    Antec? I disagree. Other than that the awards went to right addresses.

    This, I agreed with every other one apart from antec. I just don't like their cases, I think it was the 13 year old 900 brigade that put me off their entire range. Obviously there are a few notable exceptions. Corsair seem to do no wrong, since owning corsair ram and a psu, I am theirs for life :p

    Nowai! You would be hard pressed to find something that cools as well as a freezer 7 pro for as cheap and as quietly with such a long warranty.
    Also the accelero s1 rev2 is epic for the price.

    This is the CPC and bit-tech awards 2009. The Freezer 7 Pro was released something like 4 years ago, maybe with a few minimal revisions since, so it doesn't deserve to win an award in 2009 on the basis of that product. Not when companies like Noctua, Titan and Prolimatech have been making such advances in the field.

    It's cheap, yes, but its performance in both noise and performance tests is now way, way behind the pack, many which cost not much more. Also note that it won the "Overclocking and Cooling award", where surely the product with the best cooling and ability to cope with high overclocks should win, not the cheapest.

    These awards are voted for by enthusiasts, so I expect to see enthusiast products (which generally cost a bit more than mainstream products) win the awards.

    Only a ginger can call another ginger ginger, therefore you must also be ginger as we suspected!

    Scan won the best RMA? I find that surprising considering the list of complaints we have seen here against them. Then again perhaps we only see the bad, and the good outweight them.

    I can find no flaw in this logic. Thus Mankz must truley be ginger.

    It's probably not that surprising...

    scan are quite well linked with bit-tech - http://forums.bit-tech.net/forumdisplay.php?f=84

    and with the bit-tech/cpc link and scan being cpc's biggest advertiser, it wouldn't do well to overlook the company that pays the bills ;)

    Now now. If anyone seriously thinks there's truth in that is a pillock. Yes Scan are one of our long time advertisers but they haven't always won. Last year was a case in question - Novatech took the trophy. Besides, Scan has made some big improvements to their store over the last 12 months.

    It's as Rkiver says
    I've seen the same complaints about Ebuyer, Novatech and Overclockers and personally I've never had issues with any of them and I used to buy a lot of stuff - even from the latter.

    Since scan gave me free delivery for life at the I series I haven't used anyone else and they stock more high end than ebuyer at lower prices than overclockers

    Congrats Corsair, on the PSU award... but are you going to share that with Seasonic and Channel Well Technology (CWT) ??? They actually made your PSUs (by last info).

    Technically voted "Best CPU Rebrander 2009" then? ;)
