News Gift [G] Posted: Mon, Jan 31 2011 11:19 PM

It's that time again folks! In conjunction with our friends at OCZ, Intel, WD, Gigabyte, and Xigmatek, we have assembled another rig to give away this month! We're announcing a new sweepstakes where you could win a full Intel Core i7-870-based system, complete with a Radeon HD 6870 graphics card, some super-fast DDR3 RAM, an OCZ SSD, and a speedy Western Digital hard drive. With that kind of power at the heart of this rig, in a windowed case, this machine will definitely be a head turner, and it could be all yours!

As usual, we’ll be giving away this rig away to a randomly selected contributor to our on-line forum, news and reviews discussion systems. The complete break-down of components in the system includes:


Processor: Intel Core i7-870

Graphics: XFX Radeon HD 6870

Case: Xigmatek Utgard

PSU: PC Power and Cooling Silencer 760W

Memory: 4GB OCZ DDR3

Motherboard: Gigabyte P55

Hard Drive: WD Velociraptor 600GB

SSD: OCZ Vertex 2 120GB

Optical Drive: SATA DVD-R / RW

Input: Thermaltake Challenger Pro

To be entered into the sweepstakes, you’ve got to be a registered, active member of our forum and a resident of the United States or Canada (apologies to the rest of the world). If you’re not already a member, you can sign up quickly and easily (and for free), right here.

From this point forward, we’ll be monitoring discussions on the site and will be selecting a winner based on community involvement and contribution. To increase your chances of being a winner, sign up for our HotHardware RSS News Alerts as well, and we'll toss your name into the mix for double credit! In addition, we’re going to be weighting entries based on the quality of contribution, using our comment system’s integrated voting button (those 'Thumbs Up' and 'Thumbs Down' buttons you see in the comments on the news page).  So if the community likes your stuff, so will the contest gods!

The sweepstakes will run through February 28, 2011 and we will announce the winner shortly thereafter.

This is a great opportunity for to you to win a custom, powerful new system. Now go make some new friends in the HotHardware community and get in the running! Good Luck!

Well I would call it the HH-dot-Commune Winter Chillax-a-thon...to raise awareness of the high temperatures of the members during the cold and flu season and to ask the questions, "What the tech is going on, and what the tech do you have to say about it, and where is your wool sweater with the snowflakes on it?"  The best contributor to the siliconversations will have the opportunity to warm his frigid geek feet over the gentle tropical breezes eminating from the back of a OCZ Silencer 750W PSU.

There must be some mighty fine Herb in the 'Gamma Quadrant' FreeJet. Smile

Will there be another build log this time? We enjoyed the last one, but I realize that sometimes things can get a little hectic with an almost new baby in the house.
