Win the BEAST! HotHardware Skulltrail Give-Away!

We’ve got some exciting news for you all today!  To coincide with Intel’s official Skulltrail announcement that hit the news wire the other day, we’re announcing a sweepstakes of our own where you could win a full Skulltrail-based system, complete with dual graphics cards and a super-fast 10,000 RPM hard drive.  We’re talking eight-cores of benchmark busting performance here, and it could be all yours!

HotHardware has partnered up with Intel to assemble a complete Skulltrail rig that we’ll be giving away to a randomly selected contributor to our on-line forum and discussion systems.  The complete break-down of components in the system includes:


 

Processors: Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9775 x 2

Motherboard: Intel D5400XS ‘Skulltrail’

Memory: 2GB DDR2 FB-DIMM Memory

Graphics: GeForce 8800 GT 512MB x 2 (SLI)

Optical Storage: Lite-On 20X DVD-RW with Lightscribe

Hard Drive: Western Digital Raptor 150GB

Power Supply: Ultra X3 1000 Watt

Case: Gigabyte 3D Aurora (Black)

To be entered into the sweepstakes, you’ve got to be a registered, active member of our forum and a resident of the United States.  If you’re not already a member, you can sign up quickly and easily (and for free), right here.

From this point forward, we’ll be monitoring discussions on the site and will be randomly selecting a winner based on community involvement and contribution.  To increase your chances of being a winner, sign up for our HotHardware RSS News Alerts and we'll toss your name into the mix for double credit!  The sweepstakes will run through to the end of the month at which point we'll pick the winner (Feb. 29).

This is a huge opportunity for to you to win Intel's BEAST of a system.  Good Luck!

Isn't 3D rendering software pretty exspensive... if I had a rig like that I'd at least want to try my hand at some sort of 3D rendering to use the machine to it's full capacity. When I was a kid, I used to draw alot while attending the boys & girls club and can only imagine how much fun it would be to create things with real substance. Here are some things I'd like to render in 3D: A heavily armored mech with lots of insane weaponry, an assault helicopter with elements from Air Wolf and Blue Thunder, a futuristic car of some sort, a castle with a dark theme and a dragon circling above, a hot chick with lotsa random elements a la Wierd Science... I could keep going, but don't wanna bore anyone. Besides I'd probably have to start small and get the basics down before tackling advanced projects like those... perhaps rendering some basic objects like a bowl of fruit lol. It's fun to let your imagination run wild and contests are always a good way to get people pumped! Thanks!!!

jtm55 6 years ago

Hi All,

Rigs like that with the software cost thousands of dollars. If I'm not mistaken, these are the type of platforms used in Video Editing/Rendering. I'd be in Geek Heaven if I were to win. Whoever wins is going to be one Happy Person.

 I agree too. This Site has some of the Nicest folk around.

 I agree with enter that someone who has actually been here a while should win the contest and not someone that just joined the forums in order to win this.  But accroding to Davos post its going to be randmoized so i guess everyone has a equal chance Smile

Anyway, Good luck to all.

 

HH always has the most awesome contests.  Giving away the new ATi video card back in the day was nice as i remember smashing the refresh button waiting for you guys to reveal the winner.  hahaha.  For those of you just joining the site and are sceptical about you actually recieving this prize, believe me, if you are the winner you will NOT be dissappointed at your winnings!

Nice contest, But I'll pass as I'm not a forum regular here(I otherwise qualify though as I was born in the USA and I still live there), I'd just use It as a cruncher for Seti/Boinc 24/7 under the PC Perspective Killer Frogs. It would be just a 4th PC, the other 3 are all quad core PCs I've built(a QX6700ES cpu @ 3.3GHz, a QX6700 cpu @ 3.2GHz and a Q6600(B3) cpu @ 2.6GHz).
Dave_HH 6 years ago
OK, so WHY did you bother to register and post here? So you could pump your affiliation with the PC Perspective Killer Frogs? I know Ryan very well, good man, solid site. I don't see why you have to drop in and be down on things here though.

