OC3D New Year Competition

Win the Aries Cooler MARS 840

 Aries Cooler MARS 840 Competition 

 

The OC3D New Years Competition has rapidly become a staple fixture of this site. If you recall last year we gave away the amazing Arora Project, which was a £2500 i7 based system stuffed inside a Time To Live Customs modded Lian Li A70 with about the finest, sexiest, paint job this side of, well almost anything.

 

In January OC3D will be evolving into a fresh modern website with an amazing new look and brand new forums. To mark this momentous occasion OC3D has partnered several manufacturers and TTL once more,  to bring you this years amazing prize.

 

Regular readers of our forums will be aware of a project log that has recently appeared on the forums call Aries. So far the build has been secretive, but enticing. The odd reveal here. A glimpse of hardware there. As the Cooler Master 840 part of the name suggests, we don't mind showing you the main chassis. So far it has been treated to a high quality internal powder-coat. But what of the rest? 

 

Project Aries Project Aries read 

 

The detectives among you will have already had thoughts about what the missing hardware could be. All the clues are available, will you be able to piece them together? Its been long enough, we cant keep it quiet any longer. Thanks to the guys over at Asus, OC3D have been given the first and only Asus MARS that will ever be given away worldwide! In true OC3D fashion this wasnt enough so we have also go a limited Edition Bitspower MARS water block to go with it! Can it get any better?

 

If you want to keep up to date with the progress of Project Aries, grab a few more hints about what is in store, or even let us know what you think the final specifications for the 2010 OC3D New Years Competition will be, then go to our forums.

Oh my god. WOW.

Huge spec here. And in the single greatest case the world has ever seen too. The CM ACTS 840 is just epic. I can't rate it highly enough.

But a TTL custom one? *drroooolllssss*

That is also one of the q's atm, not sure if its will be i5 or i7.

As it stands probs the 750 though.Quote

10-12-2009, 11:29:40

would of been my personal choice tbh, a 750 is more then enough these days and its OC potencial is great, more to spend in the grfx department aswell Quote

Still vaguely torn between this and the Obsidian 800D. I like the looks of the 800D better and I think it has more space, but everyone says this is a dream to work with.Quote

Apparently the 200mm roof fans are terrible at pulling air through a radiator- much worse than trip 120mm's..Quote

I went and picked up the Aries chassis from the coaters yesterday morning, YAY! for mince pies and taking them all coffee, it was ready friday but I couldnt get over there. 24hour turn around ftw!

Anyways I chucked it in the tent to get some nice pics.....

That would explain why you're so tired mate.

Hope you're well rested.

You mentioned unboxings, not sure about everyone else, but I always like to see a good unboxing of the newest hardware, though still pics of the outside, packaging, components in box, component out of box and accessories tends to work better than a video. Unboxing vids I've seen before can get very tedious when someone is trying to prise something out of polystyrene for a minute. Cutting it is just more work for you too.

Exciting project though!Quote

Pretty nice work Why you choose Internal Powder Coating vs other painting techniques? Which is better in your opinion? Quote

16-12-2009, 18:53:20

tinytomlogan
Powdercoat is best for logevity on internals. but paint is a much better finish which is why I use it for externals on my projects. I kept the mods down this year as I spent £600 on the case for last years competition and the winner sold it, I never even got a picture after it arrived.

So I decided to keep the mods low and make it about the design and the hardware.Quote

16-12-2009, 19:25:11

monkey7
Which reminds me; we might want to have the winner sign some sort of contract that will obligate him to pay an X amount when the rig disappears into thin air. I don't think any of us would like to see another rig disappear.

Might not be the right thread, but just mentioning.Quote

16-12-2009, 19:28:53

tinytomlogan
I think we are looking at bringing some new clauses into the rules tbh monkey, I was far from impressed last year. £600 was and still is an insane ammount of money for me. The mixture of having no proper spray booth atm and what happened last year is why this isnt being painted this year.

