    Thermaltake Level 10 GT

    The folks at Techgage are hosting a contest. The winner takes home a Thermaltake Level 10 GT case.

    I can't participate since I'm from neither USA or Canada. But thought you folks would like the hint. It's -- from all I've been reading -- an absolutely fantastic computer case with superior build and cooling. The design comes from a partnership between Thermaltake and BMW. They also have a review, which you can check out.

    To participate you don't even need to register. You can post anonymously on the board to enter. Not something you hear everyday these days, eh. The link for the contest is here. Don't forget to read the Rules and Regulations section further down.

    If anyone from CBoard wins, I'd totally would love to know.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Nice case, radical design... But you may want to give some thought to having all your components installed in thermally isolated enclosures... The big saving grace in eliminating "hot spots" is lots and lots of airflow...

    How hot do you want your disk drives to get?

    Yeah. That was sort of the problem with the first Level 10 they shown sometime ago.

    This one is actually one big area inside, despite the apparent compartments design. Airflow is nothing short of amazing with three 200mm and one 140mm fans covering pretty much all your needs (with an integrated speed controller; just press the button).

    Which of course means nothing if the air passages to the hard disks are something like 1/4" holes...

    Yeah it's a super duper case, no doubt of that... but I'd bet a $39.00 tinfoil special has better drive cooling...

    Ok. They just opened the contest to Europe and Asia!

    I'm so going to participate! Best of luck anyone who wants to join.

    EDIT: Europe and Australia. Not Europe and Asia. My bad.

    Less than a day. Good luck if everyone joined. But I take it from the lack of responses, no one cared for this context. Fair enough.
    It's a superb case, lauded by almost all reviewers though... so, anyways... yeah, good luck.
