Win an Intel Core i7-3930K + X79 + SSD System Kit

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 31 comments

Here's your chance to win one of our favorite processors.

If you're itching to upgrade your CPU, you must not miss our latest feature on the Core i7-3930K. While Intel’s Core i7-3960X is definitely fast, it's also priced at over $1000. We take price into consideration, and for that reason we have a new favorite Intel processor.

The Core i7-3930K will still you back $600, but we're going to help a handful of Tom's Hardware readers out by giving four of them away. Of course, we realize that the platform is still pricey, so we also have a quartet of Intel DX79SI motherboards and as many 120 GB SSD 320 drives to pack with the CPU. Four lucky winners will walk away with a trio of parts to get them started on their next machine.

Read to the end of our Core i7-3930K and Core i7-3820 review for your chance to win!

The contest opens on December 8, 2011 9:00 PM PST and closes on January 12, 2012 9:00 PM PST.

Four Winners Will Be Chosen Randomly.

Prizes (provided by Intel):
Four (4) prizes consisting of one (1) Core i7-3930K CPU, one (1) DX79SI motherboard, and one (1) 320 Series 120 GB SSD. Approximate Retail Value Each: $600+$280+$200=$1,080

DUE TO LEGAL REQUIREMENTS, THIS CONTEST IS LIMITED TO LEGAL RESIDENTS OF THE USA (EXCLUDING RI) AND 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER.

UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED, ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION WILL ONLY BE USED TO QUALIFY AND CONTACT THE WINNER.

    Maybe readers outside the USA should go to the Toms Hardware site for their country.

    I'm seriously getting really tired of this. The reasons have been explained as clearly as possible yet people still complain.

    Nor does Brazil have Tom's Hardware website... there is an imitation, a site that copies everything that's posted at Tom's Hardware.. And it's NOT only you who's "American", I am Brazilian and I am American too! You are specifically NORTH American. You speak as if only you were American.

    rozzwell - its not really their fault dude.. its USA's terrible laws

    Actually, it has more to do with the laws of other countries than US law. US law allows for sweepstake type contests as long as the participant does not have to pay a fee in order to enter. If you had to pay a fee to enter, US law defines that as gambling and is prohibited. This is why in the US you can't be forced to make a purchase in order to enter.

    Other countries define gambling differently and thus have different regulations regarding contests. For instance, Canada and many European countries require participants in contests to solve some sort of puzzle to enter, making it a game of skill in order to avoid breaking their gambling laws. Since Tom's only requires you to apply for the contest, they would be illegal in many other countries. With so many countries in the world, this becomes a legal nightmare. This is only one of many reasons that worldwide contests become difficult and expensive.

    Another reason is the various countries tax laws. In the US, when you win a prize, contest sponsors need to send the proper tax form to both you and the IRS and you will need to claim the value of the prize as income and pay the appropriate tax. It becomes very difficult to deal with all of the different tax laws of other countries.

    I'm sure this is just a legal issue. Not Tom's picking on non-US folks.

    maybe people under 18 should stop reading too? I understand the over 18 part, but as a 17 year old computer enthusiast with not a whole lot of money, would be nice to win really cool stuff.

    Everyone complain and wine if you looked into it, its not just our laws its there's to. Its not the easiest job to classify material for international shipments. Without classification on every part it would get stuck in customs and then it starts to cost bucks. So get over it I work for a shipping company and deal with international shipments everyday and it costs our customers good money to do so.
