Snow White 2011 Competition

The wait is over!

  Snow White 2011 Competition  


Snow White 2011 Competition

Competitions here at OC3D have been getting gradually bigger over the last few years, our New Year tradition started back with Arora 2009. Arora was a House of Kolor Kamelion custom painted custom modified system, skip a year and we gave away the ONLY Mars GPU that Asus ever allowed out for a competition and not only that but thanks to some close work with the guys at Bitspower we had a waterblock made for it as well!

The Standards have been set incredibly high, all our own fault really but keeping with the tradition of surpassing the previous year made our job even more of a mammoth task this year. White for systems is a personal favorite of all the staff here at OC3D so we felt it necessary to impose our love of this on to the readers and try to educate you all in the awesomeness of white!

Mushkin were very much on the same page as us when it came to the wicked white and amazingly agreed to my cheeky request to custom manufacture white heat sinks for their amazing Ridge Back ram kits. There are literally only a handfull of these sticks in existence and yep you guessed it they are only available here at OC3D. So if you want White ram you had better hope you win the whole white system to go with it!

I'm looking at water cooling but a watercooling loop usually contains parts from different brands and so it wouldnt be cooling from just one brand

Would have to be a solution like the H50/H70 then, except corsair isn't from Austria (I think)

Arctic cooling sprung to mind but that's swiss Quote

Sorry me being a thicko this morning, lol. Should've shared it but thought anyone going to my profile could see it. Need to read the Profile FAQ . Didn't give it away though but I think I've figured it. Was also confused Tom by you saying you wouldn't be posting the next clue until today. Sorry.

Mushkin RAM for sure :-) some 2000MHz Radioactives for the top rig, 1600MHz Ridgebacks for the middle build and a decent 4GB corsair kit for the lower build. Great prizes!

NZXT Hale90 PSU for the middle phantom build also.

And enjoyed the budget build review nice little power box, getting similar vantage marks in a gaming laptop costs you like double to triple the price haha. Would like to see a competitive benchmark set between the 3 machines before their sent out.Quote

Well nice hint there!

Looks like we are going to have some AMD 69xx series cards in there (6970 in rig 1 and 6950 in rig 2 would be my guess)

Really getting excited about those rig! Great job TTL!Quote

TTL you are a miracle worker, 6900s xD I wonder if they'll be crossfired...

EDIT: What are the chances of TTL getting custom made white shrouds for the graphics cards?, he's already got custom made ram heatsinks.

He also said justing waiting on the PSUs...so his already got the 6900s in hand Quote

They produce PSU's, but they do not make cooling products. They are also part of the OCZ group.

Milo you misunderstand, Xochielt and I are talking about single SSD and the HDDs in RAID . Nothing to do with RAID SSDs. Pretty much it's stuff like this, http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/276715-12-x58a-ud3r-raid-bsod-disk-boot-failure and some other sources on OCN etc pretty much it's not all the UD3R v2's that are affected so don't take it that it'll guaranteed happen, it's just some are and how do you know before you get it... The UD3R was my choice before I found out about this as I like the board but meh and I'd still recommend it to others as long as theyre aware of this issue. User reviews are that pretty much everyone loves the board, so just keep that in mind, it's still great .Quote

Right lets get this started off, the start of the build for the third place rig.......



First look at the fractal, mmmm this is one sexy case



Gigabyte P55A UD4 - blue and white eh, who said it looked bad..... Just need the rig rig for it





Coolink Corator DS, we havnt reviewed this yet but I do have another one to cover later, Coolink is actually the budget arm of Noctua









HIS 6870 GPU, may not be a 6900 but this thing still pumps out the FPS.





Kingston V+ 100 64GB - Perfect size for a boot drive and a few games



The Uber sexy NZXT Hale90 PSU, this one of a 650w flavor



And the party piece, the one off, custom made, never seen before Mushkin Ridgeback WHITE!!!







Thats all for now!Quote

If you had actually "read the pages and watched the videos MULTIPLE TIMES" you would have known it's open the 25th.

