[Ended] *Limited Edition* NVIDIA SLI Case Giveaway
5 Attachment(s)

If you've been here a long long time (~12 years), you may remember the Limited Edition NVIDIA Case giveaway (https://www.overclock.net/forum/3-ov...r-contest.html). The giveaway was hosted by Overclock.net administration itself, and was an "endurance" contest. To be eligible to win, you had to post in the forum every day for a month, with some leniency on missing a day or 2.

"In this installment, we have chosen to give away a nVidia themed case that was commissioned by nVidia and created by Chenbro. This case was on display for nVidia's 2005 SLI expo. Only 30 of them were ever created. "

Well, to my surprise, I had won. I was 14 at the time and it was the coolest thing I had ever won in my life. Well fast forward 12 years, I'm all grown up, and as of a month ago, I was still using this case. However, I've decided that I'd like to downsize to a small case. I've sold all/most of the parts I had in the case in preparation for this giveaway.

I did not feel comfortable trying to sell the case and I didn't want to let it sit around. So I figure, what better way than to do a giveaway back to the community I got it from, in a similar fashion as I had won. I'm sure someone can put it to good use.

1. To be entered to win, you must post in this thread once a day for the next week (October 1st - 8th)
2. A 1 day grace period will be given, if you are late to start, or miss a day during the week, you will still be eligible
3. Posts will be tallied, checked, etc and the list who are eligible will be entered into randomized.com, and one will be selected
4. Only users within the US48 will be eligible (Sorry everyone else :(, shipping would get super expensive)

I will pay to ship the case to anywhere in the US48 (if anyone has suggestions/help on how to ship a case, please comment, or PM me)

The case has some small scratches, missing a front USB port (still one remaining), and I lost the duct for the side fan. Other than that, it's in great shape. I've tried to take care of it through the years. I've added 3 x Green LED Fans, these will be included with the case. In addition, I will include the standoff clips, etc that came with it.

Good Luck!

Winner: Congratulations XAslanX!
I will be contacting you to get some information, thank you for participating!

Thank every one for participating in the giveaway!

I vaguely remember this, I was a wee-lad at the time too. I won a Christmas contest later that year and was really hyped.

I'm not in because I have enough empty cases sitting around doing nothing, but cool to see it still alive and well :)

I added rule #4 to clarify on eligibility. As I will be shipping this to the winner and paying for shipping myself, I'm going to limit to people who live in the US, lower 48 states.

It would get very expensive to ship it outside of the US otherwise, I apologize if that may exclude some of you who have already entered, it was a bit hidden in the initial post, but should now be more visible.
