OC3D 2012 Competition Madness

2012 Competition MADNESS


Competition now closed for entries


Its that time of year again....


January can only mean one thing here at OC3D, its the time of year the natives start looking depressed because their Christmas Credit card bill has arrived, the alcohol has finally run out and you are all going through your own minor form of cold turkey as your liver finally gets a chance to try and rejuvenate.

Well the whole team at OC3D share in your pains (some more than others liver wise eh Tom!) and we take it upon ourselves every year to brighten these dark days with one of our competitions. We have set the bar increasingly higher over the past couple years to the point where we didn't think we had a hope in hell of managing to top it this year.

Thanks to a combination of support from Gigabyte, Kingston, Enermax, BitFenix and nVidia we think we may have just about managed to beat the epic levels of prizes from last year! Lets take a look at what is up from grabs.

2nd Prize

And I though last years systems were epic.

Modded cases.

2133 RAM.

X-series processor and bundled 3D monitor for first place.

Custom watercooling.

You guys have most certainly topped last years prizes.

Thank you so much just for the chance to win these prizes. Quote

No that's fine mate, all you entries still count. The system allows a max of 3 entries per IP and each of those must be from members of your household.

Also to answer a previous question someone asked, if you get an email saying "you are already subscribed" this just means you are already on our mailing list. Your entry will still be accepted seperately.

Hi guys, new to the forum, just wanted to say what an insane competition, so thanks Tom / OC3D team / sponsors! I wish all of the competitors the best of luck!

I was just wondering about these off shoot mini competitions that will be running as well as the build threads / videos Tom said he will be doing. I have open tabs dedicated to this thread, the youtube, Facebook and OC3D front pages, but otherwise would the long term regulars give some advice about where or how to look for any further additional information on this project?

Many thanks, np.Quote

IIRC he's shipped filled watercooled PCs before and thanks to the 7/16 hose 1/2 barb technique he uses they didn't leak.

But I have no idea how far he shipped said PCs.Quote

Dang Tom, too bad you do not have just one more PC in the comp, even a small cheap lap top.

Seeing as how this it the 2012 comp, and 2012 as we all know is the end of the world, you could have named the comp something to do with Apocalypse, then named each of the rigs after each of the 4 horsemen...

4th place. Conquest

3rd place. War

2nd place. Famine

1st place. DeathQuote

22-01-2012, 07:26:25

SieB
I didn't -1 ya, but anyway the 4th horseman is Pestilence, also known as Plague.

Good idea though, not the extra PC part but for the theme Quote

just watched the video, brilliant stuff. i know you want the naming thing going on over at facebook but could the folk who don't use facebook chip in names on this thread.Quote

i hate facebook so much and i don't want to create an account on it, that's why i joined the forum.

my idea for the prizes name comes from batman and the fact that nvidia was involved in the development of the game.

3rd - Poison Ivy

2nd - The Riddler

1st - Joker

not all of the are black and green but what can i say, batman is black.Quote

Thats what I always thought, but researched it to be sure and it turns out its actually Conquest not Pestilence as most think. Though Pestilence would be cooler as far as a set.

"Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death

This interpretation replaces Conquest with Pestilence (i.e., infectious disease), and is generally espoused by those unfamiliar with the actual Bible texts which describe the Four Horsemen. Though it is apocryphal, this interpretation remains most commonly used as the basis for popular culture's uses of the Four Horsemen concept, including in the famous woodcut by Albrecht D√ľrer.[27]

The origins of the name "Pestilence" as a distinct Horseman are unclear, though certain Bible versions, such as the Jerusalem Bible and the New International Version do mention plague in connection with the Pale¬órather than the White¬óhorse."Quote

Never heard of him being called Conquest until I read your post tbh, everything I have ever seen about the 4 horsemen (which isn't much) has referred to him as pestilence. You learn something new every day

But yeah pestilence does sound cooler than conquest especially as a name for one of the rigs.Quote

I thought I was allowed to enter with a lot of emails. So all my entries are now banned, and I can't enter anymore? I'm sorry Tom but I think this is unnecessary, since you could very easily bypass this by simply using either a proxy, or by having a dynamic IP address and reset your router. I really want to be in the competition and it would be nice if you could change this, or at least fix so I am in it with 1 of my emails.Quote

I've seen far too many bob1@aol.com, bob2@aol.com, bob3@aol.com entries all from the same persons at the same ip's.

