Norton has been afk with life. I'm sure if someone else wants to push this forward, there would be no complaints.

I was hoping that @phill would continue this with some crunching contests. :respect:
Well about 10 minutes ago I did sign us up to a challenge and I've also created one for us as a team to get to 4 billion points before the end of the year!! I think it seems quite doable considering we are nearly at 3.86 billion points....

If there's any suggestions, thoughts etc. for what we can do, please anyone and everyone shout out give us your ideas, we'll put something together :)

I’ll join back in if this is for F@H. Although I’ve been playing the Witcher 3 in my time away from work. Might as well give the 3800X a workout.

It's always going on, I don't know what anyone is doing at the moment as the majority of you are over the pond and I'm stuck in the UK :(

Would anyone like to volunteer to have kit delivered to their home and send it on from there if we were able to do a giveaway?? :)

If the kit is easily shippable (can re-use the boxes, etc), I'll do it. I have a UPS account with discounts too so shipping even heavy stuff here domestically won't be bad. :toast: But I'll need to plan it out as I travel for work as well.

I lost my father last month due to covid. :cry::ohwell: He had just finished chemo for his colon cancer right before it hit him.

like this
I've got a 1700x with wraith cooler going free. If someone takes on the mantle.

Oh dammit bro, very sorry to hear this news!!!!!!:cry::cry::cry:
My deepest condolences to you and your family brother.

Yep, I'm sure that is what that meant.

I might have a newer B350 AMD motherboard to donate in this if we can get this going again.

Maybe a Thanksgiving giveaway. That would make it manageable before the Christmas holiday season?

I stay fairly busy and free time is a premium these days but I owe a bit to these giveaways as I have been the recipient a few times of some of this loot.

It got me started with wcg for sure when Norton donated an FX-8150/board/cooler/ram (that is still running) to me many years ago.

I’d be willing to help throw builds together or act as a staging point for the gear. I have prime so we frequently have many spare boxes and air bags so shipping supplies are easily accessible :)

So sorry guys, I've been crazy busy with things at work and then coming home, I've hardly been able to check the forums for much other than posting up the daily scores and that takes a little while as well...

If there's anything we can arrange for in the US or the UK or even both, then please don't let me get in the way for not being around and arrange it yourselves :) I would love to do a giveaway with maybe some games or just cash towards something...

If anyone has some hardware they'd like to give away, please post what you have here and we can see if someone can take it in and then build it and then get it moving to the winner?? Would that be worth a go guys?? :)

Well guys, I think it's time we had a give away or two so, here's a post starting this off.. If there's anyone over in the US (which sadly counts me out but I'm still going to try and help and put something together for this to happen) who'd like to host a few parts, maybe get a rig put together, then I'm all for it.

I know we have a massively amazing community when it comes to kindness and everything else, my first give away was done last year to @blobster21 who I hope is still enjoying the systems as we speak :) I also have to get another sorted out (massive apologies @Solaris17 but I haven't forgotten you!!) to get sent off, so we might have a dual or triple give away depending on how lucky I can get with a few bits of kit I've got my eyes on for.. My best mate in the US is on the look out for me for a few things, so I'm hoping to make the most of it...

So... could anyone put their name forward for possibly helping with the build/collection of hardware or anything at this point? We'd seriously like to do something not just for the team but for the community that built the team here at TPU :)
Apologies for being a bit of a crap captain for this side of things, lets see if we can do something right and help out a few people whilst doing it :D

I know we have a massively amazing community when it comes to kindness and everything else, my first give away was done last year to @blobster21 who I hope is still enjoying the systems as we speak :) I also have to get another sorted out (massive apologies @Solaris17 but I haven't forgotten you!!) to get sent off, so we might have a dual or triple give away depending on how lucky I can get with a few bits of kit I've got my eyes on for.. My best mate in the US is on the look out for me for a few things, so I'm hoping to make the most of it...

So... could anyone put their name forward for possibly helping with the build/collection of hardware or anything at this point? We'd seriously like to do something not just for the team but for the community that built the team here at TPU :)
Apologies for being a bit of a crap captain for this side of things, lets see if we can do something right and help out a few people whilst doing it :D

I'll giveaway an EVGA Z390 Dark to Mr. Phill :)

Well guys, I think it's time we had a give away or two so, here's a post starting this off.. If there's anyone over in the US (which sadly counts me out but I'm still going to try and help and put something together for this to happen) who'd like to host a few parts, maybe get a rig put together, then I'm all for it.

I know we have a massively amazing community when it comes to kindness and everything else, my first give away was done last year to @blobster21 who I hope is still enjoying the systems as we speak :) I also have to get another sorted out (massive apologies @Solaris17 but I haven't forgotten you!!) to get sent off, so we might have a dual or triple give away depending on how lucky I can get with a few bits of kit I've got my eyes on for.. My best mate in the US is on the look out for me for a few things, so I'm hoping to make the most of it...

So... could anyone put their name forward for possibly helping with the build/collection of hardware or anything at this point? We'd seriously like to do something not just for the team but for the community that built the team here at TPU :)

I don't know that I've got much in the way of useful hardware to contribute, but am more than willing to be a builder and/or depot.

Right guys and gals, if we where to do a give away, how would anyone like to suggest we do it? Do we make sure we have a limited requirement for say, time served, points accrued? Just wondering what we could possibly do to help this thread move along and whilst I understand it's difficult with certain things at the moment, if there's anything I can do, I'd like to make this happen.

Wondered about something like -

1st place full rig or something close to
2nd place CPU motherboard or RAM or possibly all of them?
3rd place some form of a cash price maybe? I dunno...
4th/5th Possibly some Steam credit or something??

What do people think?? :) Very interested to hear what others would like to see happen for this giveaway :)
