    Here she is in my previous TJ07 case. Should say, it is the standard full cover water block (i.e gpu, Vram & VRM) & not the cosmetically full length XL block.

    Also, I'm collecting together some games for the game giveaway, already have a few. If anyone has anything they'd like to kick in, I'll be happy to throw it into the pot. ;)

    I'm also working on a grand prize for the game giveaway. :D

    Thought a nice PC glamour shot would be nice. Also, get up off your knees! While everyone is spending time folding, I'll be selfishly playing games. I wouldn't be donating this if it weren't for the fact there are loads of you guys out there folding and crunching away for little or no reward other than the hope that global efforts will contribute to a better future. Again, during which time I'll be slashing and shooting aliens, zombies and feral creatures in hours of mindless escapism.

    I'm just giving up some 2nd hand hardware (albeit nice hardware :D) but you guys are trying to do something better for everyone.

    So :respect: to you guys.

    Heck, with that prize I think a week is kind of short. What about doing it from the 10th to the end on the month?

    ha! the 840T is a Zosma (x6 with two cores disabled). I guess I should try with it instead. Wish me luck.

    Hey Norton, I got this little Phenom II X6 system I bought as a crunching rig from a certain someone. Considering I won this killer 3930k system (I only had to buy the case and SSHD), I feel I need to do another pass it on. Here's the crunching rig being given away for this competition.


    Processor: AMD 1045T
    Motherboard: Biostar A880GZ
    Cooling: Xigmatek Gaia SD1283
    Memory: G Skill Red Ripjaws 2*4gig DDR3 1866
    Video Card(s): ASUS HD7770
    Hard Disk(s): WD Cavair RE 160gb
    Case: Corsair 350D
    Power Supply: Rosewill V2 700watt
    Software: Vista 64 bit

    Oh, and if I'm selected to win anything in this competition, do a redraw. I've gotten enough from this great team.

    This is shaping up to be one heck of a challenge. Will have to see if I can get some hardware, software, or PayPal together for this one.

    Wow!!!!!!!!!

    @BarbaricSoul : That is an amazing contribution my friend!

    I am always just amazed at how this team comes together for some of the most awesome challenges in the world!!!!!!

    @Norton : Please add a BNIB Thermaltake esports Challenger Pro keyboard to the prize list. (Just taken out of box for said review).

    For a full review of this keyboard read this review: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/review-thermaltake-esports-challenger-pro.195902/

    @manofthem : Let me check my Steam reserves to see if I can toss a game or two in that pool as well. :)
