Sadly, it isn't a worldwide contest and you can't enter if you are in Australia rip

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 3 points 10 months ago

Yeah, sorry -- only US/Canada this time around.

Nuckles_56 2 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

At least this will be at the top so people will see it before going any further and getting even more disappointed

knightmaster731 0 points 10 months ago

USA for life, Canada is fine to i guess. :P

Astravius 2 points 9 months ago

We never get any recognition with our 36mil population.

fangasm 2 points 10 months ago

Nuckles_56 2 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

Yes, if you are not in the US/Canada, you will get a message saying

Sorry, this promotion is not available in your region

montiago 1 Build 4 points 10 months ago

If only it was MDPC-X credit D:

Honestly, the only thing I'd want would be the 1070. Give the rest to my cousin so he doesn't have to get as much for his PC build.

Scdouglas 4 points 10 months ago

I'm looking forward to losing another one of these so much. Now if any staff member feels pity for me that I never win any of these and I'm still using an Athlon X4 760K PM me and hook me up with some stuff. I might even upload a completed build if you ask nicely ;).

Wi1dCard2210 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

rip you tried

Scdouglas 2 points 9 months ago

Ya know, I don't ask for very much. All I want is to get high-ultra settings at 1080p but no, Ig I can't have that. Maybe next time though.

Wi1dCard2210 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

All you really need is an rx 480. For 230 bucks (gigabyte reference model) it's great value.

As far as CPUs go, idk much about amd.

¯_(ツ)_/¯

StarBlazer457 1 point 9 months ago

Hey I don't wanna here it. Lol. JK. I'm on a Intel Celeron N2830 CPU, try gaming on that. Lol

Scdouglas 2 points 9 months ago

I went down an average of 5 fps just thinking about it.

StarBlazer457 1 point 9 months ago

Yeah. talking about a solid 20 FPS on minecraft.

Telsah 1 point 9 months ago

I have a gt 320. Feel my pain.

StarBlazer457 1 point 9 months ago

That's prety old but better than what I got. Mine is the Intel Baytrail(Desktop) Graphics talking about a solid 1FPS on minecraft shaders, if I'm lucky I stay 1-5FPS or if I'm extremely lucky I can reach 8FPS.

Telsah 0 points 9 months ago

im sorry for you. I'm upgrading to a gtx 1060 6gb anyway heueheuheu

StarBlazer457 1 point 9 months ago

I would be I can't due to the fact that my computer is an All-in-One(AiO)

ShriyansM 1 point 8 months ago

I remember watching it and making a build like it haha.

SKill_2Kill 2 points 9 months ago

Why is this promotion not available in Germany?

JamesReeves 1 point 9 months ago

probably due to international costs. I could be wrong but I would put my money on cost or laws of other countries.

PCMasterRaceKappa 2 points 9 months ago

Where are the winners going to be announced? When this thread is updated?

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 6 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Hello, all as we near the end of the giveaway I would like to thank all of those that have entered as well as provided feedback. It is always great to work on giveaways with great partners like PC PartPicker. Beyond that what really makes it great is it an opportunity for an awesome community of users like yourself here at PC PartPicker as well as PCDIY enthusiasts as a whole to win some pretty sweet hardware while also providing feedback on what you want to see in our products.

Without the engagement, feedback, and passion that exists from PC builders like yourself ASUS would not be where it is now and we would not be able to do giveaways like this. Again thank you and to those that have entered best of luck!

If you have ideas for future giveaways or contests feel free to let me! Additionally, my inbox is always though if you have feedback on features, functionality or design!

JamesReeves 2 points 9 months ago

Thank you for the chance to enter!

jroc74 2 points 9 months ago

No, thank you for the opportunity to win some great prizes.

Most of the suggestions I had were put in ASUS products already, lol.

Sonuchi 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

Thanks for giving us these opportunities to win some great products! Can't wait to upgrade or have a new build!

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 6 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Thank you for being part of the PCDIY community! Best of luck.

Sonuchi 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

Didn't win, but still fun! I've been part of the PCDIY since 2001! I only have 2 personal DIY builds in my time but have over 10 different component builds (Over 20+ just putting a PC together) helping friends, family, and for work. Until next time!

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 6 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Awesome! Always great to have a passionate PCDIY builder like yourself part of the community. Thanks for participating.

Is it that surprising?

Sort of.

InvaderGir 1 point 9 months ago

It's a money problem.

LemonComputers 1 point 9 months ago

What are you using right now?

Wi1dCard2210 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

isn't the point of the giveaway to give you parts to build a pc?

I'd hang on to anything I won.

jadiusroy 1 point 10 months ago

Im 25 as of sept 27 2016.. Why is it not accepting my DOB? Am I too old ? :(

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

Check the date format you are entering -- note that it asks in DD/MM/YYYY format.

jadiusroy 1 point 10 months ago

Ah, thanks. I completely overlooked the dob format. Was typing mm/dd/yyyy lol

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

No problem -- good luck in the giveaway!

jroc74 1 point 10 months ago

Uh oh another giveaway. Time to win this!!!!

cmcc 1 point 10 months ago

Could you add links from the prize description text to the part pages?

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

Sure thing, I'll get that added.

cmcc 1 point 10 months ago

Thanks. That will help us more quickly setup a build that might use these parts.

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Updated. Took a little longer to update as I wanted to double check with ASUS on the exact version of the 1060/1070 being given away.

Good luck in the giveaway!

DPRutledge 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

I'd love to win this! It'd save me so much money on my build!

Yutang 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Sorry, this promotion is not available in your region

RIP

Sonuchi 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Sorry to hear that it's not available in other countries. Maybe PCPartPicker can accommodate a giveaway specifically for you in the future! Good luck to everyone who's entering. Including me! :)

Jaime.g 1 point 10 months ago

If I win I be able to fix up one of these two rigs I planned out a while ago, just edited the case and video card. 1. http://pcpartpicker.com/list/HYj74C 2. http://pcpartpicker.com/list/8Kj74C Now which one should I go with...

Jaime.g 1 point 10 months ago

I also didn't forget about the ssd , I don't know what I'll do with it.

[comment deleted]
Jaime.g 1 point 10 months ago

I also fixed it up to show the price of the build (if I won) to get an idea of how much it would cost to finish the build.

ewhac 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Sorry, but granting third-party "app" access to my Facebook account just to verify I visited a vendor's feed is absolutely not happening.

But, sure, I'll follow your YouTube channel; no problem there...

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

Gleam is a pretty well trusted app for giveaways. That said, I understand your hesitation, and am glad to hear you were able to enter through one of the alternate options. Good luck in the giveaway!

Faizan 1 point 9 months ago

Is there any way to un-link my Facebook or Twitch with Gleam?

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Sure, in Twitch go to your settings and look under "Connections". You can remove Gleam's connection from there. Similarly with Facebook, go to your settings and look for Gleam under "Apps".

Faizan 1 point 9 months ago

Thanks.

The.Geeked. 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Make a new fake page? But I agree, I don't even have a facebook.

Furloaf 1 point 9 months ago

Yeah, I was all hell no when I saw that

Other Gleam giveaways verified Facebook page visits without granting access

Faizan 1 point 9 months ago

I did... I may or may not be regretting it now.

JamesReeves 1 point 9 months ago

unless you have some crazy secret to hide, i think you and everyone else will be just fine.

Cam84 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

We got another one wearing a tin foil cap!

RhinoDM 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Pity it's another thing that's North America only, which is not the centre of the known universe, despite what some people think. (Nothing against you PCPP though) My GTX 1060 Dual is arriving tomorrow, and by the time the contest ends I will have already got some extentions from CableMod, so if I could enter and somehow won, it would be too late and rather frustating, so maybe its a good thing I can't enter...

P.S. Perhaps mention in the article it's US/Canada only?

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

I updated the article to mention the region requirement. We love when the contests we help our partners promote can be available world-wide, but it's just not always feasible given the legal requirements involved. Sorry!

Thefan630 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Not mad that the contest is region locked, but why do companis sometimes do this?

philip staff 10 Builds 4 points 9 months ago

Legal and cost reasons. Giving away stuff is surprisingly hard - because many people in the past have abused it to their benefit (i.e. scamming, not giving things away they promised, etc). Thus there are laws that protect people from malicious giveaways. For instance, if you run a giveaway meeting certain criteria even in Rhode Island, you have to register with the secretary of state. Now, multiply that to the unique legal requirements of every country, even every state/province within a country (hi Quebec!) and you've got a contest that takes hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars just to run.

The.Geeked. 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Shipping costs/paper work.

cmcc 1 point 10 months ago

Is anything being done to prevent multiple entries with dummy accounts? This contest has been open for a day and has 36,000+ entries already. Compare that with last spring's MSI giveaway of a full computer (no stats yet on the most recent one) which had a total of fewer than 3,000 entries over the whole span of the contest.

