To the voters:
Please take the time to consider each entry based on the merit of the design and how well it meets the goal of being a "case designed for water cooling."
Please do not vote just for your friends' entry, or the design that's been rendered the nicest. This is not a beauty contest, nor a popularity contest. There are or have been good designs that have fallen behind because people are voting for the wrong reasons. With as few voters as this contest has been getting, gaming the votes, even by a just a few, can have a real impact on the outcome. I would hope that people would want the best designs to make it through, and put aside their own self-interest.

That is why I make it a point -not- to tell family or friends when I am engaged in a competition unless it is for charity.
Either way, This has been a true learning experience, and like Guile mentioned - many long nights trying to figure out how to "draw" surfaces without using pen or paper
"And may the best design win!"

Good luck everyone, I feel honoured to have taken part in this comp. :D
