    Hi Guys,

    AusPC has put together a contest with BitFenix to give you a chance to win a free case for your next PC.

    The contest is pretty simple - design an awesome PC using a BitFenix case at the AusPCMarket website, and the best two designs will win a free case when judged at the end of the month!


    How it works:

    1. Visit AusPC and configure your dream PC using a BitFenix chassis by building up a shopping cart with all the bits you'd use.

    2: Save your Cart in the "View Cart" screen, and contact AusPC with your login email address, the name of your saved cart, and a few notes explaining why you chose the parts you did.

    3: Optionally: If you have a Facebook account, go to the BitFenix Facebook page and "Like" the page.


    The competition will close 5.00PM on the 31st of May 2011, and you can enter up to 5 dream configs per email account. AusPC will then judge the best PC configs submitted, based on the value and functionality of the system, consistent with the purpose of the design given in the entrant's notes.

    AusPC will list the configs up on the AusPCMarket web site as system combos people can actually buy, with credit to the system designers, including any notes they gave for the system design brief.

    The winners will also have the option of buying a full PC's worth of gear to go into their case, at a discounted price.

    More info at AusPC's site - if you have any questions, or want to discuss configs, please do so in this thread.

    If you don't like Facebook, or don't have a login there, you can skip that part - I won't mind and it won't affect your entry.

    You have to design the PC config, so that the parts all make sense together, and fufill a specific purpose, eg max performance CRossfire rig, or quietest desktop etc.

    I was hoping it was something like this. Design a tower for your needs or something. Not build system #4231413.

    It doesn't have to be the most expensive system you can imagine - as long as it makes sense.

    I emailed mine just then. Pure gaming case that will see the next 5+ years. Spend it all in one go and don't look at spending in between system like we all do :p

    I have one of these cases. I like it :thumbup: Plenty of room for cable management and takes 4 graphics cards. Completely tool-less and has a unique lighting effect (if that is your thing).

    No, it doesn't.
    it's optional.

    I'm going through right now, making some configs...

    Any hints on what you guys are looking for?

    I'm posting some of the entries at the AusPC site under Systems->Crowd-Sourced Systems.

    The more detail you put into it, explaining the choice of parts, the better it'll be.
