    MSI Australia have recently become an OCAU Major Sponsor, and to celebrate we are giving away one of their new MSI Z68A-GD80 motherboards!

    All you need to do is make a creative (or crazy!) video about MSI’s OC Genie II and their range of motherboards, and upload it to YouTube, and link it in this thread. ProTip: use the youtube or youtubehd tags in the forums, and between the tags put just the unique code from your YouTube url. That way it will embed properly and be viewable in the thread.

    The video shouldn't be any longer than 2-3 minutes, and can include yourself talking about MSI's Z68 motherboard and OC Genie II or you can even create a OC Genie character - you can visit this page for more in-depth information on the features of MSI’s Z68 range.

    The video submission round will close on Friday the 27th of May 2011 at 9:00:00 PM EDT. After that a new thread with all the videos, each will be numbered, and there will be a poll for OCAU's users to vote on the final winner.

    Final voting will close on the 3rd of June 2011 at 8:27:00 PM EDT.

    Other Details:

    - Your video entry must be linked or embedded in this thread for your entry to be valid.
    - You must include you OCAU username in your YouTube video uploaded.
    - The winner will be selected based on the highest amount of votes when final voting closes.
    - The motherboard will be mailed out once the winner has been notified and shipping information is secured.
    - If the winner does not reply within 48 hours upon the final vote closing, the person with the second highest number of votes will be contacted and declared as the new winner.
    - This is only open to Australian residents.

    So take my advice, just do a flash video of the msi product page and you'll win. Or just take a stage video of angry birds and replace the red ones with oc genie logo and the other ones, blue? with soyo logos.

    Good luck to whoever busts their guts for such a generous prize. Yes, I had a bigger rant, but I'll leave it at that.

    Thanks guys was worried it would just be plain old lame..... we tired so hard for good we ended up going with bad :)it was easier....

    I really thought there would have been more interest in this by now?

    Last one was cool they did

    I really enjoy this style of thing and i did it on a shoe string .... could have edited it windows movie maker i didnt do anythign that fancy i borrowed a dig cam and convinced friends to act :) my only cost was $2.75 for the TED....

    Hopefully more people just been in hiding so they dont get their ideas stolen :)
