[$4,000 in Prizes!] What hardware do YOU want for the Holidays?

post #1 of 1151
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys!

This is your chance to help us create an OC.net holiday buying guide and to potentially win some of that amazing computer and tech hardware and video games on your list!

 

How it works

 

1) Post in this thread the gear that you would LOVE to get over the holidays. If you like, please let us know why those specific items!

 

2) We will randomly pick some members from the submissions and buy them some of their wanted items! A minimum of $4,000 will be spent on these random prizes. Winners will be chosen on December 1st!

 

The categories this year

 

  • Computer Hardware and Gear (This is the place for  computer/Overclocking/cooling gear)
  • Things Overclockers (or tech enthusiasts in general) Would Love (i.e. not computer hardware / overclocking gear - but still cool tech stuff that any geek would love!)
  • Gaming (consoles, games etc)

 

Feel free to provide multiple items for each category! There is no limit on the amount of items you list. We simply care that these are the things you truly would love to receive over the Holiday Season. Oh, and don't just stick to one pricepoint! We want your wishlist to ideally include things would love at all price levels! Just because you list a cheap item - does not mean that it will be the prize you receive. We are usually nice enough to buy one of your more expensive things for you :) So don't worry about including things that don't cost a lot!

 

Sample submission (please stick to a similar template)

 

Computer Hardware

Product Name 1 - Reason I want it

Product Name 2 - Reason I want it

 

Things Overclockers Would Love

Product Name 3 - Reason I want it

Product Name 4 - Reason I want it

 

Gaming

Product Name 5 - Reason I want it

Product Name 6 - Reason I want it

Product Name 7 - Reason I want it

Product Name 8 - Reason I want it

 

 

Rules

To qualify, you must be a current active member, as of the time of this post, with 100 or more posts. 

 

Why so many posts for this one? Because most our other contests have a much lower limit :)

 

Good luck and thanks!

PowerColor R9 490 - unlockable to 490X (possibly XFX brand too) Amazing GPU for the money, especially with unlockability.

Things Overclockers Would Love
Google Nexus 7 - Great talet, performs even better with the latest cyanogen mod, but again great performance for the price.

Gaming
Assassin's creed IV Black Flag - awesome game about assassins and now Pirates, YARRR!!!!

A 4960x because you just cant argue with 6c/12t .. Simply boss ( do people still use that word? )
Another Asus GTX 680 4gb for SLI, Sadly you cannot find them anywhere but ebay anymore, and only sometimes, for outrageous prices.. ahhh, One can dream right?? lol

Things Overclockers Would Love
More aftermarket GPU cooling solutions .. IMO there just isnt as many options for cooling your gpu, as cpu solutions available.
More companies adopting right angle 24pin connections, maybe even start doing right angle 8 pin * GASP did he just say that?? *
If companies are going to take the time to put a 2 digit readout for post codes, Why dont they ALL show temp while in windows, Only my MSI Mpower, and Biostar Tpower, And EVGA Z77 FTW ( IIRC ) did.. Come on Asus, I get tired of seeing AO All the dang time.. ..


Gaming
A PS4 would be pretty sweet, along with a sweet driving game or two to go along with it smile.gif



Another fantastic giveaway, Thanks for just being awesome Admin thumb.gif

Good luck to all cheers.gif

Computer Hardware

Sapphire 7950 - Really kicking myself for not grabbing another one when they were hovering around 200$

Thinking about going intel so an i7 4770 and an Asus Sabretooth mobo.


Things Overclockers Would Love

R9 290/290x, Titan, 780 Ti Who doesn't want a new top of the line GPU?

Kepler Dynamics AIO Gpu cooler bracket, for those of us not quite ready to go custom loop, apparently pairs really well with a 290x wink.gif

Gaming

PS4 / Xbone come to mind

BF4 or Ghosts depending on your franchise of choice.

Steam Gift card, as cheesy and easy out as it would any PC gamer would be stoked.

ASUS Mars 760-One(Or is it two??) awesome piece of tech, surprising that it actually beats a titan. Would be awesome to see how it goes, it would make my Christmas

Things Overclockers Would Love

ModRight Super Large Anti-Static Mod-Mat-An Overclockers/Benchers best friend, great for putting components on, doing anything electrically related, even has lots of diagrams and scale references. Can be used for a variety of things other then overclocking.

Gaming
Assassins Creed:Black Flag for PC - Awesome looking game, and would love to experience it.


I think a lot of people will love you for your/OCN's generosity.

A 3770k would be nice so I could have PCIe 3.0 and to have better performance while streaming.
An R9 290 would also be nice so I could go back to maxing out games again biggrin.gif
BenQ XL2420TE-Would be cool to go above 60fps for once in my life biggrin.gif
Dell Ultrasharp UP2414Q I could dream, right?

Things Overclockers Would love
Onkyo HT-S5600 7.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver/Speaker Package I like good sound.
Surface 2 RT. Would be very useful for school.
Nokia Lumia 1520. My current phone is starting to show its age
Pioneer FH-X700BT My 94 Camry needs a new radio.

Gaming
Razer Orbweaver-It would be useful having all of those macros and it would be a lot more comfortable playing games for longer sessions.
Batman Arkham Origins- Fun Series
Battlefield 4- I've always had fun with the Battlefield Series

Computer Hardware:
a new Mobo/CPU/RAM/HDD/PSU and maybe GPU to Xfire my 7870XT with to stay in the modern age for little, an upgrade desperately needed.
CPU 4960x
Mobo- a decent 2011 board with 2-way SLI/Xfire potential
Ram at least 16gb
4tb hard drive
750w PSU
R9 280X
LG 22-32" 1080p IPS 5ms monitor

Things Overclockers would love: a desk to work on, one of those fancy floating heat sinks that are crazy good. thumb.gif A watercooled rig to overclock with! biggrin.gif

Gamin
Xbox one with the starting release lineup, an extra controller and a year sub for live would be the setup
I'd only really want the xbox one so I can play with some of my friends who will be getting it but I'd rather have the computer rig.



Thank you OCN for another giveaway to get my hopes up for this website is amazing and very gracious! If I were to ever win this the computer hardware and could get a working setup with the items above, that would be mind blowing for me, that being said if I were to win just One of the items ( like getting only the CPU) I'm not sure I could get the $ to get the other components needed to run it, I'd need it as "combo" If not it may be better to go to someone else that can use it, I wouldn't want to have an epic CPU just sitting around that I or no one else could use because I didn;t have a mobo/ram to go with it some of the other items not so much though like HD or monitor, I've grown a big fancy to overclocking since I've joined this website and would eventually like to try watercooling in the future If I could ever get a new computer but things never seem to roll that way, none the less maybe one day I'll have a build log on here! thumb.gif


Thanks again OCN for the chance like this! wubsmiley.gif