Multiple entries are allowed so that family members under the same roof can enter, but more than 10 is taking the mick.

This morning I had to delete over a million (yes 1,000,000) from a single person!

If you re-enter again you'll be fine, but I will be going through and nuking the bob1,bob2,bob3 addresses.Quote

I honestly think I am getting old or is my moral compass set so differently to everyone elses???

I have 3 or 4 email addresses and in fairness could use them from different IPs but the one entry I have done with my usual email address is my entry, I get my newsletters etc so am happy with it. It's a lotto and while you can buy as many tickets as you want for the lotto I think in the spirit of the competition and more importantly the spirit of this site, ONE entry is enough for me, if it gets drawn then my luck is in on that day and i WILL go and buy a lotto ticket. Who ever gets the prize, their luck is in and I hope they have won fairly which would more than double the satisfaction in my eyes.

I wish you all good luck and hope that whoever wins appreciates all the work that goes in to what is probably one if the best "global" competitions from the best OC site on the Web.

Don't want to be the staff having to check all emails for stupid amounts of duplication- ouch!! time and effort....Quote

Yeah I'd definitely hope it was a bot - either that or he's immensely quick at typing!

Its funny people think they can get away with it really. 300,000 entries all in a big block 1-2 seconds apart does kinda stick out when looking through the results, and then to do the same thing 4 days on the trot from every-so-slighty different IP addresses as well!

I'm lenient when looking through the results and generally give people the benefit of doubt if they have a family of a few people all entering from one IP. Sometimes it can even be a university of 20-30 people all going in from the same IP. But we aint silly here and will quickly snub those who take the pish Quote

It's unfair to the other participants and that many entries in that amount of time is surely some sort of script.

I'm curious as to how many entries there are so far without the blatant cheaters? It's ok if you can't divulge that info.Quote

Yeah we want to make it as fair as possible. Generally I'll vet the results as best as possible before we call a winner, and then once a winner is selected also check their details to ensure I haven't missed anything.

As for number of entries so far all I can say is that its nowhere near a million Quote

Don't worry, pal! I'm also with a single entry. I suppose many ppl will stick with a single entry.

And about winning. Could be worse. Cause I won 1 time from almost a half hundred efforts. And even then, I didn't get the prize I've won So, good luck to you, and to everyone else. Don't loose hope, cause you don't loose anything, until you actually have won something.

[offtop mode on] You see, it's common amongst ppl who own zalman think that way- I wish it could perform for the money it costs and looks. The most rubbish coolers I ever seen. The fans that are worse and even louder than cheap noname Chinese ones. [offtop mode off]

whaaa ? and.. Hia Tom !

This was run with the help of a little -2C air blowing in the window. Arctic Silver 5 was used and fans were set to low/silent mode. I'm guessing the room temps were 15-17C, and dropping.

Also, some credit has to go to the massive plate Asus put on the back of my HD 6870. I'm sure temps would be 3-5C higher across the board without it.

Whats there not to like ?

Didn't you do a Zalman(s) review ? searching...

Love the way you mounted that rad in the front. Do you use a pen or paint to "touch up" where you have cut? What size rivets do you use when you put it back together? Quote

i love the mod on the case tom quick question though with the metal still slightly on the bottom of the cage wont it be tricky fitting the barbs for the rad? or would you do what i would do and fit them before reriveting? also cant wait to see what you do with the window etc Quote

how to solve a problem like maria no optical drive....

people who have entered this competition, probably, already have a PC

so,

connect the two PCs together via ethernet, bluetooth or whatever, and share the optical drive from your old PC (and give full access rights)

or if you have a PC with a optical drive, and a usb just copy the contents on the stick and plug it in the new pcQuote

Im surprised that you dont put the reservoir right next to the radiator so you would have less tubing going on, then you could just get two L bends and have no leaks. and maybe just mod the side panel to fill it up and have a window to see where your fluid is at. Thats just my thinking though thanks for all the info you have given me over the years.Quote

Cool, lucky you. Am envious

Ours is still very old... it functions but must be at least 7-years old now, it was "top of the line" once upon a time; it is the replacement I got from Dell after I wrote Mr M. Dell a letter of complaint! Our 2.9-year old Dell "top of the line" computer died thrice in three months. Three on-site visits for the same problem; failed MOBO. 3 year next business day on-site maintenance has advantages when you're short of time.

