Okay Luke, I made a submission:<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2142672/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2142672" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2142672/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 196px"></a><br><br>
Probably not gonna win either since my i7 is a dog and not stable past 4.5ghz no matter what voltage I give it.<br><br>
I would suggest you edit your original post and make it link to this page: <a href="http://blackholetec.com/main/article/competition-black-hole-mayhem" target="_blank">http://blackholetec.com/main/article/competition-black-hole-mayhem</a> Instead of this page: <a href="http://blackholetec.com/main/article/announcement-black-hole-mayhem" target="_blank">http://blackholetec.com/main/article/announcement-black-hole-mayhem</a> Which looks the same but does NOT have a link to the "competition background". I literally wasted 20 minutes trying to find the background, because it's only linked to from the "competition" page, which I randomly stumbled upon from the forums but could not anywhere else on the site. Why are there two separate pages on the site for the competition that look identical??? This makes absolutely no sense and is confusing for people.<br><br>
Making people sign up for underpopulated forums that they'll never visit again for a competition is a waste of time and stupid. (I'm not interested in small side forums. Only OCN. And if it weren't OCN, I'd surely be somewhere else like [H]ardOCP or something.)<br><br>
Having to use a "competition background" is a pain in the ass, because changing my wallpaper and getting it on my center monitor is a PITA. This trend is NOT friendly to Eyefinity/Surround users. It needs to stop because it makes me not want to bother benching. My rig is not a display for your corporate sponsors.<br><br>
On top of this, having to type things out in notepad isn't necessary either.<br><br>
Other than that, I have no complaints. <img alt="rolleyes.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif"><img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

On the bright side, we have good probability of winning a door prize <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Haha, sorry if I sound like an ass, it just took me like over an hour to do my submission to the contest because of all the mentioned reasons.<br><br>
Thanks for changing the link to the actual submission page! That will make it a lot easier for anyone else in the future.<br><br>
(Damn, finding that wallpaper took forever....)
