    Ohhh thanks for this competition! I happen to be a CAD guy. Worldwide too! Will see a submission from me.

    Edit: Where can we get dimensions of the existing memory and fins?

    We're getting them.

    So far the DHX+ heatsinks are 8mm wide, hole centre point is 4mm from the edge. The end holes are 8mm in, and the centre one is 62.5mm from the end. The screw thread width is 2mm.

    How long is the actual DHX unit though? I think I might whip something up for this compo,

    Center hole being 62.5mm from the edge. The whole unit would be 125mm long.

    Thanks for those dimensions Bindi.

    Multiple entries are disqualified? What if I send one entry with a buttload of designs? I'm a shotgun technique designer.

    something fun to do over the break from uni.

    I will definitely send in an entry!


    also, thanks for the worldwide competition guys, especially with such a focus on innovation rather than something more simple. this is precisely what bit was founded for (innovation in the modding community).


    :D

    You'll be getting a headscrewing entry from myself. I hope you like surrealist layouts.

    Is this a general contest. Or is it exclusive to BT?

    Not sure what you mean, but the competition is open to all bit-tech readers. :)

    by the way, i assume that ownership of the designs ends up with Corsair, and we can derive no rights from Corsair actually implementing any of it?

    I mean, i don't mind, but i'm really missing this kind of statement from the terms and conditions...
    Also, will all designs be published afterwards? i'm really curious :) Published by you or Corsair?
