It's that time of year again, when our head elf Bosco launches the annual Christmas Contest. The grand prize this year is really something special, as an Intel Core i7 3770K, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690, MSI Z77A-GD65, and 16GB of Corsair Dominator Platinum RAM make up the guts of the beast. There's plenty of other prizes to try and win too, with some of the largest names in the industry donating hardware to the contest. A full list of each product can be seen in the forum post, but the sponsors include: Noctua, DimasTech, Cougar, G.Skill, Phanteks, ROCCAT, Gigabyte, In Win, Deepcool, OCZ, Patriot, Seasonic, Prolimatech, Enermax, LEPA, AZiO, Thermaltake, and Cooler Master.
OCC's Christmas Contest is open worldwide to every member and staff. All you need to do to enter is send an email to [email protected] with the following: forum user name, full system specifications, complete mailing address and phone number, and a paragraph (or less) of what you'd upgrade in your computer and why. An auto-reply email will be sent upon successful entry completion, but please remember to include every detail in your initial email as incorrect ones are deleted.
If you are lucky enough to win the grand prize, Bosco will be calling your phone number listed in the email with the
good great news on December 25. Make sure that number is where you can be reached, like a cell phone or even your grandparents' house, as failure to answer means forfeiture of the grand prize. No one would ever want that, so answer your phone on Christmas Day, even if you don't recognize the number!
Good luck and Happy Holidays from all of us at OCC!
EDIT: Winners for the contest have been announced! Go check the forum thread to see if you're one of the winners, and a special congratulations to WARDOZERX on the grand prize!
