This is so cool! My first top level video card since the VooDoo 2 days!

omegadraco 3 years ago

I can't wait to use this motherboard which I think I am going to have to go with the X79 as the base for a new rig :)

Going to have to build the rig and take some pics though I think that might take a little bit...

OMG, I won a tablet! Sweet!

I'd just like to thank HotHardware and the sponsors for the contest and the community for just being awesome people, without you there wouldn't be no HotHardware. Can't believe I won!

I'll send in the info. Again, thank you HotHardware!!!

EDIT: Forgot to include this; congrats to CDeeter and omegadraco for their wins. Their contributions were very great indeed and they seem like the most worthy people to win these prizes. Plus they're just really sweet guys you know, I really hope they put their newly won hardware to great use.

I thank you for sticking around and giving meaningful responses, not to say the other winners didn't as they did as well. I am more then happy to see a contributor win opposed to a user. Congrats use it well!

Got my X79 tank of a mother board today. You would not believe how heavy this thing is. Here are some pics... I cannot wait to drop a proc in this thing and have a rocking build. I promise to take some photos of the build when I manage to get the rest of the components together though that won't be for a little while.

Got my 2 1/2 year old daughter to say w00t w00t for this board lol. Thanks Dave, Marco, MSI and the rest of the HotHardware staff, and of course the great community for making me want to hang out here Smile

All the goodies :) SATA cables, backplate, SLI cable, USB 3.0 ports for expansion slot, ESATA for expansion port. Oh and the ever so handy dandy cheater connectors for the front panel that rock.

Giant Military Class III heatsink :)

ME... with a very bright and shiny board... And a very old computer I am working on for a friend.. That's my 4 year old rig in the background that has not seen an upgrade in probably 3 years.

Happy Holidays to everyone I hope you have a great one.
