BRD111HD:

I wonder why they went with the H80 and not the H100. Not complaining but still i think corsair would put the best cooler they got but never the less its all good.

The H80 is a damn fine cooler. I have one on my PC and it's capable of cooling this CPU without any problems, even if you overclock it.

I've been looking closer at the Silver Graphite 600T case, and man is it bad~ass!

Lots of features packed into it and it's only part of this awesome prize. Smile

WOW!

Would be so cool to get this rig!

My friend recently spent 1 Grand on a computer, which I built for him. I was extremely jealous of it xD

I'm running his old dell inspiron 531, which he gave to me for free because it was "Broken".

He was using it as a footrest and said I could have it.

So I bought a Sapphire Radeon HD 5450 512 MB, (Which is the most powerful graphics card I have ever owned >.>) Plugged it onto the Old "footrest" and it worked fine. Been using it ever since.

If I won, I would finally be able to play the games my friend wants to play, but we cant because My computer is so crappy.

Good Luck everyone! :D

PC Specs:

  • AMD Athlon 64 x2 6400+  Cooled by a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus (push-pull)
  • 2GB DDR2
  • MSI Radeon HD 6450 2GB
  • Stock Dell motherboard
  • 250Gb HDD
  • XFX Pro Core edition 650W PSU
  • Stock Dell inspiron case

I have a question:

How exactly are you guys going to pick the winner?

I was just thinking: "How are they going to see who followed all of the Facebook steps?"

I followed all of the steps, but I don't understand how HotHardware will go and find my personal Facebook profile, and be able to make sure that MY facebook profile, and My hothardware profile are the same person.

Clarification anyone?

Yes I see that, but Z77 is the chipset for the motherboard, im talking about the brand, who makes it, what model, ect.

I believe if you logged in with your Facebook account, that would be a way they would follow and contact you. And I believe the'll follow the comments.

I figured that. But I don't have the answer to your question. Sorry.

Corsair is a great high quality company that produces great products.  I fell in love with the Corsair Vengence 2000 Headset and I have to say that it is AMAZING!!!  This whole rig would be awesome to have, since my current gaming rig has been dead for about a year now.  Can't go wrong with anything from Corsair!!  Hope I win!!!

The only thing i wish these cases had is different shaped windows. Seems everyone goes for simple squares or triangles... Some company's should start mixing them up. Otherwise, great case and hardware, shared everywhere i could. But GL to everyone

I love the case. I personally have the corsair 600t white edition, but the silver edition looks pretty bad ass! I want this rig to add to my already awesome gaming computer. Pick me!
