Series Chassis at Insomnia i52

The In Win booth was a little busy last time we visited it, but they’ve been nice enough to move their S-Frame build nearer the front of the booth for us to take a couple of extra pictures and also take a closer look at some of the features on their new 707 series of chassis. The 707 isn’t entirely new, they’re in fact the GT1 and GR-One chassis with a couple of new panels. This is no bad thing, the GR-One was awesome, but the new aluminium finish front panel and 5.25″ drive bay door look stunning and the top panel has been revised to allow for better water and air cooling support.

The GT1 has been given a similar treatment, a new front and top panel that really brings them up to date and I can’t wait to take a closer look at both of them in a featured review in the coming weeks, when we’ll also be bringing you a review of their upcoming £250 mini-ITX chassis, the D-Frame Mini.

Stay tuned for more and enjoy the pictures below!

Borderlands, League of Legends and Evolve at Insomnia i52

There are loads of gaming booths setup here at Insomnia i52, which obviously should go without saying given that this is a gaming event after all! jagex are here with their new Transformers game, Gearbox have brought along Borderlands: The Pre Sequel and League of Legends have a huge gaming setup, but most popular of all is Evolve. Evolve and Borderlands are commanding big waiting lines, but everyone seems happy to wait for a go on the games. Unfortunately we couldn’t get in to take pictures of the new games, as any attempt to photograph the screens resulted in some angry looks from the developers, but a few games on Borderlands and Evolve were enough to convince me that they’ll be two of the biggest selling games this year.

The League of Legends stand was run by Riot and had plenty of Corsair rigs running for gamers to sit down and try out the game, given the popularity of LoL here at the show, it’s nice for people to be able to see what all the fuss was about between the big money tournaments and eSports teams who are competing on this game over the weekend.

Cooler Master and CM Storm Booth at Insomnia i52

Cooler Master have one of the biggest booths here at the show, not only have they brought along a wide range of chassis products ranging from their budget friendly N200 right up to their behemoth HAF Stacker and Cosmos II, but they’ve also brought along a huge range of gaming peripherals from their CM Storm range.

One of the most interesting new products here is the soon to be release Toper switch keyboard, a flagship product for CM Storm and one that has been highly anticipated due to its ultra premium switch technology, it won’t be cheap, but it’s already turning heads in the industry.

Their rigs are setup for people to sit down and play some games, but it’s their keyboard demo that’s really drawing the crowd. You have to strike all the keys on one of their Aluminium series keyboard as fast as possible and set a time, those who rank well will be walking away with plenty of cool prizes.

CCL Computers at Insomnia i52

CCL are one of the UKs top computer retailers and they’ve become one of the most popular booths here at iSeries due to their long lasting presence at the show. Not only are they on hand to offer a great range of products at special trade show prices, such as discounts on a range of Cooler Master peripherals, but they’ve also got competitions, games to play, rigs to try out and of course their legendary iSeries T-shirts, which are unique and highly desired at every show.

The team have been working hard and their booth has been packed all weekend, most likely thanks to it being the very first booth as you walk through the door. If you have chance to stop by and check out their playable gaming PCs, I highly recommend it and don’t forget to ask for your free T-shirt before they run out!

Chillblast at Insomnia i52

Chillblast are back at iSeries once again and they’ve brought along some of their latest gaming systems for you to try out on their booth. Most interesting of all their stuff has to be one of their little gaming laptops it’s hooked up with a couple of controllers for people to play Street Fighter, and given the competitive gaming nature of this show, it’s proving very popular.

They’ve also got a very nice triple monitor setup with a racing wheel, a real treat for those who can only dream of owning such a setup and anyone is welcome to sit down and play a few laps. If that’s not your thing then you can also try out many of today’s latest games on their AMD 295×2 gaming rig which has been fitted inside the lovely Aerocool DS Cube chassis.

If you’re at the show, make sure you take time to stop by this booth and check them out!

The Legendary Insomnia i52 Pub Quiz [Gallery]

We stopped by the legendary Insomnia pub quiz at i52. Multiplay are well known for their crazy antics at the quiz, a good laugh for those at the show and for those taking part / watching on the live stream. We know many eTeknix readers are at the show this weekend, so I put my beer down for long enough to whip around with the camera and see how many of you we could find, enjoy!

