    Lucky you, I just got that sinking feeling after going through every review and missed it.... Time for coffee and then try again.

    I think I'll skip this one. While I love to use AIO coolers, I don't think I'll take the final step any time soon (or ever) and go for real, customisable liquid cooling systems. Thus this would be wasted on me, and I don't like the idea of winning a prize only to sell it. That would seem like an insult to all the other participants who would have had personal use for the hardware.

    Good luck to everybody else!

    Good luck everyone!

    I'm skipping this one. I'm still afraid of liquid cooling, all the leak horror stories (I know they're not that common but yeah) and as I don't overclock it would be wasted on me.

    Well it helps to check the loop for leakage before installing it. Nice prize.

    If I didn't have an ITX build, I would be very interested in this. My BOINC rig is already liquid cooled and I have no interest in building another whole PC for myself, so, I'll sit this one out.

    It doesn't matter ,leaks can show up later ,plastic cracks ,rubber stiffens and crack it happens.But you know how it is said, who doesn't risk doesn't profit.
    Water cooling is more riskier then air cooling but it comes with nice prize;lower temperatures.today water cooling it is much safer then it used to be buuut there is always that risk of leakage.

    Gonna skip this one, already got a full acrylic loop and have decided that the next build will either be a quick and simple AIO or back to old school air cooling.

    All of that is true, but air cooling has also improved dramatically over the years too. Nowadays, you really only use liquid cooling to make your system a little quieter, or, to reach an extra few hundred MHz that air cooling just can't keep up with. For me, I'd rather save $60+ for an unnoticable performance loss and drown out the extra fan noise with my speakers/headphones.

    Well, on laptop - but my son could use it; so first try was too fast - just found it on the second try.

    I'll never participate in another contest.

    Two years ago I entered contest for OCZ Vertex (without even knowing LOL).
    That was my first contest, And I won, along with my OCZ Test Panel buddies.
    And this sweet SSD came on my door at my birthday(!!!) at the time when I was kinda low. Thank you Hilbert! Thanks OCZ.

    You can't top this, so I am never ever participating in another contest :D :D