Received a: Dell Dimension 8400

Pentium 4 processor 520 with HT technology

1024MB PC-4200 Dual Channel DDR2 533MHz [2x512]

160GB (7200rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive with 8MB DataBurst¬ô cache

128 MB PCI Express¬ô x16 ATI Radeon¬ô X800 XT inc DVI/VGA-TV out via S-video port & dual monitor support

Creative Labs Sound Blaster¬ģ Audigy 2 (Dell), PCI w/Dolby Digital 5.1 and IEEE1394

48x CDRW

16x DVD-ROM

3.5in 1.44MB Floppy Drive

Data/Fax/Voice Modem

MS Windoze XP Home Edition

kept the original monitor, keyboard, Razer Sidewinder mouse and Altec Lansing 885 surround speakers.

Would love to see my luck change (from being hit by a transvestite when it's raining women?) maybe one day I will be lucky enough to win one of the exceptionally cool (pun intended!) Tiny Tim OC3D rigs? Dream on Quote

LOL. I guess the next competition should have tight restrictions.The participants would ought to enter or choose the correct full name of Tom from few variants, in order to enter a competition itself. Such a small price for chance of winning a god-rig.

I suppose there should be an archive of best/epic name typos

As about topic- the Kryptonite seems to be a great rig even without any ODD at all. There still is a network card, so I don't see any troubles. Anyways, good luck to you, Tom. However have no doubts you'll gonna do it properly.

P.S.: Goblin is still looks quite enough for any possible task.

And yep, I imagine how damn tired Tom is. Fortunately, this doesn't affect on the mood and quality of reviews.

Yes, Good luck to everyone! What ever the winner would be, I think he/she would be happy owner of incredible work of Tom and OC3D.

Any from these prizes would be a joy and saving grace.

Entered myself, and bro entered too. 2 emails form IP. Don't need more. Am not greedy. Just in sake of fairness. We both need an immediate replacement, but if I will get one I'd give the rig to my bro. He has a BD on 28th. Quote

Tom, I do not think anyone will be upset about the potential delay, good things come to those who wait.

Envy Rig will live up to its name for the lucky winner.Quote

Its fantastic to see a competition that is giving away actual worth while things. Rather than just winning a new Motherboard or some RAM which some users then have to update their computers to utilize that component. So well done for having a well worth it comp.

N-V Rig looks like it will be pimp btw.Quote

It doesn't matter how long the contest would be going. The proper end result matters. And that's why TTL rocks. No cheap quick jobbing, no compromise. Am excited in continuation.

I am not sure I will win. And I know that doing 3 or even 10 entries is not kinda solution, or warranty at all. Because nobody on Earth can be confident in anything 100%. But whoever it would be, I believe he/she will have a good long use.

The winners (who ever they are) should be made to fold for Redline at least a bit, you know they get something SUPER nice from OC3D and so they give back a little.

(i know me and many of the folders here would have an IMMENSE increase in ppd if we won one can dream right ?)Quote

I find it interesting that quite a few of teh regulars have only put forward 1 entry to this competition.

To me it shows that they are not just here for freebies but for the forum and everything OC3D stands for, naturally winning is a bonus and I know that anyone with 1 entry who wins will still be around to post comments on the rig so we get a running update.

Looking forward to it and good luck all.Quote

I doubt I'd fold with one of these rigs if I won one.

I struggled to find a balance between my needs for using the computer and leaving work units to finish for the points on my current PC.

However if I did win I would have a spare rig wouldn't I? Dedicated 24/7 folding machine? I think so. Quote

I like it! I was gonna dump alot of money on a new 2011 rig, but with a chance like this to win 2 different 2011 rigs or a 1155 rig with a 2700K( more than I really need for what I do anyway), I can hold on to my money longer, work and save more.

