Good Luck everyone!

jipster69 4 Builds 15 points 4 months ago

Luck? I don't need luck...

just epicenes

* maniacal laughing *

wackazoa 1 point 4 months ago

Do past winners get to win again? I mean Jipster is pretty much the most popular guy here so if there is a peoples pick he is pretty much a shoe in for it again.

*Not that Im angry, far from it. Insanely jealous about the set ups dude is gonna have in the next 2 years based on giveaway winnings pretty much sums it up. :)

ziggurat666 4 Builds 9 points 4 months ago

Winners will be drawn at random from all valid entries.

Nope, full on luck

wackazoa 4 points 4 months ago

But Jipster could still win... right? So say he has great "luck" this year, I still would be jealous of him.

Gentleman00 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

I don't think so....

The part list must show as compatible on PCPartPicker Oyy, something's invalid...

jipster69 4 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Looks like luck was on your side...

Congrats on your win!

I have a part list and I'm submitting it soon. The part list is amazing... people will laugh... and cry... and just plain scratch their heads.

Potatoman01 3 points 3 months ago

That is best partlist I have ever seen. You may experience a slight bottleneck on that cpu but it will be virtually unnoticeable.

But srsly half the build is a monitor....

jipster69 4 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Thanks...

But srsly half the build is a monitor....

...and the other half is the power to push it a 100Hz 24-7 ;-)

it would be used with a 6700K (that I already have) BTW

ziggurat666 4 Builds 2 points 4 months ago

Put's together a $3000 Build...

for a monitor

lmao Bravo Jip

PacificNic 5 Builds 3 points 4 months ago

jipster69 4 Builds 2 points 4 months ago

+ 2 GTX 1080s and a case

zangadorian 2 points 3 months ago

I'm just loving the fact that your listed build spends $70 on fans, and also spends $70 for the cpu and hard drive combined... Thoroughly entertained.

jipster69 4 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Sadly... I did not win though :-(

ChocolateLovin69 1 point 4 months ago

so i unknowingly submitted what wasn't a permalink but just a url to a saved parts list that was later deleted. anything that can be done for an idiot like myself?

souleet MSI 1 point 4 months ago

Try to reenter again?

ChocolateLovin69 1 point 4 months ago

only one entry per account as you must know. and making a second account for a giveaway feels dirty plus might it have other implications. i tried messaging their fb page but they said nothing could be done once i submitted something even if it was a flub. on the bright side this issue lead me to discover the other daily contests you guys are having through out the next two weeks. great stuff that you guys are so giving this season!

souleet MSI 2 points 4 months ago

We will give out more stuff in 2017! Make sure you stay connected to our Facebook.

ChocolateLovin69 1 point 4 months ago

lol will do. thanks for trying to help and for having all these awesome contests!

Can we add two CPU coolers by any chance (There isn't a limit number on the coolers but I'm just checking :D)

Bloodkiller117 1 point 3 months ago

So its completely random not based on what kind of build or what it would look like

jsmith72437 1 point 3 months ago

Thanks!!! I hope luck is in my favor!!!!

Hey MSI dude, how about ODD? and Speakers. How about HUE+

No odd and no speakers.

Thanks to this amazing site and Micro Star International for this unreal gift! When I got that e-mail I jumped clean out of my chair in excitement.

Gross! Someone chose two RX480's over a GTX 1080. What a shame! Waste of giveaway money. I want a refund.

Murphdog95 2 points 3 months ago

Right? the only dude (in my opinion of course, no hate intended to the winners) that got it right was the one that did an x99 build

teambronze5 1 point 3 months ago

I was so sad. I'm glad others agree! I honestly thought this would generate a lot of hate haha

AceKill26 1 point 3 months ago

My build is exactly asus and corsair except for the case!

