    Before judging people, try to know who they are and what they learnt at school. And for your information I'm reading a book about resonance, sound frequency, etc.

    I know what reosnance is, but truly .... what's the percentage of chance for it to happen ? And even if it happens, just adjust a little the fan speed to change the frequency of the vibrations.

    But again, this is a design contest, vibration, resonance, is the job of engineers and the inner structure should be build according to the rest of the case, but this is out of the scope of this contest.

    Resonance is always a question of right frequency. If you're afraid of it, then I hope you'll awoid all bridges, building, etc, because everything can resonate.

    do you really think that this is a problem ? (the fan noise) who is gonna buy this case will not think at the same problem as you do.
    if it where up to me i would'va put 8+6 delta 252 cfm just to be sure i have the best watercooling rig.for silent computing you have other choices and also radiators......

    Sure the Proteus is a good design but far too big; going for the Black Owl ;)

    black owl easy.

    many of the entries look as through they have aimed to 'design their own build' rather than 'design a case'

    black owl looks amazing!

    They should just make them all! All four would be worthy winners.

    you're right,because if it makes only black owl all this time spend on this thread it will be a waste.
    what are the conditions to vote for proteus(in this poll)?
    i want at least this,to know that i gave one vote to one of the most imressive cases from this contest.

    I think, it's better to make both Proteus and Black Owl.

    Come on guys.. vote vote vote!

    i think they should make all 4 finalists tbh they are all amazing designs, im sure they would all sell well as they all have unique looks that will appeal to different people. i was amazed the first time i saw the proteus and ive backed it all the way in this competition.

    If they have to make all 4 of them, than there is no point of making this competition.

    From the voting, we can see that Gladio and Roboduck is losing 2/3 of votes against Phobia and Black Owl. I just feel that since Phobia and Black Owl is such a close finished, they both deserve to be made.

    Last time to vote. It's finaly coming to an end. I remember joining this contest in november. It has been a very stressing time, but also very interesting and i learned a lot. I'm glad I came to know you, guys, a little and I wish good luck to them. Razer, Robo, don't be disapointed by the result your work was very good : ).

    I wish to see all those design in the project log.

    Congratulations to SnowyOwl for winning the competition :)

    And well done to Mick, Razer and Roboduck for make it this far :)

    Pity we won't see Proteus built this time, it's been a long wait and it has been so close to seeing the light of day so many times...

    Oh well, such is life :)