When the rigs are ready, and the names are drawn, if I'm lucky enough to get one, than I have alittle money to make it my own(not that much is needed). If I don't get lucky, I can go back to stressing over which SSD is 2 points ahead of that SSD in this or that benchmark, and 4 sticks of 2133Mhz from that brand or fill all 8 slots of cheap memory from that brand(just so it looks good)

I'll take videos and post it on Youtube, unboxing, benchmarks etc. I think pictures would be the least someone could do.Quote

Indeed. There always are more important things to care about. Only life matters. But yeah, these rigs can do it much more pleasant.

I apologize in advance, for I won't be able to greet you chaps, or respond on email (in case of win). Because I will be kinda busy, at hospital for a week or so. The day the contest will end I will be under a scalpel. I will try to stay tuned, but wish you guys good luck in advance. This isn't joke or trolling though.

Take care And post the pictures please.Quote

Been following the reviews and benchmarks for years on here but have never been able to afford to build my own rig due to any money earned going on FOOD!.

Would love to win any of these, they all look freaking awesome, and you can really see the effort Tom has put into them- I would have to buy a camera purely to do an unboxing/review of one if i did!

And i hope whoever wins shows gives everyone a look into their prize

I helped build my brothers rig into a phantom last summer but any of these would destroy it!

Good luck to everyone, and cheers to Tom and everyone for putting the effort in, tomorrow night is gona be tense...Quote

I guarantee the 3 that win will also be thinking they have no chance in hell of winning anything, and then they will still not believe it completely right away, thinking maybe they are being messed with.

And please guys, Lets not have any crying or accusations of some kind of fishy stuff going on with the winner selections like a few sore contestants did last year.

It is great to have a chance to win something bitch'n and not having to really do anything for it other than give an Email addy and name that usually do not even get used to send you any adverts or anything. Heck, you are not even required to sign up or register on the site.Quote

last year - i was the 1st name to be drawn from the "babbage" computer, on-the-night...

i was in serious shock, and thought it was a hoax. it was not until people started saying "congrats dugdiamond", that it started to sink in

due to a hectic schedule, it was a few weeks until packing and shipping was resolved.

i, personally, shopped around for a reputable courier, and then sorted it all out myself.

(i even helped gameover get his rig too)

it was well worth the wait

firstly all the cpu's in the competition are better then mine, secondly everyone wants to win it doesn't matter what they have, thirdly i would put all the extra power of a second rig towards folding since i already fold 24/7 with my main, any of prizes would double my ppd, and lastly i'm taken by someone much better then anyone you could list .

I know all of us are eager to find out who won, but keep in mind the winners are randomly picked - so listing out specs or saying how you would fold 24/7 isn't going to increase your chances of winning.

I also hope the sour taste left in our mouths from last years comp by some sore contenders does not return, just remember we are lucky even to get a chance of winning these brilliant prizes and say a big thanks to all the sponsors and the OC3D team.

Good luck to everyone.Quote

Completely agree with you mate. This thread is starting to get a little out of hand and frankly pathetic.

On a lighter note, good luck to all who have entered! Whoever wins will be a very lucky lad/lass. Quote

A lot of pro gamers swear by the Deathadder... I wouldn't know, I've been using the Logitech MX Revolution for the last 3 years... yes, it's wireless and I use it for gaming Quote

This isn't a gaming mouse, so couple that with the fact it's wireless and you've got a pretty terribad gaming mouse. A mate of mine plays in some semi-pro CSS tournaments and he just laughs at me when I mention any of the hardware I have, mouse in particular.

It's a great mouse, just not for reaction based gaming because there's quite a lag before the pointer starts to move. If I move it slow enough, I can move it maybe half a mm before there's any movement. Not ideal. I had an MX518 prior to it except after two or three years the LMB gave up the ghost.Quote

don't worry guys, I am sure the winners will be posted here in the forum as soon as they are drawn. If you win you will know it as you will have a bunch of new PMs congratulating you right away. Also the Winners will be put on Page one of this thread not long after. Just thought I would mention for those thinking they will draw the winners and not say anything here on the forum and only through an email some days later.Quote

People need to relax and be patient. The longer they leave it the better, will show who actually cares about the forums and who just wants some free gear. Is an incredible opportunity to win an epic machine. Next there will be people complaining that is no operating system included. Just sit back, relax and cross your fingers.Quote

This thread is starting to feel like a bunch of vultures circling over a prize wildebeest carcass. I really like this site, and Toms videos helped me to build the best rig i could and he provides this service to us for free, i've also had good advice off the members here that's helped me be a better rig builder. That's worth more to me than any competition. The last thing i want to do is upset anyone but i really don't like seeing Tom and the mods being taken for granted Quote

Sorry fella, it wasn't aimed at you or anyone in particular really, it was just a comment on the thread and some attitudes in general.

