    Congratulations to Snowy. It will be interesting to see how the design evolves.

    I wonder how long its going to take Phobya to produce this.

    If its any gauge, Combatus said in November that Phobya already had a case designed, and that one hasn't even hit stores yet. :grr:

    You know... I could've sworn that it didn't start out as a "sponsorship voucher"... as I remember it, it was simply a gift certificate for that amount at Aquatuning. Changing it to a "sponsorship voucher" implies the prize is contingent on being used in a project build, giving AT sponsorship publicity. Nothing wrong with that per se, problem I would have with that is the change in terms sometime after the start of the contest. I don't recall anyone mentioning it. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong about any of this (or, conversely, remembers it like I do). Otherwise... shame on you guys. :nono:

    It has always been called this - we have no way to edit a bit-tech article.

    All it means is the £50/£100 has to be spent on Phobya products.

    @ Razer / Mick you will receive the information shortly.

    It's disappointing that Mick's case lost by a single vote. BlackOwl seems like a case only designed to take a single quad rad - seems like a waste, after months of a design competition. Hopefully someone picks up Proteus.

    I wasn't going to mention this, but while on the subject of competition terms, I was under the impression that Phobya was going to make the final decision on the winner from the top 3 in the final stage.

    This is a quote from Nitrix in the first post of the Phobya water-cooled case design thread - FINAL STAGE :-

    You will have 4 weeks to complete this stage. After that point the community will vote for the top 3 designs. Then these 3 designs will be forward to phobya to pick the winner.

    If this changed, I must of missed it and I apologise, but it's been niggling me since no one has mentioned it.

    This was mentioned a few pages back in this thread - apparently, because I withdrew they changed the whole final round; instead of voting for three favorites, it was just one vote, and instead of choosing from the top three, it was winner-take-all. The first sort of makes sense (it would've been a little odd to vote for three of only four choices), but the latter I'm not so sure about.

    IMO, it would maybe have made more sense to choose between the top two. Though at this point, it wouldn't be fair to SnowyOwl to change it, so meh. I know it sucks for you, man - you've been waiting a long time to see your case made. Hope it happens for you soon.

    Proteus by mick64 is the best in my opinion. It has everything I need.
    It has enough space for components and it is ready for water cooling.
    If it should be on the market I would buy it immediately, because I'm stacking a new computer.

    Is it ready for your computer, or is it just a case?
    If it was a simple case, it would be better.:thumb:

    Mick64 would win, because his computer case is simply the best ever.

    My selection is Proteus by mick64.
    Because it is just the right size, and undue delay efficient cooling.
    If it should be on the market I would buy it immediately, because I'm building a new computer.
    I've also noticed that there are very few decent water cooling computer case. Here it is.

    @Mick64, with close to a 1000 posts, and over 100,000 views on the original thread for your case design on xtremesystems, I'm shocked that you didn't get 100 votes.
