Let me start my entry by stating that I'm not interested in First Prize, as I don't need something so flashy and I think if a Case is to be given away it should be to someone who truly likes the design.
I believe I deserve a case because of my awesome help on the Watercooling forum. I've helped hundreds upon hundreds of people in that forum with all kinds of watercooling problems. While I originally joined Overclock.net back in 2009, it was not until late August 2010 that really got into it. Over the past couple of months I have really become involved in the water cooling section, answering many questions about different things.
Proof of my help can be seen here
. (Those are just some of the people who have personally thanked me, basically all of my rep is from the WC forum).
Additionally, I answer about 3-4 PMs a day written by people directly messaging me for advice (Here is one such testimonial
I will be using this case to complete a Christmas present for my brother, who has done some awesome things for me in the past. He's currently stuck with a P4/7600 GT rig trying to play TF2 and COD4, so I'm looking to upgrade him to my rig (When I upgrade) My self-made wooden case is pretty ugly (and he doesn't like it) so I'm trying to find a case to put these parts into. I'm also going to install the Rasa WC kit, so the 600T would be preferable, but then again I'd be fine with the Lian Li as a little dremeling goes a long way (to fitting the 240mm radiator). With either case I'll be posting a build log on OCN, as well as reaction shots when I give it to him
. (Luckily he doesn't go on Overclock.net, so I can keep it a secret...).
Additionally, if I do win this prize I will put up my wooden case as a freebie on OCN - shipping included. While it looks meh, it is fully functional as a case, with room for 3 x HDDs, separate cooling zones and tons of airflow. A coat of stain would go a long way to improving it's looks. A great case for a folder who doesn't care too much about looks.