And how are you going to announce a person if he/she doesn't have an OC3D account? Are you just going to mention his/her full name?

I was thinking more along the lines of a video when the winners receive the prizes, then it can involve a bit more than just like "THANKYOOOUU!" /crying/happiness etc. Quote

lol. Seems ppl went quite mad while I was absent. looks like I'm the single calm person here But yeah, must agree that N-V is just gorgeous. No wonder why, though.

This is however is so obvious that people come here due to really pathetic rigs and they have a chance to make some really significant changes. So I personally don't see anything unnatural in this "challenge of misery". Of course since it stays within reason. My only rig dies every couple months, fixed almost everything by this moment. If it will do it again, I will just throw it in furnace.

I don't see also, why ppl moan about moaning of poor ppl. If I had now a 2600K, and ~6970 I wouldn't even think of anything more powerful. Nevertheless, I would like to get one of these green magic machines of wonder. And of course to see happiness of others.

P.S.: I apologize, but wouldn't you mind to discuss mice/etc stuff in specific topics. I'm not Da Boss, however it is difficult to stay in touch with unnecessary info.

P.S.S.: Nice video, Tom. I hope you'll figure everything in time, Sir. Even if not, this is worth of waiting, even for year more.

Spring has sprung; today I saw a strange light in the sky and heard someone refer to the light as the "sun"? Strange...

Perhaps TTL could create a heat loss system where the computer user is used as fins (wears the coolant pipes) and I could then be warm again and finally do away with my long Johns?

Winning a prize like any one of these awesome rigs would mean I need never notice the UK's weather again! (crud weather IMO)

I think TTL should make 6ft heatsink blocks to mount on each side of the cases, but I don't think they'd ship intact or do the competition budget any goodQuote

20C is cold anyway; a winter temperature in NNW Australia.

I am envious of you living where it's 20*C at midnight

Frankly, 15 degrees is pretty warm, guys. Cold is -36. Here is about +8 at day atm, and it still warm. So I don't see why +20t ¬įC should be is somewhere near to cold.

Athlon x2 here. It doesn't even match as a CPU/SMP unit, and does not do the work in F@H at all. Not a single point due to dual-chip CF VGA (2x 550pt). I did fold with VGA but that finished it off completely
. So this is impossible to contribute any folding assistance with such machine.Quote

ur right, it closes at the end of march, and then he will post the winners.

for everyone else not paying attention: the winners will be posted when HE wants and when HE has the time for it so WE should stop bugging him and WAIT a little for all the FREE stuff TTL is giving US.Quote

Excellent comp which i have already entered when it was first announced. Of course winning any of these systems would be great and i'd be soo freaking happy if i won.

At the same time they wouldn't be able to match my own system in terms of how i'd feel about them. That's not to say there is anything wrong with them but nothing beats having a system you built, configured and setup by yourself even if like mines it's not quite the latest or highest end.Quote

I know im not a regular, and ive not had much of an input but still, it wont stop me wishing everyone the best of luck and hope the winners (when announced) put the systems to good use and enjoy them, and also find them a good stepping stone into the world of OC'ing and learning all about the art that it is! Opportunities like these done come around often!

But i do hope that they do continue to use the forums (that includes me, but im a lurker!), website, facebook, twitter etc to support Tom and the boys involved (with the community) to help continue make OC3D.net and TTLC the best source and community on the net.Quote

Well, now that the competition is officially closed for entries, I think that all there is left to say is..........

And now, the end is near

And so I face the final curtain

My friend, I'll say it clear

I'll state my case, of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full

I traveled each and every highway

And more, much more than this

I did it my way

Regrets, I've had a few

But then again, too few to mention

I did what I had to do

And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course

Each careful step along the byway

And more, much more than this

I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew

When I bit off more than I could chew

But through it all, when there was doubt

I ate it up and spit it out

I faced it all and I stood tall

And did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried

I've had my fill, my share of losing

And now, as tears subside

I find it all so amusing to think I did all that

And may I say, not in a shy way

Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got?

If not himself, then he has not

To say the things he truly feels

And not the words of one who kneels

The record shows I took the blows

And did it my way

Yes, it was my wayQuote

Why should the fact you don't know when its being drawn 'ruin' your mood? Is the fact that you have a chance of winning 1 of 3 amazing PC's for free not enough to just be greatful, no one should have a 'ruined' mood we should just appreciate all the hard work that goes into things like this. No one has to give you a PC if would rather not be inconvenienced.

Actually,its the best 8 bit game ever made!! The mighty ELITE!! Think Spectrum 48 and bbc micro era....i had it and it was bloody awesome,still a good playable game today...if you can do without any rendering and enjoy wireframe games.

i mean we are gamers, and imagine one day, you open the door of your house and you find this:

Custom BitFenix Collosus

Gigabyte G1 Assassin 2

Intel i7 3960X

Kingston HyperX 2133MHz 16GB

Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD x2 in RAID-0

Enermax Platimax 850w PSU

Definitely. Simply because so much more efforts have been put into this competition, so many power and emotions been spread to keep it going, and reach an end. I just wonder how patient Tom and the OC3D are that still haven't shut it down.

In any case, thanks for the opportunity, and if not, than be so. Good luck to all of you, and don't be jealous. I'm sorry for any inconvenience and abuse.Quote

The major point is that this isn't giving away some random HW, but exclusively assembled and ready, complete tested machines. I think the joy of realizing an amount of efforts put into these rigs, would be much bigger, than the feeling of winning itself.

Once again, good luck to everyone, and big thank to Tom, OC3D, sponsors for this contest. It is without doubts one of most anticipated things this year.

thank you.

i'm getting sick of everyone saying stuff like

"i have i rly bad pc,,,,,,,,,,,, plz let me win !!11"

It's an awesome compo and everyone should be grateful, but this is kind of pathetic.Quote

I don't want to cause a backlash or get myself banned lol it just baffles me how all of these new members feel they can say we need to stop moaning and complaining about our current PC's. All we are doing its keeping the thread going and giving people some sort of hope.

So just calm your passion and leave us to our own fun lol

However Its good the forums have new members.Quote

Chill down people.

Nobody is saying that "If I win" posts would double anyone's chances or saying "plz let me win".

No need to get so upset because of them.

If people have plans what to do with their old rigs, why wouldn't they be allowed to share them?Quote

I just got an idea. It might be silly enough. But I think someone else already thought about this too. But how about Tom and other OC3D crew will leave some signatures/autographs on the rigs? Maybe some badges, or just some felt marker. Just suggestion.

Maybe some trick with wires or something like that, to make a surprise bigger, and attract even more attention to the work performed inside the rig, to let ppl look more precisely at the things they got.

And yes, thanks to Tom and . Even if consider that only 3 ppl gonna win, Tom did a great job, by involving more ppl into watching awesome videos, and explaining how the job should be done.Quote

I think I'll be getting a new rig at the end of the month, so probably after the results for this competition are announced... so it'd be awesome to save some precious money! Either way, I'm sure whoever the winner is will be VERY pleased with the prize. Such an amazing competition.

I will use it to play games, rendering youtube videos, creating gfx including Cinema4D 3d rendering, Other 3d work, and other stuff I get the time for.

I would use it as my main rig as it is way better than the one I use at present. Some gaming, video editing, picture editing and watching some streaming videos etc etc. Don't think you can go wrong with any off them, 3 great rigs to win so good luck all.Quote

Here's just a thought, to all who say they would give it away to someone, why have you not got your friend/relative etc, to enter them self, they would then have 3 chances to win a great rig, as I said just a thought. Anyway well done TTL and Overclock3D for the chance.Quote

I'd give it to bro, in any case. I might be used for work, folding, games. Green Goblin is more than enough. However monitor is delicious too

Anyway, I personally consider this too selfish to use these rigs for gaming only. I think these rigs must contribute all the power for assistance and good of others in any possible way. It is gift, act of generosity, and I see only one possible way... No matter who it will be, these rigs should be joy, and a winner should help someone the way Tom does! Same sheerly and with a smile

Gonna take his old rig, for mine died 3 days ago. Need new PSU, MB, and VGA. SATA controller seems is... VGA is causing artifacts. However I am ready to wait as long at it needs.. The funniest thing is that he has rig older than mine, slower, and weaker by times. But it still works. Except monitor

P.S.: I gave him my MSI 6670 which doesn't work on my MB. Any advice is appreciated (private message) Quote

Now this is great news, Sir! Thanks.

