    Exclamation Win a YEARS SUBSCRIPTION to Custom PC

    Right good people, you Lucky Hexus-ites, we are now going to make someone’s day

    Because, in association with Custom PC, we are going to be giving away 1 years FREE Subscription to CUSTOM PC in this most funky Techno Competition.

    Are you ready to get your brain fried with technical data? Custom PC is the magazine for you then, because it is crammed with the stuff you need to know. What's the fastest, what’s the coolest, what moves the quickest, and how do they all compare? It’s what we all LURVE to know about

    And its gonna be delivered to your door, FREE, for a YEAR

    SO WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL? HOW ARE YOU GONNA RUN AWAY WITH THE PRIZE?

    11 questions: And when you know the answers, PM them to me….ta daa!

    Ready? Cool….lets do it.

    A: This month, Ryszard reviewed an MSI FX5600, and the Benchmark results were a little skewed in places, due to a set of Detonator drivers. What version were they?

    B: What are the serial/part numbers on the OCZ EL DDR PC4000 chips that Tarinder found, under the Copper Heatspreaders, in September?

    C: What Case (make and model) did Craig recently discover had a spring loaded door that hides the front expansion ports?

    D: Jo Shields reviewed some XA3051’s, earlier this year. He found them ace but also lacking for gaming. How did he sum up the Build Quality?

    E: When Craig reviewed the Vantec NXP-201-SL for us, how much did it weigh?

    F: Ryszard reviewed a Leadtek K7NCR18D Pro II Deluxe Limited, this summer. What “System Performance” setting was chosen in the screen shot? (its in red )

    G: What are the numbers on the ram chips, on the Crucial 9800 Pro that Tarinder played with, on the last day of July? All of them please .

    H: Tarinder reviewed a Springdale mobo on July 3rd. What colour are the Rounded EIDE cables provided?

    J: Once upon a time, Hexus overclocked a Celeron 2 ! Long ago, in the mists of time In Q3 Arena, set to 32bit, at 1280x1024, what did this Herculean beast of a chip push the Frames Per Second to?

    K: Recently, Tarinder had some Mushkin memory, rated at PC3500 speeds. What was his “bottom line”?

    Now, the last one, is the hardest…….as with ALL proper compos, we want a “phrase that pays”

    In less than 20 words, WHY should we, the Powers That Be, call our mates at Custom PC and get them to send you their top class magazine, every month, for a year?

    You get the idea…..20 words…… “I should get it cos…..” but make it funny….Mods will be heavily involved in THAT bit of judging

    Good luck people. It’s been……emotional


    EDITORS NASTY BIT
    Play fair and get your answers in quick, those cheating people at CPC are not allowed to enter, and yes Gareth that means YOU......