Murphdog95 1 point 3 months ago

With any luck, and a good bit of funding, my future build will be too. I am a gaming enthusiast on the budget of a homeless man xD

AceKill26 1 point 3 months ago

Yeah most of all saving money, specially if you live in a country in wich every single pc component is double the price and import is not an option since its like +$200 for shipping... Argentina (-_-)

AceKill26 1 point 3 months ago

or even +$700 depending on the dimensions of the "box", "boxes"...

I went ahead with an ITX build. Am I the only one with ITX? https://pcpartpicker.com/list/2FtzXH

Doplegamer 2 points 4 months ago

Here is my try, yes i know a 6950x is a bit much, there are more than a few reasons for it.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Y7rNYr

Chuck38 2 Builds 2 points 4 months ago

Reasons. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Because I can, damnit!

Doplegamer 1 point 4 months ago

Reason 1: Man does my house need a new server computer, these old vishera chips are HOT.

Reason 2: Video Editing off of multiple sources and from multiple computers.

Reason 3: Mild gaming on two monitors in separate rooms while recording and editing.

Reason 4: Low Temperatures for multiple massive actions with a(n) quiet air cooler.

Reason 5:(i have never counted this high before.) Its replacing an old editing rig in size, weight and appearance, while still remaining quiet powerful at multitasking.

Even if it wont always be editing video. I need a pc that can work over a server for a small to medium family, and crush these things without relying on a xeon, or similar processor.

Arul 2 points 4 months ago

This is awesome, good luck to everyone!

As a new PC enthusiast, this would be an absolute dream. I actually just ordered all new parts for my first build (based on the entry level build guide), but this would be a complete game changer. Shout out to MSI for running this giveaway, they are awesome. Good luck to all participants!

As soon as we know.. It takes a bit of time for MSI to verify then confirm the winners before we can announce them.

SK6Blue 2 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Im curious, since its been said our contest hosts can see(and I'd assume, will use) the price history graph to confirm builds were less than $3000 when submitted. when I look at the graph of a build that was under 3000 but now above it looks like it has never been below 3000(was about $10 under when submitted).... currently sitting at $3015 but looks like $3300, and doesn't give hover over prices and dates(like the graphs for the individual items do). Is this skewed graph image unique to my browser settings or is it what everyone sees.... Seems to me, unless they recorded the price when it was submitted(which would leave no need to mention the price history graph) they would have to go to the price history of each item in the build and check that graph for the submission date then add up the total. Huge props to MSI if they are going thru all that(or have a script that does, or have a way I dont know of). but anyway, after looking at a few of the part list graphs, it makes me hope people that made builds near the threshold aren't being unintentionally brushed aside. makes me hope its just my browser setting that are throwing of the graphs for me.

Mayank0809 2 points 3 months ago

I too, seem to have the same problem. My graph was waay above $3000 even though the price was more like $2950.

Jerome54 2 points 3 months ago

I think that the price shown is without discounts and rebates.

TheOfficialCzex 3 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

I'm sorry if this makes me sound salty, but can we make the future giveaways require at least 3-6 months of forum activity in order for someone to be considered eligible? It frustrates me to see random people happen upon the announcement and promptly create an account just to win. Two of the winners don't even have ten posts between them.

BoyScout staff submitter 9 Builds 7 points 3 months ago

While I understand your sentiment (and putting aside the possible legal issues with your suggestion), a major point of working with partners to put these promotions together is to bring new users to the site as well as our content channels (ie, YouTube/Twitch). While we love that it creates an opportunity for our existing users to possibly win some cool stuff, it would be self-defeating as a promotional effort to limit it to preexisting users.

TheOfficialCzex 3 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Understood.

Jerome54 4 points 3 months ago

Well that wouldn't be fair at all.
And for one simple reason: just because you don't have an account doesn't mean that you've never visited PCPP before.

In fact, I was checking PCPP every single day for almost 6 months before creating my on account.
And even then, I didn't participate in the community at all. I only created part lists...

