Seasonic is sponsoring 10x of the brand new Seasonic Syncro 704 Case + PSU. If you haven’t seen this case before, check it out – it is a unique way to power up a computer with very minimal wire management. The case is an inverted motherboard and a lot of tooless options.

Thank you Seasonic, and welcome to the PDXLAN Family!

Charity Drive at PDXLAN

Greetings community!

I wanted to take a moment and announce the details about the charity drive that will be taking place at PDXLAN Fall 2021.

Making effective change in the world is something I feel “called to”. So much so that it has influenced the direction of PDXLAN in terms of it’s core values: Community, Inclusivity, Respect, and Giving.

At PDXLAN Fall 2021 we will have the chance to focus on giving by donating to a charity that shares our values of community, inclusivity, and respect. Our chosen charity is “Because People Matter” – based right here in Portland, OR.

For the first time in two years PDXLAN and some of its sponsors will join forces to do some good in the world by giving. Attendees will recieve one charity raffle ticket for every $10 they give. Attendees are encouraged to get friends and family, neighbors, and co-workers to also give, and by doing so earn even more charity raffle tickets.

At the event there will be up to 10 boxes for attendees to put their raffle tickets in. Want to win a AMD Radeon 6900XT? How about a full system? What about a NVIDIA GeForce 3080? Astro Gaming A50 headset? Just place your tickets in the box of the item(s) you want a chance at winning. 

Our goal is $30,000 – and I believe that we can make it happen! Our chairity page is now live here.

Thank you all for your time, I look forward to changing the world with you! If you’ve got questions, hit us up on Discord or Facebook.
