To celebrate our quest to enter the top 100 Folding teams, Hardware Canucks and ASUS have teamed up to present to you our " Push for 100" Contest.:canadianwave:

ASUS has generously donated the following two prizes: one of their new GTX 260 216 Matrix cards and an ultra-rare GTX 285 Ultimate. To our knowledge, this is the ONLY GTX 285 Ultimate in North America.


The contest will be set up as follows:

ASUS GTX 285 Ultimate Prize

The GTX 285 Ultimate Edition prize will be open to anyone in North America who Folds for Hardware Canucks (team #54196) within the next 30 days and posts a minimum of 15,000 points over that time. This includes current members of the Folding team.


ASUS GTX 260 Matrix Prize

Attachment 5196

The GTX 260 Matrix Edition prize will be open to current folders (as of the day the contest starts) who have posted at least 10,000 points during the last 30 days.

A list of eligible members for the GTX 260 Matrix prize can be found here (staff members will be excluded).


Hardware Canucks is throwing in the following as secondary prizes:

So, correct me if I'm wrong, but the GTX260 prize is only awarded to someone already on the list?

So I've got a 1 in 50ish chance? Sweet! I just ticked over 1 million points this week, took me 15 months. The next million should take about 3 months. :canadianwave:

You got that right Gord, and you can remove Mods / Staff members too from that list.

Yuppers!!!!

We wanted to encourage new folders to join, but also wanted to recognize those who've contributed to our success to date.

Not only do you have a decent chance at the 260, but you've also got a chance to win the 285.

Good luck to all!!!!!

Don't forget, anyone who broke 10,000 points for us in the last month is entered in BOTH contests. Meanwhile, the newbies can easily enter the contest to win the Ultimate.

Well, this contest reminded me to stop folding for NCIX (was doing it since my 7600GT, sadness)
Swapped my team over, gonna get me a folding tag for here as well.

Jake_HT April 15, 2009 11:07 AM

Quit folding for a few days but I'm back at er again! Gotta love HWC!!!!!!!!!

Inik April 15, 2009 11:08 AM

NICE!!

Bad timing for me since I'm currently out (gtx 280 in RMA). Can't wait to receive it and fold for 3 days in a row to get 15k :haha:

I'd also like to make note that the "current folders" list was made up this morning, and I'm pretty sure I caught everybody who meets the criteria, but if somebody feels they meet the criteria, and they don't see their name up there, drop me a PM and I'll have another look at the stats.
