You're right, we do have equal chances to win. HotHardware is the place for fantastic contests, and many times the winner is somebody new.

As for respect, that's one of the fringe benefits of this site. People seem to get along most of the time. It's a great place to hang out.

I'm getting the same thing. I just assumed it was to do with the server change ( http://hothardware.com/cs/forums/t/64683.aspx) But maybe I'm wrong.

But um mayo and tylenol? For real? Did it work? Lol

@Manduh

Haha! and this is definitely one of the "Kewler" cases they've had in a giveaway build!

Thermaltake (and NZXT for an honorable mention) definitely make some of the coolest and most stylish cases around!

Everytime I see this case I feel as if it belongs in some sci-fi military bunker.  It looks mean as hell.

Agreed, the odds are much better than playing the lottery and there is a ~lot~ of useable information to be had here.

Am I the only one who's fervently excited to see who won this bad boy "early Christmas present", Giving Thanks Giveaway now that we've entered into the month of December?

Please tell me there's some nail-biting going on behind keyboards in the monitor screen light as the anticipation builds up for you guys too!?

Haha best of luck to everyone once more and another round of thanks to Gigabyte, Thermaltake, AMD for sponsoring and most importantly HotHardware for putting it all together!!!

Definitely.  Whenever a contest is ending, my hand catches on fire from hitting F5 on the contest page.

Well, there's still time to leave the F5 key alone ;) This goes until after December 17, so lots of time for people to post and be active on the various topics covered at HH.

P.S. To the new members... your chances of winning would drastically improve if you post on other topics as well, not just here on the contest post! Don't be shy :D
