The folks over at FiringSquad have teamed up with AMD, GIGABYTE, and OCZ to host the "Liquid Nitrogen Not Required" Overclocking contest.
Unlike most overclocking contests, this time around you aren't just shooting for the highest stable speed with the most intricit cooling solutions ever to be created. First you have to demonstrate your knowledge of overclocking before you can make it to the actual overclocking.
AMD wants you to write a "How to Overclock Guide," GIGABYTE wants to know "What is so cool about GIGABYTE's Ultra-Durable 3 technology," and finally OCZ wants to know just what is the "funniest damn thing you can think of doing with the OCZ name." Top five winners will be sent hardware and be given 10 days to build and tweak their systems and then have about 15 days to overclock the hell out of it.
FiringSquad has $2500 cash up for the top three contestants so those wanting to win should head over here. Just follow the directions and prove your worth to win some sweet swag.
