Ohio gets put down so often I just stopped caring. Turn on a movie to see some smart mouth have something to say about Cleveland or jokes about Columbus being a cow town. Keep on making jokes buddy, Ohio has something most of the States don’t have and may never get the chance to. No it is not the many LAN events Ohio host every year, like Nexus and LANOC, we have something much bigger. Major League Gaming has purchased and setup an arena right here in Columbus Ohio. MLG.tv Columbus Arena is a 14,000 sq. ft venue!!! Does your state have that? Nope because as of right now it is the only MLG.TV facility in the US. One is NYC is coming soon. I sit here with some of the coolest nerds, geeks, techies or whatever name you wish to give them, knowing that we are on the forefront of being a major location for Esports worldwide. Nexus is filled with people that will travel an hour to Columbus for COD tourneys. Bring it on.
Thanks Nexus for hosting PureOC. Check out some of these pics as things setup to play all night. If you are within a few hours of Dayton, you should try to make it next year. Or to LanOC. Both sell out quickly. http://www.nexuslan.org/ or http://lanoc.org/lan-parties
Here is the system I put together for Nexus LAN. Computer Ed from Sapphire and I both agreed to go with smaller systems…… My idea of small is kind of different… :} Will be getting some pics of Eds rig here shortly. He ran off somewhere.
I crammed a Ek 45mmx360mm rad inside of the Cooler Master 915F just to see if I could do it. The Cooler Master G750M semi modular PSU was perfect for this project. MSI Z87i Gaming AC, Sapphire 290 with Ek blocks. Avexir memory and lot and lots of time brain cells.
Tight space but still made it happen.
I will be on the look out for cool rigs to post. This one comes from Wes Aka Garfield from LanOC. Brought it to Nexus to stress it out. That is one way to test it.
Stay tuned! More to come!
