I dont need a new case, but a friend of mine really does. His pc looks like complete garbage, its dented, stained, the front door and bay covers are broken (due to the joys of having a 3yr old). His current case is over 8years old, he has upgraded everything in it several times, and insists that it "works just fine". Now that his child is beyond the destruction stage he deserves a nicer piece of furinature for the livingroom (htpc).

btw,
This forum is awesome!! iv been lurking for years

Hello judges, let me first just say thank you to all who are investing their time and donating their cases to this contest. It truly is exceedingly generous of you. I would very much like to possess any of those cases. My main reason for needing a case at the moment is for my folding farm I am currently working on assembling/buying parts for. Any current cases I own are sadly too small, being used, or have too pitiful of airflow for 24/7 folding. Some people would argue that I should simply run "caseless" however this isn't really a viable option for me seeing as how I have five cats (don't ask) who would just love to snuggle up next to a few toasty graphics cards. As far as proudly showcasing this case to OCN, that would most definitely be done as nobody assembles a good folding farm without pictures. My other reason for needing one of those cases is that all of them are rather nice. Knowing me though, I'll probably go over budget on this folding farm and probably end up buying the cheapest thing I can scrounge up off newegg. Thanks for your consideration, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Picture of the most annoying of my cats, notice his disregard for my laptop or homework :

[entry] Well I need a case because stuff just keeps coming up and I just can't afford a case to put any of my parts in. I have that stuff in my rig that I cant do anything with because I have no case and I don't want to put it on a desk. For one reason thats a lot of money for something to break by being on a desk. Also I have my old parts that I wanted to put in a pc and start to folding again for OCN. But I need to get two cases for that. The only case i have is the one I have pictured and that can't house 2 gtx 280's, Xeon Quad-Core X3370 3GHz, and all the rest and keep it with out over heating. So if I could get this case I could put my sig in it and get another for the folding rig. And I would finally get to use my i7. Which I cant wait for.. So all I have left to say is good luck to everyone. And all I can hope for is something good comes my way soon.

Hey there. I'm relatively new to OCN, and as such, I don't really expect to have much of a chance in this competition. I'm still entering though, because I'm still hopeful. I mean, over my time here, I'm not sure how much more I could've contributed to be helpful. Any time I see a system builder looking for advice, I do go out and try and give it, and while I hate blowing my own trumpet (it's something we have to do in this thread, it seems), I really do do my best to find the best deal for the person looking. I've not been here long, and joined mainly because I'm looking at putting together my own computer for a mixture of folding and gaming sometime in the next two to three months. I don't yet have the case, and to be honest, the first prize looks amazing! It's my first build since I had to choose between an AGP/PCI card during the switch to AGP (Nvidia GeForce 4/5 series cards, if memory serves) and I'd like to do it in style! I do hope that you consider me, and even if not, I still applaud your giving things like this out.

So like back in 2008 I decided I was sick of having my POS dell as a computer and finally manned up to build my own. I found this wonderful site OCN and have been here ever since.

Fast forward 1 month to when I started to buy parts and discovered slickdeals. I got all penny pinching and only decided to buy parts that were on sale, which caused my build to be stretched over the course of almost 2 months. The final part, the case, I bought had been a RAIDMAX Aztec. Now this was about the time I discovered the case modding community here, and I was intrigued. I looked through all the beautiful case mods that were being showcased and I thought "I should be able to do that too!". So I immediately de-riveted the case and brought in the saws and spray paint. Sadly I didn't have much time to work on this and started to get less motivated as time went on, and to this day the case still lies in pieces in the basement, waiting to be painted and assembled.

Now of course I couldn't run my computer without a case for that long, so I decided to make my own wooden case, and the result was pretty good, and I've been using that ever since.

Still, I've never actually used a real case before, as I had disassembled my Raidmax before all my parts arrived, so I think it'd be really great if I could get a case to start anew with.



This is the wooden case that I've been using for almost two years now.

Its hard to say who deserves it the most, I think all of us who understand what OCN is about are good and deserving individuals, so while I can’t say with any kind of certainty that I am the most deserving, I can say with certainty that I do my very best to be a helpful member of the OCN community and act in accordance with what we stand for, and I am certain that I need a new case.

I started to get back into computers in Feb of 2009, I was big in computers when I was a kid but at 14 started down the wrong path of alcoholism and drug abuse for the next decade. When I met my wife 10 years later (In a bar no less) she convinced me that there was more to live for and a few months later I went through a week of the most horrifying withdrawals you could ever imagine as the white powder and alcohol attempted to maintain their control. Well, I won and got clean, a few weeks later I got a job and a few weeks after that I found out my wife was pregnant. I wanted to get a computer up and running then but there just wasn't the money as my son was soon to be born.

Finally a year later I found my chance, with my tax return that year I spent a mild $700 and put together my first dual core machine, with a 4830 in an antec 300. Later that year I got a bonus from work and was able to put a 4870 and Phenom II 940 in it. The next year’s tax return I didn’t have quite so much money to spend and was able to put a 5870 in and get a monitor but that was about it.

After that a big surprise, my brother traded an MPC 1000 on craigslist for an I7 machine and then even more a surprise traded motherboards/processor/ram with me, he said he would never use that much power and would prefer I had it. Things seemed to be looking up for my computer world, I had an I7 rig with a 5870 and great mobo, all through very careful planning I was able to get all that without taking from my wife and son. I didn't have much more that I needed to upgrade with the exception of a new case (I was leaning towards the soon to be released corsair 600), the Antec 900 I had wanted so bad and gotten off of craigslist was a big letdown in terms of room/noise and cable management, I did my best to mod it but there isn't much to work with, so I started saving for the corsair 600t, unfortunately that is where it has ended.

My car, which I had for years, wouldn’t pass smog and I was forced to let it go, then I had to gather every cent I had to get another one, I spent $2000, all the money I had in the world to buy a 1990 Camry from my wife's "family friend's" dealership. Within a month the transmission blew, I was having the worst luck, but to my rescue, a friend came, he gave me his 1982 Datsun 280zx as a commuter so I could get to work and hopefully save enough to fix my car, unfortunately as my luck would have it the motor blew 2 months later. I am now a pedestrian, with no public transit to get me to work at 5am my little brother takes me now. Working on saving up but between taking care of three people on a single income, and putting my wife through school, its going to be a while before I can get it fixed, which puts my hopes for a new case a long long way away. I got so close to building my dream machine before being stopped in my tracks

Well that’s my long story because I am incapable of saying anything in less than 1000 words, whoever wins, let me say thank you to FannBlade and Calamity for the generosity, this embodies what OCN is all about and in that sense really you two are the most deserving of winning these prizes. Good luck to everyone.

Thank you!