BUT!! not to be negative, Ive gone for a contrasting stealthy approach this year, and I think its really going to work tbh!Quote

This sounds like it will be a very nice system when it's completed.

I remember another site giving away a complete water cooled core i7 system last year and the winner never even posted a pic or made another forum post after he received it Quote

Depends on what you understang longer members. Just remember that not all of the visitors/members on the forum are chatting here. Some of them might be every day here reading but not writing like someone use to say at the Ruby competition that just ended.Quote

The competition goes live New Years day, I will sneak out details between now and then.

Worldwide entrants will as ever be allowed, we may just ask for a small contribution towards the overseas shipping. Electrical outlet differences from the UK will also need to be considered.

-------

Well to keep this week flowing nicely I think its time we tell you a little bit more! Obviously if you want hard drives to be super fast then you need an SSD, so yet again to continue the crazy path this system is taking we have two, yes 2x OCZ Vertex 60gb SSD's in a raid 0 format going in for the OS!

This is going to be a swift rig for sure Quote

Wow, that's really dissapointing. If you win something, esp a huge prize like a high end PC, the least you can do is post a couple pictures in the forums as a thank you. The case last year turned out really well (and it should have for £600). I would be frustrated too if I found out it was just sold or if I found is listed on ebay. Quote

I thought I recognised that number. I have a Custom PC magazine sitting here in which they tested that EXACT card.

It's an extensive two page spread. Won't say anything but if Tom would like I could write up the gist of it and FPS results and what not.Quote

19-12-2009, 07:14:49

tinytomlogan
Yeah its the same card, basically there has only ever been 2 review samples in the UK, it was a BIG deal me even getting one to test let alone talking them into letting me keep it, and even more insane I managed to convince them that we should give it away!

So lets all say it together!

aye would be a 860 or 870, Intel are the latest manufacturer to the table and tbh.... massive respect and a big thankyou! MASSIVE company that get sales no matter what and they have just said a yep. NP Ill get you one ASAP!

Cant forget Asus & OCZ as without those two companies this compo would not be possible basically.

But we must never forget Cooler Master, they started the ball rolling, and Bitspower WAS the final thing that made the Asus execs. say yes. The MARS waterblock was the final detail that sealed the deal so we got a £1000 GPU for the rig, so big up the Bitspower bling.

Been saying all year that Bitspower is the grown up water cooling parts of choice. Lets see what companies start stocking them now <- sig quote that mofo wink wink its already happening, companies that said they would never stock BP have suddenly started stocking them - lalalalala lalalalaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

The project is amazing, the giveaway is truly amazing, thanks OC3D and the sponsors. It`s gonna be an amazing start of the year with this competition, new launch of the website. Brand new start, brand new year. This setup will make someone very happy, can`t understand that thing if winning something you get to sell it like i`ve read at the start of this thread.

Who would sell this baby?This kind of setup comes close to your soul, it`s a winning, it`s your luck, it`s your chance, it`s the best setup you could ever have, why sell it? OC3D is really kind to offer us this chance together with ASUS, OCZ and others, thanks for it, it really is a big deal. I can`t wait for new year`s day, the new lauch, the giveaway, the new year to come.Quote

I can put it on there, as I have a set of discs for TTL but I deffo would not be sending the key tbh. Might just leave it unactivated, really not sure about the OS as we have no retailers on board who were willing to supply a retail version.

http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/b...MARS000006.jpg

inside the block there seems to be some heat staining, its on the internals on both the water block plates, I find it strange to think it was machined after being nickel plated, maybe its just an area that was not finished as well as the outside. I cant see this making a blind bit of difference to temperatures though. ou can see in the pics the flow of water goes from the back card through to the front card, being directed by the large delrin center piece,

i know I keep blabbing on about loving Bistpower kit, but with products that look like this, completely integrating itself with the original card with out looking trashy and OTT. THIS is the reason why I love Bitspower so much.

If only Asus would use Bitspower Blocks on a H20 range.......

Last but not least, where would we be without a good old YouTube video!

