    TechPowerUp's World Community Grid (WCG) team is on a roll. It currently generates the fourth highest production of BIONC points in the world, and is growing. To help accelerate its growth further, our WCG community is announcing the February Challenge. The contest requires you to net at least 25,000 WCG points for TPU's WCG team in the contest period (08/Feb/2013 to 08/Mar/2013).

    At the end of the contest, winners will be picked completely at random, who will stand to win one each of thirty (30+) prizes, ranging from Radeon HD 7770 graphics cards to Core i7 "Sandy Bridge-E" processors, LGA2011 motherboards, PSUs, memory kits, other enthusiast PC hardware, games (Steam/Origin/U-Play keys), gift cards, and consumables (such as TIM tubes), all of which are community sourced.

    For more information, and to get crunching, visit this thread.

    Sorry but there is need for a small correction. It currently generates the fourth highest production of World Community Grid points in the world. With all the science projects that use the BOINC middleware combined, this is not the case.

    Note: I wrote this to avoid confusion of BOINC in general and World Community Grid (WCG) in particular. The challenge is about WCG only. :)
    Norton says thanks.
