Phobya Design a Case Competition - Stage 1

Phobya Design a Case Competition - Stage 1

Scores of bit-tech's most talented modders turned their attention to case design last month as they strived to design the perfect case for water-cooling. The motivation? To have their case professionally built and kitted-out by water-cooling manufacturer Phobya.

The competition is split into three stages - the first being a concept stage where the designers received feedback from the community on their initial designs regarding aspects such as radiator placement, size and features. Stage one is now complete and before we move on to stage two, where the designs will continue, we're handing things over to you.

There were over 30 fantastic entries, each as different as the last.

We need you to vote for your favourite five designs. You should consider the following when voting:
  • Number of radiators that can be installed
  • Efficiency of radiator locations
  • Space for other components (pumps, reservoirs etc)
  • Flexibility (multiple PSU mounts, radiator locations etc)
  • Efficient use of space
  • Airflow
  • Attractiveness

The ten best designs will go through to stage 2 where they'll progress their work and make any last major changes before the final stage. Take a look at the following pages and vote for your favourite five designs.
