To be able to have a new system would be a dream come true havent had anything new for a long time.

NoRest4Wicked one year ago

I so badly need a new computer and this one would be perfect for me. I'm running a six year old machine with 32 bit Vista and only 4GB of RAM. My video card keeps overheating and shutting my computer down because the cooling fan no longer works on it. I've been a die hard AMD/ATi fan for a long time but it could be time for a switch to Intel/Nvidia. I'd love to win this. I'm sure my wife would appreciate it too because of all the complaining about my current machine that I do. Plus, I wouldn't have to spend the money for a whole new rig!

As much as I appreciate giveaways like this, I'd think it'd be cooler to host a video contest so not only does the staff participate in it, but the hothardware community can contribute as well by commenting and critiquing the video submissions. The highest rated video the hothardware staff selects, wins the prize!

...but that's just me.

westcott_chad one year ago

This is a pretty nice setup, I hope I win. I hope the HD is the 6Gb/s SATA. It doesnt have firewire but that's not a big deal. I have a SSD to throw into this as well. I'm not sure that the power supply is big enough. Gonna have to add a dvd player/burner to it as well. Still this would be a nice setup. Maybe more ram too lol

EDIT: Aww crap, here I go being all honest again: An E-ATX motherboard isn't really optimal in a 200R.  Somebody who is good at asking nicely should contact Corsair and let them know about this awesome public relations opportunity.

LATER EDIT: ^^Done. (For I have no shame.)

[quote user="eunoia"] An E-ATX motherboard isn't really optimal in a 200R[/quote]

I was kinda wondering about that myself. I was checking it out on Newegg, and the specs say it supports Micro ATX/ ATX. No mention of E-ATX. So maybe this will truly be a Marco custom!Smile

I could live with either OS but hopefully they just send the disc along so I could put it on an SSD

westcott_chad one year ago

I'd have to put an Office program on it too

Yikes! Umm, I mean Wow! It looks like EVGA opened up a portal into HH that can't be closed. I know y'all ain't mad at 'em. Am I right? Don't answer that because another portal may open up...into my mind...and you don't want to know where that will take you...because I don't even know.  Am I right?  Don't answer that.

KarelRoy one year ago

Last six-year back in 2007 ! i build my first costum-computer !

it was a build of 1450$ Quality/price for gaming and, i dont even buyed a case, i-made my own :P !

Was an Intel double 3.0 processor/ 4gig kingston ram / RoG Maximus formula One,Mother board / 650watt Corsair Power Supplie / Creative Sound Blaster Sound card, and i just take an Old normal case white .... and paint it with 1$ car's paint in cane ... blue and Black .. the result was looking really nice. !!!

and the principal piece was-THE video-Card : An eVGA GTS 8800 512meg .. its was new, and the first card pci express 2.0.

i dont know .. the card costed 450$ and was one the best on the market ... ( before the 8800 GTX at 600-700$ and the Ultra GTX 8800 at 900$ ) its was a beast ... made me play crysis and a lots of game ... i almost used it so much, the card broke in 2010 !

Now i have a build waiting for me in my closet : an Maximus Formula III mother board ( an discountinued piece ),with a intel i7 4 core at 2.9gigahertz and 8 gig of corsair dominator 1333 !!!!

i like So much bulding Computer for my-self :P

I belive u can put owever as much money in a case that you want .... but i go on quality/price for gaming

like an true gamer Computer is ranged price at minimum 800-1000$

I also spotted the EVGA 650 TI boost ;) !!!

Just out of curiosity, does the system come with an operating system?

I was just thinking that there are alot of people out there (including myself) That still run operating systems such as Vista, and also only have the 32-bit version... 0.o

I'm sure the winner would be able to get their hands on a new OS, but I just thought that I would ask.

Also, what brand and speed is the 8 gigs of RAM?

2- I can't work anymore due to an medical error and i can't afford an good build without big sacrifices.

3- If i win this build; i made the promise to give my old Dual 2.8ghz socket 478 to a poor child near me.

