HotHardware Memorial Day Sweepstakes Winners!

A few weeks ago, we announced an exciting sweepstakes in which we planned to give away a full AMD Phenom X4 9750-based system, complete with dual Diamond Multimedia Radeon HD 3850 512MB graphics cards running in a CrossFire configuration, and an awesome, custom painted Smooth Creations case emblazoned with the good ol' Stars and Bars!  Two runners up would also win AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ processors.  The response we received after the announcement was awesome, with hundreds of new members joining our community, posting thousands of comments throughout the forums and news.

Well the dust has settled and we’ve picked the winners.  Are you ready for it?  Drumroll please...And the Winners are…

Grand Prize!: Crisis Causer

Runner Up:  SqUiD267

Runner Up:  FSeven

Congrats guys!  You've just scored a killer rig and some cool processors!  On a side note, as you all know we also asked that participants make a donation to the DAV if possible, in honor of the Memorial Day holiday.  We want to thank all of you that made donations - you all rock! As a token of our appreciation, we here at HotHardware will also be making a donation of our own to the DAV.

Our last few sweepstakes have been such successes, we'll be doing another similar giveaway very soon.  So stay tuned for the next announcement - it won't be long!

To whoever that mentioned you can get burned out if you post a lot. It's true. I haven't been burned out on HH before as I tend to post here and there but regularly.

Why did urs come so late Crisis? I got my processor the monday after the annoucement.

It was sent by Smooth Creations.  Your CPU was just by HH I'm guessing.

Anyway, I'm having a problem.  I can't get it to post.  It turns on, fans spinning, but no display.  I've tried both video cards, and even my old Radeon 3850.  None give a display.

hmm ouchies... xfire me @ gasstronamicle and i can walk you through some stuff...

most important is, do you hear any beeps? if so how many? and can you describe them


 

0
+ -

No beeps heard.  I don't think there's a bios speaker.  The motherboard has FF on it lit up in little letters.  Know what this means?

I've tried dif ram combos, unplugging all drives, resetting CMOS.  Nothing yet.

ff means everything is ok....

im going to do a bit of research on your problem.

when i got ff, it meant that the jumpers werent in the right spot, did you try fixing the jumpers for the cmos? check to make sure your video card and everything is plugged in

0
+ -

Yeah I've tried messing around with the jumpers.  I just built the computer on static bags, to ensure no shorting.  Only components are Mobo, RAM, Video Card, PSU (plugged into 24pin, 8pin, gpu), and the cpu + heatsink and fan + fan plugged into mobo.  Still not posting.

I'll try a little more with the jumpers.