So yes, it does seems unfair at first because these "profiles" are new and never collaborated with the community.
But would you deny a prize to a lottery winner that won the first time he/she played? ;-)

jroc74 2 points 3 months ago

Yup, this is exactly what I did. I lurked for the longest, read forums posts, etc. Only that that really made me join was saving part lists and I wanted to leave a comment on a thread.

kuiama2015 2 points 3 months ago

Agree with you. This is the fist time I entered a contest. Read the posts and liked the idea of saving builds.

We all should be glad that MSI did this give-a-ways and the thrill of trying to put a system together to meet a requirement.

Hope MSI or other suppilers do similar ones in the future were there are limits/goals/requiremnts. To me it was fun trying to peice togther a system with requirements/limits and seeing how everyone else was trying to meet them.

Jerome54 1 point 3 months ago

Yes, it was a lot of fun!!

There were similar giweaways before, but it was before the GTX1080 era... ;-)
It was fun too though! :-D

Cam84 2 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Ya I lurked awhile before making an account. This site got me hungry to get back into the game after letting my 2011 Build collect dust! It's other reason is to grow this community with new accounts and users. I understand the salty behind seeing a brand new account win and most of it from the saltiness is I wasn't sure if their process weeded out the people making multi entries, but that was explained and cleared up And we now have 3 new pc master race users!

Thank you MSI and PCPP!

Does the note about the M.2 slot sharing bandwidth with the SATA Express port count as an Incompatibility and therefore an invalid entry?

"The part list must show as compatible on PCPartPicker."

Does this mean that there must be no Compatibility notes? Looking at my build I see some notes about possible BIOS refresh needed and M.2 bandwidth. Is that ok?

So i have a question.

It says The part list must show as compatible on PCPartPicker in the giveaway.

Will Compatibility Check: See notes below. Some Intel X99 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Broadwell-E CPUs. also be accepted?

Will my build still be qualified if it says this: "Some Intel X99 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Broadwell-E CPUs"?

BoyScout staff submitter 9 Builds 3 points 4 months ago

Informational notes like that are fine -- just not compatibility warnings/errors.

Tamriel_Bound 2 points 4 months ago

Yeah, thats completely fine. As long as it doesnt say that parts are 'incompatible'.

macetotheface 1 point 3 months ago

Probably whatever your state charges (if applicable)...outside of that, play it safe and give yourself some breathing room.

156 1 point 3 months ago

Well I asked Boyscout and he told me this:

You can just leave the default value. There's nothing in the rules specifying a particular rate, just that the total price at the bottom of the system page (after taxes, shipping, rebates etc) be the value that is under $3000 USD.

edit: i accidentally deleted the build altogether like a complete ******* idiot. please tell me theres something i can do. the site says ive used my only entry

tadashi 1 point 4 months ago

It's a permalink, they will still be able to see the original build you provided. I think...

BoyScout staff submitter 9 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

Changing components once you submitted the permalink doesn't change anything on the build you submitted and it cannot be deleted. Only "Saved Builds" in your profile can be changed or edited. Your original submission should be fine, and editing your System Build doesn't change it.

If you are still using the same PC you originally created the build with and have not logged out, you can get back to your permalink by checking your part list History (upper right, next to "Save As" on the System Build page).

ChocolateLovin69 1 point 4 months ago

good stuff, thank you very much for this clarification. thought i was really boned for a second there

ChocolateLovin69 1 point 4 months ago

actually what i might have sent them was not a permalink but simply a url of the saved parts list. mostly because i had no clue how to permalink and didn't know what it was until this point :/

I've submitted my build with complete with prices. now upon checking, seems my mouse is missing a price and currently out of stock. :(

will that be still counted as valid entry?

BoyScout staff submitter 9 Builds 2 points 4 months ago

That's fine. If it was available when submitted, chances are it will be available again at the end of the giveaway. But if a component is unavailable when the giveaway period ends, MSI may work with the winner to select a comparable alternative.

If you can, then why not?I think, you your build can cost up to 3000dollars.

jtrier1 1 point 4 months ago

Because I don't need to. This rig will do whatever I need it to do without any problems.

