    I think this will be more of a cheap marketing research ;)

    Im tired of being forced to use Facebook for contests and other stuff, I am officially boycotting Facebook and its anti-privacy policy and anyone business that uses it for contests. If you all dont like someone watching over your shoulder at everything you do, then stop using facebook.
    I like NZXT but their use of facebook only contests is bullsh*t

    Since the United States citizens are excluded, along with any other citizen of Earth, except the United Kingdom, then the least NZXT could do is to only sell their products to U.K. citizens.
    If the rest of this planet isn't good enough to enter their contest then we certainly aren't up to snuff when it comes to purchasing their wares.
    I just LOVE the way these types of igmo's, including U.S and other countries sites, enjoy shooting themselves in their own wallets! If a company wants to be part of the Global Economy then there should be no prejudism in excluding any single person on Earth from their promotions.

    uugh didn't see the only UK residents thing until after I entered =/ oh well. And for all you people complaining about the region limitation I live in Hawaii. Even if the competition said it was open to the US there's a good chance that it would only be open to those in the continental US. Region specificity also gives those who can enter a better chance to win. If it were completely open to the world and they gave away *one* first place and *one* second place prize the chances of each entrant winning would plummet to near 0. As it is even with just the UK the chances of winning are near 0 for each entrant. You wouldn't want it to be any worse if you were one of those who could enter. Also remember this is a UK forum so it's obvious that stuff would be more UK centric.

    Same here.
    I was so happy it wasn't a Facebook/Twitter only competition, I didn't see that.


    On th page of the competition it doesn't say it's UK only, but that's because the best thing is hidden here though: Terms and conditions
    "Competitions open to UK residents only, unless otherwise stated." ;)

    Out of the goodness of it's heart NZXT has updated this competition so that it's now enterrable by bit-tech readers from UK, Europe and USA and Canada.

    Enjoy and good luck.

    You shouldn't have to, unless the address you entered was outside the UK, but TBH I don't know for sure.

    Who cares? It will be a fraction of the original price, and NZXT makes some really good stuff! :)
    If the shipping price, if any, proves to be too much for you, you can always forfeit/decline the reward and it will be offered to someone else.
