The Contest

Welcome to the Stock Cooling Showdown, brought to you by CableMod, Gigabyte, and Intel!

The Stock Cooling Showdown looks for the best air-cooled and AIO-cooled (all-in-one) PC builds. This is the AIO cooling division, where only AIO-cooled systems can be entered. For the air cooling division, click here.

This contest features two ways to win, as outlined below. By entering the contest, you agree to the official contest rules, terms, and conditions.

A big thank you to Antec, be quiet!, CableMod, Gigabyte, Fractal Design, Florpad, noblechairs, Thermal Grizzly, and XPG for helping to make this competition possible!

Your Contest

To enter this contest with your build, you need to first login or sign up. Then, simply prepare and publish your build!


The Voting

Once you start voting, we will randomly show you builds that have entered the contest. If you like the build that is displayed, simply click "VOTE!" and you will see the next random build. If you do not like the build that is currently displayed, simply click "NEXT" to be shown another random build.

Method 1: Be in the Top 3

This contest is based on the number of community votes each build receives. The three AIO-cooled builds with the most votes at the end of the contest will share $2,000 in prize money. Here is the prize distribution:

First Place: $1,000 USD
Second Place: $600 USD
Third Place: $400 USD

Each account is limited to entering one build, and you can enter the contest at any time. However, voting begins on April 18, which means the sooner you enter, the sooner your build can start receiving votes from the community.

Method 2: Participation Prizes

Of course, not everyone has elite PC building skills, but that doesn't mean you can't win! By entering a build, or voting on your favorite builds, you will be entered into a random draw for a bevy of hardware prizes. Here's a list of prizes up for grabs:

To qualify for participation prizes, simply vote on at least 10 builds entered into the contest. Every 10 builds you've reviewed (either by voting or by passing) counts as one ballot. The more you vote, the more chances you have to win! Remember - you can also earn ballots by voting on builds in the air cooling division, which can be found here.

Everyone who has entered a build into either contest will also receive 5 ballots towards the random draw.