I can see why you luurrve the Bitspower kits Tom, "snug as a bug in a rug" as they say, I was nervous just watching, but made sure i was in a room by myself . Seem to have quite a few screws left over from the fan fittings etc normally what I am like but always get worried just in case one of them should be in there.

Again thanks to all the companies for supplying the kit for this but I think the guys behind it all should also get a mention. So thanks to all OC3D staff in particular to Tom for taking the time out to build this amazing rig for a competition where anyone can win from anywhere in the world.

OC3D is still the best most user dedicated and user friendly OC advice forum on the web in my opinion.Quote

I totally agree, that is an amazingly clean waterblock bitspower has designed for the MARS. I really like how they took the time to put in the correct card number but with as much as that combo run its fitting. Thanks for the nine miniutes of geek porn teardown tinytomlogan.

I just imagined Tom sitting in the middle of a table with a HUGE big red button. Then a request from the forums come in and he says "LET IT BE DONE!" He then whacks it hard. Quote

02-01-2010, 12:28:34

I'll be honest and say that it does look a bit generic but that is probably because most internals are normally done black. Or it's probably because I haven't seen grey internals in aaages...Quote

toms concentrated much more on the insides this year which i think you already know by now, i dont think it looks generic...thats a bad choice of words right there, i think it hits it off well with the blue soo top marks for tom Quote

I did think about red tbh, but meh its a bit obvious. The blue is the tie with the forum if anything, and it helps make the rig a bit brighter. Red would have made it too dark and very similar to Hell FireQuote

So TTL. IF (note how I said IF PeterStoba) I win this I will use my prize, from aaaaages ago where the the prize was I get a free internal powder coat worth up to £50, on this to make the internals all orange. Bright orange.

Orange and blue is always a win.Quote

02-01-2010, 16:40:08

Ducky Spud
So if you win it, the first thing you'll do is get Tom to take it to bits and powdercoat it again? haha.

As others have said, red would of been the obvious choice of lighting/coolant to go with the Mars theme, but I think blue looks good, black and blue always seem to go well together I think *looks at blue and black rig under his desk* hahaQuote

I think any colour would've worked. 'Cos in the end it is a prize we all want.

If it was something reeaaallly cheap, that anyone could/can buy easily, and he turned it say brown, then I doubt anyone would like it.

It's not the colour that counts its the significance.Quote

the only thing what you see on the board is maybe the bottom of the southbridge which is mostly cothered by the mars, and the rest is just a black pcb which someone stated before......."black goes with everything". the beformance was slightly kaput but i think its just down to the newness of the series from asus, overtime the board will mature and performance should be fine Quote

Its an awesome rig for whoever wins it...i think its great TTL put so much off his own money, time and effort into making the build what it is.... and then also putting some more of his own money towards shipping it to the winner.

I would pay for the whole thingQuote

No, but try clearing your history and cache, usually helps with hotmail. Or you could try using an other browser.

I dream about it like all the time... but although I've entered loads of competitions I've had no luck Quote

04-01-2010, 17:41:22

Ducky Spud
Just entered myself. Not very hopeful as I never win anything but always worth a shot anyway.

As for the favorite components, I went for ones I have personal experience of. The Asus P5Q-E as it allowed me to clock my E8500 upto 4.5GHz, way more than I could manage on my old Gigabyte board. And OCZ Vertex drives. Got 2 30Gb ones and they are one of the best upgrades Ive made recently, such a massive improvment for general usage.

As for what TTL project I liked the most, had to be MNR v1.2, simply because of every single tiny possible detail and more was done on that build, it was just properly 'complete'.

But yea, good luck to all, and whoever wins it is one lucky git! Quote

If I was lucky enough to win a runner up pack..id be in heaven!!!

many reasons...

I need a new keyboard..i live on energy drink!...Literally, relentless is my life and soul. ha ha ha. I must drink about 4 a day now when i get going. This comp is INSANE!!!!! I MEAN INSANE!!! thats some serious moolah for companys to be giving away. This is great...its nice to see the computer world looking out for their own,. Good to see new people coming on OC3D too..hang about...

