Everyone at the store before half 1 was given a raffle ticket, giving attendees the chance to win several Overclockers UK extra large mouse mats, an Overclockers mug, a range of AMD APU’s and CPU’s and finally, a Sapphire Tri-X R9 290x. In addition, those who bought a Sapphire product have been entered into a prize draw for a Samsung U28D590 4K monitor- the winner will be announced on the Overclockers forum.
