OC3D New Year Competition

Win the Aries Cooler MARS 840

 Aries Cooler MARS 840 Competition 


The OC3D New Years Competition has rapidly become a staple fixture of this site. If you recall last year we gave away the amazing Arora Project, which was a £2500 i7 based system stuffed inside a Time To Live Customs modded Lian Li A70 with about the finest, sexiest, paint job this side of, well almost anything.


In January OC3D will be evolving into a fresh modern website with an amazing new look and brand new forums. To mark this momentous occasion OC3D has partnered several manufacturers and TTL once more,  to bring you this years amazing prize.


Regular readers of our forums will be aware of a project log that has recently appeared on the forums call Aries. So far the build has been secretive, but enticing. The odd reveal here. A glimpse of hardware there. As the Cooler Master 840 part of the name suggests, we don't mind showing you the main chassis. So far it has been treated to a high quality internal powder-coat. But what of the rest?

Its been long enough, we cant keep it quiet any longer. Thanks to the guys over at Asus, OC3D have been given the first and only Asus MARS that will ever be given away worldwide!

Oh my god. WOW.

Huge spec here. And in the single greatest case the world has ever seen too. The CM ACTS 840 is just epic. I can't rate it highly enough.

But a TTL custom one? *drroooolllssss*
