    Note: The H60 is the original version, not the 2013 revision.

    Sorry, strict US50 Only. Nothing personal- shipping International is just an overall awful experience.

    Nice cooler. I had one before going custom water, and it did a very credible job! :)

    Oh yeah, they are nice. I used one personally and another in a build that I did for a friend. Does a great job, even on i7s.

    Was going to release the X40 Kraken for the giveaway, but thought a 140mm rad would exclude too many people without the proper case to mount it.

    Nice, I hope CP decides to run the cooler on his AMD setup- haven't seen what the thing can do on an AMD CPU. I'll drop him a PM.

    I know that even the older H50 I have does a great job on my 3770k---nearly dead silent at 4GHz. I suspect that a H60 would give similar results on a wide range of CPUs :toast:

    Congrats to the new batch of winners! I just sent t_ski a PM on the headset :)

    I had my H60 on my 2600k @4.5, and it ran nicely. I think I ran the H60 first on my 1090t @4ghz, and it blew away my old Zalman air cooler :D

    Great contribution Dub!

    Thanks to Ion, Norton, and everyone else this is such a good coummunity :toast:
    i'm going to make sure my friend will crunch for sure now that he has won a cpu cooler and a windows 7 key.

    Woot woot! :rockout:

    This might just be what my AMD rig needed to crunch stable since it had heat issues. I sure hope so! Thanks to everyone who made this happen and to all who participated one way or another! :toast:

    Congrats Cap'n :toast:

    The H60 AND an FX-8350 will put your ppd way up there.... otherwise, the H60 by itself will keep the temps of that 8120 nice and low (even overclocked) :)

    I hope t_ski is alright. I PMd about the Orca headset that he won, but it shows that he hasn't logged in in 2 days. Anyway, I trust all is well with him, and I'll hang onto the headset for him, at least for a few more days :)