For the record, we're working hard on randomizing things such that, for this contest anyway (more coming soon), if you contribute positively, it won't matter if you're a veteran regular member or a newbie, just that you're not just wasting bandwidth.

That said, you're not off to the races here unfortunately, Joke. No offense of course but with a post like this, we'll probably pass too.

I'm only affiliated with the Seti team there(Not the website), The rest of the time I hang out at the Seti Forums at Berkeley. I'm a disabled person(I suffer from anxiety, concentration, depression, joint problems(Legs and Hip), back pain, weight, under performing thyroid & osteoarthritis, and so It's just Me and I survive on SSI, Do I think I'd win? Not likely as this will be the last post I make here as I like the website and the reviews(This place gets visited by Me everyday). Would It be nice? Sure, But like I said on berkeley thread below I doubt I will, As I've entered before elsewhere and not won a thing. In any case I've not mentioned this contest over on the Boinc Bar and I don't work for anybody, So I'm free to go where I want on the web. Besides I don't know If I could pay for more electricity than I do for My present 3 PCs and the summer cooling(swamp cooler only) costs are coming and I live in a Desert in Yermo CA. I don't mean any offense of course. I have bigger problems to worry about.

Wow, what an amazing contest, and surly one that many people will enter. Many people might know me from other forums ,but I know that I still don't know many of you guys here. I will try my best to contribute to this forum as much as I can, although time from school and other work make it a bit hard. I take many classes at College at the moment that has to do with Designing and 3D Animation, although sometimes we get projects that contain very high number of polygons and subdivision for high detail, and many textures on objects make it impossible to render some scenes. Many times I have to turn down on quality and disable AA to increase rendering time so I could make it to school with a rendered file. With this system I would be able to create great Designs, Animations, and Movies in time and I would not have to worry about rendering times as much. I also like to game a lot and play the latest games that are out, like Crysis, Call of Duty 4, Need For Speed Pro Street, and much more. Please pick me as a winner, and good luck to others as well in this competition. I will try to contribute as much as I can, and maybe I can fulfill my dream to continue the study of 3D Design and Animation with a great passion for the future.

Honestly I don't know much about F@H, but will look into it some more. My general understanding is that it makes scientific calculations that can be useful for research purposes right? The great thing about having 8 cores is that a person could run 4-6 instances of folding and still have a couple cores left to game, web surf, etc.

peti1212 6 years ago

Exactly, just what you are saying. Right now I am just folding for this team with one Core saving the other one for other things, although Folding @ Home should work only in idle processing, so basically you could run 8 instances of Folding @ Home and still not see a performance decrease, maybe a tiny bit, but not much.

Skulltrail brings new possibilities for CG experts. MoBo costing 6K (plus additional $s to build complete rig ) is out of reach --- to even above average enthusiast/Gamers. Gamers have to wait till computers games are optimized for two Intel CPUs.
In addition to Nvidia, it is very interesting to know that Intel is collaborating with AMD for graphics unit. Skulltrail supports both.
Ausus should give a hard look to their present Enthusial MoBo( like ASUS Striker II Formula / ASUS MAXIMUS EXTREME ) designs. I think Intel will come up some scale down version of Skulltrail to embrace individual enthusiast/Gamers.
Skulltrail baby looks good and I will acquire one day

Awesome Beast and Awesome site! I can't believe I've been looking at that other site so long, not to mention any THW names... This site blows that one right into orbit. Kinda like what the Navy did to that spy satellite today.

I usually don't beg, but Please, Please, Please Pick Me! I'm working on a serious antique 7 year old dual xeon 800 with dual boot Vista / Win2k and it is a BSODD (blue screen of death dog) when I'm running Vista, so I could really use a new Beast. No chance of getting a new one either with 3 kids to feed and less than 1K in checking. I'm so broke I had to get Vista for free from college and I'm still on dialup and antenna. Please help a Guru who's down and out on his luck.

I'll donate this one to the local Boy's and Girls Club if I win, and post every pro and con about the Skulltrail Beast.

The system sure looks nice but I am concerned about heat. I am not familiar with that case but with a beast like this I would be putting it in something like the Antec 900 which has 4 fans stock and can add 2 more.

