  1. If you submit the highest-frequency overclock on either CPU, youíll win a Core i7-980X processor, an Intel DX58SO motherboard, and two Intel X25-M SSDs to build a quick little RAID 0 array with.
  2. If your submission falls into second or third place, youíll win a Core i7-980X processor and DX58SO motherboard.
  3. If youíre fourth through 24th (the next 20 highest entrants), youíll win two cases of Talking Rain Sparkling ICE water to tide you over until it gets a little cooler outside (hey, itís still in the 90s down here in Southern California). That's 24 winners total.

hmmm $209 investment for well a ton of money for first place. Now that's what I'm talking about!! Finally a contest where you could still come ahead after buying the ln2!!


Of course the 4U2doLn2 contest has that same appeal.
