If you've read our Core i7 3960X Review, you'll know that Intel's Sandy Bridge E platform can be incredibly fast. If you want to own a 3960X system without the pesky details of actually paying for the machine, Intel is kicking off a contest today where you can enter to win such a thing (and more). 

Every week for the next four weeks Intel will be giving away something SNB-E related. Each giveaway period starts at 9AM PT and ends at 5PM PT, 7 days later. The first giveaway begins today.

This week Intel is giving away a Core i7 3930K with a DX79SI motherboard (the same board we used in our SNB-E CPU review). Next week it'll be a 3960X with the DX79SI. The following week it'll be a 3960X, DX79SI, Intel RTS2011LC cooler and Intel SSD 510. And the grand prize will be a hand selected build around the 3960X from Newegg.

For full contest rules and entry information head on over to Intel's Facebook page. The official messaging from Intel is below. Good luck!

    They are trying to double the 'sales' figures I suspect. How could such an elegant chip turn out to be such a piece of bloat even though the graphics portion was chopped off ?
