Hello, firstly let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Ant, im 15 years old and live in england and I am very much into computers. Unfortunately me and my family have little money to waste on such expensive parts as my father has lost his job due to the british economy cuts and the £1000 that I saved to pay for my i7 rig has had to go to pay bills and unexpected costs -.-, me and my sister have have felt most of it. No more gifts, not even getting and christmas presents this year thats how bad it is . I have been using a pentium 4 1.6ghz hp dc5100 sff machine for 7 to 8 years and I am getting sick of it now, I am jealous of all of you that can afford to pay for $300+ lian li cases and heavy hitting dual cpu SR-2 rigs, I hope I get a job that pays as lucratively as you guys who can afford all that. I cant even play online games such as counter strike with my friends without lag. Fortulately my uncle who works at pcworld managed to get me some of the parts that they take out of machines that have been returned so I have a phenom ii x4, a generic asus motherboard, 500w generic psu and nvidia 240gt card. I really need a case to put it all in as its just sitting at my desk at the moment and I am feeling upset that I cant do it justice. heres a picture of my current rig , it has no top case as I bought it on discount at a local computer shop. How I wish i hadnt now!.

I have already done twenty weeks on a paper round just to save up £200 for the ram and gpu - i know its not good but I can't afford anything better. If I won I would be over the moon as the case would really set it all off nicely and make it look like a very expensive machine, truly a work of pure art . A happy day to you, seasons greetings and god bless you for hosting such practical competitions! P.S. - I am not trying to get a sympathy vote, I just would really really like to win this case as I think I have a strong reason to need one and I'm not gettng anything at christmas. Actually I'm not getting anything until the government puts more funding into the public sector so my dad has a job again! I know that I am relatively new at OCN but I am starting to become more active as schoolwork dies down and I try my best to help others. - I strongly believe I need this case the most out of anyone here. Heck if they can spend $500+ on just a cpu then a case shouldnt be an issue right?

Cheers for reading this excessively long post! If anyone wants to chat on ventrilo or MSN just to verify that I am not a 40 year old peadophile please feel free to chat with me! cheers

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, here, here, here, here and 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.

Thanks,

--Charliehorse

Thank You.

For others we will not make any decisions on posts until we review them on Dec.31st. So don't think it won't help to edit your post.

Thanks to all that have entered so far.

I think I could really use this case. My sig rig is in a beatup, dented CM310 missing the front and side panels, that I literally found in the trash. My rig would look beautiful in any one of those cases, and it would give it a proper home instead of the metal monstrosity I currently have it in. I simply don't have the money to go buy any new PC parts right now, let alone a new case. Please consider my entry, and thanks to everyone for this awesome contest!

I spend a lot of my time in the PC gaming Forum, but I wander around the site quite a bit. Here's proof of me helping (I have been rep'd for all of these):

I think I deserve this marvelous case, because throughout my life of owning computers I have yet to own one as good as this one. I currently upgraded my computer, but was shy on the money and couldn't afford better a case. So, I had to gut out a friends HP case, and boy is it small. Now, I have a XFX 4870 1GB that idles 70 Celsius and goes almost up to 100 Celsius! With my current case I have barely any room for this graphics card, as well as there is no possible way or organize the cables. This case would, and I hope decrease the temperatures on this card by giving it some breathing room, as well as give my new computer better look. I know I haven't been on OCN that long, but with this new case who knows the possibilities! Oh, and for you people out there im in the market for a 5850, so keep them eyes peeled for me.

Also, I find it great that OCN is having this contest in order to help out the community. Good stuff people. Also, I will be uploading pictures of my cramped computer case once I get my camera back. Thanks!

Just a thought, many people have been saying that the person who helped the most on OCN should win. Well I'm gonna pretty much assume that a "handy helper" will have many knowledge about computers and does computing for a job/hardcore hobby. This person probably has a great case, in fact it'll probably safe to put: a MAGNIFICENT SYSTEM. If the best helper on OCN wins the case, they'll probably build a system that they're not going to use and *boing* in the closet. So i'm just saying that you should offer the case to the person who needs the case most. I'm not saying this because I want to win these cases but I want to see these fabulous cases go to good use. I don't really mind if you don't respect my opinions but... you know these are my thoughts.
