If you've read our Core i7 3960X Review, you'll know that Intel's Sandy Bridge E platform can be incredibly fast. If you want to own a 3960X system without the pesky details of actually paying for the machine, Intel is kicking off a contest today where you can enter to win such a thing (and more). 

Every week for the next four weeks Intel will be giving away something SNB-E related. Each giveaway period starts at 9AM PT and ends at 5PM PT, 7 days later. The first giveaway begins today.

This week Intel is giving away a Core i7 3930K with a DX79SI motherboard (the same board we used in our SNB-E CPU review). Next week it'll be a 3960X with the DX79SI. The following week it'll be a 3960X, DX79SI, Intel RTS2011LC cooler and Intel SSD 510. And the grand prize will be a hand selected build around the 3960X from Newegg.

For full contest rules and entry information head on over to Intel's Facebook page. The official messaging from Intel is below. Good luck!

    I never win anything, but at least I have the first comment....

    May be US only. When I go to the source link, I get no rules or contest entry details.
  • mhangan - Monday, November 14, 2011 - link

    The Giveaway page from Facebook doesn't seem to redirect properly.
    I hope the giveaway isn't US only.
    I've already been mad at Intel for launching socket 1155 a few months after I bought a 1156 based system.

    As always, it's probably US only.
    And Facebook only.. WT?!
  • Vepsa - Monday, November 14, 2011 - link

    anyone figure out how to actually enter yet?
  • bornperuvian - Monday, November 14, 2011 - link

    Ya, the link is actually incorrect in the post.

    Go to: https://www.facebook.com/Intel?sk=app_284558204917...



    The giveaway is US and Canada. First 3 weeks are drawing based, and the last week is a video creation contest. Enjoy!

    Problem is, the Giveaway page on Facebook has nothing on it.
  • bornperuvian - Monday, November 14, 2011 - link

    You have to be logged in, then accept the contest application. Works for me no problem.

    entry@poweredbyintel.com is the support email.

    Finally started working for me. Had to wait (like 5 minutes) for a popup asking me if I wanted to display non-secure items.

    I'm surprised it displayed anything at all. Isn't everything on Facebook a non-secured item?
