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!

Un-REAL - but when is Western Digital coming out with their next latest and greatest HDD? Ultrafast 150 GB HDDs are so 2007!

Use serial attached SCSI if you want faster, personally I'd rather wait for SSD's to come down in price.

Wow, what a great prize, would be fantastic to win, being on a fixed disabilty income am always a hardware generation or two behind the curve and usually around the middle tier. This puppy should be able to handle things for sometime to come.

Though don't know if my weakened constitution could handle the shock of actually winning this thing. Though hopefully would only render me "Not quite dead yet and getting better"

Only wish I posted more to better the chances...but that I don't is a good thing, get addled easily these days and would seem like I were typing in tongues.

Thanks for sponsering such a great contest.

Very best of Luck to all who enter, hopefully cheaters can be screened out.

=D Thanks so much man! I'm so ecstatic right now...I know I won't be able to sleep =P. I'm pretty much gonna have it folding constantly for hothardware once I get the beauty in my hands...When I'm not gaming/working that is Wink...Heck, what am I talking about...it has 8 cores..I can just set cpu affinities =P. I was scavenging through a box filled with old wires and came across a 24 to 20 pin adapter right now! =P. But I'm still planning to give the PSU away if someone needs the complete rig..But if not I might not need that 20 pin psu if someone wants the psu I currently have in this rig.. I could just use the adapter for my old Dual AMD MP 1800+ rig that's sitting in the closet, it may not be that powerful, but I'll still be able to pull up some wu's every now and then for hothardware ^_^.

I'll definitely write a personal review for you guys once I get a little gaming out of my system =P. I'll run benchmarks and pretty much anything you guys want me to run. ^_^...I've always wanted to see the difference between memory timings and dividers in real world scenarios and not synthetic benchmarks..now that I have a computer that can actually game and edit/render...I'll write a review regarding that as well =D. God I can't wait! ^_^....now I just need to be patient ^.^..

OK, Dave and I have hammered out almost all of the details regarding our next sweepstakes.  We're just waiting on two small details and we'll outline the system's specifications.  We will say it will be powered be a Core 2 Duo E6750, riding along on a killer nForce 680i mobo wiht a couple of gigs of RAM and an 8800 GTS.  The PSU and CPU cooler will also be top notch...stay tuned...