Time to all of us rest and relax! All is done, so stay calm, and relax. Nothing you can do already. Stay calm is better for both who will get rigs or not. If you will win, and you calm, the winning and thank would be thousand times more pleasant then if you will feel excessive emotions and loose this moment. And for the rest non "The three", this would be great too, because you won't be angry and sad because of the fact. Nothing changes except own opinion.

Remember, if someone helps you, help someone else, who needs it! Life isn't end without these prizes, if you didn't put to many excessive emotions in the contest.

Take care! And cheers, Tom and OC3D!Quote

I'm pretty happy atm Aria gave me an awesome deal on an i5 2500k over Easter, hope you all enjoyed the time off work or school.

I was cutting down a willow tree today well more of a trim took ages to do and caused a huge mess to clear up, still nice being out getting some vitamins in me and thinking of the song Mr Postman while I worked away.

I'm thinking a NZXT phantom 410 and a H100 may also be coming my way soon, unless of course I somehow have the most joyous luck any geek could wish for

Good luck everybody

Just imagine the relief feeling, what this competition will be over. It took about 5 month to make it what it is now. I think Tom already wants to end this now, but will keep the results announcement just to torture worried lads. Quote

Must admit I am awaiting the winners to be announce although I never win anything, and never have my luck has to change at some point and this would be a epic time for that.

Torture....

Seeing as they know the names....

Perhaps if they took those names away from all the comp entries and announced those who 'didn't win' in batches.

Like if there's 1000 entries, show 100 names a day of those who didn't win. In order of the most forum post counts first.

Mate, there's always is more important and vital things to do, instead of staring at screen. And nobody owes to anyone. Everyone does anything by own sheer will. If everybody gonna understand that, the help would be more appreciated, and thank would be natural obligatory.Quote

The tension is rising so much, that only the toughest a coolest ppl will left, and others will become lunatics This will solve the problem with excessive amount of ppl, and Tom will chose from the ones that left. I bet he doesn't have the list yet, and just laughing at your insanity.

Nope! I'm doing exactly the same... well, sort of.

I've got to sell some of my old stuff and wait until I get some money towards the end of the month... but I've been so focused on somehow winning this competition (even though I really doubt it) that I can't even think about buying anything else yet! + Having to wait for ivy bridge...Quote

Yeah from what I remember from the posts made in this thread - Winners will be first announced here then possibly up to 7 days later they will be emailed, so if they don't visit the forum to check then they will be waiting even longer to find out.Quote

I thought the new ;letter was separate from the comp?? I remember someone saying that if they signed up to the news letter would that include them into the comp and the reply was "No the new letter is different from the competition and signing up is great but wont qualify you for the comp. you have to sign up to the comp itself"...

Anyways feeling abit better now, last night was really bad, I blame this intense waiting for the comp HAHA..nah only joking. GLAQuote

Good luck to everyone who entered. I've never really had an account on this forum, more of a youtuber but all the same. I'm pumped! I've gotta build a new rig this year, and if I won, I know it'd save me a lot of money that could be better spent on education College and whatnot. Anyways, Best of luck to you all!Quote

Np Since bulldozer was so disappointing, I'm going to be building an Ivy Bridge. I'll try to get more active in the forums anyway. I owe TTL that, considering I've been watching his youtube videos for a well over a year or so now.Quote

just a concern for any us winner. im not 100% sure about this so if im wrong great. I remember hearing something a while ago that even for competition's like these . You have to pay federal prize taxes. which is a % of the total value of the prize. so lets ay for the first place rig, id roughly value it in parts around 3000-3500 usd. 10% of that is 300 -350 + shipping. I remember for the monster modz competition for MMPCTECH the owner threw the computer on ebay because the taxes were so high it didnt feel like winning anything. Maybe if you sent this to the winner marked as a "GIFT" instead of a prize saying it is a us winner for any of them.Quote