Well my dreams may already be dashed. My submission somehow got deleted the other night from my saved parts list. Contacted mods and contest holders and both said there wasn't anything they could do. I submitted another list, but I doubt it will do any good.

eopest 7 Builds 2 points 4 months ago

I didn't realize this board had an M.2 slot! That 8350 will still bottleneck the two RX 480s. If Zen wasn't supposed to be coming out, I might even save up money to build your config.

Sonuchi 1 point 3 months ago

It does! It's one of MSI's latest ones that just came out in Oct/Nov. I've been keeping my eye on it since it does the RGB LED lights and all.

Also, yeah. I figured bottlenecking would happen, but I'm likely going to use one of the RX 480s somewhere else if I need to.

Lastly, thanks! I'm happy to hear that someone would want to build a rig off of my configuration. This one here is off a config build similar to this but with one 480. It's also supposed to have a 500 GB SSD but I got it during black Friday, so I removed it from my build to get a better calculation.

There are three boxes on my shelves right now: a K9N SLI Platinum, a 970A-G46, and a K9N6PGM2-V2. Guess what they all have in common: that's right, they're all MSI boards I've built with over the years. The board in the box I'm using to write this is a 970 GAMING. But if I have to create a Facebook login and "like" MSI to enter, then well, I concede the contest to the rest of you (or jipster69, whoever has the best shot). I have no plans to ever give away my privacy to Zuckerberg & Cronies to sell as they see fit. Good luck you guys (and gals), I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Mabye you could try liquid cooling instead of the 212 evo. Mabye one like this: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Dz648d/deepcool-captain-240ex-white-1530-cfm-liquid-cpu-cooler-captain-240ex-white

Renfist 1 point 4 months ago

I honestly thought about liquid cooling but inexperience told me to take the safe route. I would hate to fry that beautiful set up. This would be my first true build from scratch. I've replaced laptop monitors, processors etc.. yet never had anything liquid cooled. Spent most of my life staring at 15 fps till my son sent me this tower that sits next to me. Bought me an a8 7600 with an r7 and boy did my eye's open when I seen WoW running at 40fps lol. Two months later legion launched and I wished I had spent the extra money for something a little stronger. It still does some light gaming but many of the titles I own it doesn't play without me pulling my hair out lol.

Good point. Guess I didn't look deeper into the cooling that one looks pretty good. Thanks for the advice

This was my build, i created it yesterday, so this is why its price is more than 3k dollars.

aether_tech 3 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

Well, I hope I win. I've been hard-pressed on my budget to upgrade to the much needed i7 to play some games with much higher cpu demand than an i5 can handle easily.

also, then I won't have to pay $100 to get windowed side-panel for my R5 shipped in from the UK (or buy a brand new R5 with window for the same!)

I do like MSI, I've gotten mostly MSI motherboards and graphics cards for the last decade or so. Mushkin is my RAM, MSI is my motherboards and graphics, WD/OCZ/Samsung for my drives, and EVGA for my power supplies!

Also, a big compliment to MSI's warranty and customer service regarding it.

I chose to go with the as-much-black-as-possible theme. Sadly, the GPU and the SSDs have a bit of color on them...but oh well. I'm not looking for a monitor, since I just upgraded mine to a good 1440p 144hz a few months ago, but my computer is feeling some age as I try to play cpu intensive games like space engineers running several hundred thousand blocks...

I wanted to go as overkill as possible with an x99 chipset, while maintaining a subtle black/white color scheme that will be accented with RGB.

Requirements:

-x99 chipset with best bang/buck (6850K fit the bill nicely)

-Be as pretty as possible - S340 ELITE, X62 Kraken, MSI Gaming PRO Carbon mobo, 1080 MSI armor edition to match the scheme, 8x RAM slots filled with white LED's

-Compliment what I currently own - I only have 500GB storage because I currently own outside storage that would supplement it nicely. I also have peripherals that would support this build's capabilities in full, so I did not include those.

