    Thanks for offering up that mouse again! :toast:

    Ion has offered to check on a psu for the rig build/giveaway and I'm waiting on some PM's from a couple more members confirming their offers. Anyone else please PM me or post here.

    I'll start a list in the OP so we know what we have to offer

    Let's make this another successful challenge!!! :cool:

    Oh I have no doubt that this will be an uber successful challenge :)

    Besides regular prizes, I'm trying to gather some games for the game giveaway, that is if we decide to have one this time too. I'm assuming we will since they seem to be pretty popular and successful in past challenges.

    Norton, if these a need for specific hardware for a giveaway rig, maybe give it a mention. If I have something needed, I'll gladly give it up. :)

    Like maybe an Antec 650:p. He only has like 10 of them. LOL. Let me know what is needed to finish the rig and I'll come through. I got some Paypal money that needs to "pay it forward".:rockout:

    That is well done manofthem. :toast: Very generous of you to basically have added another price in order to fix that issue.

    Silverstone Argon AR03 cpu cooler
    *available to Team members in the USA- shipping would be too difficult otherwise

    I have a bunch of games to add to this pool. I even grabbed the box art for them. Are you planning on being our host for these?

    That will be up to Norton to decide; I haven't designated myself ;) I suggest letting Norton know what you have to offer up, as that's what I do every time. As the time comes closer, he will let us know what's what. :)

    Also, we have received a donation from sneekypete of a CM Storm Havok mouse with another item to be announced soon! :toast:-:rockout:

    That was mighty awesome of SP to donate for the challenge. Come to think of it, he usually does... what tremendous guy! (Unrelated, but buying from sneekypete is always a pleasure :))

    So for the game giveaway, it all sounds good to me :D I'm happy to throw it up; I hope I can make it fun and interesting. I'm still kicking around some game ideas, but I'm plenty open to suggestions on ideas for games and/or ideas for the main theme of the giveaway. So to whomever that wishes, send me a PM whenever; my PM box is all clear. ;)

    Now I just need to get my 2500k back online cough with Linux cough. Now it will be on 24/7 instead while my 4770k is being used for gaming. I still have my a10-5800k at my brothers producing various amounts of work based on his usage. I randomly decided to install boinc on my laptop, with an I3- 2330m, but had to set it to 65% usage to control heat. Wish I could get my phenom going but after my 4770k purchase computer fund is dry.

    I should be able to push a decent ppd for sure.

    A power supply is it.

    Edit: Actually since my main back up hdd died I would have to try and run my phenom rig on a slow 16gb flash drive.

    Awesome, thanks Pete! :respect:
    My farm is of course ready to go and I shall give it all I've got :toast:

    I'll see if I can rig things such that the rigs dump a particularly big set of work the first day to get us going in the right direction :)