11-04-2012, 23:06:52

J8ke
I dunno - $300 vs $3000, it'd still be a bargain imo........granted it might feel steep considering your winning a prize but at the end of the day your getting a personalised TTL rig which is just about priceless right?Quote

11-04-2012, 23:16:45

unknownuser200
well some people like myself would be forced to withdraw winnings on such a thing. 300 taxes+ 150 ish shipping (its gonna be alot with customs fees) your looking at a bit of money. Honestly im just trying to find out the stipulations of this, and make others aware of this.

http://www.trubritar...00/page__st__60

apparently the taxes are 25% of the value of the prize won. in otherwords 3000 /25% = 750 usd plus shipping. keep that in mind... maybe tom sends this as gifts when he mails them out?Quote

11-04-2012, 23:50:03

J8ke
Oh yeah - don't get me wrong, if the 'gifting' idea is dooable from TTL's end I'm all for it. And yeah, I know there will be a lot of people that can't fork out the cash to get the beast shipped.

It'd just be a bit sucky if due to too many people complaining about postage and taxes the competitions become closed off to those outside the UK or something.Quote

12-04-2012, 00:45:47

mrDMxtreme
he has always said that you have to pay shiping, so if you can't u should NOT have entered, its actually very simple because ur gonna end up wasting tom's time. think about it, if u win and u can't get it, and he picks another and contacts them and they can't and then he picks another.... etc... thats why he said from the start ur gonna win the rig, but ur gonna have to make arrangements with him to get said rig. It wouldn't be fair to close this comp to the uk since a lot of the forum members are word wide, from everywhere.Quote

12-04-2012, 00:53:12

unknownuser200
if its just postage... thats one thing... everyone aggreed to that.... but the taxing sux

if you read my post and instead of SKIM threw it.. my concern isnt shipping but the luxery taxQuote

12-04-2012, 01:19:22

C3mods
I talked to a winner of last years competition and he told me he had to pay around $250 US for shipping to the US, never said anything about having to pay taxes or such on it. So that might help some, and I also live in the US and that is what I am going by, is that we will just have to pay the shipping. Quote

Nope, Just pay the courier his fee to take car of everything for you. I payed my guy under $300 and gave him my home address in California and he took care of the rest. Here is a link to the guy I used if anyone ends up needing his service, I think tom knows him as well and can vouch for him too. http://www.ecs-iow.co.uk/welcome.htm He is still using his old truck pick and home page front page, that says Isle of Wight and Europe, but he ships international as well.

I even called the Customs in Europe, I cant remember exactly what they told me but it was basically I had no taxes to worry about on items leaving their customs, so no charges, and it is listed as gift or better yet, personal Items. They said if there were going to be any issues with charges as far as taxes it would be on our U.S. customs end, but there never was for me. It just showed up at my doorstep.

Like you I was also worried about customs, taxes, Paperwork, Not sure exactly what I had to do, etc. But I only had to get sizes and weight of boxes from Tom, tell my courier those dimensions, he told me what he could ship it for. Which turned out to be about the cheapest I could find. I sent him Payment by paypal, My addy and Toms so he knew where to pick it up, and made sure he would pick it up from Toms at a time tom would be available for the guy to come get it. But as far as Paperwork, customs and all that, don't worry about it, Just pay the courier his fee and he will get it done.Quote

Probably be tomorrow but it really does depend on when Tom is ready as he may be doing a video ready to upload once the names have been put on here, so that he can give the winners abit of fame and a mention in one of his videos.

It really is just a matter of waiting but I am eagerly awaiting the result's like everyone else is.Quote

Hmm.... as I see it... it is now friday the 13th, which is the most unlucky day possible, and since I ALWAYS is unlucky, this day must change my luck, since two negatives creates a positive, which again means that I win !!!!!! juhuuu !!!!!!!....

Aint logic grand ? :-DQuote

I was saving my 100th post for a great big thank you, but it's been over an hour and I'm still hearing 'never gonna give you up, never gonna say goodbye....' in my head. OK Tom, you win the prize for actually RickRolling in context as this comp has got me back on the forum. Now, can I have the antidote please?