  • Be the baddest, raddest performance that I could get while staying in budget.

Let me know what you think, I hope you like it!

Why a 1080p moniter only...For that much power 1440 or 4k would be better.Cause i feel its way too overkill for 1080p gaming...well depends on the games and the actual purpose i suppose

No, if it was available when you submitted the part list, you are fine. However, if it doesn't have any availability, they may have to work out a substitute/alternative.

This is my dream build. I don't have much space so that's why the Mini-ITX Build and 24" Monitor. But the butter-smooth 144Hz refresh rate and G-Sync is what matters to me, more so than mere resolution. 60Hz is painful! lol.

This piece of hardware can pretty serve my needs when it comes to editing videos and Gaming

KuyaL18 1 point 4 months ago

My problem is that it says "Total part list price for your entry must not exceed $3000 after shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts."

I'm from the Philippines, so shipping and tax will be off the roof, so i budgeted for less than $2500 (I tried doing calculations on tax, it still goes over 3k after)

So, if by any chance I win the random pick, will i still be disqualified even if I have no control on my country's policy?

BoyScout staff submitter 9 Builds 2 points 4 months ago

That phrasing is to match the "total" at the bottom of the System Build page, not to make you overthink calculations. Just build your part list using the US version of the site and budget according to what it reports and you should be fine.

KuyaL18 1 point 4 months ago

Thanks!

Hope I win as planning to join the pcmaster race. Love Msi mobos and GPUs. Is my build decent? Pls comment

The RAM you have here is DDR4-3200. The i5-6600K supports up to 64GB of DDR4-2133.
So you could have saved a bit of money here (because DDR4-3200 RAM would not be used at its max frequency anyway).

Also why 2 1070sin SLI with a 1080p monitor? Any specific reason?
I'd recommend a 1440p monitor instead.
You could have gone this route :

RebelAndroid 1 point 4 months ago

That is a lot of SSDs.

Jerome54 1 point 4 months ago

You can never have too much SSDs... ;-)
Have a look at my entry for example! (overkill HTPC) :-D

It always depends on your needs. And if you don't use it you can always repurpose it in a laptop or as external storage.

Manu_Tech 1 point 4 months ago

as long as your mobo supports a certain ram speed the cpu doesn't matter most of the time, just set the ram to XMP in the bios

Jerome54 1 point 4 months ago

You're right! My mistake... :-)
Thanks for correcting!

Joachimdovituan 1 point 4 months ago

Ok thanks for the advice as I am new at pc building thks for the tip on the ram and I already have a 1440p monitor which I am using for other uses.

RebelAndroid 1 point 4 months ago

Is there a reason for the three SSDs, because if not you might want to take out one of the 750GB SSDs.

Sdvf 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

They may want the m.2 as a boot drive and the 750gb ones in a raid array

RebelAndroid 1 point 4 months ago

Oh didn't think about raid.

Jerome54 1 point 4 months ago

GTX1080 with a 1080p monitor?
IMO you should at least go with 1440p (if not 4K) with that GPU! ;-) :-)

EnerMax 1 point 4 months ago

yes

oldnotweak 1 point 4 months ago

this would be a dream to win. my pc is currently fairly old and weak. i know how to squeeze a system for every frame of performance though.

After hours of research the past 3 days. I finally finished my portable dream build list. I tried to make it as unique (and practical to myself) as possible with matching color scheme. I also included a mouse, keyboard and headphones because it will be my first PC. I hope the miracle happens! =)

Anyway thanks for the generous giveaway and Merry Christmas to everyone!

As long as I don't change the parts list, then the submitted permalink will still work? The permalink seemed to change when I made changes to my list before submitting. I also saved the list, but the screenshot in the rules showed the current parts list page, so I stuck with that.

BoyScout staff submitter 9 Builds 2 points 4 months ago

Any further changes you make to your System Build view won't change the part list you submitted. That's why we use the permalink for the entry. It will always link back to the part list as it was when you submitted it (though with updated pricing/availability).
