i didnt include the nicks of the people who came up with the idears as i think we should all focus on the idears themselves and not judge by who made them
oh, and no! the Xtreme Oracle competition idear is not from gf4ti4200
please read the descriptions of the different competitions and then think about what competition of the 10 winning idears you would like to see, wich one you think would be most fun to do and wich one you would most likely take part in and have fun
the winning competition will be held soon and the top 10 entries in that final competition will each win an

The best performing passive cooled rig wins.
5.Xtreme Smashing Competition

We (the mods) will then use thos questions in a quiz (multiple choice).
The first one to answer all questions correctly,
or the one with the most questions answered correctly in the limited time of the contest wins.
9.Xtreme Pet Comeptition
You would have to dress your (or your friends/neighbours) pet up in the most geeky outfit (tshirt, glasses etc) and place it in front of the computer looking at the monitor.
The funniest pic/video submitted wins.
The mods would pick 10 integer numbers via random.org between 1 and whatever the highest ORB 3dmark01 score is on that day.
The 10 integers generated will be target 3dmark01 scores and are kept secret for the duration of the contest.
Entrants would then submit screenshots of three 3dmark01 scores.
The goal would be to hit one of the 10 secret scores.
If a particular secret score were not hit directly, the closest score to it would be considered the winnner.
If there were a tie, the person to first submit the particular score would win.