I dont want the computer...Id love it, but I wouldnt use it and I'm happy with my rig...Let someone who deserves it take it.... Building a good rig is tough atm, and this little bad boy will just own anything it touches.

Id rather all the little goodies...ha ha ha...

Well yes i would say, if you notice the questions asked are from all of the major sponsors, this is a good oppertunity for them to gather information on what products/style people like, and push on with them, market them more etc, very valuable stuff given the wide range on users on this siteQuote

This may have been mentioned before but I didn't think memory coolers worked with Asus' new memory retention system where there is no clip on the end closest to the video card? Since the coolers attach to the clips that normally hold the memory in place the bottom of the cooler would be free floating.

I haven't had any experience with a P55 board but this is the only thing that really jumps out at me as being a problem. Other than that this is one hell of a build/mod.Quote

I beleive you don't have to pay for the shipping of the runner up prizes, and you won't just get a bottle, you will also get a mouse pad, keyboard, water cooling stuff. All of that is in every single runner up pack.

If you win Aries you will have to pay a part of the shipping if you live outside of the UK.Quote

Personally i think people should pay for all of the shipping.... TTL has put in so much of his own time, effort and money to get the build completed ... for the maxixum payment of 100 bucks for shipping u get a $3000 + PCQuote

If you live outside the UK and win one of the packs yes you do. Its not one item its a whole pack, if someone does not want to pay for shipping then we will just choose again. But i very much doubt anyone would, the Bitspower prizes alone are worth close to £200Quote

I don't see why people wouldn't at least help pay for shipping, especially since your going to be getting a lot of great prizes back.

I do 3d modelling and animating so I need good rig whit fast gpu and cpu. And in here Finland pc parts prizes are so high that nobody can affort those. My life is in computers so now my life is bad condition and I need new life and Aries can make that happen if you know what I mean I like that mars so much.

tinytomlogan
Im not going to start working out shipping prices for everyone now, we will have to wait and see who wins, if the winners are outside of the UK they will just have to pay the price over what it would have cost to ship IN the uk. So basically you are just paying what ever the extra cost would have been.Quote

09-01-2010, 10:45:33

Pseudonym
I would imagine it will cost a few hundred Euros to post at least, but they have only said

Winners outside the UK may be asked to contribute to shipping costs.



I guess it means you'll be asked to pay the difference between posting to the UK and wherever you live. Why not look on some of the big shipping sites and ask for a quote?

I imagine it will be sent from TTL's shed straight to you, so use any old Isle of Wight post code. Here's one for the town of Ryde - PO33 2QG.

Dimensions and weight are a little tricky to work out, but the Amazon page for the case puts its boxed weight at 16kg (+ parts and goodies + coolant = lots of weight.)

Add a good few CM to each dimension on the case to get a rough idea of box size.

You'll want this bad boy insured. I wouldn't want to guess the actual cost; what do you guys think it's worth?

If you win Killa, I'll gladly pay for it to be shipped to my house. You can pick it up from there

EDIT: sniped by TTL.Quote

its good that people get stuff like this from sponsors and giveaway

its nice to see this as not many companies do this

also this is a awesome rig so im pretty sure it will last the winner at least around 3 years for me it would last at least 5 years no doubtQuote

Well it would except maybe the graphics card since it doesn't support DX11 but other than that I'm sure it would last a couple of years

If it is shipped internationally the winner may get hosed for duty and taxes. If the send specifies it is a gift or a contest prize I -think- there is no duty on it. May be something to look into as well when you have some free time. I mean, it's not like you are trying to build a banging computer system or anything.

it depends, if its outside the EU it would cost in tax and stuff, well normally.. the same if i, who live in denmark would buy stuff outside the EU:-) but maybe its different since its not a buy but a win:-)Quote

Well afaik there's only two ways to go about it...

A) We insure the system for whatever its worth (say £3000) and when it goes overseas the customs in that country look at the insurance value and slap on tax based on that.

We don't insure it, mark it as a gift and it gets through customs without any charges....but not necessarily all in one piece.

I could be wrong, but i dont think insuring it & marking it as a gift works...at least it didn't when I got stung with a massive bill from DHL when I imported the OC3D load testing equipment :sQuote

That would be very nice (didn't knew you would get one of everything)

Any estimated price for the rig shipping to (for example belgium) i have no clue about the weight just in case i win... you never know also is it confirmed that there is no shipping to be paid on runner up packs, and yes it is that big of an issue for me.... my wallet is worth more then its content xDQuote

I see people started to worry about the shipping cost. People don't worry I'm sure Tom will let you some time to get the money for the shipping. Wait people you still didn't even win and don't forget its almost as impossible to win the competition cause you are one vs 100's. So now wish you win the rig and don't worry that much and you can find the shipping cost on websites.

Anyone outside the UK will be required to pay the difference in shipping on all prizes. We will not be quoting prices untill the winners and locations are announced. Lets stop worrying about what if and wait untill people actually win. I will say that Aries will not be leaving here without full insurance coverage as we have obligations to the sponsors even once the prize leaves here. Photos, forums posts ect ect.Quote

I think Tom should deliver Aries personally. That way he could get photos videos etc. And the winner would get the pleasure of meeting the builder! And saying a proper thanks! Probably involving lots of drooling and hugging (man hugging of course).Quote

The point im making is that 16 year olds have a higher chance of getting alcohol poisoning. Alcohol is much more dangerous in the hands of a 16 year old

Ma latest build which had the striker 2 extreme? which had to be RMA for over an year to get it right, besides i been trying selling most my gear here in brazilian forums to save up money for my case build and also for new gear to come now at 2010, and since none of it is out yet, i would be more then the happiest person in the world to win that, and i also never won a prize like that either. I won many good things, like sisters, my brother my gf, a lovely crazy family good health and all this, but never got a custom pc or any kind of lottery thingy.

Well i have a q9550 with a hd4870, it's not weak but it's still completely outclassed by Aries, so i would not feel even a bit guilty for wining and the picture the winner has to send in would reflect that .Quote

My wee E2180 pumping along at 3Ghz would be eaten by the Aries.

It would be a nice way to prep for APB.Quote

Hehe, i'm keeping my stuff unless i happen to get something better. My current rig is the best i ever had, i usually buy something cheaper but i managed to get this cpu used for 60% of the price of a new one so i grabbed it. I got the 4870 used too.Quote

Arora was aaammmaaaazzziiiinnnng and this thing is around half of what Arora is. The only truly epic thing about this, and no offence to TTL or any of the sponsors, is that this thing has a MARS GPU.Quote

Two watercooled MARS just doesn't work. In the reviews I read about them when they tested them in SLI they were just appalling. Bit like 295's in SLI. Most games just don't like quad sli and the single card will almost definitely work better than two.Quote

So let's talk about the awesomeness of the sponsors! What did you guys list as your favourite product?

Asus: to me it was a battle between the eee netbooks because of the revolution they started, and the monster that is MARS. In the end i went with MARS

OCZ: This one was pretty obvious to me. I'm a huge fan of all the stuff OCZ do, especially the SSD's. But one product stands out by the sheer awesomeness of the concept - Neural Impulse Acutator. God i wish i had one of those Quote

when the books where rewritten some long time ago the number went to 666

"there is still doubt by some theologians about the original reading, as some recently discovered third century early manuscripts of Revelation read 616."

it is more like they aren't 100% sure if it is 666 or 616 or just both :OQuote

What is the actual total cost of the whole competition? Or is that inside information? Sometimes people don't really appreciate something enough until you tell them you spent a lot of money on it. Prices are just what I took as an average from google shooping (FTW!)

