THE CONTEST OFFICIALLY LIVE ONCE AGAIN (FOLD ON :cool:)


The April folding contest PART#4 has officially been extended until June 30th 11:59:59 PM Pacific time.


BY POPULAR DEMAND, ALL CONTEST REQUIREMENTS HAVE BEEN HALVED FOR EVERYBODY!!!!
IT is now only 25,000 points per entry so FOLD ON!!!!!!


This part of the contest has a special drawing for an I7 computer system.

Pics of the I7 system can be seen HERE
Full specs:

i7 920 lapped processor
Gigabyte X58-UD3R Motherboard
6GB DDR3 1333 Ram
LG Blueray drive with DVD writing capability
XFX Geforce 9800GT
Corsair 650W PSU
Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme CPU cooler with 2 120 CFM 120mm fans in Push-pull configuration
Antec Twelve Hundred Case
1x 250mm Top blowhole fan.
6x 120mm Blue LED fans (each with it's own adjustable speed control)
2x 120mm HIGH SPEED (120 CFM) (both rigged with it's own speed control and setup in a push-pull configuration with the TRUE)
The computer does not come with any hard drives or software.



Who is eligible...

0. ANY NEW MEMBERS that have joined in the last month

OR RECRUITING MEMBERS THAT WANT CREDIT FOR THIS CONTEST MUST SIGN UP USING THE FORMAT IN THE NEXT POST!

1. Any new member that folds for Team32 and produces 25,000 points before the end of the contest period.
1A. You can get additional entries for each additional 25,000 points that you fold.

2. If you are a current Team32 member and you convince a new member to sign up, You and that new member will each get a chance at the I7 Prize.
2A. Any additional entries your new recruit earns will earn you and additional entry.

3. New recruits may recruit new people too. Again 25,000 points need to be folded by the recruitee for the recruitee and recruiter to get the contest entry.

4. X folders (retired folders) that come out of retirement for the contest need to mention so in the sign up thread.

(A new member is defined as a member that has joined and just started folding for team32 within the last month.)


In a nutshell, how the contest works.

New members (joined within the last month) will receive chances to win the I7 system for every 25,000 points folded.

If you are not a new member, you can still gain chances to win by recruiting new members. Each time a new member that you recruited earns a contest entry, you do as well ;)



Contest restrictions...

The I7 prize will not be made available unless we have gained at least 300 new folding members. (this should not be much of a challenge as the contest will be posted on most deal sites and forums with cyberdeals section), however I would really like to see our T32 breathern stick together and defend 3rd place. with the addition of the 300 new folders it will be made a requirement that on the final day of the contest (may 4th) that there be at least 875 active folders (according to Kakao Stats) in order for the I7 computer to be available for the contest drawing.

If the required number of new members or active members are not met by the contest deadline then all I7 entries will be counted as 3 regular contest entries towards the other contest prizes (GTX295, PS3). In addition, if the number of contest entries are not met for the i7 to be given away then 2 consolation prizes will be added to the drawing pool. AN EVGA GTX 260 216 core GPU and a Gigabyte X58-UD3R motherboard (currently installed in the i7 system).

[note]
Because this part of the contest is being extended out nearly an additional 2 months, we will be unable to include the drawing of the GTX 295 or PS3 if the contest requirements are not met, because of this I have again lowered the requirements of new members from 375 to 300. If at the contest ending, the contest requirements have not been met then we still have a GTX 260 and the x58 motherboard to give away.
[/note]

(A new member is defined as a member that has joined and just started folding for team32 within the last month.)


However if they want entries of their own, you may want to let them know to post in this thread.

My Folding name is NzaneB, I joined Team32 on 4-4-09.

Seti's been having some issues, so I thought I'd put my GPU's to work for you guys for a while. Good Luck!

Too bad I only have a G92.:( I've been retired since last year, but I'll start up again (Finnyman) is the name.)

Hopefully you take a retired fellow back.:) And hopefully I can pull off 100,000 points...

But I'm sure everyone agrees that even a little trickle of points helps out.:)

(79,931 at startup from retirement.)

I Have just HALVED ALL REQUIREMENTS!!!

Now you only need 50,000 PPD to receive an entry. (each additional 50,000 PPD will earn you additional entries remember).

Also the Minimum number of New folders has been lowered from 1500 to 750 so it will be much easier to hit the minimum required number of new members mark. (however you will still need to do some recruiting in order to hit 750).


Guys, If you joined more than a month ago you are not eligible unless you are coming out of retirement. If you want to get some entries to enter for an I7 system, Go find some new members and get them to join. You get credit for whatever the people you recruit do ;)

I folded for a bit, but due to my incessant OS reinstalls stopped folding for a while. (probably 6 months)
I recently acquired a few computers, and if I can get the router to like me I'll have 3 respectable machines folding within 2 days.
Do i count as coming out of retirement on this?
Either way i'm going to get them set up.
Name should be curtis1552 when i get them up.
