The wrong link is posted in the article. It links to the February competition.

The "explain why" boxes select themselves when you select them to type in your reasons.

This means that you can either have an explaination, OR an yes / no answer, but not both?

noticed that as well... i'm sure people can figure it out though...

I think the idea is that there won't be any comments if the answer is Yes. So the "No" is implied if there's a comment

Unless the survey is changed, I suggust selecting the third option and stating your answer along with an explanation?

EDIT: I suppose he's ^ more correct than me :p

Actually, that's perfect. Say "No, because blah blah" - that would be ideal.

The ram from first place, is it available in DDR2 667MHz SODIMM (iMac compatible)?

Sorry if I've missed it, but will our details be passed on anywhere with this one? Seems like a cool thing, but if it's gonna net me some email from people offering some sevice or whatever then I'll pass.

im sorry for being stupid, but how exactly do I enter this contest :?

Click the link in the first post of this thread, then click the "Click Here To Enter" picture. If you've got popups totaly disallowed it might not open.

I'm attempting to find out. I would very much hope not as it was not mentioned at any point.

If you have overly aggressive ad-blockers in place, they might be filtering the link (which is programmed to count how many people enter). Some might say that's "unlucky" - others might say that not being able to enter is punishment for blocking the ads that help pay to keep bit-tech what it is today: kick-ass and free for everyone.

Can I suggest adding www.bit-tech.net to your whitelist (for anyone who insists on blocking ads in general)

I have had it confirmed that the only email contact you will receive is to let you know if you have won, and possibly one email to everyone who did not win (just so they know). Nobody will be added to a mailing list. No spam will be sent. Just as it should be :D

Pope dude, it's not just ad-blocking that does this. Many browsers and plugins have pop-up blockers that don't impact upon advertising at all. I'm on Opera and it'll block popups if it thinks I don't want 'em, wasn't an issue for me on that site, but sometimes I have to enable popups on a particular site. Doesn't mean the stuff is ad-blocking though :)

Speccy - yes, you're right but there's more depth to it that you don't know about. The bit you're talking about is any old link which target=_blank to open the link in a new window (rather than bulldoze over the content you're reading). This isn't a "pop-up" but sometimes browsers get it wrong and prevent it. bit-tech doesn't do any pop-up / pop-under advertising, so you can go ahead and allow it without any worries.

The bit I was talking about is the technique I have employed to count the number of clicks on that link. As a result, it might look like a "banner" to an ad-blocker, which might mean it gets stripped out and the reader will be left with no way to enter the prize draw. The solution, of course, is to not block banners on bit-tech.net, which is a good idea anyway.

Indeed, I was quite confused about that. They had a name of a brand I've never heard off(and I've spent a fair ammount of time learning about RAM over the years) yet they totaly missed G.Skill, one of the most important manufactures of performance ram out there. I found it highly odd.

Winners will be picked at random from the qualifying submissions.
So... what exactly is a qualifying submission?

survay dosn't rearly cover me... I like overclocking but am a true hardware enthusiast so I know "performance" and "gamer" memory is not value for money when my hardware is running at very very very tight timings at the max fsb my cpu will do at the current voltage it's at.

However I would conser "performance" memory if I had a cpu that could operate at very high bus speeds.

That was the simplets survey I've done in a while;

Have you ever bought performance memory? No, please goto end of survey :p

Answer the questions honestly and enter your email address. Once. Duplicate entries will result in disqualification. That's it :)

I'd also like to complain about the lack of a G.Skill option. I paid a lot of money for that. I guess I'll just have to choose OCZ which I had before. Wasn't nearly as good as my lovely 2GBHZ :(
Skill3d 5th August 2006, 12:50 Quote
hmz I use G.skill all the way but theres no option for it =/ weird....
and they have super patriot? never heard of it anyway perhaps something with company or share stuff
