*shipping cost to be paid by the winner*
I'm donating it to the WCG crowd. I'm doing this for the good of the team and the crunching community and as such I want to stipulate that it goes to a recognised cruncher. Maybe someone that would do well with a better card to crunch with? I'd be pissed if it was given away just to be sold

Link here:
http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=183928

Requirements/terms to qualify for a prize:
- Participate for the duration of the Mother's Day Challenge
- Earn a minimum of 10,000 BOINC points for Team WCG-TPU during the Qualifying period (see below)
- Qualifying period ends when all participants reach 10,000 BOINC points or 5/19/2013 (whichever comes 1st)
- Winners will be chosen randomly at the end of the qualifying period.
- Participation in the Game giveaway will require that you are actively crunching during this Challenge

How Random Winners Will be Drawn (see below):
To ensure everyone gets a fair shake and to minimize any potential conflict of interest while maintaining the highest level of transparency- I have drafted a new way to draw winners. The system uses (3) members and works as follows:

Originally Posted by The System
Member 1: This member creates a list of all qualified participants usernames. This list is sent to Member 2.

Member 2: Using the list of names, Member 2 will assign each entrant a unique number. A list of the usernames with the unique numbers is sent back to Person 1. The list of just the random numbers is sent to Member 3.

Member 3: Member 3 has a list of just numbers. They use Random.Org or whatever random system to select which number wins a given prize. The list of winning numbers and the associated prize is then sent back to Member 1.

Member 1: Using the lists, Member 1 ‘decodes’ the winning numbers into the winning usernames and posts the results.

The lists are sent as Private Messages through the forum. This establishes an electronic record of everything while also preventing alterations of lists after the drawing.

When the winning usernames are posted by Member 1, Member 2 can verify that the number belongs to the correct username and Member 3 verifies that the number was actually pulled as a winner.

The system makes sure that there is no bias or other favoritism at play when winners are drawn. Winners are drawn based on a random number instead of usernames- where a possibility exists to redraw if that person doesn’t like who won, draw a friend, draw themselves, pass on new members, or skip doing a random drawing all together.

My hope is that this will alleviate any concerns about drawings and their legitimacy. If it works smoothly, I would like to see this become the new standard when conducting giveaways that have prizes donated by the community.

If there are any questions about this system, drop me a PM.
Note(s):
- If for some reason you want to participate but start late you may still qualify for the prizes, PM me or the Team Captain (Chicken Patty) to discuss your situation and we'll make those decisions on an individual basis ;)

Great, thanks! I'll have my i7-3612QM running 24/7 and see what I can muster with my other equipment. I'd love to run all of it too, but I can guarantee that won't be happening. I'm loaning my i7-920 system to a friend for the summer--he gets to use it for games on the condition that it also crunches, so that should be something too.

I'm in! Kinda fitting for Mother's Day, as the Cancer that took my Mother is the reason I've been Folding/Crunching for the last 5 years. We will find a cure one day!

I am in of course.

Edit: I will put all projects except WCG on "no new workunits" during the challenge.

Edit 2: if the recipient of the Logitech speakers needs to pay more than 20 euro for the shipping, I am willing to pay a part myself. I did not realise that some participants live in what the postal service regards as Eurozone 2 and 3, hence this offer.

Damn, that's amazing! :toast:

I won't know until Wednesday late, but I can probably throw in another Windows 7 key, possibly two :)
Yeah, it's really amazing.

I received quite a few PMs (obviously) throwing in games. I can't say I'm surprised, since this team has really proven to be an awesome bunch in past giveaways, but it certainly was encouraging to see so many adding to the goodness :)

More keys, games or software, are always welcomed ;) :toast:

It turns out that I didn't actually have a C2D E8400 :(

Instead, I had a pair of E8500s, so I've installed one of those. Windows wouldn't boot when I had the other 2GB of memory installed. I suspect that one of the sticks is bad--I'll look into that tomorrow. So for now it's running on 2GB of RAM. That will be upgraded before I ship it out--somewhere around here I have a good deal more RAM :p

Norton, do you want me to include the stock Intel heatsink as well? It's not great (mid 50s load)--but since I don't believe that any overclocking will be possible it should be fine.

Has the points limit been set? If so to what? At the moment all I can throw in is 3 cores from my phenom 965be and maybe that c2d 6300 if I can get usb boinc running. I'll throw them in regardless though.

Ooh win7 keys look nice.

We have nine days, and I'd imagine that three cores of a PhII would do about 2.4k PPD (IIRC I got about 3.2-3.3k on a stock-clocked PhII 965). So that puts you well past the required amount ;)

I saw that but just did not look assuming all relevant information would be in the first post. Silly silly me.

You'll be fine. With 9 days I could almost hit the point requirment with my s939 x2 rig by itself. A 965 ought to breeze through 10k points with days to spare. :toast:

Hey Team- just some clarification on the start/end times and dates:

Challenge will start on 5/10/2013 @ 0:00 GMT (5/9/2013 @ 8pm Eastern)
Challenge will end on 5/19/2013 @ 24:00 GMT (5/19/2013 @ 8pm Eastern)
Total time- 10 days
* I've added this to the OP as well.

Figured we would need to address this at some point (saw 9 days mentioned a few times)- WCG will use the times above to show the daily totals for the Challenge.

Hope this clears things up a bit and my apologies for any confusion :eek:

Bring it! All help is welcome :toast:

FYI- WCG crunching is a much better stability test IMHO than IBT or prime AND you get some valuable work done while heating up your rig ;)

I like to run Prime95/LinX or some stress test for an hour or so just to verify that my OC is OK and that I won't have it BSOD and mess up the WUs in progress. But after that, ye, I will turn to WCG and let it stress test and do something at the same time :toast:

I give my new crunching rigs about 2-3 hrs run time to make sure I have all of the updates done/everything is running OK- then they get put at full throttle crunching until.... forever or until they break, whichever comes first :D

I do set the work buffer low for the first few days just in case it starts throwing errors.
