The ASUS VGA Treasure Hunt

ArrrrrCOMPETITION ENDED
 
The ASUS VGA Treasure Hunt
 
Following the success of our previous treasure hunt competitions Overclock3D in association with ASUS are offering our readers the chance to win a new graphics card EVERY week for the next three weeks! Starting with the EN9600GT TOP Edition this week followed by the EN9800GT MATRIX and ENGTX260 MATRIX over the coming two weeks, there really are some awesome cards up for grabs.
 
 
So, what do I have to do?
 
We've sneakily hidden the image on the right somewhere in a previous ASUS review or news article on the website. All you need to do is use your expert treasure hunting skills to track down the image and let us know where it is. Every Sunday for the next three weeks we will pick a winner from the list of people who have found the image and announce it on or forums. Then on the following Monday the whole treasure hunt will start again with a new prize and a new winning location!
 
Week 1 Winner (EN9600GT): Ghosthud1
Week 2 Winner (EN9800GT): Rastalovich
Week 3 Winner (ENGTX260): FreshNClean
 
What do I do if I find it?
 
Email the web address (URL) you found it at to our asushunt@overclock3d.net competition address. For example, if you found the picture in this review, you would need to send us an email in the following format:
 
NAME: Gingerbeard
ADDRESS: Caribbean Sea
FORUM USERNAME: ginger_beard
WINNING URL: http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.php?/gpu_displays/asus_engtx275_896mb_pcie_graphics_card/1
 
Simple eh?
 
 
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 9th August 2009 at 11:00am GMT.
• Normal forum and website terms and conditions apply to your entries.
• One entry per week 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.
• This article and the OC3D forums are not included in the search locations.
 
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.

I have entered. I have been so busy but now I have more time so hopefully can come on the forum more again. Need a new graphics card, mine is stupidly hot and the DVI socket is dodgy now.

Took ages saving up for this computer, can't afford a new VGA.

Well it's great for ASUS, as we're all looking through articles and reviews of their products. I saw things they made that I'd totally forgotten about, so I can see it's pretty good advertising for them. Plus, most of the reviews are pretty positive.Quote

The image will be put into another article/review and we will have to search for it again and re-send the e-mail.

Just a hint to everyone, if you are using OC3D search to find it i'm not so sure it will come up as you can only get a max of 100 articles.

Google, or going through the sections individually are the best options Quote

ASUS are going to be paying for the shipping on this competition so I'd hope that they'd be more than happy to deliver anywhere in the world without any contributions (given how much $$$ they must have in the bank) Quote

How would having the article on the first page make it a treasure hunt? More just a treasure glance in my opinion!Quote

I know this has nothing to do with the topic at hand but I feel somewhat compelled to say... that a number (single or multiple) could never be the answer to life. "Blikey bloke, that's absolute roe-bish" It's completely irrational.

The answer to life's mysteries, to life and the purpose of life lies in the one who established it...the one called Christ.Quote

Our current server software (IIS) doesn't really give any nice graphs.

Good Afternoon,

Since I never had the chance to see how the winning page looks like (are there any for reference) I'm not certain what I'm supposed to look out for.

Will this be a normal image or something more fancy as roll-over or anything like a layer that will show on flash graph when fully loaded? (I never wait for the graphs to finish)

Also...will this show on Firefox with NoScript addon? Do I need to resort to alternative browser? If yes, then which ones are valid?

Another also...sorry about ton of questions...the search engine shows up to 100 results only...some sections return 100 results which might indicate that there are more. How to access full listing?

Thanks in advance for answers.Quote

You're looking for this:

http://www.overclock3d.net/gfx/artic...114116772l.gif

Exactly that. No flash, no scripts or other junk

Your best bet is probably to look through the sections at the top of the website as the search function does indeed stop at 100. Either that or use Google Quote

U know on that other ASUS comp, where we had to find that female, I even went to the stage of enlarging the pics incase she was hidden there. Checking the pulldown of the review pages incase something extra was slipped in.

.. never did find it.. then it was shown in the thread after the comp was finished - and I swear I looked on the page LOL

Think in some of these u can look too long at one time.Quote

It was a good idea telling him, its a great card and it benefits OC3D and Asus.

Besides without competition it would just be a give away.Quote

Never used the search thingy tbh.

