CyberPower and HH Back To School Blitz SweepstakesTo pay tribute to the back-to-school season (or just party), in conjunction with our good friends at CyberPower. We planned to give away yet another fully loaded, quad-core powered gaming rig! This time around, the winner would score a complete Intel Core i7-950-based system, with a GeForce GTX 460 graphics card pushing the pixels, Asetek Liquid Cooling, and 6GB of RAM!

The response we received after the announcement of the contest and throughout its duration was absolutely awesome with hundreds of new members "liking" our Facebook page. Before we announce the winner, we want to give a big thank you to everyone that made this contest possible and of course to all of our loyal community members—new and old--who participated.

Well, we've had a chance to sift through all of the data and we’ve picked the lucky winner...


She's All Yours, Jeff!

Are you ready for it? Drum roll please! And the Winner Is:

Jeff a.k.a Likeskills!

Congrats brother! You've just scored yourself once heck of a killer rig!

Now everyone, congratulate your pal and prepare for our next exciting give-away! Once we've got the details hammered out, we'll announce the next contest, but we promise it won't be long!

Thanks,
Team HotHardware

Congratulations Man!

Yow! this is a fine prize!

I cannot believe it, I won!!! Thanks so much to the staff of HotHardware.com and Cyberpower PC for this awesome rig!!! I have been jumping around like a lunatic for the last half hour after reading this! This site has the best web community I have found yet, so I thank all the members for making it what it is. In my short time here, all the information I have taken in about the hardware I own (and could only dream of owning) has made my time here very worthwhile, not to mention the two games and PC that I have been rewarded with.

I can't wait to get my hands on some Intel and Nvidia products, as well as crankin out some WU's on this baby!!!

That must have been it,.................LOL!

I just got my brand new facebook profile shut back down. Lordie was that intense!

I got friend requests coming out of left field within the very first minute I was on! 

I didn't even know half of them either! People that I had not thought about for 25 years were sending me "fish" and wanting to go and "farm" with them. (shudders)

When your old girlfriends start contacting you, and your wife finds out, THAT'S when it gets intense!

Super Dave:
THAT'S when it gets intense!

 

I showed all of them to her. Some of them were old flames and she was really curious as to what they looked like. 

FaceBook is just too much input, happening way too fast, that never stops! (and most of it is predicated on BS) I can't stand it.

The HotHardware page was OK, and the CyberPower PC page was too. But I really would rather be here on the web page when I get the latest in Hot Tech News!
