    Yea, you got that right!!!!!!!! Out of six I purchased a couple years ago for some new rigs I built, I had to RMA five of them!!! I ended up sending all six back and getting some Corsair units.

    I'm doing 2 6950s on my 600w ocz and it still hasn't exploded yet... Surprisingly. I think they went bankrupt though to rma will be close to impossible now.

    I also might have some old unredeemed humble bundle games I could throw in. My friend has some old ssds he has no use for so iI'll try to see if I can buy them off him

    OK, I am gonna gift this weeks Humble Bundle, for the Challenge. EDIT* I saw on the site that these are all Steam Games and can only be redeemed all at once. So, if true? One big prize!

    Along with a couple of other games in my Library there. Including, but not only, Amnesia: Dark Descent Steam Key.

    I might add more, or save them for a future contest. I have games in my Humble library that are more than this laptop can handle.

    The Bundles can still be parted out, though it takes a little more now: you can gift a game using a gift url, activate-able using email address and linking it to the recipient's Steam.

    I grabbed a bundle too for the giveaway. Also I went through some old Bundles with leftover games to figure out what to throw into the game giveaway.

    Also, Amnesia DD is an awesome game!! Thanks for throwing it in :respect:

    I used the "Gift" button. It sent me a link to all the games, with only one place for a recipients e-mail. I suppose I might be able to receive them myself and possibly part them out. But, if that doesn't work....So, may as well be one big one!! What's the catch?

    Hey Norton, I just replied to your WTB thread, but I'll post here also. Find a PSU, new or used, preferably under $50, but if a little more is needed, it's ok, and I'll buy it and have it shipped to you.

    Pretty outstanding contributions! Thanks mjkmike and sneekypeet, as well as the others that are donating all the various prizes! :respect: :respect: :respect:

    Please do so. I've got a running list so far from the several members that are donating games, and I've love to get as accurate a list as possible.
    Thanks :toast:


    Also, let's get our head in the challenge mode, crunching crunching crunching. According to Norton's link posted earlier, there are 18 teams signed up so far. Hopefully we will all be bringing out A-Game and put up a terrific fight :D
