So there you have it for this years prizes so far, we will prob have another company or two join in during the event that usually happens. I will post an update if that happens.

Ok so what do you have to do in order the Christmas contest, well its going to be pretty simple. I am not going to make you like our YouTube Channel, Facebook or Twitter accounts that just sounds so desperate :lol: Who the heck has time for the crap during the holidays and some of you don't even have accounts, so I try and be easy on you guys :)

What I do want is for you to answer a simple question for some companies that have been asking.

Here is exactly what you have to do: Email with the following:

1. Please put "Contest" in the subject line.

2. Username:

3. List your System Specs:

4. List your mailing address with your phone number very important. (Companies sometimes cannot ship without it)

5. Lastly tell me what your next upgrade is and why. This is being used as a survey so I can give some feedback to the companies coming into CES.


1. If any of the above is missing your entry will be deleted.
2. One Email only, any sign of cheating you are gone from the contest. You guys are always really good but I still have to state it.
3. (IMPORTANT) In order to win the Grand Prize you must have a min of 20 posts and be a member of the OCC forums for longer then 30 days. (Must meet both Requirements Spamming for posts will get you kicked out of the contest)
4. Contest will end on Dec 24th 9:00am Pacific Time, any entries after that will be deleted. Winners will be announced sometime that day. Its Christmas EVE so please be patient.
5. Contest is open to everyone (Including Staff) and to any Country.

I think that covers everything, good luck guys and I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday. :)

Feel free to post any questions or comments

Yes, yes, yessss! I love the Christmas contest around here, such joy and happiness when one wins a product they either have been wanting or needing. Though I have never win, I love participating and seeing pictures of those who use their gifts.

It's the decisions you make when you have no time to make them that define who you are.