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 2 points 10 months ago

There are 84 possible ways to earn entries, not including the optional items which can be repeated daily. So that's not the number of people entering, but the number of actual entries overall (across all entrants).

cmcc 1 point 10 months ago

I'm not sure what that means. 84 ways? The contest rules say "Each individual may enter the Promotion only one time regardless of method of entry."

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 2 points 10 months ago

As it says on the giveaway page, there are 18 ways to enter and you can unlock 66 more entries. Per the rules, you are not allowed to create multiple entrant accounts, but the giveaway gives lots of optional entry opportunities for each entrant.

I'll have to check with ASUS to know for sure, but my guess is that the ever growing number at the top of the giveaway page is the total entries across all entrants, which on day one could be up to 84 per person.

cmcc 1 point 10 months ago

I'm not trying to be difficult, but I just have no idea what you're talking about. Neither the entry page (https://gleam.io/GI2ZB/asus-pc-partpicker-giveaway-asus-aura-rgb-motherboard-graphics-card-and-led-kit-) nor the popup with the Terms and Conditions from the bottom of that page mention anything about 18 or 66 entries. Are we looking at different pages?

cmcc 1 point 10 months ago

I see now, that comes up after you have already entered.

The terms and conditions should be updated to make that less confusing. Also, there are no dates on the official terms and conditions page, it just says XX. :)

iMario33_ 1 point 10 months ago

when u live n Venezuela and u just realise the giveaway is not worldwide T_T

Gooberdad 7 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

Cool another giveaway!

tsunamidude 1 point 9 months ago

Seems some of the entry options just don't work. Specifically the Thermaltake and cable mod facebook links.

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Did you allow the Gleam Facebook app permissions? I don't think those entries will work without it.

tsunamidude 1 point 9 months ago

I'm pretty sure I gave it permissions. The OCZ facebook works and when I click on the other two it just infinitely opens new windows that says

Facebook Authentication Failed Sorry, we could not authenticate with Facebook. We received the message:

invalid_credentials

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I'm not sure -- it seems odd that one works and the others don't, though. Have you tried anything like logging out and back into Facebook before trying again?

tsunamidude 1 point 9 months ago

Yes I just tried that and same thing happened.

tsunamidude 1 point 9 months ago

When I mouse over the OCZ name it displays facebook.com/OCZStorage/ while when I mouse over the other two no link appears. Maybe that has something to do with it.

wildcard1978 1 point 9 months ago

wont even let me enter wont take birthdate

Faizan 1 point 9 months ago

If you are not over the age of 18, you need your parents to sign you up. Make sure you are typing your birthday like this:

DD/MM/YYYY

16/03/1998

wildcard1978 1 point 9 months ago

I know it wasn't taking it an all I'm not a kid darn near 40

jsoutherland89 4 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Once again- y'all are awesome!

Dcpotter22 1 point 9 months ago

Dang, saw that there were already 60,000 entries already, then I scroll down and see 'do the above to unlock 66 more chances to win!'. So everyone has about a 100 entries, so most likely still have a 1 in 10,000 chance once all is said and done most likely. Acceptable and I'm on company time to go through all these things to get the entries.

Cam84 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I have no friends on my social media who would enter so I'll be missing out on some entries!!!

Dcpotter22 1 point 9 months ago

It'd only raise your chances by less than 1%, even just entering for 1 point/entry is practically the same as doing all 84 points once you get up to 1000s of different people entering. If it was just like 100 people entering, then yes doing all these things would significantly increase your chances. Its like the lottery, a person buying a single ticket has the same chance as someone buying 100,000 tickets in the grand scheme of things. At least these entries just cost time, rather than money.

Cam84 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

1% closer to winning is better than 1% closer to losing confusious say, you should give me a dollar a day cause it's less than 1% of your income and in the grand scheme of things it won't hurt you! :)

Smognoggler 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

There doing this as tip-of-the-hat-ish thing to components that come with led right? Soooo... why not add part restriction that says if a part has led and what type(rgb or single color)

PCMasterRaceKappa 1 point 9 months ago

If I win this i'll be the happiest human alive.

Cam84 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I wanna win so can sli an Evga with an asus! My eyes may burn out from all the rgb!

