Posting here cause i know many people will hopefully see this. Having trouble deciding whether the RVO3 is a good case and the 600t bit tech gives the 600t and absolute serving due to its cooling capabilities whilst most say its pretty decent. Also whether i should buy the gtx 560 msi twin froz or gigabyte gtx 560 soc to 950 mhz price gap is 20 aus dollar about 10 euro. is an extra 30 aus dollar worth it for a hx 1000 watt over silversone stridr gold 1000w.

the winners will, most probably, be mentioned in this thread

the guys are VERY busy though

i doubt anyone will know until the weekend (or later)

when it happens... it happens

take it from my experience... the more we pester the team... the more peeved they get... the longer things take to happen ....best to just let them get on with 'stuff'

Wow that thing looks huge, I'm guessing it's for multi card setups using PCI-E extensions, else there can't be much use for it being so big.

Hmmm! if 21st of June is the summer solstice, then the earth must be closest to the sun = hottest day.

the hottest day must be at the height of summertime, and so must be the middle of summer.

365/4 = 91.25

the middle of 91.25days = ~45

21st of June - 45days = approx 7th of may

so... the 7th of may is the beginning of summerQuote

from a quick google search

Summer begins in the Northern Hemisphere on June 21, 2011, at 1:16 p.m. Here's more about the first day of summer—the summer solstice—plus, facts, folklore, and some sensational summer photos!

and why is it all the contest threads always go way off topic



See when each season starts for 2011 and 2012.Quote

13-06-2011, 04:25:19

dugdiamond
lol

the earth travels around the sun in a parabolic orbit

if we are at the closest distance on ~21st june, then we must be at the apex of the curve, and therefore the earth will be at roughly the same distance from the sun on the 20th and 22nd, the 19th and 23rd, etc...

so, (you all ask!!!) why does it get warmer after the 21st june ?

answer: as the earth was travelling away from the sun (autumn and part-winter) it cooled, and it takes the same amount of time to heat back up again on its' journey nearing the sun.

also, as the sun heats and cools our planet, the earth expands and contracts.

the atmosphere does this more so, and as it expands, it thins and warms, giving less chance of cloud cover, and less dense air :: lets more heat through the reverse of this is obvious, so i will not explain it as it is basic science.

... and don't even get me started on the faults of the gregorian calendar - lolQuote

What the F am I reading

What does the earth orbiting around the sun have to do with anything, the official start of Summer is the 21st just like Christmas is the 25th. We all know it gets warmer when the Earth tilts on it's axis, again WTF does this have to do with anything Quote

I still like the simplistic view that I used to get as a child:

Spring is March, April and May

Summer is June, July and August

Autummn is September, October and November

Winter is December, January and February

The reason it has gone off topic is there is no sign of winners being announced.

Not to sound ungrateful or anything, because I really do appreciate Overclock3D and MSI for arranging this competition. However my constructive criticism would be that this could all be avoided by listing a date for the winners to be picked and then a date and time for it to be announced.

Yes the staff are very busy and I understand that, but when you set down a date for it to be announced it allows you to schedule around it.Quote

Most things were that simple when we're children.

In South Wales, atleast, it seems to be November->March=Winter, March->November=Autumn. For one or two weeks in May->September we will get Summer.Quote

that's what i meant - i couldn't find the right word (in a mind block). you now... when it is on the tip-of-your-tongue, and you cannot think of it, even if your life depended on it!

the human race is self-centered, and we consider ourselves to be the cause of everything. just because we have been doing things a certain way for only a few thousand years, does not mean it is correct! we are but infants in our evolution, and like infants... very niave!

until a few hundred years ago, the earth was flat and the sun revolved around the earth i wonder what ground-breaking news will be learned tommorrow?

perhaps, it will be the winners of this comp'! but, alas, my crystal ball is clouded... for now!Quote

Still maybe one day i will be able to feel what its like to win something i have more bad luck than good.

P.S just a quick one on the summer thing people have been talking about the reason it gets hot in the summer is that the earth tilts to an angle facing into the sun and being less distance away thats why we are meant to have a good summer lol

lol you're acting like you paid money for a product that hasn't shown up. If you've put money into something, you're more than entitled to complain if its "late". This is a FREE competition, OC3D only stated a competition CLOSE DATE, and didnt say when the winners will be announced. So quit complaining, and just be glad OC3D are even running great competitions like this one and allowing you to participate for free.

lol well... the site needs to generate revenue somehow. Its just business. It has no impact on the fact that the competition is FREE for you to enter. Perhaps you pay a monthly subscription fee to OC3D that i dont know about

But at the end of the day, there was no draw date set... so you cant call them up on being slow to release the results. If you dont like the wait.. feel free not to participate Quote

Paid for reviews? BAH HAA HAA HAA HAA! I have never heard of any reviewer getting paid-paid for reviews, they should be grateful enough to get access to free kit to review and return. Competition prizes are usually sponsored, but I have not heard of any review site getting extra $ to be able to advertise as being part of the prizes.

