Competition – Winter 2017: Chance to win some interesting pieces!

How it works...

Thanks to the support of Gigabyte, Akasa, Noctua, and EKWB, you have the opportunity to compete for prizes at HWC for the first time. To make things interesting, we chose atypical components from various “worlds“. Mini-STX motherboard, the large liquid cooling kit, Noctua NH-D15 with the unconventional colour coating Chromax… or would you prefer a passive case?

Basic rules

The rules are very simple. Share something about HWCooling and let us know about it at info@hwcooling.net – subject: “HWC Competition, Winter 2017”. You can send a URL (of a post from some forum for example) or a screenshot and so on. The more creative, the better. Anything that mentions our-your magazine.

We would like to emphasize that quantity is not important, and obvious spamming can put you out of the game. Of course, the intention is to spread the word about HWCooling to more people, but in a beneficial and pleasant way. So try to find related topics and share some of our tests and reviews. We recommend previous extra tests (September, October).

The prizes

  • Mini-STX motherboard, the smallest format for any Skylake/Kaby Lake processor (with TDP up to 65 W) – Gigabyte GA-H110MSTX-HD3.
  • Passive case for selected Mini-ITX boards – Akasa Euler MX with 80W power supply.

   

   

The first two can choose

From the received messages that meet the above conditions, we will pick three random lucky people on December 24 and contact them via email. The first winner can choose from Gigabyte GA-H110N, Akasa Euler MX, and Noctua NH-D15. The second winner can choose from the remaining two products, and the third will receive what’s left.

It is not going to be just about luck. The competitor with the most effective sharing will get the main prize – EKWB EK-KIT X360.

“Modern desktop based on Mini-STX” by HWCooling.net

It’s strange, but desktop computers have been stagnant for over twenty years. In most cases, they are still built on the ATX standard in “oversized“ towers. From a rational point of view, however, such a concept should be marginal and replaced by SFF. A traditional PC can be tiny, powerful, and silent at the same time. And its equipment does not have to limit you. Read more ““Modern desktop based on Mini-STX” by HWCooling.net” »

Passive case Akasa Euler MX: 70 W of heat? Go ahead…

Along with low power consumption chips, silent computers are also expanding. The British company Akasa has been specializing in the development of cases optimal for this purpose for the last few years. We have put their most progressive model through editorial hell. After exploring every corner and measuring temperatures in all possible positions, we can say what it can and cannot do. To give you a better idea, we are providing thermal vision too.
