Hey guys.

Thanks for your interest.  I believe that you post your answers in the Youtube comments thread.  That way, they can read them - instead of just us!  Thanks again and good luck.  CoolIT is a great company (and a sponsor of Weekly Tech Update)!!

On the youtube, under the Vantage overview video it sais:

Which website did you access this contest through? You actually need to post your entry on their website to win, as the contest is being run directly through the sites themselves.

Thanks!

- CoolIT

So i guess it means we can post here.

Here goes:
I`m already a fan on fb page.
1. Cooling performance and noise level.
2. It`s easy to use and it offers a very good cooling performance. It`s really nice that it keeps you informed about everything you need to know in temps, rpm...
3. Manufacturers website.


Thanks a lot.

My entry:

1. the most important thing is to cool the cpu properly and of course keep the temps low.
2. watter cooling capability and the fact that you don`t need your all case full of wires and pumps. that customized display is awesome.
3. magazines and friends.

Great giveaway, by the way!

1. Performance. I'm not into flash and would rather let the number shown in the temperature monitoring application do the talking although this thing is mighty purdy.
2. It's universal for Intel folks. There's nothing worse than finding out something sweet isn't compatible with your gear.
3. Vendor websites to see what's available followed by manufacturer websites to see the exact specs followed by review website to get an idea of how it performs. I'm a budget builder so nothing gets my money unless it's worth it.

Q: What is the most important feature in a CPU cooler?
A: A consistent cooling effect all over the CPU, as well as high performance of cooling ability

Q: What do you like most about the Vantage ALC [as seen in the video]?
A: LCD display is brilliant for having an accurate realtime readout of temperature and simplifies things like additional temp monitors being unnecessary. Brilliant for custom system builders :).

Q: What resources do you typically use to research CPU coolers when trying to make a decision on which one to buy [i.e. this website, magazines, friends and family, manufacturers website, etc.]
A: Always visit XtremeSystems for a quick perusal of the latest hardware, then pay a visit to some watercooling shops (i.e. TheCoolingShop, Petra's, etc.) to do a quick scan of pricing/availability and then will usually start a shopping list and mock up a diagram to see where things should/will go.

1: Most important feature of a cpu cooler is its cooling performance.

2: I like about Vantage ALC CPU cooler is that it exhausts the air out of the case

3:When making research on which CPU cooler to buy, I prefer to read and compare several reviews from the hardware reviewing websites.

The performance of the cooler and/or in comparison to noise levels.

2) What do you like most about the Vantage ALC [as seen in the video]?
How easy it is to install and use. Not only that the "bling" effect also gives it an interesting look in comparison to other coolers.

3) What resources do you typically use to research CPU coolers when trying to make a decision on which one to buy [i.e. this website, magazines, friends and family, manufacturers website, etc.]
I use everything available on the internet. Various websites/blogs, forums such as XS, friends who have used it and CPU magazine.

1. Quality quality quality. If it leaks on my components, that's thousands of dollars gone.
2. I like the monitoring because I'm all about overclocking to the max and fine tuning every degree.
3. I read reputable, popular enthusiast review sites that overclock, mod, benchmark etc, such as BCC Hardware.

I bagged the one from Hardware Heaven so that just leaves BCC Hardware I think.  I should have posted that earlier so you could remove me from the list of entrants.

Dang guys - I epically failed on this one. It had nothing to do with CoolIT Systems at all.  BCC was responsible to pick the winner - my understanding was they were.  So I'll draw from random.org right now and post up very shortly.
