    Yeah, it looks like they misspelled my name, and even got my city wrong. Hopefully it will get fixed quickly.

    Any way we could have this contest without having to make a stupid FB account and 'like' THG? If I did not 'like' THG, I would not have joined!

    Also, congratulations to the winners. Happy overclocking!

    Seriously, has anyone else never won any luck-of-the-draw contest, ever?

    I once spent months applying for sweepstakes and contests, scholarships, anything. Thousands of them. Not one did I win.
