I know I said this is a niche market item (and I still believe that) but I'm curious to see how it will handle my 4 SilenX iXtrema's.

I'm game.

If posting in this thread is a requirement (although I don't see it listed) then I like our chances guys.

***EDIT: Good luck. Based on the number of Retweets I'd say 3 in 18 are pretty good odds.

18 people along with myself retweeted the Techgage posting but only the three of us posted here. I guess they just don't really love shiny tech.

Yep...I suppose I should have simplified that though. My junior high teacher would be pissed. 3 out of 18? Nah. 1 out of 6.

See you at summer skool!

I think I liked my odds before you starting calculating things to the nearest hundreth excellent odds none the less. I would love to be able to see the temps while sitting at my desk and it would be nice to be able to adjust things without having to bend down to look at my case.

I don't leave my computer on very often. Last night was probably the first night in about 3 months and I clued into how loud it is. It's mostly the woosh of air since I have 5 fans plus the heatsink. This would let me dial things down to a minimum at night and then back up when I'm gaming.

Pick me!

Alright... I am not sure when I'll use Twitter as the place to hold a contest again. It's so time-consuming to find all of the entrants through it... ugh. Not to mention all of the times I received this message just while looking through:

Please wait a moment and try again. For more information, check out Twitter Status



That said, the three names that our randomizer approved of are:

porcupiny
xXDarkHollowXx
eunoia

Congrats!
