Win AMD...... Stuff?
So this is just a bit of fun aimed at those that are willing to put the effort in here.

To enter you can pretty much do what ever you want.

All you have to do is start your enter post with ***ENTRY*** so that we can differentiate between entries and discussion posts but you can enter as many times as you like.

This is litterally a chance for you lot to have a laugh and take this competition where ever you like.

The more effort you guys make the more effort Ill make and this is the chance for all the regulars that moan about 1 posters to man up and make some effort!

Any registered forum member can enter, the ones that make the most effort / funniest post / those that stand out. Sob stories about 10 year old PC that can only run Solitaire wont get you anywhere.

Feel free to do what ever you like including taking the P out of me. That seems to ahve worked well in the past tbh. Derp faces, comics. Just have a laugh, it doesnt have to be a thread of why you want the box, it could just be something random or epic to catch everyones attention.

Most people disregard boxes, but they deserve a second change at life. I've seen them being packed in sacks, or just thrown into a bin, plunged into recycling machines as if they were nothing more than pieces of cardboard. That's no way to go.
I can promise that I can give this box a good home. With me, it will live a long, happy and healthy life, always dust free, always clean, always at liberty to do what boxes do. I even have some friends it can meet. I run sort of a retirement community of boxes, where they can be themselves without fear of someone bending them or tearing them to pieces to fit something that wasn't meant into them. There are some boxes that have been here since 2006, like one of an Asus A8V motherboard, and a GeForce 6600LE video card.
Their content long gone, obsolete, but not the boxes. They box on and will continue to box until the world just can't be boxed anymore. And I promise, I PROMISE! To keep any bandana wearing mercenary soldier/spy types away from them. Their insane obsession with hiding in boxes and taking the poor defenseless things on the battlefield, to be shot or stepped on by giant robots is the seventh leading cause of box death in the world.
They'll be safe with me.

Why do I want an AMD box?

Because I'm a big fat bloody Ryzen fantard.

I bought the 1800X for stuuuuupid amounts of money when it first launched and now i've dropped significantly less stupid amounts of money for a 2700X recently.

This means that wifey-sauce got the 1800X and 16GB of DDR4 to bring her spaceheater into the modern era, whilst her old FX rig has been donated to a mate so his 9 year old niece can do her homework and a bit of light gaming.




Anyway, makes a nice change because I've mostly been building Intel systems for the last few years. Nice to have some competition back in the market.

So why do I want this box?

I do some game streaming (hence the 8 core stuff, right, any excuse I know) and have been thinking about getting a webcam to stick my ugly mug in the corner somewhere. And having a big fat AMD box behind my head would be cool. At least I think so... Certainly cooler than staring at my godawful facial features.

Dats me. Dats who I iz when i'm streamin N stuff.

Laughing is encouraged. My wife does it all the time. No no, i'm sure she's laughing WITH me...

***ENTRY*** (wink)
For for many centuries I have been creating a kingdom from the ground up, a great kingdom, a kingdom of boxes. However, I have been missing the crown jewel, the ultimate box.... I believe after many decades I have finally found the couronnement of my creation. The final piece to my puzzle. I can finally create and dedicate a shine to the pagan computer gods, specifically the red gods; may they be pleased with my dedication and your sacrifice.

Honestly I think it would be good fun though to have an AMD ryzen box even though I'm running a FX chip. I enjoy small ironies like that. (Sidenote: I once spent $60 on a corsair mousepad, even though I had a $20 mouse)

Nice giveaway! :) I always keep my hardware boxes just to have them on my selves, to display them. Usually I keep every accessories which not needed in ther original boxes so its easy to find if i need them later.

I would love to have one of those boxes because I could put my other spare parts like old HDD-s which are still work fine into them, and it would make some nice contrast on my self with mainly Intel stuff. I already built some rigs on AMD Ryzen but I could not have their boxes because those rigs were built for others.
So If I could get one of these boxes then it would be displayed in the middle to have a nice view on it :)

Good luck every one;)

Really cool idea, can't think of any reasons why I'd need a Ryzen box though! :lol:

Would an i-tx board fit in the box?