But I sure would like to win it to have these kind of problems to worry about.

I totally see your point, but here's a different spin on it that you guys might not have considerd.

Let me preface by saying that I don't believe we have any petty, jealous losers here. With that being said if a newcomer wins and dips, never to be heard from again it would eliminate the possibility of dissension among regular users that could occur(albeit unlikely)if a regular user won and instantly became "big man on campus"... just a thought.

I'll throw another twist on this recover and thanks for your insight as well.  We think there's a lot of value to a new user that shows solid contributions to the community here, the comments in the forums, news comments, the HH Folding Team, etc.  Wouldn't it also be good to keep a new community member that contributes to this place?  That said, we value our long time regulars and veterans here very much and we'll continue to run contests and gaming tourneys to involve our long-time buds too.

I really like to get involved in other communities than what I already know and it is always nice to find some new people. Sometimes though, things can get a bit busy and too many forums and websites make it impossible to be active everywhere. Good think I am not really involved in many forums right now only about 3-4. This forum and website is very nice.

I have to admit I'm liking the forum a lot. It's not as lively as the other forums I visit.

BTW...Working on converting that guide I was talking about recover. I'm porting it to HTML and making a very simple graphical layout for it. Once I change it from forum based format to HTML, is it cool if I PM you a sample to see if you think it's worth it? I'll also post it up if others want to give it a quick read, it's not even near completion, but basically got past the introductory segments about explanations based on needs, chipset/socket/processor differences. Next, is selection ^.^...

Post counts should mean nothing imo, I'm even saying that when I tend to post quite a lot, not sure how they are doing it. But it's all about the quality of the posts that should be the factor imo. It could go many ways though, but doesn't matter really. If I end up wining, I'll do so ecstatically, if not, grats to the winner ^_^. But yea, the contest info was a bit vague, but not sure how it will end up going. I would of expected it to last longer than just from the 19th to 29th...though...I didn't even notice it till yesterday. Been visiting for quite a long time among a list of 15 hardware sites I visit to satisfy my need for compter related knowledge ^.^. Glad I caught it though, cause this is a once in a lifetime chance! =D 

recoveringknowitall 6 years ago

When the contest 1st came about I thought that randomly chosing a winner was fair enough, but had an idea of my own that I think is actually great considering the magnitude of the prize.

Have users write a short essay(maybe 500 words or so)explaing both why they think they should win and what they would do with the rig if they won.

If you think this is a great idea too, say so and maybe... just maybe the admins might take notice. If they stick with their original plan though I'll totally understand because the contest is already in motion and changing the format now might come off as kinda sketchy if you know what I mean. Still I think my idea has merit and could possibly be implemented in a future contest because after all... forums are all about communicating by writting.

 

Kamrooz 6 years ago

Covert: That is true, but hopefully they'll be able to pick someone with good character.

Recover: That could work well, up to them though considering they already started the contest. I thought it would of been better to have the contest run for a longer duration compared to this 10 days contest it seems, to weed out those who really don't understand how amazing it is of HotHardware to give away such an amazing rig. Very generous of them, heck...I wouldn't mind if it was 6 months long =P...

I'd agree that something along a short essay might be ideal for contests like this.  Not that the essay would win the overall contest but writing an essay and it being on the subject would be idea for an entry point to the contests.

I sometimes feel very frustrated,deprived & worthless for not being an US resident.All the big competitions/prizes are always reserved for US only & here they are the richest country in the world where most of the people can afford buying these high-end PC parts.Please have a look on the other countries too where buying high-end PC parts are next to impossible.Only US & Canada residents have the priviledge to buy them affordably.Wish if anyday sponsors or contest organizers will organize a big worldwide contest like this but i'm not seeing any ray of hope for that.Untill then, i'll have to stay satisfied by only seeing the pictures of these PC parts in the reviews.Thanks for understanding sir.
methious 6 years ago

I think a lot of what you addressed rings true, from a marketing stand point though it makes sense that they market the contests toward the largest richest market.  You don't set up your Lemonade stand on an untraveled road.  

