    Definitely should be something anyone can do. Shouldn't be limited only to those of us with high end rigs. The gameplay video sounds okay, but I like the idea of a photo or video creation contest kind of like what NCIX tech tips does on youtube. That or just make it a totally random drawing where people put there name into the hat, or have to answer some trivia or something - that way only people who enter will win.

    So if I took a fraps video of me harvesting/plowing/planting my fields in Farmville, it would be acceptable ! ;) jk

    I wonder if anyone would sit through the whole thing anyways ! :D

    great idea btw :rockout:

    I think it's awesome that we get to affect the competition thumbs up thermaltake :rockout:
    I personally would like a competition where "Everyone" no matter hardware setting/entry-enthusiast would be able to compete, in order to reach the broadest audience. Fx. I really loved the powercolor competition, but sadly I ofcourse do not own a desktop at this very moment and wasn't able to join, but still thumbs up for at least bringing alot more people into the competition by going for a low score rather than high score. I think the photography with a twist idea sounds pretty neat, I mean most people have a phone with a camera now a days, or have means to take a picture, perhaps of funky hardware, or anything else really :)

    For the people who wanted a photo contest: What did you have in mind? Like .. photos of nature? Photos of Thermaltake products? .. Photos of Thermaltake products in nature?

    I like the idea, but just wondered if you guys had anything specific in mind.

    or how about photos of anything, but with subliminal Thermaltake advertisements hidden in them ;)

    This has been done before, but just wanted to throw some more ideas into the mix: A mock slogan contest. Contestants would have to come up with a new slogan for Tt. It could be serious, funny, cool.. etc etc...


    edit #1: or a combination of photograpy with a mock slogan caption ! ;)

    edit #2: or a Tt ad depicting a mock new product.


    :)

    Something creative (as others have said before me).
    Doing a benchmarking competition will only have the member with most money to buy the best rig to win as LordJummy rightly pointed out.

    Photography, slogans.. they're all good ideas.

    Perhaps a photography competition of close-ups inside one's pc?

    But that would involve having to go outside the house, and possibly interacting with other people.
    That might scare quite a FEW people on here, remember we are a a computer tech forum, think nerdy of the nerdiest.
    And sunlight, oh my I don't think I could go outside.
    Can we photoshop TT images onto other images and just say we went and and took pictures in the real world?

    That's it Best photoshop image of TT logo/product captioned/ think bubble involving ThermalTake whatever, hell evan an original photo for those who can stand to go outside.

    Best image, maybe with sub-catergories depending on how deep TT willing to dig with the prize pool.

    A long time ago there was a thread called TPU Cribs, where members made videos of how they live and show their computer stuff. Maybe something along those lines, like make a video talking about your computers, and the funniest narrated video wins?

    Of all the ideas put forth, I believe the slogan contest would be most equitable.

    I agree the benchmarking contest would be weighted toward those with money/experience, and to a lesser degree, the photography contest would be the same.

    I'm never gonna win this one.

    Arts = I suck with it
    Benchmarking = probably gonna get a score of 1
    Photography = how the heck can a cellphone cam do the job?

    Right so we have :
    (I'm arguing the devils advocate here)

    Calc challange= could be won in seconds

    Show your TT case mod= yeah we all mod?...even if we do do we all have TT cases

    Photo challange= Do you have a camara, is it SLR, its subjective on the judging

    LOWEST possible score on a benchmark= been done, same guy wins it.

    Highest stable running temperature of a GPU while running a benchmark= dont really know what to say, just I wont enter.

    Gameplay video: does everyone play games, who's the best gamer.

    Combination of photograpy with a mock slogan caption: again with the picture side and subjective judging

    Tt ad depicting a mock new product: subjective judging

    I have no ideas, just pointing out not everyone will be happy, such is life, any competition is worth entering ....just in case.

    How about a mix of them all, make everyone happy, subjective judging with cold hard numbers.

    A scoring system if you will.

    I know the challenge has been picked but had to say.
