GrahamV, I have your email and Mulvihill's address. I didn't realize before that you were across the pond for some reason, and this gives me some interesting options (i.e. there may be another K62+450 to give away)...<br><br>It would be helpful to know which countries the following people live in...<br><br>Sandells<br>Fafurion<br>cooliscool123<br>Lankshire<br>4thman<br>Chewbacca1 (not part of the first drawing, but may include him in the followup)<br><br>People I am pretty sure where they are from...<br>jsc1973 (USA)<br>mulvihill (I have his address)<br>Manaroa (Australia)<br>io333 (USA)<br><br>Let me know people!<br><br><br> <p>My sig<br><br> not allowed</p><i></i>

well if I ever win a + chip, I'll have a k6/300 to give away.<br><br><br>(it is a k6 and not a k6-2 right? or was the fastest k6 ever made the finger-frying k6-266?) <p></p><i></i>

Now to figure out where Lankshire is from...

Post by Mr Toastz »

Grahamv, I have a plan...<br><br>I'm thinking that your K62+ 450 should go to a European member of K6Plus (because we haven't had a winner in that neck of the woods yet - athough we did have a winner in Australia about a year and a half ago). Do you concur with me holding a new drawing for the Euro members only?<br><br>As for Mulvihill, I have you covered... if Grahamv concurs, I have a K62+ 450 laying around somewhere I'll send to you (seeing Graham's would cost a bit to ship here).<br><br>That leaves KingV's K6III 333, which I will draw another name for (as soon as Grahamv shares his thoughts on this). <p></p><i></i>

Seems OK to me, but just a couple of points/queries:<br><br>1. I don't think the postage costs will be very different (unless it happens to be a UK winner), so I'm not greatly concerned on that matter.<br><br>2. Are there enough active european members of the board to make a separate draw viable (count me out of the draw for a start - I'd hardly want to post the chip to myself <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :( --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... /frown.gif ALT=":("><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> )<br><br>3. As far as the K6 III prize, I've taken on board your point that my 450 is a known quantity, and that there might be a lot of time wasted if I take the 333 then find it won't do what I want. Whether it does or not, there would be a delay while I get round to trying it. So perhaps, on balance, it would be best to leave the 333 as the prize. But I wouldn't mind hearing what other people think.<br><br>Hey, I've really blown your nice simple one-off draw for one chip out of the water, haven't I.<br><br>Regards to all <p></p><i></i>

Now what CPU is left?

Post by Chewbacca1 »

Like I posted before, AFAIK Tigerdirect is still selling K6-2 450s for $35 bucks shipped. I will prolly be buying a cheap K6-2 350 to replace me OCed P166MMX @ 250 <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :eek --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... ns/eek.gif ALT=":eek"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> , I do hope That a 350 will be OCable to 400 like the ones I've had in the past. I guess a K6-III 333 won't go much further than 350 on a 100Mhz fsb. The most interesting CPU for most of the posters would be the K6-2 I assume. Either way, should this still take as long untill I snatch a cheap K6-2 350 off ebay, I should win the next draw, I am willing to donate that (potential) K6-2 350. If it is up to me I can wait for grahamv to check out that K6-III 333 in exchange for a potential cpu.<br><br>Chewie.<br><br> <p></p><i></i>

Just to confuse things:<br><br><br>I have the following two items I do not think I will ever use:<br><br>1. Some kind of ATI Rage card, AGP, 8 megs I think -- I have to find it first to see exactly what it is. I think it's a "Rage Pro" but I'm not sure. <br><br>2. A 750Mhz Duron that clocks fine to 900 at 1.85 volts but that I always ran stock speed at .05 volts below spec (I had a bad K6-3+/450 O/Cing experiment that made me give up O/Cing). I think I used it for about 5 months.<br><br><br>If the winner of the K6-3/333 wants to trade for one of those, I'll do it.<br><br><br>If that happens (which means I actually have to go to the post office), I'll throw the remaining item up here as a giveaway contest item and mail it to the winner for that item at the same time as I mail the trade item. <p></p><i></i>

tigerdirect....

Post by His Royal Majesty King V »

Actually, the TigerDirect deal is . . well, a so-so deal...<br><br>The K6-2+ 450 is $34.99, but their least expensive shipping method is UPS ground . . which, to my address, they charge $9.43 for, bringing the price to $44.42. Still not shabby, but definitely a pricey shipping and handling rate.<br><br>Still probably beats out a lot of the eBay deals though... <p></p><i></i>

OK!!! Mulvihill, wait patiently...

Post by Mr Toastz »

Mulvihill has a K62+ 450 on the way to him (as soon as I dig it out...)<br><br>KingV, keep that 333 in a safe place until Mulvihill gets his CPU (just in case it gets lost in the mail and we need to send him the 333 instead). Then I will announce the winner of the 333.<br><br>GrahamV, we do have a few Euro members (not sure how many have been around recently though), and with the post 9/11 headaches trying to get anything in or out of this country... well the Euro K6 drawing is about to commence (see new thread!) <p></p><i></i>
