Why is everyone moaning that the winners haven't been announced?.. You've gotta understand that Tom and the rest of the team are extremely busy most of the time especially with all the new boards, CPUs, cases etc. etc. and then theres maintaining the website as well.. So jus be patient =]

I'd like to know how Tom talked Mushkin into custom making White Painted RAM for these PC's. Talk about pulling a rabbit out of your hat!

They likely made samples in different colours before they decided which one to market. Tom probably scooped himself one of those samples/ prototypes for the comp

The videos show the rigs gaming

Crysis does excellent. Crytek is like Messiah to gaming. Many question the code. It's old now and in many ways produces more than Metro 2033 PATH engine not all in the same areas. Every game has its perk

Well Tom is obviously good at his job and the manufacturers of the products clearly recognise this, and due to the fact that overclock3d.net and ts youtube channel are rather well known you would think that they would jump at the opportunity to get some unique, limited edition products out there.

Just putting together the parts supplied for three fine systems took a lot of wrangling with manufacturers I'm sure. But he actually talked them into building a product (that Mushkin RAM) that according to the three videos, is not gonna be offered for sale anywhere.

It's just for this promotion and giveaway. He obviously has their ears and a lot of influence with them as well.

Maybe he should wear a Wizard's Cap for his next broadcast,...........
