Phase two of MSI's Master Overclocking Arena 2009 is over, and you know what that means.
Last week, we said that, thanks to MSI's support, we would be giving away one MSI X58 Platinum SLI motherboard and one MSI N260GTX-T2D896 OCV3 graphics card to readers who correctly predicted the phase-two competition winners. MSI has now announced those winners: Mike Guava of Team USA in first place and Fugger of XtremeSystems in second place. We've therefore gone and drawn winners from our contest.
30 participants correctly predicted the competition winners and their positions, so we had to pick two names in a random draw. The first name that came up was Trey Cook, and the second was Robert Kwietniowski.
Messrs. Cook and Kwietniowski, you should have received e-mails at the addresses you entered in the contest. Just reply to those e-mails, and we'll arrange to have the prizes sent to you. Mr. Cook, having gotten his name picked first, will get to choose either the graphics card or the mobo. Mr. Kwietniowski will get to take home the remaining prize.
