THERE IS NO LONGER A DEADLINE OR A CONTEST. THE COUPON WILL LAST FOREVER. WE WILL SIMPLY GATHER TOGETHER AT REGULAR INTERVALS AND GIVE OUT PRIZES FOR THOSE WHO MAKE PARTICULARLY COOL WORKLOGS. EVERYONE YAY!!! MAKE COOL STUFF!!

PLEASE READ THIS IF YOU ARE INTERNATIONAL AND WANT TO PURCHASE QFR TOP CASES: http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=48030.msg1048915#msg1048915


Hi folks!

Happy slightly belated sixth birthday, Geekhack!

To celebrate this momentous ocassion, I've worked closely with Carter and CM-Rajiv at CM Storm to provide everyone an awesome bonus just for participating in the contest, and then to make sure that the prize is primarily recognition as The Most Awesome Person on Geekhack, and not some swag that means much less than being most awesome in this awesome community.

So here's how this collaboration went. First, imagine me driving 50 miles across LA into the middle of nowhere. This is, unfortunately, where Coolermaster is headquartered. On the upside, no traffic! I had a frankly brilliant idea on the way there: what if they gave away quickfire rapid case tops at cost to everyone! We could have a contest for doing the most creative and awesome thing to a quickfire rapid top case and everyone gets really cheap top cases!

So, arriving in the middle of nowhere, I get to the door and am quickly greeted by CM-Rajiv, who is _one_ of the most awesome people on geekhack. We go up to a conference room and chat for a minute while Carter brings his puppy in WHO IS THE CUTEST PUPPY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH

ok where was I, oh yah, contest

I present my contest idea and they look at each other and say "WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT HAVING EXACTLY THIS CONTEST FOR MONTHS". It was meant to be.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Click on this link: http://www.cmstore-usa.com/search.php?search_query=quickfire+rapid
Click on "Quickfire Rapid Replacement Top Panel"

Add UP TO TWO OF EACH COLOR TO YOUR CART. The limit is two. One is less than the limit, zero is silly, Two is the limit.

Click on "View Cart" at the upper right corner of the page. You should have between 1 and 4 items in your cart. You can have more, but they can't be top cases, and I have no idea what will happen with your shipping costs.

CORRECTION/ADDITION: CLICK ON ESTIMATE SHIPPING BELOW YOUR ORDER TOTAL BEFORE ENTERING THE COUPON CODE

On the left side of the page, scroll down and enter 'ghanniversary' in the coupon code field. Click on "GO" below that field.

CHECKOUT! The cases are 5 dollars each with free shipping anywhere in the CONUS.

OK, I HAVE FOUR CASES WHAT DO I DO

Well, you do the same thing we do every day here. MAKE SOMETHING AWESOME. I don't care if it's a mixed media sculpture, a keyboard, or a robotic sifo. It could also be a robotic binge, but if it is, it has to be MORE awesome than a robotic sifo.

OK, REAL RULES:

1) You cannot DEFACE the CM Storm logo on the case into anything vulgar. I will delete your entry AND make fun of you for being disrespectful. You can completely remove the logo, you can make the logo MORE AWESOME or you can leave it alone. Those are your three options. Choose one.

2) You must make something awesome. If you're not sure what this means, I have several educational films you might want to check out. (i) Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, 1,2,3 and the animated series. (ii) Back to the Future 1-3. I don't know if there is an animated series but if there is, watch it. (iii) The Three Ninjas 1-6. I don't know if there were six movies, but if there were, watch them.

3) You must post pictures and write about what you make and post it on geekhack. The threads for this will go in a forum in this category called "Making CM Storm Quickfire Rapid Top Cases Together Yay!" BECAUSE YOU'RE MEANT TO BE WORKING TOGETHER! See? I love community, SO BE A COMMUNITY. THAT'S AN ORDER. I don't care what you write or what you take pictures of, just post something and be awesome. If you need a primer on being awesome, see above.

PRIZES:

1st Prize: Smoke detector, fresh battery (or is it?) signed by iMav himself. iMav may or may not punch a wall before signing it. He is currently renovating a house, so he has plenty of walls he can punch at will.

2nd Prize: Maybe a keyboard. Maybe a napkin. Definitely a prize.