Gigabyte Booth at Insomnia i52

Gigabyte are no stranger to Insomnia events and we’re very happy to see them back again at this years show. They’ve brought along some of their latest and greatest products for everyone to get hands on with and try out and their booth is buzzing with activity and things to do.

One of the biggest draws for the Gigabyte booth is their Lego set. You can take part in their little competition and build one of their latest motherboards using the most popular toy in the world. Now I’m all for building motherboards with Lego (wouldn’t be the first time either!), but I’m not sure what’s more popular with the crowd, the fact that it’s a Gigabyte board, or the fact that they simply get to play with Lego, tough call. If that’s not your cup of tea, then they’ve also got a Gigabyte branded table football setup, games such as Plants Vs Zombies (more popular that you might think and a whole lot more, so drop by the booth and check it out as it’s a great chance to get on with some high-end gaming laptop, multi-monitor gaming rigs and other cool gadgets.

Of course you’ll also be able to check out their latest products and get information from the team who are on hand to answer any questions. Here’s hoping they’re back at i52, so long as they bring more Lego!

XFX and Eclipse Computers Booth at Insomnia i52

XFX and Eclipse computers are sharing a pretty cool booth here at Insomnia i52, it’s packed full of awesome gaming rigs from Eclipse Computers in a wide range of chassis such as the NZXT H440, the InWin 904 and the Aerocool DS Dead Silence Cube, giving visitors to the booth a great chance to see the kind of builds and quality they offer in their rigs.

They’ve got a triple  monitor gaming PC with a racing wheel setup too, but unfortunately for the XFX team someone got crazy and snapped the clams on the wheel, leaving it out of commission for a while… I didn’t even get a go on it before it broke!

They’ve rolled out their truly unique Type 01 Bravo chassis, the build is nothing fancy, but it does feature the gargantuan Radeon R9 295X2, a card that never fails to impress. While also having a range of XFX products such as their popular PSUs on display for you to come and check out.

Tesoro Booth at Insomnia i52

Tesoro are easily one of my all time favorite gaming brands, they’ve got a range of awesome and rather unique peripherals that to me, really stand out from the crowd. They’ve got a tidy little booth setup in the middle of the hall where you can get hands on with their headsets such as the Kuven 7.1, as well as their range of peripherals such as the Lobera Supreme, Tizona and more.

Not only that, but you can also buy these products from their booth, with some tasty trade show discounts too! That being said, there may be discounts, there may be great peripherals for you to try out and the staff on the booth are certainly polite and helpful… but they have free balloons! If free balloons aren’t enough to get you to the booth, nothing will be.

Razer Booth at Insomnia i52

We stopped by the Razer booth at Insomnia i52 to check out their latest gaming hardware and play some games. The Razer booth certainly stands out from the crowd here at iSeries, it’s pretty hard to ignore a giant green and black double decker bus inside a building. The Gamer Bus as it is know is proving pretty popular with the crowd and people are waiting patiently to get inside and play on the many gaming rigs that have been packed inside it.

Those not eager to get on a bus and play games can check out the main booth, packed to the brim with the latest Razer peripherals and it’s a great opportunity to get hands on with them as it can often be tricky to try things out if you generally shop online. The Razer team are also on hand to give out advise on their products and run you through the features, a great learning opportunity for those that don’t know their membrane from the Cherry MX.

Finally we’ve got the mini Razer stage, great for pulling up a chair and enjoying some of the tournaments here at the show. If you’re at the show, you can’t miss the Razer booth, so stop by and have some fun!

MSI Booth at Insomnia i52

The MSI booth has been really busy this weekend, so we stopped by to check out what all fuss was about. The first thing you’ll see is this massive MSI box Jenga, pretty self explanatory and certainly a lot of fun to play around with.

There are loads of awesome gaming PCs on display for you to try out and play some great games.

There are a load of prizes to be won, bargains to be found both in and around the booth.

 

A pair of high end gaming rigs setup, the one on the left is the MSI Nightblade, the rig on the right is a custom build courtesy of Tom Logan (TTL).

Anyone is free to take a turn on these rigs, play a few laps and set the fastest time they can, with prizes being given to those who come out on top.

