    "Power Users" is a loose definition. No one was obligated to pull their name out of the running. Totally your option CP. :D

    Mmmmm, Buck likes the 8 expansion slots on that case. I'm sure I could find some dual-slot GPU goodness to fill it with....;)

    well I dont think i've been a power user lately. But i'm still top 10 although thats rapidly changing. So for this one i'm out, i'll leave it up to someone else to take the case :D

    I just bought a Cooler Master HAF 932 that arrived today so you can take my name out of the hat. If I got that case I would have to put it in the middle of the floor.:)

    The contest hasn't fizzled as far as I can tell, we should still have 1 month (or so) remainder to get 50000 points. It is a first contest, but its probably more quiet than it should be.

    As a reminder, we're going for an XClio Thisamathinger:

    All I've been doing is keeping track of who is on track to win the prize. I haven't been keeping exact statistics. I've just been too busy to keep a spreadsheet.

    I was afraid I wasn't going to make the 50k req, I guess adding that Quad really helped :D Who ever wins will really enjoy that case!

    Congrats Onry..:rockout: *jealous*

    I spent the better portion of yesterday shopping for cases.

    Can't decide between the antec 1200, xclio 777, or a thermaltake kandalf someone's selling on this board, think I'll go for the used one.
