Chill out. At 50 posts you can either still be a noob or be very advanced, completely depending on your entry level and the level of your posts.

That's exactly why I joined. To participate. I've been reading a lot of Overclock3d's work on water cooling by now, but didn't really need to post and had a lot of time to help others out. That's what you get when you're a mod of two hardware review forums and a full-time life Quote

Yeah, especially the 'real time life' part takes up a darn lot of time :P

pistyll this comp has ended and the winner is Oddball.

Perhaps the following should be taken on board in the future to avoid confusion. Once the competition has reached an end close the thread and create a new one naming the winner in which everyone can leave their comments.

Works well on another forum I am on Quote

I went for the skeleton as it was compact and different and don't regret it one bit I love it, mine hasn't needed to be dusted only had it about 3 weeks, when it will it should be easy.Quote