As far as most people affording high end parts like these your fooling yourself, I've been in the business of computers for 25 years and had my hands on a system like that once in passing at a trade show.  Noone I know has the money for a machine like that and I do business with some pretty flush people.  Most of us live pay check to pay check just like the rest of the world.  If we were to own such a system we'd either have to drive it to work or live in it to be able to afford it.  

It depends on the area of the division donating the prize as to who is eligable.  I do see more international contests popping up, but I also see contests were excluded from.  In the end it's a contest and I'm grateful for the chance to participate though the chances are slim of winning.  Having been the winner of a prize from another contest recently should take the sting off a little, after all I've never been that fortunate, and most of these guys haven't eighther.

I know Davo it's next to impossible for you to ship such high-end parts overseas.You may have done that if sponsoring companies would help you in shipping.No worries, don't mind please.I'm actually quite frustrated seeing only US/Canada based contests now-a-days & i'm only referring to the sponsors who always pay attention to the richer people.Anyways,best of luck to all who are eligible to participate.

And " Methious " , you are saying this because you can take part in these contests.Place yourself in my place & i'm seeing you saying the same thing as mine.And winning one contest doesn't mean that i wouldn't want to win any other contest in my life again.You were totally wrong there.Sorry.
methious 6 years ago

 No actually there are a lot of contests we can't enter because we live here, for the same reasons.  International shipping and such.  Never once have I complained about it, and never will. I just figure their nice enough to sponser a contest in their own region and that's nice for those eligable.  I figure looking any ones gift horse in the mouth is bad Karma.

That tempature is definatly quiet warm.  At that temp it should be near throttling the CPU.  Surely this moster of a system under load will probably get into the mid 60's and low 70's quiet easily though.

nelsoncp21 6 years ago

This site has nowhere near the large base of alot of other forums which is why i like it. Alot of other places you post something and get 10 responses saying the same exact thing and alot of argueing and ignorant people. A smaller community like here, you see the same people on everyday usually and get to know people better and it's much friendlier. Not to mention alot easier to keep track of all the new posts. Alot of posts on larger sites go unanswered for the fact that who hasd the time really to go through 200 new posts a day. For instance, AVS forum. I love it there but I only check on 1 to 2 sections daily for new posts because frankly I can't keep up with them all. Still we have slow times here where there's not awhole lot going on and other times it's hoppin.

By design. I'm really glad to see the community bustling with activity. It was getting a bit slow around here... I just hope that March 1st doesn't mark the start of a decline.

I'm shocked my how well the contest is increasing membership.  But I can't blame them, who wouldn't explode with happiness the moment they realized they won the Skulltrail system? It was quite innactive in the months before this.  But I agree, we shall see how many are here to stay in March.:p

Time to get back to worshipping my HH case badges for hope of winning...:p

Got 1 HH badge on my desktop, 1 on my lappy and 1 reserved for the octopwner!!! ;)

While winning would be amazing, I'll frequent this site for years to come regardless and congratulate the winner wholeheartedly.

BTW: Monthly contests would be wonderful if you can swing it.

Ah, just imagine the feeling that you would have when you wake up in the morning and you check your email and you see something that you have not seen yet. You open up the email, and it says that you got a PM at HotHardware.com. So you come here log on, and read the email and it says You have Won. WOW that would be an extremely good feeling! :) Can't wait to see who will win. Good luck Kamrooz and all the others. And Kamrooz, you have a good shot at the contests since you were active the whole time, so you probobly have a better luck winning that I am.

Kamrooz 6 years ago

Peti: Thanks man =P.....The reason I started actually started posting was indeed because of the contest, but I've been a long time visitor of hot harware, I just visit so many sites that I don't register for all the sites I visit. But definitely found a nice home here =P...I've pretty much dropped TH...tired of that forum, and have become less active at the others...and plan to keep it that way ^_^.

But in regards to the contest...I'm under the impression that those who are active and genuinely contributing to the community are selected as a choice for the contest, than out of those choices someone is randomly selected...So it can go to anyone ^_^...I actually prefer it that way. Very fair =P...Although it does lower my chances >_<...rofl. but good luck to everyone! =D. Whoever wins, make sure you game it up for all of us =D.

