Noctua Giveaway!

19 October 2014 - 04:35 PM

Alright folks, it's time for another giveaway at OCC. This time it's to help get your computer a little bit cooler, as Noctua has three CPU coolers up for grabs!

 

We have the NH-D15, NH-U14S, and NH-U12S to give out to three lucky winners. All you have to do to enter is post a picture of what your current heat sink looks like in your rig. Since these are desktop coolers, only people with a desktop computer can enter. Luckily these coolers can be shipped world wide, so there are no restrictions based on where you live!

 

All entries must be submitted within the next two weeks (November 2) to be qualified for one of the Noctua CPU coolers. Pictures can be attached to your post or submitted through an image uploading website (like Imgur).

 

If you win, you will have 48 hours to respond, or else it will go to someone else.

 

 

Good luck to all!


OCC is Hiring News Editors, Review Editors, and an Assistant

28 September 2014 - 11:30 AM

OverclockersClub is hiring once again, with both news editor and review editor positions available, as well as a personal assistant for Bosco. Each editor position features similar requirements, and are in fact fairly similar in the skills you will be using. The personal assistant is a little more involved and demanding.

 

News editors scour the Web for computer hardware news, find items relevant to OCC, and write an article about it. It is one of the more visible jobs here at OCC, since your writing and username are featured on the main page. Because of that, spelling and grammar must be superb, as everyone will be able to see it.

 

Review editors also need to know their grammar and spelling, but that's because they are editing the reviews at OCC. They make sure the reviews do not have any errors or mistakes, and then correct them so the review can go live. It is more about making sure everything looks correct than rewriting elements; if a sentence or two doesn't look right, then you contact the reviewer for clarification.

 

The personal assistant is a little different, as this person will be helping Bosco out with various tasks on OCC. They will help out with contests, site edits, help grow OCC, and any other tasks Bosco may have. Due to the requirements and demands of this position, Bosco would like the assistant to be available at most times of the day (apologies to those who are both working and attending classes). Bosco's personal assistant will receive hardware in exchange for the position, as well as a letter of reference for any future jobs they wish.

 

 

If you are interested in these positions, then feel free to send a private message or email to myself for news editors, ClayMeow for review editors, and Bosco for the personal assistant. Good luck to all future applicants!

[Free] Dungeon Keeper at GOG

14 February 2014 - 10:04 AM

GOG.com is having a bit of a sale this weekend, with Dungeons & Dragons games at 80% off and various multiplayer games up to 90% off.

 

It's also giving away Dungeon Keeper for free, but you have to act before the weekend ends! So that gives everyone just a bit over 40 hours to pick up the classic title. There's a bit of a demand for the keys, so when you click on the "Get It Now" button, you may see a prompt saying you'll receive the key via email in a bit (less than a minute for me).


OCC Needs Reviewers

05 January 2014 - 11:23 AM

OCC is hiring once more, and this time it is for Reviewers!

 

The position is pretty self-explanatory as to what exactly you'll be doing. We do have some requirements for you, however, and they are as follows:

  • Must be in the United States
  • Must possess either an Intel Haswell or AMD FX Vishera system
  • At least a 23", 1920x1080 monitor. Three is nice, but not required

If you fit the bill for those, feel free to send an email to Bosco with your application. He'll take it from there over what you'll be doing. There is a time requirement for being a reviewer, as some products can be pretty in-depth.

 

Best of luck to all who apply!
