News Posted: Tue, Sep 2 2008 9:59 PM

Last month, we announced
an exciting sweepstakes in which we planned to give away a full Intel Core 2 Quad 9650-powered system, complete with 2GB of Kingston DDR3 RAM, a pair of  ATI Radeon HD 4870
graphics cards and a  Western Digital 1TB Black Edition hard drive.  The
response we received after the announcement was fantastic with hundreds of new
members joining our community, posting thousands of comments throughout the
forum and news. A big thank you to our
friends at Intel, AMD, Kingston, WD, and Thermaltake for all they have done with this contest.  Well, the dust has settled and we’ve picked a winner.

Are
you ready for it?  Drumroll please...And the Winner Is...

bob_on_the_cob

Congrats!  You've just scored
yourself a killer rig! 


Stay tuned for the next contest announcement - it won't be long!  And if you haven't signed up for our Intel Take Makeover contest, get to it!

Thanks,
Team HotHardware

Dude, way to go! Enjoy the rig. I guess this means my wife can get off the bike.

 

Just as well, she was getting pretty tired.

 

Again, congrats.

I have a favor to ask of you, Bob. When you get your new rig will you run HD Tune on it for me? I would be very interested to see how the WD Black Edition hard drive in your new rig compares to the WD GreenPower drive in my new rig!

I just wanted to say thanks to you guy at HH. Dave, Marco you have been awesome. Everyone here at HH is great. I have never seen a group of people that are so cool. Never a forum that isn't half flaming. I am proud to be a part of this community and I can't wait for the next 5 years at HH. I just wish I could give back half as much as you guys have given me. I can't wait to get this crazy rig! I'll post some numbers for you guys and I'll be folding like crazy! I hope everyone that has come around the last month or so sticks around because I'm sure Dave and Marco have some more hot hardware up there sleeves.

I'm getting really excited now. Marco said he is sending it out monday or tuesday should all go well. I'm moving the core2duo into my girls rig and selling my current rig to a coworker. With the cash I'm getting 2 more 22 inch monitors. It's the rig of my dreams! I have been a dual monitor fan for years and I'm not overly happy with the crossfire bugs I've read about so I'll use the second card to run the side monitors instead! I'm going to move my watercooling over to the new rig and from the reviews I've read the mobo should be able to take me close to 4GHz!