Traffic and advertising is how the usual current model of generating revenue in the online world, OC3D has to keep high standards to keep users coming back... or they can be more isolationist (oh Rodney) and close even more doors and windows to their content to hopefully force in more traffic and cash.

Diggin', diggin', diggin', keep on diggin' chaotic_russ. TROLOLOLOLOL! Oh and by the way, the negative voting I think has a 24 hour limit of 1 negative vote per user. So at least 10 members reading this thread could be bother to vote you as being a bit of a .Quote

It's because OC3D and MSI choose when the winners are announced, they'll tell us when they feel it's the right time.

Now let's all get back to topic instead of being annoying towards the hosts of this competition.Quote

It may be that OC3D aren't the one's doing the draw in this case, just passing the list of names off to their contact at MSI for them to draw in whatever fashion they see fit (and in the process ensuring that no MSI employees/family win). MSI have offered recent competitions on other forums, and whilst some have already been drawn and sorted at least one hasn't been. In that instance MSI's liaison has some RL issues that are taking up his time and delaying the draw.

I hate to be white knighting all over the place but really, there are other far more egregious things wrong elsewhere on the internet and much more worthy of your rage. Yes, this is taking a little while, but it's just not that big a deal.Quote

Typically once a reviewer does a review he or she gets to keep the item. Oh and Rodney gets paid for reviews too, and then sells these items on Ebay.Quote

I know you said typically but more than you think is required to be returned after the review is completed. Alot depends on the reviewer status I beleive. Someone like Tom who has been doing this for a long time and has a large following prolly keeps more than he has to return. But one could say if they are allowed to sell it after reviewing it can be considered being paid for reviews.Quote

If I won the mobo i'd have fun making a cardboard box case to put it in until I can get the money together for an Xigmatek Elysium.

If I won a 560ti i'd sell my 6850 and get another 560ti to SLI.

Well said Tom, is no need for people to get all arsey over a competition. Is free to enter with low odds of winning (which have now been slightly improved).

Whoever wins any of the prizes should be greatful that they even had the chance to enter in the first place. After all this is mainly a review site / forum for tech wizards and noobs. Less hating more patience.Quote

PM has been sent Tom. And thanks everyone for the congrats, I'm gobsmacked

So, does anyone have to hand a list of cases that can fit this beastie? It's going to take a fair old while for me to get bits together but I may as well start planning Quote

The full towers HAF's, Xigmatek Elysium, Coolermaster Cosmos PURE Black V2 just a few off the top of my head.Quote

IMHO the antec1200 is an olde case now. (ie: it only has USB2 ports)

you are going to need new stuff anyway...

SB CPU

4GB/8GB of dual-DDR3 RAM

sataIII drives

decent cooling

etc...

might as well get an up-to-date case to go with it all Quote

The form factor is listed as 'XL-ATX (34.5cm(L) x 26.4cm(W))' rather than EATX (33.0cm(L) x 30.5cm(W)), so I'm not sure it'll fit in all those cases.

Apologies, the v3 I meant...didn't realise it wasn't out in the UK yet though. lolQuote

Quick look and it looks like the HAF X is the cheapest case that'll fit it on Scan, on a side note Scan are selling the 1200 V3 so it's available now. Quote

So, it's been a while .

Sadly, finances dictated that it's taken me much, much longer to upgrade to Sandy Bridge than I wanted to, but through a rather circuitous route I've finally been able to use my MSI Bog Bang Marshall. Hey, they never said which summer I would be starting the Big Bang with. And I have to say, the board looks lovely.

http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/567...gmarshall1.jpg

I've had help from other party's, and rest assured I'll be thanking them too. It's still overkill, but hopefully it'll last for as long as my previous Intel and AMD systems have done and allow me a far greater level of flexibility than previously. Heck, I might even try 3*SLI or XFire if I can pick the parts up on the cheap

Thanks very OC3D and MSI for the Big Bang Marshall, and sorry it's been so long without an update.Quote