Right, not going to say anything else cuz it wouldn't do any good Quote

17-12-2010, 02:06:59

Zeals
It would probably be some ridiculously hard question that will take 3 hours of Googling to find. Perhaps a multiple choice question along the lines of "What is the main colour of the Christmas Rigs?" with the answers White, red and black. And the people that answer it correctly will be drawn out of a top hat? Just a guess.

EDIT: Upgraded fans TTL you and your minions are miracle workersQuote

This competition it has got me bursting with anticipation. Rigs look amazing! Liking the white theme aswell. ChrisGT is right though, real community posters shouldn't have there chances decreased because someone on the internet happens to have found a way to get free stuff. Anyway, keep up the great reviews Tom and post some more pics!Quote

Dude I've literally never won a competition in my life.. but oh well.. when you enter a competition you enter it for a chance to possibly win.. As TTL said in his video literally 1000s of people entered last years xmas comp.. being 1 outta 1000 doesn't give you a huge chance but just be grateful to all the people working extremely hard that you get the chance to win something =]

If you listened to the video properly then you would have heard him say "the competition opens on the 25th" and also if you read the very 1st post here then it says a few times that it opens 25th =]Quote

Yes, it does.

This forum is a passionate forum for people who love computers and everything to do with computers.

Not a load of free loaders on the earhole for something for nothing.

It actually pains me to watch what's been going on in this thread tbh. I mean FFS you would think we are an impoverised nation of starving paupers the way some people carry on.

If you want a sodding hard luck story I could sit here and spool off a million. I'm skint, I live on very little money, I just bought myself a new PC because I don't like putting my hand out to no one. It's called pride and I certainly would NEVER embarass myself over a PC no matter how ferkin great it was.

I really can't wait for this competition to be over, the tossers all crawl back into the corner from whence they came and my blood pressure return to normal so we can get on with some overclocking porn without all this poo.

I tell you Tom you're a friggin legend for putting up with all this crap lol. You must have the patience of a saint.Quote

Alien I have been meaning to join the forums before but usually I sit here watching Youtube vids of random stuff (e.g. Random song ) or I'm at work.. As you know I am hoping and will be saving MAJORLY in the new year to try and get a decent rig put together.. I only entered the competition to be in with a chance to win one of these beasts =]Quote

Yeah, I made this account partly to enter the competition. It certainly gave me that much needed push to make an account. I would have just stuck with my account on aria.co.uk if it wasn't for the competition. Most of you guys seem friendly tho (if a tad irritable). So far I havent regretted it, and hope to be using these forums for some time. Is there any way to filter the entries? So that long time posters have the chance to get what they deserve, I would happily sit out as long as I knew someone who will take advantage of these awesome machines is going to get the chance. I have to admit I probably wouldn't be able to use one of these machines to it's full capabilities, but hey thats why I'm here.

Sorry if my last post caused any offence Alien, I can understand why you get annoyed as I would aswell, and we could have an entire philosophy-backed debate about peoples motives, as much as I like debating and furthering my opinion I dont think it would help much.

Any more pictures Tom?Quote

It’s a dam same your computer is pants. You know don’t you all think people with pants computers should have a better chance as they need a new computer But MOST OF THE PEAPLE HERE have better computer than umarabid and others. All you that have i3,i5,i7, don’t you think that people with crap computer should have more chance of winning. Well I think its wrong to just enter the comp if you have i7 computer or i5 or i3 most of us already have a decent computer but as always it’s the little people with poor computer spec always don’t win WELL I THINK ITS WRONGE .

Seems this comp is bringing more people to OC3D so many new accounts

The comp is open to everyone so I don't think because people have a new system they should have less chance of winning.

If it was that type of comp there would probably also be rules about being an active member to win etc, but there are no rules as to how many posts you have or what your spec is.

