Entered once again.

Perhaps I could ask that nobody else enters these to help my chances along a little bit?

I have a really nice hacksaw at home. If I win I'll cut the board in half and I'll even let you choose your half. If you win I'll post the saw with a return envelope, and you can ship me the half you don't want plus my saw.

Fair?

I haven't owned a desktop Intel system since I think 2003. In some ways I'd prefer a free CPU over a motherboard since Intel is so expensive, but, this is a pretty nice board and even an overclocked i5 would still be faster and more power efficient than my current system (FX-6300 at 4.4GHz). My system is arguably close to retirement, so I think this would be a nice step up.

Sounds good to me. If you want opposing corners, we could cut it into quarters if you like?

An i7 4770K is almost the same value as the entirety of your current system. While I don't disagree that you would want something more modern, I'm not sure how you'll be able to afford to take advantage of this motherboard. It'll cost you at the very least $400 to put some good use to this board. With that money, you can build a complete AMD A10 system that is better than your current one (at least if you use the same tower, storage, and PSU).

BTW, I think your system is fine. Old isn't always bad. I'm not sure what you do but I figure a GPU upgrade and an overclock might be all you need to play modern games at medium-high settings.

I'd be happy to win anything. Also, just because I might win a high end prize such as this, doesn't mean I can't find a way for it to benefit me. As for my current system, trust me it is overclocked to it's maximum safe limits. Any higher and I've had random errors and issues with either CPU or GPU. I am hoping to build a completely new system in the new year though, probably based around an mATX as I don't trust the sound available with a Mini-ITX build, no matter how much I would like a system that small.

Guys - I was informed by Bit-Tech that I was the winner of this motherboard waaaay back in 2013, despite an exchange of emails to Bit-Tech and (so I am informed) from BitTech to YOYOTECH, there's still no sign of my prize.

Please advise.
