Day two at Insomnia 46

Day two at the largest LAN gaming event in the UK Insomnia 46 and Steve although sleep deprived is still going strong with the coverage here at i46

Here at Insomnia we're well underway now with our competitions going strong and the punters, well.. punting.

We have an array of competitions on offer over the course of the weekend including a Serious Sam competition to see who can survive the longest on the games Survival mode for a chance to win either a PS3 or an XFX 6970.

One of our more popular ones the Fastest PC Quick Build is back this time featuring some modifications as some members were questioning its simplicity so the thumb screws have gone and we're back to a screwdriver. However that hasn't slowed them down as we're still seeing times in the sub 3 minutes region.

Our reaction time testing machines are back but this time it’s much harder than last time as the lights you have to tap aren't all in front of you, they're around you so it's a nonstop neck breaking challenge to see who's got not only the quicker reflexes but the fastest observational skills. As professional gaming isn't just about shooting your opponent quickly, it's about seeing him before he sees you.

We also managed to catch up with old time exhibition friends Cooler Master who have also helped CCL in the past with such events as the London International Technology Show.

They have some fun competitions as well this weekend with a challenging fun fair style game whereby you are required to throw 3 balls into their CM Storm Trooper cases which have had front panels removed to create apertures, the bigger the aperture the bigger the points.

Check out the video below for a visual overview of their booth at this year’s summer LAN - Insomnia 46
