I have decided to make a new thread since we are into a new year. Lots of people come and go so I want to make sure that you the members are getting a fair chance at getting something. So all of you active members make a post with all of your current specs in this thread please.


If your specs change go back and edit your post, do not double post and do not post telling us you have updated your specs. Just go back edit it and thats it pretty simple rule to follow :)


Anyone who posts in this thread with their system specs and their country they reside in will be automatically entered into this on going contest. The only thing I ask in return is you brag about what you won on Facebook and Twitter if you use those accounts to promote the contest, thats my only wish from you guys :)


Your post will look something like this:


Intel 3960X
MSI X79A-GD65 8D
16GB of Corsair Vengeance
Corsair Force 3 GT 240GB SSD
Coolermaster 932 Case
Noctua D14 CPU Cooler
Thermaltake Toughpower XT Platinum 1275 Watts
3 X 24" LCD's
Corsair SP2500 Speakers

Country Canada


Thats all you have to do.


How does the contest work? Well its simply, every once in a while a winner will be randomly be picked. I will look at the winners specs and decide what part I think they need to make their system better. If I have it I will send it if not I will contact a company to see if they will donate it. Once I have confirmed they are on board the winner will be contacted for a shipping address and I will then post the winner.


You are allowed to edit your post if your specs change during the contest, but do not create a second post. I have pulled the logs for your current specs that are listed on the forums, if you try and cheat by lowering your specs you are out of the contest so don't do it.


There is no rule stating that 5 winners in a row couldn't get video cards or HDD's or whatever if will just depend on what your specs show. As companies donate prizes they will be added to this post and they will also be thanked in the winners announcement post as well.


There is going to be no set frequency that this will happen, but expect at least once a month, expect for the first draw in the next week. If you are a winner you will be in Ineligible to win another prize from this contest for a period of 3 months but leave your post up. If you win something during this contest, don't worry you can still enter our annual Christmas Contest :)

Everyone can play except Reviewers and Staff Members from other websites.


All comments and questions go in this thread:




Good Luck guys. :)
