Neowin Giveaway: Antec Basiq 350 Power Supply

In celebration of Neowin's 10 year anniversary, we decided that it would be best to give away a few things. Progressively, the prizes will get better as we get closer to the end of the month. So to keep things going were giving away an Antec 350 Basiq power supply.

So what do you have to do to win the power supply? It's easy, post a comment below telling us how much you love Neowin. You can enter once per day and the contest will end on Friday, October 15th at midnight EST. The winner will be notified by PM and can be anywhere in the world as long as your country allows a power supply to be imported (and probably taxed).

The Bag of Crap winner is: ThaCrip

I love neowin for giving me news and forums to go through every morning after work... its been a regular routine for years now. Good luck everyone and thanks for the contests neowin!

I love Neowin since their great information on th news of computers, updates, and of course the day to day layout of the website

oh, thanks neowin...this is sweet...

now i will be able to upgrade my 7-year old 1.7ghz celeron processor-powered computer to a new htpc (core i3-540) with your 350w gift...

and i love neowin so much that i deleted all my other tech subscriptions just to have an extra chance of winning this 350w psu lottery...
(okay, i made up this "extra" rule but who can blame me? i love free stuffs)

I love Neowin so much, that even if my computer is broken, im posting this from my cellphone using EDGE ( 5 mins to load each page)

I <3 Neowin.... really I do. Seriously. I mean, well not seriously seriously. Just seriously enough that I took the time to make a bookmark for it and click said bookmark religiously on a daily basis. I even flipped the 'like' link above.

Ok, well if I has a nice new PSU then I could power on all 4 of my computers and my laptop and pump some real neowin love on all 6 LCD monitors and a projector.

Neowin and its unprofessional journalisim look great all day everyday

neowin FOR the win

I love Neowin enough to point out that half the people posting should be disqualified from the contest since they're not following the rules. The rules state you must post "How much" you love Neowin. This must be a quantitative answer. The rules don't ask you to post 'why' you love Neowin or 'if' you love Neowin. In conclusion, I should get the power supply.

In the darkness,
I found your light.
When all was hopeless,
your beauty shown bright.

When I thought that I
could love no more.
You touched my heart,
to the very core.

You made me smile,
when I could only frown.
You picked me up
when I was down.

When all was lost
you gave me life.
You brought me joy
instead of strife.

Now i think of you
every day and night.
you came into my life
and made everything right.

i smile when we're together
and when we are apart.
the presence of your beauty
stops my very heart.

i hope as time goes on
you will see how i feel.
and i hope that you will see
that these feelings are for real.

I love you truly,
I love you wholly.
I love you completely,
I love you solely.

Garbage power supplies! I have had 4 Antec PSU's die on me and that included the RMA one they sent me. Seasonic, or Corsair from now on.

... I spend more time here than with my wife.
Seriously, forums are great, news are awesome and editorials are epic.
Did I mention the Apple/MS fan boys who make me laugh almost everyday?

Long life to neowin!

I love Neowin caus they are going to give me a free power supply to replace the one in my little server at home. Its PSU blew up last night and made my study stink of burnt out electronics.

It still smells today...

I paid money to be a member, I think that says it all about NEOWIN "hhoooorrraaahhhhh"

Well I guess I still love Neowin just as much as I did in the Bag o' Crap competition too. And I still have you guys in the center of my iGoogle home page.

I can actually see a use for this PSU as I may be needing a computer that I can just have running all the time to act as a server of sorts (but it wouldn't be a server...). Money's a little tight so every little bit would count.

This would be the answer to my prayers! The PSU I have currently could be matched by a pair of hamsters on a wheel, and for me to get a new GPU I need more power. No matter how many times I ask Scotty for more power, I get the "I'm giving you all she's got" response and that's not nearly enough.

Neowin's giveaways are the best, but the fact that the rest of the site is superior only makes it even better.

Little power supplies like this still have their place. Things like putting together a pfSense router or XBMC media center.

The original stories are why I keep coming back to Neowin. I used to have a massive list of tech sites I checked daily, but now I'm down to 6. Neowin has been on that list for quite some time. Keep up the good work.

If you don't like the prize then please do yourself and others a favor and don't bring your negativity into this section. There are people who would really benefit from it.

And I love Neowin more than any other website! It's my first bookmark, and it's the first website I go to. Even before checking my email:

I have been coming to neowin since 2001 and have always enjoyed the news content. Wish I could be a moderator of forums but still love the site.

I don't know if this is love but Neowin is my first stop tech site I visit everyday first thing in the morning. XD

This power supply would be better than the no-brand one currently in my box. No-brand power supplies typically produce less wattage than claimed.

Win-win with Neowin! Me win?


I love neowin...yeeaaahhhh!

If I win I'm going to hook it up to my iPhone4 so I can just bypass the antannae issue all together

This would do alright in an upcoming build I'm doing And of course only the lovely Neowin could be giving it away! They are the Gods of love.

I love Neowin because it is the best forum on the internet. The other day I was speaking with a very old wise man and he also mentioned that Neowin was the only forum on the internet worth going to on a daily basis.

Without Neowin I wouldn't have a place on the internet to call home. Neowin you are my hero.

Been here for a few years and I still read the news and post in forums, can't say that for many sites.. That got to be love

I, rpsgc, take you Neowin, and promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love you and honor you all the days of my life.

uh... can this thing power up anything? o_o come one neowin don't be so cheap, this thing is barely $30

"Progressively, the prizes will get better as we get closer to the end of the month."

I love Neowin, I've been reading news here for more than 7 years and I must say it's a very valuable source of information.

WOW if this is a step up from the "Bag of Crap" what one earth was in the back of crap? LOL

Anyway, I love Neowin I want to have its babies, gimme gimme power supply hehehe

Sorry but what? Not to be mean but is this a joke giveaway? Any modern computer needs atleast 450w or more to properly run without a hitch, literally.

No, not really. This PSU would be great for a HTPC. My HTPC's case came with a 350W PSU built in.

I have a 300w PSU in my gaming PC, of course I looked long and hard for a video card that would work in it... but now it's near silent