Hopefully some of the new peeps will stick around tho Quote

Is it just me that thinks this guy has probably made two accounts, the other being umarabid. It would seem if he was upset about his system specs he would post them, rather than adapting someone elses post and attempting to project sympathy onto them....Or it may just be my way of thinking.Quote

I'm guessing it's possible to make more than one account then? I was worried I may have just been overly suspicious. At least it will give us something to speculate about until we get an update on those rigs.

Well guy that thinks people with a crappy computer deserve to win more, how can OC3D confirm that the person's computer is legit. For example if it was if you have a old computer you have double the chance of winning, what's to stop someone from pulling out their old Pentium 4 computer from 2000 and saying "Hey guys I really need this. these are my specs give me the prize, here are pics of my crappy rig"Quote

first things first hats off to oc3d for a fantastic competition to be given the chance to win not 1 not 2 but 3 full setups is just awsome. the white theme is very appropriate seeing all the snow we are having its going to be a very white xmas for three very lucky people good luck to everyone the 25th cant come soon enough let the battle comence secondly for anyone whos got a sh@t computor enter the comp on the 25th you never know your luckQuote

We welcome all newcomers. People just for the comp are just as important with the COMPETITION as anyone else.

People that are regulars however are important to the forums and oc3d as a whole. There is a vast difference Quote

Noctua is a joint venture between an Austrian company Rascom and a Taiwanese company Kolink. Coolink is the retail arm of the Taiwanese company Kolink, hence why it's registered in Taiwan. My guess since it's a joint venture they share R&D, but Rascom has is more heavily involved with Noctua, while Kolink is more heavily involved with Coolink, which can explain why they are registered in different countries.

EDIT: Most of this information was taken from the Noctua and Coolink websitesQuote

Im really not feeling the anger in this thread, any one now acting the arse wether baiting or attacking anyone else will be exempt from the competition if not banned from the forum. OC3D is about a friendly happy and helpfull comunity anyone making things feel negative or dark is just not wanted.

Anyways, on a brighter note..... UPDATE

why not put the 1st place price in the phantom case and 2nd price in something you have laying around from a review ?

(just an emergency idea), or you could make it a day after xmas or 2days after xmas comp, sounds pretty original Quote

Why would you care about the total price? If you have done the slightest research about hardware then you should have a general idea of where this stuff fits in? Or are you saying you couldn't care what your winning, only it's price tag? If your into that then you should by from Currys, or some overpriced retail shop...Quote

Excellent prizes this year.

Just a small comment, you have the Coolink cooler installed backwards. If you look closer you can see that one side has fewer fins then the other, that side with the fewer fins is the intake, and the side with the denser fin array is the heat exhaust. So it should be rotated 180 degrees in order to be in line with the general airflow of the case... Not sure if it will work any better though.Quote

So you blow heat over the part with the most fins? naaaaaa its fitted correctly

NOTICE TO ALL

Any more bitching, arguing or winding people up and you will be exempt from the competition if not banned from the forums.

A select few people here are ruining it for every body else and I really cant be arsed with it. The team at OC3D have put a massive amount of time and effort into this competition and I will not have a few idiots ruin it.Quote

Hi Tom, just want to say you, and the team, have outdone yourselves....again, seems peeps have to say that after every major comp though?

Before anyone says, ref peeps that dont post often, that would be me I like to read, but tbh my pc skills and knowledge are much less than most here, so I read, and try to learn, and wait for the comps to try and win

Anyway, the reason for my post:

Tom, just an idea about your delayed case, this in essence will give you more time to enjoy the holidays, just delay the 1st prize, you can still make the draw, then the winner can see it being built through your pics and videos, I would very much like to see my prize being assembled Quote

Before anyone says, ref peeps that dont post often, that would be me I like to read, but tbh my pc skills and knowledge are much less than most here, so I read, and try to learn, and wait for the comps to try and win

Anyway, the reason for my post:

Tom, just an idea about your delayed case, this in essence will give you more time to enjoy the holidays, just delay the 1st prize, you can still make the draw, then the winner can see it being built through your pics and videos, I would very much like to see my prize being assembled
Why so hasty, Padawan?Quote

