Timber Case Kickstarter Launch Giveaway

Update - Winners Picked!

Today I launched the Timber Case on Kickstarter! No matter how it plays out, I wanted to thank PCMR. Without the positive feedback I received from PCMR over the last few months, I would not have finished this project.

So checkout the Timber Case Kickstarter page (entirely optional) and enter to win some awesome hardware.

 

 

If you want updates on how the Kickstarter is going or future Timber Case developments, on Twitter or Instagram.

What type of hardware are you giving away?

I'm giving away four motherboard/ram/CPU/cooler combos

Some of you asked about these motherboards in my previous posts. They were the basis of a virtual machine based gaming platform that I was investigating. Unfortunately it didn't work out, so I'm giving away the hardware.

  • Supermicro X8DTG-QF. Dual Socket 1366. 4 PCI-E 2.0 x16 slots (Fits 4x dual-slot GPUs)
  • 48GB, DDR3 1333MHz ECC Memory
  • 2x Xeon E5530 (This CPU sucks but keep reading)
  • 2x CPU coolers & fans
 

 

These boards are older but hold up really well. I use one of these as my main content creation machine and day-time gaming box. (Total 12 cores/24 threads @ 3.6Ghz [Xeon X5690], 48GB, GTX 1070)

  • Powered with a standard ATX PSU Must have CPU2 8-pin power. I use an EVGA SuperNOVA 750 B2. You can get one for under 60 dollars on EVGA B-stock or ~$80 new.
  • It can boot from a PCI-E NVMe SSD.
  • You can upgrade the CPU's for dirt cheap. X5670 6-Core 2.93Ghz go for around $30 each on ebay.
  • Runs Windows 10 with no issues

How do I enter and what are the rules?

Just post a top-level comment on the PCMR post that brought you to this page. Your Reddit account must be at least a month old. US and Canada only (sorry it's really expensive to ship overseas). Giveaway ends when the Reddit post is 48 hours old. I will randomly pick 4 winners with a python script.

 

 

 

How do I know if I won?

I'll post the winning users on the PCMR sub and I'll message you for your address. There will be no cost for shipping. Thanks again to the entire PCMR community.
