It's that time again!  Time to give away another awesome gaming system, this time built by the man himself, Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta.  If you're never seen the results of Marco's system configuration and cabling skills, you simply have not lived.  This time around, we're going to make it really easy on you.  As you know, Marco and I spend a little time each week with our buddy Iyaz, discussing a few highlight stories from the week in Tech and responding to reader questions.  Right now we're calling it the "HotHardware Weekly Webcast."   We know, we know; boring, unimaginative and stale isn't it?   We need help (in so many ways, you have no idea) and that's where you come in... 

We'd like YOUR imaginative, creative and cool ideas on what to name our weekly webcast show.  So here are the rules of engagement in the contest.  Follow these steps to a tee (it's simple, honest) and you could win a custom BigWop-built, AMD-infused killer gaming system!
  • Send your webcast name ideas to: podcast@hothardware.com (you can send as many as you like!).
  • Become a fan of HotHardware’s official Facebook fan page (if you're not already).
  • Subscribe to HotHardware's Feedblitz once-daily news alerts (if you're not already).
  • Make sure you are regularly VISIBLE in HotHardware's news and forum community discussions.
  • Post your name ideas on either (or both) this announcement thread or HotHardware's Facebook page.
  • That's it, done!
  • (Contest is for US residents only, sorry!)
Here's a complete breakdown of the grand prize, courtesy of HotHardware.com and our valuable manufacturer sponsors!
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition
  • Cooler: Xigmatek Dark Knight
  • Motherboard: Asus CrossHair IV Formula
  • Graphics: Asus EAH6870
  • RAM: 4GB OCZ DDR-1333
  • SSD: WD Silicon Edge Blue 64GB
  • HD: WD Caviar Black 2TB
  • PSU: OCZ 850W Z-Series
  • Optical: Asus DVD+/-RW
  • Audio: Psyko 5.1 PC Gaming Headset

Thanks to our contest sponsors!
 
 

The contest will run through November 14th, at which point we'll select the winner. That's not a lot of time, so be sure to enter quickly!

This is a great chance for to you to win a custom, powerful new system. Now go get creative and good luck!

Even though the contest is in the US, Facebook is involved. Although I live in Canada, I would pass on this one as well if I had the option to participate.

Kyouya, Facebook is not a firm requirement. Just one of the items to get noticed.

You should name it the "using facebook to comment is a real pain in the butt podcast."

But seriously my entry is calling it the "HotHardCast."

Yes, I know I can't possibly win.

TTorrence:

This is a search for a good name for the podcast. Forum participation helps, but ultimately, if your 'entry-name' is what they choose, then you win. There's no favorites here, and no hidden agenda either. Your entry "HotHardCast" seems good to me.

There is also no compare when it comes to great contests that never seem to end, HotHardware.com wins hands down, every time.

Again, let me say good luck to all of you out there.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I included my name and the ideas but not the address, I did sent them an additional email with the address. I hope they get it and consider my entry.

acarzt: If we're allowed to post our entries then here are mine:

BurnZone: Live from inside the GPU during a burn session.
The Branding Ranch
Just some guys talking Hardware
The Fortress of Melted Solitude
HotHardware's Weekly Sauna
HotHardware's Weekly Meltdown
Live from the Center of the Earth.
A title that does not contain fire-related puns.
The HotHardware Tub
The LN2 Pot: staying -190 degrees Celsius cool
Underneath the Fans
HotHardware's Weekly Reservoir
The Overclockers
Beyond The Limit

Most of these have to do with heat, cool, extreme cool and overclocking. I just hope I don't get disqualified for this.
