Case Giveaway Contest [winners listed] - Page 25  

post #241 of 898
[Entry]
My brother Sam has been PC-game-less for months now. Around a year ago, I gave him my 7900GS when I upgraded. It was the only card we had that would fit in his Dell computer, which can only fit a single-slot, short-PCB card. Now that card is dead. I have some old barebones components from the Pentium 4 era and a friend gave us his old 8800GTS to help migrate Sam off of the Dell. The only problem is that there is no safe place to house this computer in the open. His careless friends will almost definitely break something if the components are exposed. To get my brother gaming again, I need a new case. Not to mention that there is literally no more space to have components laid out.

[edit]: Just want to say that with my senior year of school, college applications, and life, I have totally run out of time to get Sam's "new" computer into a new case, and I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do it at all before I move out. Having a ready-to-go case that doesn't need tons of modifications to work with the hardware would be my last hope and last option .

What the heck, I've got nothing to lose.

[entry]

These cases are really nice..and I'm running one hell of a small case for the hardware in my PC and over the past year have been steadily adding parts to make sure use of every single cubic inch. There's nothing wrong with the PC itself, but my current case would make a great replacement for my dad's PC - it was really meant to be an HTPC case anyway. I figured with everything he's done the past couple of months (opening a restaurant and getting me a job), he deserves a good Christmas present. He's still running an AMD duron on his PC which is from god knows when. I already have an old Athlon X2 3600+ setup with all the extra parts that I upgraded from over a year ago, just no case. He can barely watch movies on that PC, but with the spare x1900gt I have, I can have it hooked up to his TV so both my parents can watch their flicks without stuttering at 1920x1080. All I need is a replacement case for my PC!! Money's really in a tight spot right now and I can't even afford to spend $60 on a new solid case from newegg. I was really hoping for a new CF mobo and new GPU's for christmas which was gonna work for my case, but it looks like that's not gonna happen. With one of these cases, I can just slap a decent video card a couple months-year down the road without having to worry about whether or not it's gonna fit. This is an awesome holiday giveaway though, and I hope the people in need get what they deserve. Cheers!!!

Why should I win this contest? Because I love to help people on these forums whenever possible. I may not be the most knowledgable person when it comes to hardware, but I do have a few tricks up my sleeve. I haven't been around ocn for very long, but the short time I have I really feel welcomed. I hope to make others feel welcome here at the ocn whenever possible as well. What would I do with the case if i win? Im looking to build an i3 rig for my mother and winning one of those cases would help out tremendously with the budget. As it is Im already over budget on this build. The i3 will be a big upgrade for her (current pc is e5200 pentium). Thanks for considering this entry guys!

I would have tremendous use for this case.Building my sigrig was quite a hole in my pocket so had to settle for a crap LOCAL case which doesn't even have gud vents for airflow. Pretty much the it only used when i have opened its side panel as the heat generated is tremendous.The best part is it doesn't even have cable management so it kinda helps in blockin air more. After finally working up enough money to desperately upgrade it from a Pentium 4 to Phenom II X4 955 BE, I'm still short on cash to afford a new case . If I could put my sig rig into this case it would allow me to OC it more easily and also if i am able to save some dough i can put a nice water block to OC it optimally.

i want the third case. it screams "small watercooling with a 240 rad in the front" however, i am currently out of work. maybe some day down the line. but for now, i just want to put all my extra money into a folding rig. my girl's mom died of cancer and i dove head-on into folding, getting 50k points in a matter of days (should get my folding stats below my name tomorrow, because i will hit 50k tonight.) so yeah... i dont know. im broke but i want to make a folding farm comp out of cheap video cards and an old CPU my dad might give me... folding means a lot to us.

BTW i will TOTALLY cut the F@H logo into the side and make it a graphic window. that would be so awesome...

Thank you for this opportunity, I could really use a new case because mine, however not being in bad condition, is too small. With My current case I have no room for my new video card because it touches the end of my hard drive and my hard drive can only be in that slot because the ram is too tall because my case isn't wide enough. I cannot add another fan because the fan slot is blocked by the hard drive and there are no other slots, this combined with my cpu cooler, makes it where my processor gets too hot running flash games. Even with the side panel off it will get up to 80 degrees celcius if I run something too long. I could really use the case but I know it is a long shot but I thought I might give it a go. Thank you for the opportunity

In the few years I have been a computer enthusiast, I have not at any time had the money to buy a case. Instead, I have put my high powered parts in dingy, old cases. This is the case I have for my secondary rig. It has neither a fan port in the front, nor in the back. The only way for air to travel through the case is through the open slot bay in the front, and then through the PSU fan. I don't think you can see it the picture provided, but the railing where the side attaches to is bent, so the siding cannot be put on.

My primary rig's case is not in any better condition. It was given to me by a friend, and well it isn't the greatest thing I've gotten. I cannot provide a photo until Wednesday, but I'll describe it's flaws: 1. There is not enough room in the back fan port to fit a fan while using the cpu cooler 2. There is actual rust on the outside of the case 3. The case window has many scratches, plus several dings on it 4. The case overall has many scratches and buffs 5. Some of the lights on the front don't work.

I would very much like one of these cases to replace one of my ghetto cases (Preferably my sig rig's case).

EDIT:
Here are the pics from my sig rig. The side panel is actually at my mother's home at the moment, and I'll get those tomorrow.

Front-You can see the lights are out on one side, as well as various scratches on the front.

The Dent-This is actually a dent on the top of the case. Hot, isn't it?

Slim Fit-Here is the whole 1/4 inch of clearance for a fan.