Another one of the many custom Parvum rigs at this weekends show, this one comes with dual stacked front rads and is of course fitted with MSI components.

:eague of Legends tournament, drop by, play a few rounds, perhaps win some awesome MSI branded SteelSeries headsets.

Their flagship GT72 gaming laptop, this is a brand new system from them and it is an absolute beast!

 


There is still a lot more coverage from this weekends show to come, so stay tuned for even more!

Kingston & iiyama Booth at Insomnia i52

It looks like iiyama and Kingston have joined forces this year for a shared booth, although in fairness this whole booth is a shrine to many other brands too, with OCUK, Cube, NZXT, Team Dignitas and more having products strutting their stuff around it.

The booth is kitted out with high-end gaming rigs and they’ve got their eSports team lined up here on Hyperx / iiyama equipped systems, doing what they do best, play games!

A custom Hyper X Parvum chassis.

4K monitors hooked up to high-end rigs, what’s not to love!

Some fun and games.

Check back shortly as we’ll have even more coverage from this weekends event here in Coventry.

PC Specialist Booth at Insomnia i52

Time to check out the booth of the awesome PC Specialist, they’ve rocked up with their latest gaming rigs for lucky punters to try out. They’ve got loads of high-end gaming PCs as well as a wide collection of high-end gaming laptops running many of the latest games for you to stop by and try out.

Obviously PC Specialist sell systems which can be made to order, but this booth is a great chance to find out how well they perform and see what this company is all about. They’re also running some competitions on the booth, so if you get chance to stop by, we highly recommend you do.

That’s everything from the PC Specialist booth for now, but check back later as we will have more great coverage from this weekends event.

InWin Booth at Insomnia i52

Here we are at the InWin booth at Insomnia i52 and they’ve rolled out their latest and greatest products for everyone at the show to checkout and enjoy. Most notable is the S-Frame in the back, the D-Frame and their soon to be released D-Frame Mini chassis.

They’ve got plenty of games running on their rigs for people to stop by and play, while they’re on the booth they can learn about who InWin are and what products they have right now. Some really nice builds on show here and well worth checking out if you’re at the show.

That’s everything from the InWin booth for today, check back shortly as we bring you even more coverage from this weekends event.

Indie Zone booth at Insomnia i52

One of the more unique attractions here at Insomnia i52 was the Indie Zone, a collection of smaller gaming areas where smaller developers have chosen to setup everything from Oculus Rift to consoles for people to come and play their latest games or in development projects.

There are a lot of very weird and wonderful games to try out, but it’s well worth stopping by and trying them out, especially for those seeking a break from the AAA blockbusters that dominate much of the event and I highly recommend you stop by this section just to try out the Oculus Rift DK2, any excuse to play with one is a good excuse.

If you want to take time and speak with the developers about the games on display, they’ve got plenty of time for you and we’ve had a lot of fun trying out these fun little titles, many of which we expect are already available on services such as Steam.

Enjoy the gallery below and if you’re at the show, drop by the Indie Zone and have some fun!

InWin Booth At Insomnia i51 LAN Gaming Event

Here we are at the end of the exhibition hall coverage from Insomnia i51 LAN gaming festival and we’ve stopped by the very popular In Win booth to see what they have on display. Not only have they got a bunch of great games for you to sit down and play, but they’ve got all their gaming rigs fitted in a range of absolutely stunning chassis.

First up we have the In Win 904 and the smaller (but similar design) In Win 901, both offer a mixture of aluminium and glass that is unlike anything else on the market, if you want to know more about the 904 chassis, then you can check out our full review of it here.

The budget friendly, but very funky In Win GT1 was also on display, another great chassis which we reviewed a while back.

One of my all time favourite chassis was also on display, the In Win GR-One and this is still the chassis of choice for the In Win sponsored (and very successful) eSports team, Team Infused. I actually owned this chassis for quite a long time and it’s great to see that it’s as popular as ever.

That’s all from the In Win booth for today, but we can tell you that we’ve got some very special content from In Win in the coming months that you won’t want to miss, unfortunately I cannot tell you any more on this at this time. This also concludes our coverage for the exhibition hall here at Insomnia i51, but we expect we’ll be back at Insomnia i52 in the summer, and many of you will know that Summer LAN is more than twice the size, with thousands of gamers and a lot more exhibitors, so that’s certainly something to look forward to later this year.