Im not saying he should, just saying that I know Tom has a lot of pride in doing what he says he will, but clearly the weather has been a bit of a sod, to say the least, and as the competion is going to run over the holiday period, then why not take advantage of the situation, and basically have a competiotion where the winner is actually seeing their prize assembled Quote

Tom probably treats him with a game of Crysis on the rigs if he makes the tea to Tom's standards Quote

Tom was giving us clues about the parts that were going to be in this rig. So everyone was trying to guess the parts of those rigs based on the clues, if somebody was right Tom edited the first post and put in the correct part.Quote

Ive had the flu in a big way this week so Im a bit behind schedule and it seems the german coversion for white means black. So the Collosus is now not the 1st prize case the Phantom is.

God bless Paul @ Quiet PC who is trying to 24hour me another R3 in time for tomorrow so I can try and get the number 2 rig done.

I think in all honesty Im going to delay the start of the compo as theres just too much to get done what with these to build, the compo to arrange AND 20million sandy bridge boards to do for January Quote

Hope you get better soon dude! And don't worry white doesn't mean black in Germany

Look after yourself first and then think about the compo, I know you are already pulling some gigantic hours to get all this stuff ready in time.Quote

My current PC is 6 years old, and I had decide to buy a new AMD one. But because of your videos that's all changed. I am now going to build my first **overclocked** Intel PC, assuming I don't win this prize.

Thanks Tom for making those videos, I'm new here, and I haven't in my life armed a desktop or buyed one, I just have my HP pavilion laptop since 3 years ago, and now I think I'm ready to buy my first custom-made desktop (want it for gaming)

But first I'm watching all the custom rigs you're making and learning what to use, and Im checking the gameplay of crysis in the videos!

I'll keep logging daily!

Happy holidays to you Tom, I'm Francisco from Mexico, and Happy Holidays to the OC3d staff!Quote

Watch the video!

But yes,

delays in getting the case for 1st prize, and an already busy time for the team have meant Tom has had to slightly delay the comp.Quote

Yes it has been delayed due to the first price arriving two weeks late. Also it was a black normal version and not the white window version, so TTL delayed the compo, because of other stuff that has to be done first.Quote

Just subscribed to you on youtube about a month ago, love the videos. Obviously I am here for the competition. I watched the video over, kinda shocked the only requirement is that I make a forum account. Heck it got me here, but I will be around. I live in the US, and I will be glad to pay buttloads of money to ship if necessary

In the past for hardware Ive always used the neowin forums, and newegg forums. (Remember I am in the US)

Just getting into overclocking for the first time in several years. On vacation now but when I get back I am going to bump my i7 920 up from the 3.4ghz auto overclock from my mobos tools.

Cant wait to officially enter looks like some really cool hardware to win.Quote

I dont normally venture out of the Folding forum but im glad i did, what a comp! This place rocks for giving stuff away

Mind you from a folding point of view id rip those ATI cards out in a split second & put something in that produces decent ppd

Oh & that Hex for folding would be Quote

I like that GTX but, all white?? is a bit annoing no?

I think that a bit of contrast is good. That is what the Gigabyte Motherboard and Graphic card are doing in the rigs.Quote

Best thing about white, it goes great with the Noctua cream and brown =D. Reminds me of chocolate for some reason...Quote

It looks nice the 460. but keep in mind that the 570 is going to come soon with a white pcb. Thats what the rumors say though Quote

Man these guys have to be the most generous people in youtube, i mean ive seen other people giving away stuff in their channels but usually first they ask you to subscribe and thumbs up all of their vids, and usually they give away a shirt. Good luck to all i would be happy with any rig, thanks!!!!Quote

In the beginning people had to chip their messages in rock. This took a long time and only a select few were taught the alphabet. Then came the pen. And some more were taught to write, this was for bookkeeping only becos business must move on (according to some). And then the computer was pulled from the muck and delivered unto the people, and there was much schooling and typing. And the people looked, and were puzzled, and they were sore with dismay. For they realized the schooling hadn't taken and the cats had been purloined by siblings, and being posed in front of web cams. Soon, there will be no schools, and the powers that have money will not want to educate the people... and they will no longer be able to afford the computer. But there will still be rocks.Quote

The beginning of the contest is when Tom gets a chance to build the rigs, from that point it will stay open for a period of time for people to enter, and then the winners will be drawn.

