TechPowerUp World Community Grid Team Contest Announcement

The TechPowerUp World Community Grid (WCG) team has been roaring up the rankings thanks to several dedicated participants. In celebration of our continued success, and in an effort to entice new members, we will be holding our first ever TechPowerUp WCG contest starting Monday, June 15th. This competition is geared toward ALL WCG members, not just those putting up huge numbers. Everyone has a chance to win a great prize! Here are the rules:
  • You must be a member of the TPU WCG by June 15th
  • You must accumulate at least 50,000 BOINC points over 90 days to be eligible
If you make it to 50,000 (and almost everyone can), your name will be put into a drawing for an awesome Xclio 1000 full tower case worth US $270! Free shipping to the winner of the drawing is included in the prize! The prize will be to any country/region.

We highly encourage anyone interested to sign up for the TPU WCG by June 16th!! Please contact the WCG forum moderator, paulieg with any questions.

we need something for all crunchers(international),the shipping cost for a cpu(exemple) is cheap so why not.i don't have paypal account but i'm willing to give cnd $$ for shipping if it help.

Yup, a low-end quad CPU would make a lot more sense than a case for crunchers. BUT I really like the idea! :toast: I hope you get a lot of new crunchers, and that they don't stop crunching after the 90 days.

I'll be one of the people that won't stop after 90 days. I have been putting off setting up the client on my PC (and it's been down all week) but this is just enough kick in the butt to get me moving :p

Just register your client to the TPU team, and pile up 50k points. Visit the forum to learn how to do that.

If you can hang 5 until next month, I can help you out with a Thermalright Ultra 120.
I'll just have to see what the shipping costs.

Check out the World Community Grid Forum for all of that information.

And keep in mind that this contest is USA only, so for now, you won't be eligible for the prize. Maybe for the next one, though! And just because there's no prize isn't a reason to not crunch.

How about making it more fair? Make it international with the winner being able to ship the case to anywhere within the continental US?? I'm not living in the US at the moment but i can have it shipped to a friend who could bring it over for me.