Overclockers UK (OCUK) Booth At Insomnia i51

Here we are once again at Insomnia i51 LAN gaming event, as we stop by the Overclockers UK booth in the exhibition hall to see what they have to offer. Things have been really busy this weekend at the show, and with Overclockers UK being one of the biggest online retailers in the business, there has been high demand for their services at the show. The OCUK team are out in force as usual, offering their popular repair, installation and deliver to you desk services. The deliver to your desk has been a big hit for them at previous events and i51 is no exception.

Order a product on their website, either from your phone, computer or even from the spare computers on their booth, choose the i51 delivery option and they’ll bring the items directly to the show for you. This is great news for any gamers in the halls, imagine how many people have been rescued when their hard drive fails, or their PSU blows at the show! LAN gaming events are famous for being systems killers, especially given people run their systems harder, for longer and in a warmer environments than they typically would.

Here you can see the team hard at work fixing up a water cooling system for one of the event attendees gaming rigs, and the team is always happy to help, even cutting people a few deals when they’re in need of spare parts and upgrades.

On display they’ve a range of great gaming rigs that you can purchase from the team, they feature some of the latest and greatest gaming components around, catering to a wide range of budgets and requirements, all of which can be found on their website. For those not interested in buying a new rig, the team at OCUK still welcome you to pull up a seat, put on the headsets and play some of the best games around on their awesome gaming PC’s.

That’s everything from the OCUK booth at the show, but we expect they’ll be back once again at the much bigger Summer LAN event in August, stay tuned for more coverage of the show throughout the weekend.

Antec Booth At Insomnia i51 LAN Gaming Festival

The Antec booth is another popular attraction here at Insomnia i51, not only because it gives people a chance to get a look at their latest products, but also because they’ve teamed up with Gamdias, who are running a few rigs in Antec chassis and letting visitors sit down to play the ever popular DOTA II.

The huge Antec Nineteen Hundred is out in force, towing over the visitors and running a monstrous gaming rig courtesy of the guys at YoYoTech.

The Nineteen Hundred has been fitted out with 2 x MSI graphics cards, water cooling and more, which have caught plenty of attention here at the show. Antec are keen to give away loads of great prizes here at the show and it just so happens the mob turned up to win some free loot while we were at the booth, took me a while to escape the hordes of visitors!

With AMP (Antec Mobile Products) and their new chassis products on display it’s looking like a good start to the year for Antec, but we’ll be following up in the coming weeks with reviews of the newest products on display.

That’s everything from the Antec booth today, but we’ll be back shortly with even more coverage from the show.

PC Specialist Booth At Insomnia i51

PC Specialist are one of the hottest system integrators on the market today, they’ve been gaining in popularity year after year and we’re always happy to see them at the shows we visit. They’ve got loads of powerful gaming rigs on display, but the best one of all is this 4K gaming monster, there wasn’t a price on the rig, but given their custom building nature, I’m sure they’ll happily build you one for a couple of thousand pounds.

The 17.3″ 1080p Vortex X880 gaming laptop comes fitted out with a high end Nvidia GTX 765M and the powerful Intel Core i7-4700MQ processor, making it a great weapon for those who want to game on the go. Sure it’s expensive at £1349.00, but you certainly get what you pay for.

The Optimus V is a little more affordable at just £799.00 and still features the same powerful CPU + GPU combination of the Vortex X880, but with a smaller 15.6″ screen, 8GB of ram and while it’s not exactly ugly, it’s not as pretty looking as the Vortex.

The Skyfire X14 is a bargain at just £649.00, packing the i5-4200MQ CPU, GTX 760M GPU, a 14″ LED display and 8GB of Hyper X memory, more than enough to enjoy many of today’s top gaming titles.

The Vanquish Mini is one of their more popular systems and its easy to see why, at just under £800 it’s packed with a high-end Intel Core i5-4670, GTX 760, 120GB Kingston SSD and the gorgeous Corsair Obsidian 250D chassis, it’s a great choice for those who need a compact gaming rig for the living room or for LAN gaming events.

