The Contest

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

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 air-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 builds.gg 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:

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