The Collosus Treasure Hunt!

The Collosus Treasure Hunt

If you've been watching our coverage of the recent i40 event and keeping up-to-date on our latest articles, you'll know that we were lucky enough to be one of the first websites IN THE WORLD to receive a pair of BitFenix Collosus cases well ahead of their official release.

Now, while other websites may be fighting to get their hands on one of these elusive chassis for review, we're going to be giving one away! That's right, you could be the proud owner of a brand new, black BitFenix Collosus well before anybody else.

However, true to OC3D's Treasure Hunt roots, we're not going to be making this easy. Hidden somewhere on this website among several thousand articles is the BitFenix logo. It could be anywhere. Your job is to find it.


What am I looking for? 

You're looking for this image, sneakily hidden on any page of any article on the whole entire Overclock3D website (Forums - and this page excluded):

The Collosus Treasure Hunt!

 

What do I do if I find it?

Email the web address (URL) you found it at to our competition e-mail address. For example, if you found the picture in this review, you would need to send us an email in the following format:

NAME: Blackbeard
ADDRESS: Caribbean Sea
FORUM USERNAME: blacky_beard
WINNING URL: http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.php?/cpu_mainboard/ dfi_x58_t3h6_jr_matx_motherboard/1. 

Simple eh?   

 

What if nobody finds it? 

Oh they will..but should we have happened to bury the treasure too deep we will be giving out small clues on a daily basis until the first few entries start rolling in. After that you're on your own!

 

Any other rules?

• Only one entry per person. Names & Addresses will be checked!
• Competition is open to both members and readers. Forum registration required.
• Competition ends Sunday 12th September 2010 at 11:00am GMT.
• Normal forum and website terms and conditions apply to your entries.
• One entry will be picked at random to be the winner.
• Overclock3D reserves the right to refuse entries.
• Publicly sharing of the answer URL will result in disqualification.

 

You can discuss your thoughts on the competition and compare notes with other hunters in the forums

 

Overclock3D will not share your details with any other party. All entry details are destroyed after a winner has been chosen to protect your privacy.

As one chapter closes, another begins.... Much the same with OC3D's industry leading competitions! While the other websites fall over themselves trying to get review samples its time for OC3D to launch its BitFenix Collosus Competition! You could be the proud owner way before they hit the shops, need more details on what to do?

So, if you won this, would you be the only owner of one in the UK? That's pretty darn sweet, we've seen earlier this week a preview of the case and it's certainly a special one to have. I like it.Quote

Theres only one of the logos on the whole site with the OC3D Blue back ground. And you only get one entry so if you send it in and its wrong thats it Im affraid, thats part of the normal OC3D rules.Quote

Sure by the time I found it, my wrist was hurting, and yes it was from too much scrolling and clicking But it IS possible people! You don't need clues, just dedication and hard work. Mind you I'm biased as the less people that find it, the more chance I have of winning! Mwah ha ha ha ha!Quote

Hey!!! guys:

where are the terms and conditions of this contest?!! I received a notice from my Facebook account because I'm subscribed to BitFenix channel. Can somebody explain me if the contest are limited to UK? I have been looking too, but there are a lot of reviews. It would be very difficult? (¬¬) I need a clue too.

Is the contest valid for other countries?Quote

my eyes are bleeding so I am giving up. Wel done to those who found expecially Taurus for getting it really quick, my myself I am useless at these , although I did see apirate on teh back of a bus once

I will probably try again later once I have relaxed a little (RSI giving me Gyp)

Good luck to both of you or all 3 if thats how many are in - great odds!Quote

I've got a job and Uni to worry about, but i still agree that we shouldnt have a clue, origionally i did, but after spending my free time looking decided whoever has found is lucky and good to notice it lol, i have decided give up as it was taking so much of my time up but was good fun reading the old articles again Quote

I think the timing of this was just unfortunate. Most people are starting school and such so are struggling for time.

Maybe if the competition had started while people had been mid-term and more "in the flow" of whatever they had been doing the competition may have been a more a comfortable prospect.Quote

It was in a memory article for mushkin memory (that is teh link to fish and chips I think i.e. as in "mush" y peas.

Unfortunately for me I did not click on to that,, instead I thought Newspaper (used for wrapping the Fish and Chips in) so looked through all the news articles. Imagine how excited I was when I found really old articles with bundles of newspapers as their images.

Still after searching all the through them and no joy I started a "reverse search" oldest first of all the reviews - that was quite painful and produced nothing. So I was totally flumoxed.

My final effort was to just click through reviews until I found it, and tbh I nearly missed the image.

It is in amongst this review somewhere