Not that anyone here really cares about the gaming rigs, the booth is packed full of people eager to play the madness that is Goat Simulator, and after a five minute go on it myself, it’s easy to see what it’s so popular.

Finally we have the Infinity Trion, a budget friendly gaming rig that is ideal for mid range gaming and overkill for running games like Minecraft, but for just £375 you get great value from its AMD A8-6600K Quad Core APU and 8GB of Kingston Dual-DDR3 memory.

That’s everything from the PC Specialist booth for today, but check back shortly as we’ll have more great coverage from this weekends gaming event here in Coventry.

Cooler Master Booth At Insomnia i51 LAN Gaming Festival

Here we are at the Cooler Master and CM Storm booth at Insomnia i51 LAN gaming festival, there is loads to see and do at the show, for both gamers and day visitors who just want to come and join in the fun. Cooler Master are giving visitors a great opportunity to get hands on with many of their latest and greatest gaming peripherals, as well as try their hand at winning some prizes.

Their gorgeous Aluminium series Mech keyboard is always a popular choice and their typing challenge is a great way of putting the mechanical keyboard through its paces; type out the pattern on the screen in a fast enough time to win some cool prizes over the course of the weekend.

The quickest time can win the keyboard, which is worth £150, daily prizes of Recon gaming mice, and plenty of smaller prizes such as these cool new T-shirts, lanyards and stress balls.

The CM STorm Trigger Z, equipped with Black Cherry switches is really nice, featuring some sleek back and unlit keys, which is available at the show for just £79.99.

Their latest range of gaming mice are here too, including the awesome Recon, Reaper and Mizar hooked up to their Skorpion mouse cable bungee.

One of my favourite keyboards on show is the Stealth, blank key cap tops with some subtle markings on the front edge give the keyboard a sleek and rather unique design.

The QuickFire Ultimate offers stunning red LED backlighting, mechanical keys and a rugged design that make it ideal for gaming.

The Quick Fire XT offers a slightly more cut-down edition, offering the great gaming performance of mechanical keys, but the lack of LED backlighting offers a much more budget friendly price tag of £59.99.

A rack of Cosmos SE chassis are fitted out with high-end gaming rigs, each equipped with a range of Cooler Master and CM Storm peripherals so you can sit down and play Titanfall and Goat Simulator till your heart is content.

Those on a tighter budget can check out the Devastator bundle, a low-cost gaming keyboard and mouse combo. We especially like the membrane keyboard as it’s got a typing sensation similar to that of Cherry MX black switches.

That’s everything from the Cooler Master booth for today, but we’ll be back shortly with even more great coverage from the show. We’ll also be following up with Cooler Master in the coming weeks to bring you reviews of the new products they had on display.

Multiplay Insomnia i51 LAN Gaming Event Exhibition

We’re back once again at the Insomnia i51 gaming event here in Coventry, enjoying the rather stunning Ricoh arena that Multiplay have chosen for the event. We thought you would love to see some of the things that go on here at the show now that the event is at a new home so let’s take a look at what else you can find on the exhibition show floor.

Xbox One is here this year with their gaming 4×4, which has a huge rack of fold out hi-def screens and Xbox One consoles, great for trying out a big of Titanfall… although not as great as playing it on some of the epic gaming PC’s that are littered around the hall, that is of course if you can get past all the people waiting to play Goat Simulator, which has proven more popular than anything else this weekend, crazy!

As if one gaming bus wasn’t enough, Gamersbus.co.uk are here too, giving the Razer gaming bus a run for its money and offering loads of great titles to play on the inside. Unlike the Razer bus, you can actually rent this bad boy out for your own parties, very tempting.

The latest Square Enix title is a big hit this weekend too, with many gamers eager to get hands on with Nosgoth, so much so that I couldn’t even find a seat for a go myself, but from what I’ve seen, the game is shaping up rather nicely and I can’t wait to check it out in-detail later this year.

One of the most important exhibitors at the show is Special Effect, they’ve done countless great deeds to help those who have suffered physical disabilities, finding innovative ways to allow them to still enjoy the world of computer games. It’s an eyeopening experience to try out some of these purpose build controller yourself. Multiplay as well as many of us here at the show do our part to help them raise the funds they need to support their cause.

