It's been nearly two weeks since we announced Phobya's case design competition
, which is exclusive to bit-tech's
forums. The response has been huge, with the Stage 1 design thread already sporting nearly 20 pages filled with fantastic concepts of cases all designed to be water-cooling friendly.
If you missed the article, Phobya is offering you the chance to have the water-cooled case of your dreams made and kitted out with water-cooling gear.
Here the other prizes you can win:
- a £100 Aquatuning sponsorship voucher
- a £50 Aquatuning sponsorship voucher.
All you have to do is post a design of what you believe to be the perfect case for water cooling in this thread
. Make sure you read the initial article first though for handy hints and tips.
Here are some of our favourite concepts which have been discussed in detail so far:
Forum users a-dub and motas opted for cube-like tower designs but both are very different
anakha has started work on a bulbous tower while xs_rise has gone all futuristic with his design called Liquibox
Forum regular editor22 has gone all asymmetric with this fantastic-looking cube while recent Mod of the Month winner, razer2007 has opted for a widened tower design to obtain room for huge radiators
zesti has moved all the hard disks to the backpanel to make room for all his water-cooling gear while demolisher has designed a huge cube-shaped case with a cavernous interior.
subtec has thought ahead and considered general airflow in his design as well as making room for a huge radiator in the roof. One of bit-tech's most talented renders, roboduck, has been hard at work on this superb white tower which has plenty of room for water-cooling hardware.
Finally, jrs77 has already entered his final design having come up with what appears to be a partly modular case which he claims to have 10 drive bays, five locations for a triple 120mm-fan radiator and three possible PSU mounts making it extremely flexible.
You have until 28th November
to post your design
