Prizes: Biostar Hi-Fi A85W Motherboards
Three lovely Biostar Hi-Fi A85W motherboards will be given away, here is what our review had to say about the board:

"Great sounding audio, a decent amount of overclocking, and a wide variety of potential uses would sum the Hi-Fi A85W up nicely. Couple that with a price that is extremely attractive; and I think we have an Overclocker’s Approved on our hands here!"



The company line from Biostar:
Quote:
"Your World Beats in Hi-Fi Style"

The Hi-Fi A85W features BIOSTAR in-house audio called “Puro Hi-Fi Technology” and a unique power delivery system specifically for the audio subsystem. This board is ideal for a home theater system with full THX support and true 7.1 surround sound. All the BIOSTAR Hi-Fi series motherboards are equipped with special components to ensure the best possible audio quality consistency.
Thanks to Biostar for sponsoring this contest. Best of luck to all those who enter!

Pretty sure it's illegal in Canada anyhow. Our contests are required by law to have a secondary method of entry such as you could just write "Biostar" on a piece of paper along with your name and address and then send it to the company holding the contest and they'd have to put you in the mix to possibly be chosen as winner. It's the "no purchase necessary/no membership required" thing.

Hmm that's an interesting thought. Here in the USA it's "no purchase", but "membership" isn't involved I don't think.

We also have a "skill testing question" component to our contests, so that the "winner" isn't someone who got lucky, they earned the victory.