(I assume thats the process)

At the end of the day, it doesnt really matter what determines the start date, just come back to the site, if its on, there will be a fairly prominant article on the web site, and page 1 of this thread will have more videos, and a date.Quote

Hi all!

Tom I would have a question. Don't get me wrong, the rigs are incredible but there is a very very little mistake in the white theme. If you want a mostly white rig in all piece, than I don't really understand why did you choose neon green fans.Because there are the Artctic Cooling's fans for example. The most of them are white. So, tell me, if you want to make a white theme, than why didn't you choose white fans?Quote

If you listen he says he uses them to add "a splash of colour" to the rig, and I expect they are better fas then the CM ones .. Just a guess =]Quote

@shadowwolf, you should also remember that Tom has done his best to make these rigs silent, and not everyone makes white silent fans, so the odd bit of colour for the sake of no noise is more than worth it.Quote

08-01-2011, 05:29:59

kyle9600
he mentions it in the videos about contrasting with black parts aswell as trying to keep it quite, while there are white fans you still need colour in the rig somewhere or all white would just look crap, you need something else and he mentioned it in his first videoQuote

Thanks for the ansswers, and yes, you are right, there have to be something what is add some colour to it than, to be monoton.

chudly, yes you're right. A silent PC is really earns more than a "just-to-get-good in color" PC.sry.

And ChrisGT i didn't say that I wouldn't like them, or I think they are c**p because of the colour of the fans. There was just a question in me - but i wouldn't have if I listen to the video carefully (sorry guys ) - and I didn't know the answer so I asked it. So please don't blame me with something I didn't do. And just to be right, I also mentioned firstly in my commnet, that "don't get me wrong". That would mean this.

And thanks again for your patience and replies.

I can just barely run Sims 3 and thats on low graphic setting, I do a lot of video editing and Photoshop. My system is so dang slow. I would be thrilled to have something 1/3 as powerful as what you guys are building in the contest.

Heck, my power button broke and I am using 2 wires that I have to literally hot wire to turn the rig on and off.

She is Fat, ugly and slow but cant complain too much, she runs and gets the job done.

I sense much NT in you.

NT leads to Blue Screen.

Blue Screen leads to downtime.

Downtime leads to suffering.

NT is the path to the darkside.

Something like this:



Note: Edited in Paint for 10 min. I know quality sucks XD Is just a color invertion.

Who painted the case and put the Logos on? Or did you order it that way. Looks good. The case design reminds me of something between a Cylon and a Storm trooper. Quote

To be honest, I like the 2nd price rig the most.

It has not that less power than the 1st price rig and you can unlock the 6950 to a 6970

and the case is just stunningQuote

This is a brilliant competition, I only found out about the comp yesterday because I've actually stopped viewing the youtube vids as I mainly use the website now, I thought I missed it so I'm glad you've only just finished first prize. I came across your website a couple months ago as I am in the market to build a new PC as my last PC died a very long slow death, I was thinking about a 950 and suitable motherboard. The reviews are great I'm looking forward to the reviews on the mid price P67 motherboards. The builds look good, keep up the good work Tiny Tom.Quote

970 looks amazing! I am, maybe slightly, a little bit, kind of, in love with OC3D at the moment, I'm not gonna lie. Sitting here, on my 5 (yes, 5) year old laptop, which decides to freeze on me during the most trivial of tasks, like opening Google Chrome, or, or even thinking about what I want to do next. Yes, even that scares the little s**t half to death. Rant, officially, over. Love love love love love love!Quote

Well, being completely honest... I use this website, but its way to hardcore for me, so i stay away from it sometimes.

ANywho, i'm just posting this because Daym thats a lot of free stuff to give away. If i win, and i doubt i will cause this is my first post, i dont need soo much processing power, i'd do two things:

#1) I'd dedicate the computer for a min of 80 hours a week for 40 weeks out of the year for folding @ home for another user's (ottoyu34), working with team "ASUS Republic of Gamers", or overclock3d's team, either way, i'd be happy contributing!

#2) Donate it to a school/ school of either your choice/ my choice/ community that needs it the most for practical use. Perhaps running a basic server or something for rendering school multimedia projects.

I dont want to suck up, but if there is a chance for me to win, I wont show humility to get it.

Cheers from Toronto!Quote

Drool.....

Oops sorry about that, i7 970 6 cores and 12 threads of rendering goodness. NH-D14 to keep it cool. Not to mention that SSD. How about that motherboard. Nice clean power, 1000 watts (how many joules is that)under the skirt. A unique set of ram. Dressed up nice in that sweet case. Almost forgot everybody loves a 69xx. Hmm.. that is to say everyone loves a Radeon 6970 graphics card.

If I went to far on the innuendo scale let me know. That said, don't blame me, I didn't pick the parts

I'm guessing it infringes on one of the requirements:

"Your avatar must be no bigger than 150 pixels by 150 pixels in size.

Uploaded avatars from your computer must be no larger than 50 KB.

The following file types are allowed: gif,jpg,jpeg,png,php"

That or if it came from a link, you don't have server permission or link is dead most likely.Quote

It's annoying how everyone thinks of Nazis when they see the Swastika, despite it's origins being thousand of years before the Hitler was born. But the Nazis made it taboo to use it.

Back onto the prize rigs. First place rig, looking good as usual, and Tom when are we going to be able to buy some of OC3D fan badges? Also love the overkill for powersupplies, gives us room to chuck in more graphics cards =DQuote

Yeah, it's going to be up when Tom decides to start the competition, he said it would be around 8pm on friday, but I'm guessing it wouldn't really matter if you enter straight away or later, so yeah keep an eye out tomorrow, unless Tom wants to be evillllllll.Quote

on a side note, tiny tom, you do a really fantastic job of laying out information in an informative and entertaining way. I recently bough the rasa 750 rs360 kit thinking it would include instructions (crazy though right), but it contained nothing. if it wasn't for your video on an intro to water cooling i would have bashed my own head in with that silly radiator. :-)

much thanks.Quote

Man, for real, I knew about this giveaway for some time now, didn't really pay much attention to it until now, didn't seem like a big deal at the time. But man, that changed.

Honestly, this has got to be the most frakin' coolest thing I have seen lately. I wasn't really much on online communities, forums and such until I started searchin' for reviews on parts for the pc that I'm planning to build. Anyways, from google to youtube, came across a video of Tom's review on a Noctua fan, loved it, subscribed, came here, mostly read everything, just to catch up, registered and now this.

And sht, maybe these kind of giveaways happen more often than I realize, maybe I'm just a noob for getting so excited, but it sure is my first and I do try to make the most of it.

So yeah, that's pretty much what I had to say, good luck to everyone, hats off to Tom for all his input and may the best random generated number win.Quote

So then guys, if someone from Team Redline is lucky enough to win one of these, after you've ripped those ATI cards out what ya gonna put in there? im thinking maybe the new GTX560

Chances of me winning are slim to none cos i dont win ****, done to many bad things in the past & god hates me Quote

U keep the ATI card and put another one in since two ATI cards are better than one Nvidia cardQuote

I'm not sure anyone else would do this BUT...

If i was actually lucky enough to win one of these then after i'd ripped the ATI card out i'll put the card up for a FREE compo so if i do win you can hold me to that...but like i said i dont win **** so Quote

You know when you think you have a chance to win something when (let's be serious) the chances are next to none, but you still go on crossing your fingers anyway? One of those moments guys Good luck to all. But mainly me. But good luck to all. Although I'm going to win. But good luck. ...I win.Quote