But considering I try to make as much money as I can at home building/fixing rigs, and via webdesign....It makes it easier to post often considering after 5-20 minutes of work, I just give a quick refresh to see if there are any new posts up ^_^. It's a task to make sure I don't post in the old 2 months or so old threads...They are right at the very top =P...and with the forums I normally visit, the entire first pages are all normally fresh replies...lol. A welcomed change of pace though...I know more people here now than I did at tomshardware, where I spent a quite a bit of time along with other forums I visit.

Well not really, your video card would be a bottleneck, but for him he has a 8800GTS G92, and he is only getting around 7000 with his Pentium D. If he would upgrade to the Core 2 Extreme processors he would be getting around 14000.

Murph 6 years ago

 Wow, people are pretty excited at the prospect of winning this system, opened my email upon awakening this afternoon and all responses to the thread pretty much for a couple pages,must admit I am just a little bit.

Especially since my system is a hardware generation or two behind the curve, been on disability for 6-7 years now, got into comps about that time, first was a dx486, with a whopping 16mb ram and a monster 800mb hd and Windows 3.11. Essentially bypassed the 95, 98 and ME OS's, bought a prebuilt amd 2000+ XP rig when got the disability arrears, various components starting failing just after the warranty expired.

Since the windfall had long been consumed by past due bills, child support and all, could not afford to take it in so bit the bullet and embarked on repairing, replacing, upgrading myself. Which has been good thing, would not buy an off the shelf again, plus have been able to help out friends and friends of friends with their comps.Google and forums such as Hothardwares have been a major help along the way, never really posted much in forums, usually find the answer by scanning over prior postings, and help I felt comfortable about offering most usually beat to the proverbial punch haha.

Have always been behind the latest and greatest and now to get on the current wave means a new mb, ram, cpu, all at once..way too much man lol. So the prospect of winning the Beast and being on the bleeding edge for once would be pretty darn nifty indeed.

Been thinking how cool it would to peel off a cpu and one of the gpu's for my younger son who uses his for home recording studio apps and Morrowind and Oblivion gaming...and passing his upgrade a sock 939 4400+, Epox 9NDA3 + and HIS x1950Pro turbo agp to my older he just uses his for mundane tasks and multi-media so would be quite happy considering he is still 2800 Barton, FX5600 haha.

Would have to do the Ramen Noodle diet for several weeks to snag a MB, Memory and a PSU for the younger lads surprise, but well the looks on their faces and the oohs and aahs when they fire things up and see the difference. Well worth it. No offence to Ramen Noodle Lovers, but have had more ramen out of necessity than I care to recall lol.

Uh oh, have not been losing sleep over the prospect of winning, nor even thinking about it all that much, having articulated the full scenario just may tonight though!!!!

Ah well, been collecting reviews/benchmarking links this afternoon to read up on the Skulltrail platform, gonna save em for later incase the now swelling hope and anticipation keeps me awake lol.

Here are some for those here cursed to stalk the dawn this Drawing's Eve, to pass the wee hours with rather than channel surfing through infomecials lol. (Hothardware's top of the list of course)

Good Luck EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pretty decent, got a wireless network to make behave, a custom rig to trouble shoot Yahoo messanger on (he can't talk with his conquests reliably), two sets of customers coming to look at the curent high end offerings.  Sold the e8400 I had stashed for a nice profit, can't find another for a while until they catch up with demand.  

 

Installed tubing coils on my water rig, gotta wrestle 3 more Yate Loons on the rad with the 3 existing, going push pull.  That's after Half Life Orange box updates.  Pretty light day, storms here slow things down, be lucky if I don't have to reschedule the buyers.

 

Got a HP Jornada and two PDA to put up for sale, and thinking about listing an Antec Soho server file casing I have but haven't used.  In the mean time it's almost 7am and I'm on the second pot of coffee.  Probably just need to hook it up IV drip.

 Whoa, congrats rooz.  Now go out and buy Crysis, it'll look totally sick on that skulltrail.

Kamrooz 6 years ago

Thanks so much guys!...

