Wow, that is a good looking setup. someone will be glad to get this. Is this open to Canadians like me? Im not usually all that lucky, so I dont expect to win, but damn, this would save me a lot of money (without a rig right now).

Their contests usually are open to Canadians, you just have to cover the import duties. Right Manduh?

Of course I'd love to win this system, but I gotta say that HH is great at diving me the newsy bits on the things I like. Namely hardware.

I've upgraded many components using Corsair products and think they are very quality products.

Question, how many Baa Baa Black Sheep references does Corsair get in a week?
