Case Giveaway Contest [winners listed] - Page 40

[entry] [nomination]

I'd like to nominate someone, charliehorse55.

Just take a look at his posts. They are of the highest quality and help I've seen in a long time. In my "360 or 480 rad?" thread, he has been my life saver, so to speak. He helped me choose the right power pump, helped me understand, not only how to put a loop together, but also how it flows and how the heat is dissipated. Explained why I need a bigger pump, and how it all worked with each other. Even down to the fittings, the restriction of various parts and how this could potentially affect my loop. Everything.

There is a distinct difference between being told something, and learning something. He sets out to teach, and he is a damn good techer. Very much like the quote of:

"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach him to fish and he will eat for a lifetime"

He taught me how to fish, and I am no longer hungry.

He also taught me terms such as delta, and I've learn that higher RPM fans are not always better, it depends on the setup in hand. He backs up everything he says with evidence.

He even went has far as to calculate the Net Energy saving that I would save each year having my 9800GX2 water cooled instead of air cooled, which was above and beyond his call of duty:

Over the course of a year folding 24/7 this would be around Ã‚Â£60 of electricity (assuming Ã‚Â£0.09 per kWh).
He gives nothing but top notch, well thought out, grammatically correct advice, and if you have a question about water-cooling, he will know the answer. He won't even complain when he doesn't get thanked, which happens all too often.

He is a true credit to himself and OCN, without him, I would have never taken the plunge, no pun intended.

General E. I missed it the first time I looked for it as well. I didn't find it until I did a search for your user name, then used the FIND feature in Firefox to find it. I wasn't expecting to find two names listed back to back like that.

[entry] i would love to have this case because my thermaltake soprano isnt in a good condition. the side panel wont fit properly thanks to my cooler. the fans are very slow. the PCIE slot mounting clips are rubbish. i barely have enough space to fit any hard drives thanks to my large memory cooler getting in the way of all hdd's. my gpu ( its not that long its just as long as a gts250) also getting in the way of all hdd installations. temperatures are running hot on all components thanks to bad cooling performance. i would love to own that CM case. thanks for having this contest
