View Full Version : XFX Contest! Details here!~!

05-23-2008, 03:49 PM
We are looking for the most creative way you can come up with to show off your support for XFX to not only your peers but to your community! Get out there and spread the word, make a banner, create a sign, even use an XFX product if you have one. Simply post a picture of your inspiration here in the Xtreme Systems Forums. YouTube videos are welcome but to be acceptable you must put your Xtreme Systems Alias in the video description to prove it is you.

The XFX employees will vote on the most creative and interesting entry. The entry deadline is Sunday June 8th. Results will be announced on Wednesday June 11th and the winner will be notified by PM for their contact information. The winner will win an XFX 8800GT XXX Edition (PV-T88P-YDD4).


The contest is only open to all U.S. and Canadian residents. You do not need to own an XFX product to participate in this contest.

I like how the you gave a nice large envelope of time to complete this. I will put my mind to work coming up with something good.

05-26-2008, 04:49 AM
I tattoo XFX text to meh back... oh wait this was only for US + Canada... :shakes:

05-26-2008, 08:30 AM
Would you allow for the rest of the world to enter when we pay extra shipping costs if we win? I mean, it would greatly enhance competition.

where did you get that memory heatsink or is that stock???

looks very similar to that guy that was making custom ones recently :)

05-28-2008, 07:18 PM
Yup, thats one of iandh's custom heatspreaders.

My card has a very strange layout with all the voltage regulators on the top side of the card. Luckily I was able to mount the separate heatspreader for those on the top side of the card.

I love the black on black look of them and the anodized aluminum matches the support bracket nicely.

Those are nice heatsinks.

he winner will win an XFX 8800GT XXX Edition (PV-T88P-YDD4). i lol to the prizes haha...
but still why open only for us n canada
since the user of xfx is around the world...

05-30-2008, 02:40 AM
Probably because the prize is being paid for by that region of xfx marketing dept.
Inter-regional marketing/meddling is not common

06-02-2008, 01:38 AM
I might give this a try... :)

06-02-2008, 11:25 AM
I made a video with what I have (crappy digital camera), because I can't afford a better one. :( - Hence the reason why I'm using a 7100GS lmao.

Anyways, youtube somehow made it out of sync, so please don't pay too much attention to its flaws.

I'm known as "Snake" in the movie, and my brother is known as "Tesla". We're basically out on a mission to promote XFX products by any means necessary.

***I did not steal food from the convenience store; it was already arranged with the owner, Mike. I also got everyone's permission to put them up on the web after taping it***

Hope you all enjoy it, because I sure did :p:

We have five days left. You don't really have to be talented to win this contest. This is mainly based off of exposure so if you show some effort you can definitely have a shot. My department will be voting on the entries at the beginning of next week and will announce the winner on Wednesday. Keep em rolling in. A lot of time this weekend!

06-03-2008, 02:34 PM
Could you possibly extend this to June 9, one more day?

I was unable to post this in time cause this website has had registration problems for over a week and today was the first time I could post. But in any case I put a lot of time and effort into this so I will post it any way. :)

Hope you like it.

Be sure to have your speakers turned up before clicking on it.

We would like to congratulate Noob-ftw as our winner. His video, though quite long =), was very funny and showed many people how pumped someone can get about XFX. Please join us in showing him our gratitude.

Going forward post your ideas for future contests that you would like to compete in as we will probably be doing this again in a couple months. Post your ideas here: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?p=3054734

06-11-2008, 04:18 PM

OMG, this is actually the first time I won something, EVER.

This video card does mean a lot to me, because I'm off to University next year, where I have to pay ~$10,000 x5 to get my bachelor of engineering.

Thank you to XFX and XS for having this contest, I really appreciate your gratitude.


06-11-2008, 10:50 PM
Congrats Noob-ftw :up:

hopefully i can be involved in the next contest, though i didnt win this time i will continue to make some xfx wallpapers to keep you guys with fresh material

looking forward to the next contest :toast:

06-13-2008, 07:15 PM
OMG, I was right, it's Noob-ftw! His video is awesome and we can see work effort!

06-13-2008, 08:04 PM
Congratulations, Noob-ftw!

I am sure it took quite a while to come up with some creative ideas and make a video like that. Well done, you certainly deserved it! :clap:
