First Winner - NZXT Phantom Black

OC3D at i40

First Winner

There is one thing we always love to do here at OC3D, whether it's our monthly competitions or the huge full system giveaway in January, it's let someone have a better PC than the one they own.

The first lucky gamer selected is Nathan Wheatley who is 24 and from Worsal. His current rig was this very old Thermaltake V9 that we think he picked up off the Ark.

Internals consisted of a Q6600 on a Asus P5P4TD Pro motherboard, running a Palit GTS250. A 520w Trust PSU tried its best to supply some power to the whole thing which was kept cool thanks to a Cheese Grater. Sorry kept cool with a Thermaltake SpinQ CPU Cooler. We're not having that.

With huge thanks to the generosity of companies who also love to see those who are deserving get some free gear, Nathan will be able to spend the little time he gets away from his three children, gaming with far more efficiency. 

He's now the proud owner of a Black NZXT Phantom case. This is a pre-production sample. The stock for the retailers hasn't even left Taiwan yet and you wont be able to get your hands on it for another couple of months.

Inside that much better case he has a 650w NZXT Hale White PSU which should finally mean his rig has clean power being delivered to it rather than the Trust efforts. We're also thankful to Kingston for providing a 4GB 1600MHz kit of their excellent Kingston HyperX now nestling inside Nathans rig.

The CPU is kept cool with the Corsair A70 CPU heatsink, and the whole thing is kept tidy and flash with some NZXT braided cables and LEDs.

It's great to see a really nice guy able to have his system upgraded thanks to OC3D and our sponsors. Giving things away like this is a first for a Multiplay event and OC3D are very proud to be able to make thoroughly deserving gamers happy like this.

And here is Tom giving Nathan his prize, following a frantic "live" upgrade. So hard did we work that Mr Logan didn't even have time to re-do his shirt up. Nobody can say we're not committed here at Overclock3D.

Lucky mofo. I am stuck with crappy DDR2 800MHZ ram at the moment. I could badly do with that ram upgrade. My case and PSU are good though. Im going to try and get a core I5 upgrade soon with 2x GTX480 , but it will take me 6 months to pay for it.Quote

Only just managed to check up on the i40 coverage. Great job Tom & Lasher - Enjoyed seeing an insiders view of the event! Tom sounds proper rough at the end!

Love that case you gave away to Terry Carr. You couldn't have chosen a more deserving winner for it.Quote

Evening all, Terry Carr here,

Just a note to say thanks to the guys at OC3D. The new case is working wonders and with a few tips from Tom around my memory not being set up correctly, I now have a faster rig as well.

Rebecca is loving it and has asked if next year you guys might upgrade her pink one. Its hard to explain to a 7yr old that she has a slim chance but shes loving it all the same.

Thanks again guys it is much appreciated.Quote
