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...

deathman:Oh FYI remember you might have to pay taxes on it depending where you live.
I doubt it, but if I had too...I guess I'd have too..lol. Don't know what else to say to that...If this was like a government based lottery it'd make sense, but I doubt it for something like this. But who knows =P..It would suck though >_<...But considering what I'm getting I'd do it in a heart beat...
Good luck to everyone in the upcoming contest ^_^.
Just realized I'll be without almost any internet access from Friday night through Saturday the 15th. I'll be able to check email once a day or so, but no forums. Ack, I hope this doesn't hurt my chances on this next contest.

ROFL..I know. He's way up there..
Does he even post anymore?...
I haven't seen him on in months. He landed a new job and hasn't been on nearly as much. He still use to pop in every once in awhile. It's a shame though cause he really knows his stuff especially when it comes to silent cooling and psu's. He didn't get that post count by spamming either. He has just been around forever and knows alot. I think he works for some company in the UK writing articles on silent pc's or something like that now.
I think I could handle paying taxes on that if i won it:)

I hear that -- he helped me through 2 PSU purchases.....
I rather see a video review so we can check out the build as it happens ! :)
That would be sweet
that contest had just ended but there is anew one for the month of march
I wonder how the Skulltrail platform really works/benches...
I'm sure he will keep us posted about this!
New sweepstakes details here:
We ARE watching this area of the forum for reference in the April contest and you're ALL slacking

I will make sure to be more active if you demand it!
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)
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.
This would look wonderful on my desk!
I'm mosty participating in this contest because of that case because it is unique,hand-painted and very expensive so I could never afford it if I were to buy it
I would really like to check out that 3870X2 and do some benchmarks wit it to see ho well it performs
we all want that,trust me!
Tbolo:I would really like to check out that 3870X2 and do some benchmarks wit it to see ho well it performs
id rather play games :-)
Of course, that's after you torture it though.
Mhmm. Give it some benchies, get hyped, and then run Crysis right on through it.
I guess this thread will never die,won't it?
Wow that would be some massive power to play with, 4 graphic cards each with one gig of memory and with 2 Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9775 cpu's and 8 gig onboard memory nice i could definently take couple of those for multitasking games hehehehe loving the power.
Outstanding contest! Please count me in...this is something desperately needed at our house!