Vacant Mind Gaming are here too with this somewhat unique gaming rig, they offer custom builds for those who want something very different from your average gaming chassis. Can’t say I’m all that keen on this design, but I can see the appeal of something a bit different.

Apparently people still want to play Flappy Bird… although I will admit it plays better with a mouse than it does a touch screen.

Pull up a seat at the Chillblast stand and race your heart out on this gorgeous Logitech G25 racing wheel and triple Eyefinity gaming setup.

Oculus Rift is on show once again too, always great fun for a bit of mind-blowing FPS action and with the headset on and goggles on your face, it’s easy to forget the chaos and noise of the show around you.

We’ve still got plenty of great coverage from some of the coolest booths here at the show, so stay tuned for more coverage throughout the day.

eTeknix @ Multiplay Insomnia i51 LAN Gaming Event

The Insomnia i51 LAN gaming event in Coventry UK, hosted by Multiplay, is in full swing this weekend and the show just wouldn’t be the same without the eTeknix team stopping by to see what’s happening. There is more going on at the show than ever before this weekend and that is especially thanks to the brand new location for the event, having moved from the Telford International Centre to the stunning Richo Arena, which is located at the heart of the UK, making at an ideal location for gamers all over the UK. The new arena a grand football stadium and comes packed with facilities to handle larger crowds, offering up a Casino, plenty of bars and accommodation that make it a handy addition to the 24-hour a day party that Insomnia is legendary for.

Aside from the LAN gaming tournaments, legendary eSports teams competing against each other and a couple of thousand gamers brining their own rigs into the vast gaming halls, there are lots of things to see and do at Insomnia, so let’s walk the show floor and take a look at a small taste of what is on offer this year.

There is a huge range of manufacturers, retailers and gaming brands in the exhibition hall, offering loads of competitions, games to play, products to try out and more.

Gamers are well catered for, but Razer have pulled out all the stop by brining their own mobile gaming bus, a popular attraction here at the show, so much so that I couldn’t even get a go!

A returning favourite of ours, the retro gaming zone, everything from Atari to Sega Dreamcast classics are up and running here, lots of screens, retro controllers and a great way of wasting time. If I wasn’t working, I could sit here all day playing Goldeneye.

There are little pods everywhere, this one is courtesy of Razer and is fitted with a half dozen Xbox’s for gamers to kick back and battle their friends in games such as Fifa, all while using a range of awesome Razer peripherals of course.

PC gaming is well catered for also, with tournaments, demonstrations and more awesome peripherals to get hands on with alongside the Razor team.

The Minecraft presence at the show is as strong as ever, a popular attraction for the younger members of the audience, although there are plenty of adults who get in on the action too.

There is still a load of great stuff going on here at the show, so we’ll be back shortly with even more coverage of the booths and exhibitor show floor very shortly.

Antec @ Insomnia i50

eTeknix are here at Insomnia  i50 Lanniversary, exploring everything that Antec booth have to offer. attendance is packed and the crowd is keen to explore all the latest tech on display at the show. So let’s get to it and see exactly what Antec have to offer.

Here we see a stunning build from Pexon PC’s, featuring the Antec P280 chassis (our review) and some beautiful water cooling with copper pipe work and some custom sleeved cables. Of course Antec don’t sell this system, but it shows the potential for what their chassis can do.

Also on display we have the massive Nineteen Hundred, their latest super tower which will be available at retail next month, and we hope to have a full review of it shortly after.

Featuring plenty of room for storage, expansion cards and large motherboards, it certainly looks like a tempting options.

On display we have a range of popular Antec coolers, including their new designed Kulher 650 which we recently reviewed.

A few competition on the go, where you can drop by the booth, compete and win some prizes. So be sure to drop by the booth and join in the fun.

A range of fans, including their LED range, all of which look fantastic (no pun intended).

Also on display are their brand new AMP mobile headsets, bluetooth equipped and wireless, they’re so new, this is all we know about them, but we hope well see a full review on the site in a few weeks time.

That’s it from the Antec booth today and we think they’re new chassis and headsets are really cool, keep and eye on the booth and well be bringing you more coverage from the show later today.