3rd Prize: Quickfire Rapid Keyboard, signed by someone. I won't tell you who will sign it beforehand. It could be 2pac, it could be Michael Jackson, it could be my landlord; I don't know, so you don't know.

Everyone prize: Very possibly mumble mumble discount mumble mumble.

Random prize: Bobcat Tractor Trailer. I'm trying really hard to make this happen, so make sure you have room for one.

The contest term will be from today 8/23 to next month, 9/23 TBA. You can and should start your worklogs asap so that you can share tips on hacking away at plastic and rubberized coatings.

The judges will be CM-Rajiv, Carter, and the admin team. We will debate the winners over a chat based medium, with the moderator team being our peanut gallery, then publish the discussion so that the decision is transparent. I will state that no matter who wins, everyone will win, and then someone will win, but so will everyone else. At the end of the contest on 9/23 TBA, CM Storm will announce something something mumble discount something?

OK, GO BUY CASES AND MAKE THEM AWESOME.

Note that Canadian shipping looks to be pretty cheap, and I have a limited number of cases EXACTLY TWO CASES that I can ship internationally if you are particularly creative and in a country that is not well served by CM Store's shipping costs. Please PM me if that's the case. A number of cases have gone out already this way.

OK GOGOGOGOGOGOG

Shipping is free, but not at the $5 a case price! $20 for 4, yes. $40 for 4, :(

Awesome, I was just about to buy a bunch of these last week. :D

Any idea on what the CM's stock of these is like? As in, is there any reason worry about them running out if I don't order ASAP? I'm going to be out of town for the next week, and I'd rather not risk having them sit on my porch for days.

Looks like shipping to Canada could be roughly $10 (just estimated using 15oz weight for a couple covers in a box, 16" x 8" x 3").  I can help with those if you'd like.

I ordered two tops almost the same day this event was announced, but the covers appear to be backordered -- mine still have not shipped. And yes, is there a deadline for the contest? Nevermind! I should read the thread first, eh? 9/28 is deadline.

there's some kind of gigantic jenga game being played with the shipping departments to make this contest happen, so please excuse CM for fulfilling a little slowly. we had to mobilize their resources in an unusual way to get the volume out quickly. you may not get tracking, but fingers crossed, your stuff should show up quickly regardless. if you ordered when the contest _first leaked_ however, that may have thrown them for a loop.

OK, so since no one's stepped up who needs a case and is super international, i'm going to hold onto these last two i have as hot spares.

IF YOU RUN THROUGH THE CASES YOU BOUGHT OR WERE SENT AND NEED ANOTHER CASE TO WORK WITH i will send you one. anywhere in the world. gratis. the only trick is that you have to keep a log so we can see your "mistakes" :)

for reference, these guys have been waiting for their covers for TWO WEEKS. they're stuck in customs :|

and the hilarious thing is i that i shelled out for priority mail express international (3-5 days anywhere in the world) for them :|

there aren't enough rolleyes in the world  to express how unhappy i am about this.

Damn that one British postal worker who intercepts stuff :/

Great - then some anonymous British postal worker gets not only new QFR case tops, but also some neat GPS hardware.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

actually customs gave him a bill for 4 times the declared and real value of the package. sigh. it's been paid. he should have them today or tomorrow and reship them within the UK.

Are the coupons only supposed to be redeemable by those living in the US? I tried applying the code after estimating shipping costs and it said that my shipping address doesn't meet the location requirements. I should probably note that I live in BC, Canada.

yes, the code only applies to US shipping. carter and i are literally talking about how to best serve internationals right now. obviously what i did with the UK folks was a colossal failure; lesson learned, fixes hopefully incoming.

although the end date is still TBA, consider it to be at least 45 days from now if not more. you still have plenty of time to order, receive your order, start experimenting and learn from all the master classes being given in the making qfr tops together forum :)

I think so there is one stand off on the QFR top you have to snip off and you will have to do a little modding to get the cable out the back.

ok i ordered a black one for 5 bucks! i painted my original qfr rapid case baby pink so i am not sure what i want to do with this one. maybe something crazy like what bunnylakes splatter caps look like but on a case. not sure. maybe i should spraypaint it gold or some ****. or maybe white. or maybe sky blue, or maybe....


where are people going to post all the awesome things we do to these cases? i really wish i could get a clear one. that would be awesome.