TitanHunter 1 point 9 months ago

My DOB wont work although Im 18... any reasons why?

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

double check the format you entered it with -- it asks for DD/MM/YYYY.

TitanHunter 1 point 9 months ago

I did and even tried using / as well

Tyreathian 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

I won't win but I guess I'll enter.

LemonComputers 1 point 9 months ago

Why enter if you're sure you won't win? There's always a slim chance.

Tyreathian 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Because if I win, I'll dump a gallon of milk on myself or something of that equivalent.

LemonComputers 1 point 9 months ago

But you were sure you won't win.

Tyreathian 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Chances are too small.

LemonComputers 1 point 9 months ago

So many giveaway contests lately...

...Just a quick question, aren't the quality of the CableMod custom sleeved cables mediocre? Or is that just a myth?

The.Geeked. 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

myth.. they wouldn't be in business if that was true since all they sale is cables.

LemonComputers 1 point 9 months ago

Then why is Logisys still in business, despite all of their products being junk?

The.Geeked. 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Lies, their Cold Cathode Kits/LED Strips are awesome. Cases and PSUs you win.

LemonComputers 1 point 9 months ago

I have heard about the Logisys LED strips not sucking, but their cases and PSUs definitely suck.

P.S. There are more polite ways to express your opinion without telling someone else that they're lying when they're not (even if they're wrong).

GospoGospo 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Some people say there are issues. I can't comment, but the real issue IMO is whether they break your PSU warranty. Seems to be a gray area.

[comment deleted]
Orbistic 1 point 9 months ago

I wish I could win this giveaway, or any PC component giveaway, because I'm currently using a ~$350 Pentium laptop which can't even fit my needs. I really want to build my first GOOD computer, but sadly I have so little chance to win among the thousands of people like me. Sooooooo...Good Luck to all in this giveaway.

MarkoPT 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

I was getting all excited until I read it's only for US and Canada :(

I did some math, and I estimate that 1000-1300 people have entered so far. Only 5 days in!

i cant follow on twitch and do the things on facebook... it doesent allow me to... i do the one on twitch and it checks off... then i try to do the ones on facebook and they work... but as soon as i get back to the webpage the twitch one is not entered please help

wscttwolfe 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Entry period ending October 13 is awkward ... because the Terms and Conditions say

"The drawing will take place on or about October 7th, 2016 in Fremont, California. The potential winners will be announced on or about October 8th 2016."

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

ASUS had originally planned to run the giveaway a bit earlier, but we hit a delay on our side. Thanks for the heads up, I'll let them know to see if they can fix it.

wscttwolfe 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Can terms and conditions be modified after people have already entered the contest under the original T&C's?

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

ASUS is running the giveaway, so I'm not sure how it works, but I let them know. Given the correct dates were given in the sections above it, I imagine they will be able to correct it to match.

JamesReeves 1 point 9 months ago

thank god for delays cause now i get a chance to enter lol

JamesReeves 1 point 9 months ago

That doesn't make it awkward lol Awkward would be me staring at you whilst petting my dog, listening to the cataracs and dev kill a track fist bumping with my alternate hand, and mouthing ILY. That, is awkward

ASUS pick me. I know nothing (Jon Snow), but dont let all of that fool you. Underneath all of this, Im a smasher waiting to smash, naw mean? Oh and did I mention: "I make homemade donuts. yep. Say it with me: "Homemade donuts". Let it just ring in your ear a bit. If that doesn't get my foot in the door then perhaps this will: I am friends with Christy Mack, yep the mack attack herself. Just HMU on twitter bros youll see whats up. So, obviously by now you understand that I am all that is man living a truly one of a kind life and the only thing that could make it any better would clearly be winning this contest...lol JK JK good luck to everyone :)

Always nice to see that the giveaway is US/Canada only... The countries where computers are actually "cheap" already... R.I.P. EU!

Good luck to the participants :).

MannyPCs 1 point 9 months ago

Computers in Canada are freakin expensive

TheMadd 1 point 9 months ago

I hope you win then :)

MannyPCs 1 point 9 months ago

I'm sure the reward is nice but I didn't take part in this giveaway :)

Wow, living in New Zealand makes me kinda sad now.

Sonuchi 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

16 HRS left! Where will we find out who wins?

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

We'll update the post above once ASUS lets us know. The giveaway page should also show the winner once they've been selected/confirmed. Good luck!

Sonuchi 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Thanks for the update!

