I have very sad news today for the EVGA forums today. Mike Clements a.k.a Yellowbeard a.k.a Corsair_mike has passed on. Cause of death is unknown at this time as he passed on in his sleep. I have confirmed this on his Facebook page and also his wife's Facebook page. My thoughts go out to his family and the Corsair family as well. This is tremendous loss to the modders community as a whole. He will be difficult if not impossible to replace. I know he personally helped quite a few forum members here on the EVGA forums.
 
Rest in Peace Mike Clements, you'll not be forgotten

    Mike was everywhere. He was at most of the computer shows, was at many gaming lan parties, on many forums. Not many people like him. He was one in a million.

    WWOOOWW!!! Holy....that's such a punch in the gut. What a great guy that will sorely be missed by a lot of communities. Many years ago when I would help out at the Asus forums I used to talk to him all the time, but when I started spending more time here at evga I haven't spoke to him as much. Raise hell in the afterlife Mike!!!! You will be missed. \m/  \m/