4- If i win this build; i made the promise to made an contest on my youtube channel to win the SuperNOVA NEX650G Gold PSU (Winner pay all fees)

5- If i win this build: i made the promise to upload awesomes videos on my youtube channel to hit the half million soon has possible.

6- I promise to made an full unboxing video, good critic on components with all free benchmarks avaible in 2013.

It's taken a while during other contests in the past, so all is still good.  It's certainly worth the wait.

Clixxer one year ago

Yes sir! Yeah when the contest first started I went and watched all the build videos I could find (props to Macro and Dave) and then when it ended watched them again and looked at dates when they announced the winners and saw that it would be a week or so. Like I said earlier while i'm waiting on who won, i'm more curious to the build video. I did do some looking up and the MB is only about an inch larger than a standard ATX board so it should fit in the case they choose but still wondering how its gonna look.

Kidbest100 one year ago

[quote user="Clixxer"]

[/quote]

Yeah I was a bit curious about that as well... A bit of an odd motherboard choice if you ask me, but nobody should complain XD

I went and looked up the Z77 FTW, and was a bit curious as to how it will overclock.  I went looking for reviews and stuff but couldn't really find exactly what I was looking for in the time that I had.  I guess the winner will have to do their research before they OC on that board XD 

(And if they aren't going to OC, they're a bit crazy)

Anyways, I bet that the EVGA Z77 FTW will definitely look massive in the 200R, and I kind of like that, but I'm not sure.  Some motherboards can pull it off, but to me it doesn't look good when you have a case so massive it looks too empty if you have anything on par or lower than an ATX board in it.  Unless you are doing WC of course, then those components take up quite a bit of room sometimes and make it look more natural.  

Johnny3D one year ago

[quote user="Kidbest100"]And if they aren't going to OC, they're a bit crazy[/quote]

I disagree. Overclocking reduces the overall lifespan of a machine. Some folks, like myself, want our machines to last as long as possible because we can't afford to be replacing them very often. I don't think that makes me 'a bit crazy'. So... if I win this machine, I'll keep it clean, cool, and running at stock speeds for years.

Remember... just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

To each their own though. :)

I won the FX-8320 build from HH's last giveaway.  I was able to get the FX-8320 from 3.5Ghz to a very stable overclock at 4.4Ghz on stock voltage.  That isn't going to cause in reduction in lifetime of the chip, as my temps sit around 22c at full load, and there's absolutely no voltage increases.

Of course this is only because I hit a wall at 4.8Ghz and decided to step it back for a while.  But the point is, you can OC without effecting the lifetime of your gear.

realneil one year ago

[quote user="Dorkstar"]But the point is, you can OC without effecting the lifetime of your gear.[/quote]

Agreed,....Manufacturers saw the public's desire to overclock and began to cater to those desires long ago.

Question: Why are some high-end CPUs sold in an unlocked state? Why do almost all Mainboards have a way to automagically overclock your system in their BIOS settings? Why are video cards built with OC leeway in them?

Answer: It's an accepted practice, and it's encouraged too.

PC parts makers provide software solutions to OC their products. They claim superior OC abilities in their advertisements too. They understand that people are drawn to faster products, and they willingly sell ~that~ to us.

Of course they ~all~ have disclaimers in their warranties that we OC at our own risk,...........

I disagree. Overclocking reduces the overall lifespan of a machine. Some folks, like myself, want our machines to last as long as possible because we can't afford to be replacing them very often. I don't think that makes me 'a bit crazy'. So... if I win this machine, I'll keep it clean, cool, and running at stock speeds for years.

Voltage and temperature can reduce the overall lifespan of a chip, but there are hardware options which can mitigate this. Sell the 3770K and get a regular 3770 then, if it has a "K", you must overclock. Dems the rules. Stick out tongue

I agree ! But you can run at stock for the first years and overclock it when needed with an OC Bios Profile.

The mainboard has Auto-OC setting in the BIOS that will OC the CPU a little without affecting the reliability. The CPU comes with Intel liquid cooling, so an un-aggressive OC is certainly possible without burning it up.

I would OC it a little.

I would have to test its limits, that is all I know. No point in having that cpu/mobo combo and not seeing what its capable of.