ARIES:

Asus Sabertooth P55 - £170

Intel Core i7 870 - £430

Asus MARS - £950

Bitspower MARS waterblock ~£200 (guessing here)

Bitspower Fittings ~£90

OCZ Gold Series 4GB RAM - £80

OCZ Vertex (X2) - £350

OCZ Gold 850 watt PSU - £155

Coolermaster ATCS 840 - £150

Powdercoating - £75

Watercooling Components - £200

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit - £120

Man Hours from Tom - (Priceless, but for the sake of the total, and I'm guessing again here Tom!) £~500

That's almost £3500. Which is A LOT of money. Then you have to consider all the awards for the 5 runners up. Probably totalling something like another £200 for each one of those, taking the grand total to somewhere in the region of £4500. And it's all simply being given away.

I think I speak for everyone that has entered from here that we are truly grateful Tom! On the plus side, this is some excellent advertising for TTL, showing it's not just the amazing and ludicrous that you can do, it's also something that is incredibly fast and sleek!Quote

There is ALOT of work gone into this which people wont ever know about. Too much running around, ringing companies, making friends in high places, begging borrowing and stealing near enough to bring this type of competition for you guys.

So I'm thanking everyone on OC3d, EVERYONE!!!! because without the main guys, the admins and mods, regular punters, odd visitors and new members, none of this would be possible...Quote

And that's totally understandable, but if you win something as huge as Aries and not even bother to say "omfg it's come im so buzzing with excitment" and take a couple of pictures I think that would be ok, as long as you pop in from time to time Quote

The "best" or the ones who most deserve it never win in giveaways... usually it's someone who only registered so he could win this and then when he does win it never even thinks about OC3D(or whoever gave it to that person) again.Quote

only a year.because whats the point in having a computer if you cant do anything with it but fold?seems like a wasteQuote

I cant remember when I first hit this site but I would have to have been visiting for at least a year,And all my life is now is around desktop pc,s whether its for me or my family,not miserable little laptops but I have put the love and care into creating a PC for all my CREW which they appreciate more.BTW maybe if U won the Aries it might make you a tad less spiteful,What do you reckon???And I wont careQuote

Hi,I am writing this response to Denis er forgot the rest.To anyone like me who is untrained in PC building and modding OC3D is a gem of a site for reference and tips on the right way of doing mods and performance upgrades.Yes, I only have half a dozen post sent in but I first found the site in June 2008,and it usually one of my starting points to get me out of trouble when I am in the mud!And as for the Aries Denis tell me WHO WOULD,NT WANT IT????If I was,nt familiar with the site how did I know about the comp???Where else do you look when in trouble? Microsoft HA that,s a laugh.Anyhow Thanks for the help out of the bogs of the past OC3D and keep up the great work and comps! Good luck everyone,even you Denis C yaL8R GregQuote

I didn't see a picture with the panel yet. I think the panel was the last piece to go on and it wasn't ready yet when Tom assembled the system.

xD I've never bought a lottery ticket (although has bought me several tickets but oh well) but that's probably going to change since I'm only 15 so plenty of time for that. Scratch cards are things I can't see myself buying, and I like playing an online poker game every once in a while (no real money involved ofcourse)

Now... back to listening to John Mayall's BluesbreakersQuote

Lol i've only every played the lottery once, and never bought a scratch card! This is much bigger than either (except maybe the lottery :P) to us geeks on here

Wish I didn't have to get up early tomorrow. Someone should make a program that presses F5 for you constantly. It would save my button Quote

Not really, unless you're playing games at a hardcore level like Quake. Games like MW2 and stuff there is no difference.

A 5970 gets 50-80 FPS @ 1680x1050 so BF2 is either not optimized at all or very heavy. I can only run at medium / 1280x1024 with my 4770 and I still get lag when something explodes...

Doubt it, guys worked hard for the hardware in the current system, it's all about sponsorship, it's so hard to get. We managed to get sponsored by Qpad who was so tight with their equipment , they managed to send us T-Shirts and mats.

Considering we put in 300+ hours of work, not alot for the work.Quote
