Sorry for the stupid question, but I guess I haven't been paying close enough attention. So are we doing a giveaway in addition to the 2 rigs (US/CA and EU) or is that the giveaway?

The rigs are a TPU giveaway (all of TPU) AND we're doing a Challenge giveaway for crunching/folding Team members who participate in the Challenge.

And a game giveaway, yes? Works for me if everyone wants in on it ;)

I didn't realize that, and I think that's pretty awesome! :toast:

I'll put up a hundred bucks for the challenge - which can be split if you want, just let me know.

I plan to give away some of my servers but I don't want to do that until I finally decide which v3 chips I can get and actually have a new system built. So that could be a while. The prices seem to be coming down fairly rapidly on the 14C chips and it's already possible to get good deals on the 12C's. Also need to work out which of the 79xx and 78xx gpu's to get rid of.

I wish I had something to throw in, too... :( I looked around and the only thing I could donate is a Scythe Mugen 4 CPU cooler. The other stuff is as ancient as the card in my avatar... :oops:

You can do that, yes sir. That actually expedites the process when the winners are drawn and posted. The alternative is to hang onto it til the end and then send the link to the winner. In this case, I create a 3 way message with myself, the donor, and the winner. That way I ensure everyone is contacted and taken care of. Either way is fine :)

Thank you for the contribution! :respect: :respect:



Speaking of game giveaway, any different ideas on how to spice up the game giveaway this time around? I'm all for getting some suggestions on how to sexify for this Challenge ;)

I'd like to see the game giveaway transition to 3-5 AAA games only for the final drawing. Everyday during the challenge make a few donated indie titles available for active participants.

Will require more from our donators, but it will keep the final draw suspenseful and I guarantee there won't be leftovers afterwards.

Pm a little on that idea so we can discuss it more, or I'll pm you tomorrow. I'd like to talk it over with you because it sounds pretty enticing! :)


Edit: agh, just sent you a PM. I'm going back to bed now but we'll talk more tomorrow ;)

@theonedub and I have been talking a little bit, and we're working out a way to add some spice to the game giveaway's "sex life" :laugh: If it works out the way we're thinking, it should be pretty exciting for everyone! :D More details will be forthcoming in due time ;)

Also a shoutout to @15th Warlock and @theonedub, among others, on some fantastic donations! :respect:



Also, bump for the Challenge! It's coming! :toast:

I found the following items which should probably be given together since the dram is ecc reg'd.

KTM-SX3168K4/16G[ig] ECC registered DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820239081

supermicro X9DRL-3F-O
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813182343

the m/b doesn't appear to have a locking tab for the PCI graphics slot. It looks like it was purchased open box. The dram is NIB and sealed. The board socket 2011, ATX but remember, this is the older 2011 that will NOT work with Xeon v3 chips. Has onboard graphics.

Going to make an effort to get the 2500k running tomorrow. I also have stopped crunching on my main rig, 3570k, to reinstall windows. I did that about a week ago but have not had time to do it. Tomorrow seems to be the day, but that depends on household chores go. Got to do the stuff that makes my significant other happy before I can play(hardely play anymore) with my toys.

My gosh twilyth, that would be quite a prize. I enjoy crunching, but what keeps me around is the community here. They sheer generosity I have seen from this team is honestly amazing. All the kriejj rigs that have been built. We are all mostly strangers yet somehow we work together like close friends.

Wait.. The challenge is 12 days long? So.. it's like.. the 12 days of Crunchmas? Can we have Crunchmas Day prizes? Just, like, little digital rewards?
♫ On the first day of Crunchmas, Team Captain gave to meeee. ♫

Well, on second thought, maybe we have enough on our plate as it is. Perhaps the next 12 day challenge (possibly near December :p)
