The TBG 2017 Holiday Prize Drawing!
« on: November 14, 2017, 03:02:54 PM »
Thanks to the incredible generosity of the broader tech community, TBG will be giving out a boat-load of great gear in this year’s Holiday Prize Drawing. Multiple companies have provided samples of their new products as giveaways, one TBG forum member will be donating (and shipping) a brand-new ITX case, and another forum member has offered to cover shipping costs for the rest of the prizes. We’re so excited about this “giving spirit” that we’re throwing in a big prize of our own, which we bought at retail simply for testing.

So without further ado, here are the prizes:



1. Wireless Gaming Mouse: Logitech G403 Prodigy (thank you to Logitech for providing this sample)
2. HTPC Case: SilverStone GD09 Home Theater PC ATX (from TBG’s collection)
3. ITX Case: Phanteks Enthoo Evolv PH-ES215P_BK (thank you to a generous forum member for providing this sample)
4. 140mm-class CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-C14S (thank you to Noctua for providing this sample)
5. 120mm-class CPU Cooler (not pictured): Reeven Hans (thank you to Reeven for providing this sample)
6. Low-Profile CPU Cooler: Reeven Brontes or Noctua NH-L9a-AM4 (for AMD Ryzen) (thank you to Reeven and Noctua for providing these samples)
7. M.2 to PCIe Adapter Card: SilverStone ECM22 Dual M.2 to PCIe X4/SATA 6G plus TP01-M2 Thermal Pad (thank you to SilverStone for providing these samples)



8. Case Cooling Package: Two Reeven Kiran 120mm RGB Fans plus Reeven “Four Eyes Touch” 5.25” Drive Bay Fan Controller (thank you to Reeven for providing these samples). Reeven put this package together just for this giveaway - these Kiran fans are seriously brand-new, just-released swag! Note that the RGB effects are controlled via a selector on the fans themselves, not the touch controller, which is for speed control only.

And here are the rules:

1. To enter, simply post a message in this forum thread, listing your top three prize choices. Choose wisely, as the Grand Prize Winner will get all three of their prize picks, the First Place Winner will get two of the remaining prizes, and Second Place Winner will receive one prize.
2. The prize drawing will run from November 14th to December 5th, with three winners being chosen via random number generator and contacted on Dec. 6th.
3. Open only to residents of the 48 contiguous United States. While we love having readers all over the world, shipping prizes across borders gets very expensive, very fast!

We want to reiterate that without the generous support of various manufacturers, as well as two amazing forum members, this prize drawing would not have been possible!

Good luck to all the new forum newcomers as well as veterans in this year's prize drawing!

One thing is for sure: the Logitech G403 is going to be awarded to someone, considering everyone has listed it as one of their picks, and it looks like the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX case is also very much in demand, not surprising given how stylish it is!

Hey folks, this just in: Reeven's new case cooling upgrade kit! Reeven was kind enough to send us this brand-new swag just in time for the prize giveaway. Literally, these Kiran RGB fans are hot off the assembly line! Not only are they RGB, but they also have high-end fluid dynamic bearings. This is the real deal, not some cheap run at the RGB craze (like most RGB fans). And that fan controller actually has touch controls - very trick!



This kit is worth nearly $100 - I know some of you want to list it as your top prize pick!!!
