We announced the winner from our first XFX PSU contest yesterday, but we've still got two more XFX power supplies to give out. Today, we're letting folks enter for a chance to win the XFX Pro Series 750W, the second-highest-wattage model of the bunch.
This bad boy has almost all of the same perks as the 850W model from last week's giveaway, including a single 12V rail, 80 Plus Bronze certification, certification under both Nvidia SLI and AMD CrossFire schemes, a purportedly quiet 135-mm fan, and five-year warranty coverage. The only difference, as far as I can tell, is that this model's 12V rail only supplies up to 62A (744W), versus 70A (840W) for the 850W unit.
To enter for a chance to win, take a gander at the rules and regulations below and fill in the form at the bottom of this post with both your answer to our qualifying questions and your contact details—which we'll be sure to keep to ourselves, as always.
Rules and regulations
Sorry, but this contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada (except Quebec) only.
To enter, fill out the form below, correctly answering two easy questions. The answers are revealed clearly in our review of AMD's Radeon HD 6990. (XFX, by the way, sells a Radeon HD 6990 just like the reference card we reviewed.)
Only one entry is allowed per person, household, or e-mail address. Multiple entries per person, household or address are not permitted. Please don't try to game the system by entering your girlfriend, wife, kids or pets. We'll probably disqualify you if you do.
We will be accepting giveaway entries between the time this post goes up (March 25) and March 30 at noon CST. We'll then choose our winner in a random drawing from among all eligible entries. The winner will be announced on the site and will also be notified via e-mail on March 31. The winner must claim his prize by the end of the day on Sunday, April 3, or he will forfeit his prize and we will draw a new winner.
You must include your full name and a physical shipping address with your entry. Only the winner's name will be announced on the site. We will not share the address or other personal information with our sponsors or anyone else. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. TR reserves the right to disqualify entries that appear to be attempts to game the system or circumvent the rules in any way.
The staff of The Tech Report and their immediate families may not enter the giveaway and are not eligible to win.
We will accept entries only from residents of the United States and Canada (Quebec excepted). No purchase is necessary. This giveaway is void where prohibited by law. Neither TR nor XFX is responsible for any taxes on the prize, damage in shipping, damage caused by using the prize with other products, or health issues such as RSI, eye strain, or chemical addictions that may result from prolonged use of the prize. We may answer questions and offer clarifications of the rules in this comments thread.
Here are the two questions:
