    SWEEEET!! I actually won something?! I never win anything! That 7750BE will be replacing my 5KBE in my dedicated cruncher! I might have to buy a new motherboard and some ram to keep the 5KBE crunching. Thank You! :respect::rockout:

    Friday :D Imma borrow my buddies car to get this done and go to work on Friday and stuff. Mine is going to be taken apart friday for repairs. Hopefully I'll get mine running soon, going to USPS after work without a car is not fun.

    Thanks to all those who participated and congrats to those who won.

    Just out of curiosity, the contest thread said 'Winners will be selected.." does that mean someone or group of people actually hand picked the winners and it was not a random drawing or equivalent?

    Winners were selected by random number generator. After the number was selected, I confirmed that the contest criteria was met. Next contest, members will have to enter(click on a link and enter name/data)to be eligible to win.

    El Fiendo has to be happy with the shipping because he doesn't have to make that cost cutting decision......

    Amazing. I am shocked the RNG was responsible for the winners, I mean you couldn't have hand picked better winners :laugh: Thanks for letting me know.