Received the Matrix tho. Only really had time to rip the package open and snif through the box. Quality packaging from ASUS tbh. And the card is more than just a 8800GT replacement u can tell just by looking at it.

Get some pics up when I get the chance. More time to myself in work than I get at home (another pc dropped off at the house this morning to be fixed)Quote

I felt I should use some fairly advanced search engine tools. Looky:



Look at the results.

Only 987 news, reviews and articles that have the word Asus in them.

Thats a good question.

I can see why it might not be allowed... I mean i could always say my GF entered the contest as well and have that count as a 2nd chance for me...

It all comes down to whether your GF is hot. If the answer is yes, then a short video showing her searching for Gingerbeard should be all the proof we need

EDIT:

Actually I may answer that seriously after all

By default duplicate entries from the same postal address are invalid. Duplicate IP addresses are investigated too but as there's ISP proxy's and all other kind of crap to think of I don't immediately disqualify.

If you want to appeal for another entry from the same address then PM me and I may allow it...or may not.Quote

In the time it takes to find this picture, the contest will be over, and I'd have wasted enough time to buy one myself.Quote

PMA , Positive Mental Attitude. Seek and ye shall find, I am just glad I started a few days ago and found it after what was probably 2-3 hours, although I do think I looked at the same stuff quite a few times cos of the old paranoia.

Mind you the more that give up the more chance of winning for all those that have found it.

wonder how many that is now Quote

Well i have no more luck, i have got to get up for work at 5:50 in the morning, which means i need to go to bed in the next hour, so i have about an hour left in searching, and it;s game over. Which is shame and i feel disappointed in myself for not being able to find it.:eyes:Quote

Well, Jim made it a little (read: a lot) harder then the previous two, but then again, it is the best card in the competition. You just have to look for it with patience... that's all it takes to have the chance to win this great card.

PS: found it after 1 week of relentless searching, first time I browsed right over it... I can't believe it... but the hundreds of pages all began to look alike to me after a while. Had a fresh start this evening, and I got my chance... again.Quote

I give up, countless hours wasted, 3-4th time searching through all articles and news articles even semi related to Asus.

There is some trickery going on, or Firefox users with adblock are not able to see it.

Oh well :/

Really thought I would have a chance to win after spending so much time searching.

I didn't open every image up to full size, some I did but not all. My only guess it's in one of these full size images.Quote

For our UK guys, remember the competition ends at 11am GMT. As we're currently in BST (GMT+1) you've got an extra hour for what it says on your clocks

Also as we're in the final hours i'll give you just one clue. The word "ASUS" does not appear in the title.

GL Everyone - you currently have a 1 in 18 chance!!Quote

Ahhh, no if only I saw that .

Edit:

Oh wow, I never went in that one, I only clicked (loads of times) on ones that had Asus in the picture, name or description. I didn't use search I should have...

Edit again:

Thanks OC3D for the great comp, even though it sounds as if I had a hard time I love looking for these pics .

Thank you!Quote

the best person won at the end of the competition! I'd already given 6 hours of searching and had ruled out ASUS in the title but wasn't prepaired to search for another 6+ to find the review without ASUS in the title!! here is a balance between time searching vs time you could be spending elsewhere.

bring on the next competiton Quote

Or just re pick out of the 18 It was evil an till you found it Jim once you found it, you what to face palm .Quote

It was not that evil Jim, But it did make me resort to trying to find a program or seach engine to look for .gifs and .png files on overclock3d. This resulted in me wasting about 8 hours looking through pictures ontop of the 10+ hours searching the normal way, just hoping i would spot the ginger fellow easier.

Alas it was futile and i would never have found that review my way, and it seems the only way it would be found is luck or skill or google.

Nice comp though but as i have a 260 already im not too fussed....

I think if no one has come forward by thursday just re draw it with everyone that entered the 2nd competition

no seriously just re draw with the 18 that found it, imoQuote

^^I am up for that, a guy who has sent no posts? I tried to PM him to congratulate him, being a good sport and then realise he/she has contributed nothing to the forum, couple with the fact that he/ she found it and alot of our regulars did not!.

either way its not my call, but I am ready for a rebuild Quote

Unlike the competitions where you had to login to the forum before you could submit your entry, this one only required an email. Hence no reason to even login

I hope they realise all the OC3D goodness they are missing.Quote
