[Freebies] Second Annual Shion314 OCN Giveaway - Full Rig and more [CLOSED] - Page 4  

post #31 of 301
- hi from Colorado

- I think there are a couple reasons why I would want any of this stuff:

1. I've really got a passion for computers and computer hardware
2. I enjoy games, and I've got an empty case in my room for any parts and etc.
3. I don't own a "rig" necessarily. I have a laptop (No actual GPU, but it get's the job done just fine.)
4. I'm a budding computer scientist, and I could probably find a few more uses for those GPU's than just gaming.
(I've been playing with OpenGL lately, and some of the wargames I've been playing have required some bruteforce tactics on memory.)

- If you want to check out something interesting, why not take a look at the world of CTF security competitions? {CTFtime.org}
I'm currently competing in CMU's picoCTF, a contest aimed at highschoolers, under the team name of CCHS.
Most of these competitions are free and quirky.
They're a really great way to challenge your brain and learn more about all of the areas of CompSci and Information Security.


Edit: Ended a few hours ago!
We placed 61st out of 1900!

This has to be one of the most intricate systems I've seen for a giveaway on here in probably forever. Good timing too.

I'm not much of a story teller like many here but I did have something happen recently (aka this morning) that was a small bit upsetting. Woke up groggy after falling asleep in my computer chair, went to walk out the door and walked into the corner of my tower that is sitting on top of my desk, which then proceeds to fall over the edge. I didn't have the side cover on it and all my cables are zip tied so it pulled all 3 of my monitors over the edge, luckily only one broke as far as I can tell, my gpu snapped off the pci slot, my modem which is on the floor next to my desk got smashed and there is sharp bits of random computer parts all over my carpet. Don't have a decent enough camera to take pictures otherwise I'd post it up on OCN but it made me pretty sad. Not sure how much of the system works and if the other 2 monitors have any issues since I have no rig besides my girlfriend's MBP, so it would be nice to fix up my little monster and hope my hard drives are also fine. Would really hate to lose my work and school files since it was a RAID 0+1 array.

So essentially the reason why I would like this is to get my baby back up and running. Maybe not in such a large case as I'm using an old Dell XPS 730 case that weighs about 75lbs with all the hardware in it, and caused a lot of damage to my stuff when it fell, but I'd still like it to be alive again. If not then I'll have to scrounge up some cash and just buy a laptop.

I'm in New Mexico, USA and I believe my tally is 5 + 12 + 10 for 27.

All your prizes are epic, and i dont mind getting any of it if i win, tho i would prefer the "backup rig" (which beats my main rig), monitor, or case in that order.
- I work as a computer repair tech and like to mess around with disposable/ free parts to see what i can manage, This would help with that.

I'm from northern Virginia.
1 - You are making the contest for OCN members only - IE you cant enter for a person outside OCN
1b - Multiple things that meet the requirement will add as extra chances
1c - On June 1st you will check every persons stats
2 - I dont really have an exciting life full of stories to tell you and I dont have great luck but I just thought i'd enter because I'd like to win and I would do my best to put the won hardware to use for folding (for the cure!)
Excess hardware would be used to amp up my mothers PC and spares would be used to assemble another PC for folding and general use, if the rig is disassembled.

I've been on the folding team for over a year now, but I don't have the kewl gadgets many people have. If I win the rig, you already know it's going into a closet folding on Linux. biggrin.gif The GPUs will be used for gaming at high level from time to time.

A cool story for your enjoyment. My school recently started a computer refurbishment club to help the needy kids in my school (50% of them do not have a computer at home). We accepted any computers that were usable. Many of them came from government controlled places. The first batch of computer we gave out included a bunch of Athlon X2 CPUs and 2GB RAM. The next batch we're working on now have Phenom X3s. Seems like the gov is a big AMD fanboi biggrin.gif Many of the teachers in the school appreciate us doing this because it makes the studying/homework process much much easier.

I am from Falls Church, VA, near the capital of 'Muricuh

I thank you for doing these freebies. Last year's was so awesome (didn't win). Good luck to all participants.

1) Greetings from Alberta, Canada!

2) I've been wanting a rig to do some crazy oc'ing since my 950 on air can only do so much. Truthfully though, I'm more interested in those GTX 680s - I'd imagine they'd be a crazy upgrade from my dual 450s tongue.gif (Would be perfect for my new 2560x1440 monitor too)

3) Testing if I still have the brain capacity to do some simple math (just finished my university exams last week - I swear I could be clinically certified brain dead). As of now, I should have... 6+6+(10+2) = 24 entries. Other than that, I'm a very boring person so my jokes and wisecracks would all be a pretty pointless endeavour anyway.
