Don't know... I know it's not participated the most. I think they just picked who they wanted to pick.

Pretty lucky guy! Now he'll have two i7 systems.

i know what you mean clixxer. I know based off the rules for the contest that you and johnny 3d and my self and a few others diligently stayed active on like almost every article available and in the forums. So it has to be random because again nothing against eunoia im happy for him but i dont recall really seeing his name come up in almost any of the articles at all. So if its meant to be random thats fine he won fair and square but the actual rules done mention its random but it tells us to be active. soooo.... whatever enjoy it eunioa. i would recommend looking to joining the folding team for HH if you havent already. check out the forums. youll find all the info you need on folding

His current system is in his signature, which is an i7 system. So... since he just won an i7 system, that will mean he now has two of them. I have no idea where he got his first one. I assume he bought it.

Wow, thats...Well...

I guess hes goona be able to enjoy two awesome rigs then...

I wish that some people who actually actively interact with the community would have won, but hey, I guess that they do it randomly.  That has its ups and downs, but looks like he won fair and square.  Anyway, in the future I hope to see somebody win that doesn't already have a beast of a rig so that they can enjoy winning something too.  I've seen a few individuals on here that have an even more out dated PC than myself.

I assumed the HH guys would actually take time out to sift through the applicants and pick someone that's more active in discussions and stuff, but hey, you can't really complain I guess...

 

Congrats anyway again eunoia!  Use this PC well! Maybe you could cherry pick some of the other parts from your already cool rig, and mix them  with this one?  Or maybe you would want to have 2 separate gaming rigs, whichever way would be amazing :)

You are a lucky guy Eunoia ! Thank you HotHardwares to put an end to this torture ! Okay now i can go cry in a shrimp position under my bed.

Idk about the giveaway rules an the method used to pick a winner and i dont care. This is a gift not a reward. Idk if they picked a friend or not. If yes; we can really blame us ? I can't ! If they knew a friend who really need it for good uses. I can blame this ? Why this guy is less right than others ? Why is more right than others ? They are something called friendship and where they are friendship; these things happens and i'm happy with it.

Nices Giveaways ! I hate you for the torture ! Thank you for making my dream for a month ! And continue to made more GiveAway and less advertizing.

I hope we can get full benchmarks soon as possible because i really need to change my build in shorth to medium term.

I think the answer to your question is that it may or may not have been a mostly random participation contest that happened on purpose.

It wasn't a random drawing, dude.  This whole thing was clearly an accidental giveaway that happened on purpose.

Quite frankly I hate people for their friendship too.  Who do they think they are anyway?  Friends?  But I'm sure that's not what this giveaway was about.

Folks, first, Eunoia has been a very active member here for a while now, through multiple contests. That's one thing you'll find out. If you persevere, you can actually win something here. Marco is going to post how we generally pick a winner. It's not an exact science but it is based on visibility and then a random drawing after that.

People can be spiteful, it's fine. I think people join in the month they see a giveaway, post a lot, and expect to win. If you stick around you might win something. I was incredibly thankful for the GTX 560 I won in February of 2012 and I am still using it today. 

 

Stick around and you may see a nice system come your way. Post because you want to, not because you want to win. There's a difference.