Crisis: The first thing I'm gonna do is pick up that game...Heck..I'm gonna be borrowing games left and right from friends....But Crysis is one I'll have to pick up, I should be able to pick up atleast one game from the stores, I may be in a bad financial situation...But this deserves a celebration =D. omg..I haven't played any games since Half life 2 and Doom 3...My head is racing with so many titles...This is really gonna hurt working...LOL..But I need this so much! =D...THANKS GUYS!...I'm so not going to be able to sleep....hahah.

Now I think it's time for you to go outside.....haha j/k j/k

congrats buddy! Be sure to toss some pics up on here when she arrives

Davo, Marco -- I almost think this should make the news page....it WAS after all quite a giveaway. You guys rock!

OH!! I almost forgot, the flash drive I got from the last giveaway seems to be "malfunctioning" -- is there any kind of warranty or anything on it? It basically says its in read-only mode but I seem to see no switches/levers/buttons/etc...that would cause it to be in such a state? (Sorry for going off-topic)

Gentlemen,

We ARE watching this area of the forum for reference in the April contest and you're ALL slacking Hmm

Most Active - LAME! :)

coolzonestefan 6 years ago

I will make sure to be more active if you demand it! 

vicaphit 6 years ago

Are winners declared based on activity? or is there a list of people who qualify, and of that list everyone is equal?  (except for RSS feed users of course)

Pam Heinze 6 years ago

 Mmmm, swell looking case. Never had Radeon in my house, always went with nVidia, since Linux could usually handle that okay from what I read.  Until I bought a 9600GT.  But my gaming rigs have always had Windows XP.  So I would definitely need to replay several games or perhaps buy new ones for this computer.  And do some BOINC.  Yes, I would have fun with this and tell you all about it, but I am sure there are others more deserving and whose electric bills aren't as high as mine.  So I'd take it, but I don't really need it, is what I'm saying.  I guess I'd worry that it might burn out the outlet I'd probably plug it into, since there's alread a quad core there.  But there is an empty spot on the kvm for it.  

Ardy22 6 years ago

ice_73 6 years ago

 well i think he could of stopped by anyway even if a mmo sucked him in! he went on other forums and visted other wites he did alot of other thing. he could of at least visited us.

ohhh and amd, a mmo is a massively multiplayer online game (like world of warcraft)

ice_73 6 years ago

 yeah on the helicopter thread but not to jump on ajay but i find no one remains quite as active when they win... perhaps i wouldnt be either if i didnt have tech problems...

ohh well. these contests are great beacuse every one is posting more, even the regulars! 

entermymatrix03 6 years ago

Ice you have been a member and active poster for some time so if you disappeared for a minute after winning no one would say anything to you. Kam's problem is he came on, post-whored it up (j/k), won and no one has heard from him since.

Also, AMD- you can edit your post and merge the two. : ) no worries...just don't let it happen in the future ok? (again, j/k man)

Hi All

Maybe the rules can be changed for future contest where the Winner has to be a Member for a predetermined time. This way someone can't just show up, live on their computer, Win & then disappear.

nelsoncp21 6 years ago

How would you enforce that?

Crisis Causer 6 years ago

Well, you couldn't enforce whether or not they would leave, but you could enforce you had to be a member for X amount of years.  I think 5 years minimum sounds reasonable. =P

But seriously, since it brings in new members it wouldn't be right to exclude them.  If some people are good members for the period of the contest, then hey, why not?

  I wished I could tell you an easy way.I had an aneurism in my brain possibly caused by my smoking and my high blood pressure which came close to killing me, had 2 strokes  a heart attack and 2 brain surgeries one to remove the aneurism and one to remove a tennis ball size blood clot.All this has left me with changes such as chronic pain in my head,nervousness,seizures cognitive thinking problems and a host of other problems.Then on top of this I have advanced COPD very little lung capacity and as ironic, stupid and suicidle I havent been able to stop smoking!!I have sometimes such a physical and mental nervousness to me I feel lke I have to have a cigarette in my hand knowing that Im killing myself and the thing is brain surgery or not Im not stupid I want to quit!!So its not easy to stop but do it before you get like me!!!
