Winner #3 - Corsair H70

We don't just go leaping onto the gaming floor to drag people away either. Sometimes they come to us and we're delighted to help. One such person was 17 year old James Powell from Burton-upon-Trent.

James was having issues with his CoolerMaster case and it sounded like too much heat. So we popped along to have a look and, well see for yourselves.

James has had his rig for a year and never removed the dust. It's not like the Intel stock cooler is much to write home about even in prime condition, but this is the type of dust bunny that even myxomatosis wouldn't cure.

Thanks to our good friends at Corsair James is now the proud owner of a much quieter and cooler Corsair H70, along with a fan from NZXT giving him push/pull goodness. Remember people, dust in fins doesn't aid cooling.

Lucky mofo. I am stuck with crappy DDR2 800MHZ ram at the moment. I could badly do with that ram upgrade. My case and PSU are good though. Im going to try and get a core I5 upgrade soon with 2x GTX480 , but it will take me 6 months to pay for it.Quote

Only just managed to check up on the i40 coverage. Great job Tom & Lasher - Enjoyed seeing an insiders view of the event! Tom sounds proper rough at the end!

Love that case you gave away to Terry Carr. You couldn't have chosen a more deserving winner for it.Quote

Evening all, Terry Carr here,

Just a note to say thanks to the guys at OC3D. The new case is working wonders and with a few tips from Tom around my memory not being set up correctly, I now have a faster rig as well.

Rebecca is loving it and has asked if next year you guys might upgrade her pink one. Its hard to explain to a 7yr old that she has a slim chance but shes loving it all the same.

Thanks again guys it is much appreciated.Quote