Berfs1 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Can you guys please make a giveaway to people under 18? I want to enter, but, I cannot. I am 16, and I have a passion for computers, but cannot enter these giveaways. I am not speaking for myself, but for everyone who is under 18.

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 6 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Thanks for the feedback. This is something we have worked on in the past and it has to do with legal considerations. Rest assured we are looking at options for the future where entries are an option for those under the age of 18.

Berfs1 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Ok. Thank you for that response! BTW I LOVE ASUS!!! If only I had money, I would buy the GX800 when it comes out. I just cannot believe how it can have 384KHz audio!!! I make music, and that would DEFINATELY help alot.

jedi5200 1 point 8 months ago

hi, dude. I'm 14!

Berfs1 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

jedi5200 1 point 8 months ago

jedi5200 1 point 8 months ago

jedi5200 1 point 8 months ago

yeah, thanks. I'm 14...

TedTheOperator 1 point 9 months ago

You can have your parents or an older sibling enter for you.

Berfs1 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

They will not. They hate me.

MannyPCs 1 point 9 months ago

Hate you?

Berfs1 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Yeah, they think I am addicted to computers, yet I am not failing classes, and my mom hogs our (my family) most powerful laptop: i7-6700HQ, 16GB DDR4 RAM, GTX 965M; overclocked by me. She uses it for word editing. We have another laptop with an SSD and dual core i7-5500U, which is more than capable of doing that. I need to use the 6700HQ laptop, but she "needs" it. Even though I tell her "No you don't you do not need that much power for what you are doing". And she thinks I am addicted (because I have to wait longer cus the games take longer to load because the dual core laptop is a DUAL CORE CPU MOM). Anyways, there you go.

MannyPCs 2 points 9 months ago

Well that's not the description I expected. Thank you :)

That's a pretty beefy laptop and I see you did build a pc before with a 560 but that's old so I see why you want to upgrade.

I too understand the feeling of parents not knowing of computer knowledge ( not my dad he is good ) my mom knows little and sometimes gets annoying (nothing against her) when trying to talk sense to (my grandfather knows more about computers and windows and he is 81)

abethebabe 1 point 9 months ago

Where will the winner be announced

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

The giveaway page itself should also show the winner once they've been confirmed, but we'll also update the post above once we hear. Good luck!

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 6 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

It will be announced in the widget for the contest ( gleam IO landing page ) but the winners ( both 1st & 2nd ) will be provided to PCPP for posting.

Fireislife 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

How are winners usually contacted?

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 6 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Directly via email where they are supplied with an affidavit that must be returned. Once received we proceed with prize fulfillment. This only occurs after review has been completed of the actions completed by the selected winners.

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 6 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Hang in there! Still a bit more than an hour to go in the entry period. As for the winners, there's not an exact time for the announcement. It should be sometime tomorrow (Oct 14, 2016, PST) once ASUS can confirm the winners.

TedTheOperator 1 point 9 months ago

Sonuchi 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

There was unfortunately a bit of a delay in getting the verification emails sent out from ASUS. It should come late today or tomorrow. I'll follow up with you via PM.

BoyScout staff submitter 15 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

They already have been. Check the top of this post for the updates. You can also see them on the giveaway page.

TotalInsanity4 1 point 9 months ago

Might want to update the info that's on the front page, since the giveaway has ended

Awesomlego 1 point 9 months ago

Why would anybody choose to get the $165 mobo over the $300 one? Just sell it and get a z-170 one if you can't use it

Berfs1 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

I wanted to win. WELP. MOMMY!!!!!!! lulz jk they don't care anyways. Hey Asus, could you guys do a giveaway for your upcoming Asus GX800 w/ watercooler? I really want to win. PLZ let 16yr olds enter pleeze.

Sammy_Ming 1 point 9 months ago

jedi5200 1 point 8 months ago

SneakyFox 1 point 7 months ago

SneakyFox 1 point 7 months ago

gfunk62984 1 Build 0 points 9 months ago

Fingers crossed, could really use these top of the line parts to kick-start a build (but hey, who couldn't right). Good luck to all that entered, can't wait to see how these parts get used.

JamesReeves 0 points 9 months ago

I just keep coming back to this page. Probably like every 4 or 5 minutes just to see if anything has been updated. Anyone else? lol

AidenDakari 1 point 9 months ago

Guilty of the same.

reda948 -2 points 10 months ago

Richard912 10 points 10 months ago
