Contest: Win a Corsair Case, SSD, PSU Combo!

It's the week leading up to Halloween, and Tom's Hardware has teamed up with Corsair to make things extra festive. Obviously, there's nothing spooky about PC hardware (though there have been some unsolved mysteries from troubleshooting), so we're going to play around with candy instead.

The object here is to guess to the best of your ability the number of Halloween candy corns that are inside the Corsair 800D case pictured below. To aid you in your estimates, the dimensions of the case are 24.00" x 9.00" x 24.00", so give it your best shot!

The contest will run starting Monday, October 26, 2009 and will close on Friday, November 6, 2009. The grand prize is as follows:

1.       Corsair Obsidian Series 800D Case

2.       Corsair HX850 Power Supply

3.       Corsair Hydro Series H50 Cooler

4.       128 GB Corsair Extreme Series SSD

There will also be 3 runner up prizes of Corsair 32GB Voyager USB Flash Drives.

The winner is the person who comes closest to the actual number of candy corns in the case maintained by Corsair as pictured above. In the case of if more than one entrant guesses correctly, then a random drawing will determine the winner.

Click here for the contest rules and entry form. Good luck and happy Halloween!

See the filling of the case at YouTube.
