I vote for the dragon too (Hey Stupid!, the contest is over and you even aren't a Judge jack*ss!)
But the winning design would be great in physic pvc shape, rather than a stamp.

I thought the same thing -- it would be cool if HIS actually shaped the cooler to match the design...

think of the demographics. most of the judges were from AMD and HIS, so they're quite likely a lot older, and more conservative than we are. old people just dont like dragons as much as we do :D

(probably related to a hot video card having FIRE on its cooler too... hehe)
That's really a silly statement ! ..... :eek:

it definitely wasn't obscene lmao, i do feel there were more...artistic? designs but none the less props to you as the majority of the judges obviously felt like your design was what they were looking for. good job
