Get Your Own AMD TWKR CPU With Our LR and Twitter Contest!

Image

AMD created a small number of limited edition “TWKR” processors expressly for the extreme overclocking community in appreciation for their record performance feats with Dragon platform technology and AMD Phenom II processors. These processors are designed to reach the utmost performance barriers of the AMD Phenom II processor and operate beyond the specifications of typical production level processors. As speculated, it’s a high current chip that can take the extreme stresses of Liquid Nitrogen overclocking. Our testing of the TWKR showed that we could reach ~6.6GHz on Liquid Nitrogen. It would be a shame if only the top overclockers and media would be able to use these, so we have teamed up with AMD to give away one of these overclocking monsters. With high end air or water cooling you should be able to take a TWKR processor up to 4.0-4.1GHz with ease and for those that want to try out dry ice, liquid nitrogen, or liquid helium you are looking at 5GHz - 7GHz depending on your pot and cooling method. These processors are monsters and have been selected and binned as being the best of the best.

Enough talk! Let's get to the rules. They are fairly simple.

1) Follow Legit Reviews on twitter @ http://www.twitter.com/legitreviews

2) The contest will be held sometime on July 7th, 2009. We will be tweeting one question. The first person to answer the question correctly via a reply will win. If for some a number of people answer at exactly the same time and we cannot determine from Twitter who actually answered first, the name will be randomly chosen from those who tie for first place. To be able to win the processor you MUST be 1) following us on Twitter @ http://www.twitter.com/legitreviews, and 2) RT (retweet) our original contest status update for the contest. You must do this BEFORE July 7th to be eligible for the drawing.

3) Win and we’ll send the CPU to you for free after you sign a waiver releasing BOTH AMD and Legit Reviews from any damage this chip may cause! Legit Reviews will be picking up the shipping bill if you live in North America, but if you live any other place you are responsible for all shipping charges. We will send the processor to you with the customs label saying that it is a gift with a value of $0 since it is not for resale. If you live in a country with taxes and tariffs on incoming gifts you will be responsible for paying these. If it gets lost or damaged during mailing please understand that it can't be RMA’d, so no trade-ins or swap-outs are available.

We'd like to thank AMD for making this contest happen and we'd really like to thank our readers for supporting us since 2002. Less than 100 of these processors have been made, so this is truly a unique opportunity that we have here today for one of our lucky readers and twitter followers.

Good luck to everyone!

Heh I'd love to try and win this but the news of this contest is spreading like wildfire so the chances of winning are actually very slim. Plus I don't tinker with LN2 and Dry Ice. I'm too young and too inexperienced to try that, let alone don't have the funds.

Good luck to those who are participating in the contest =)

Twitter name is my username - but I talk a LOT - lol - cigars, computers, when I am going to take a shower..hahahaaha so you might not want to follow me :)

Mike

Can this be run with regular water cooling or air cooling at higher performance marks? If I am not mistaken, you cant keep liquid nitrogen on the chip for any length of time..??

Figured others would be curious about this as well ;)
