What happens in Vegas... we'll share with you all here! (+ a giveaway!)

Hey all,

I'm excited to share that SFF Network will have our largest-ever crew on-location at CES 2019 this week! As the conference progresses, be sure to check out the forum and SFF Network for updates from us as we prowl the show floor, looking for what's next in the SFF space (and maybe-probably-definitely getting into the occasional shenanigans).

In celebration of the exciting week to come, I'd also like to kick off what is probably our biggest giveaway to date! On the workshop table we have a collection of pretty solid gear to give out, including:

One (1)
Silverstone CS280 NAS chassis... for that 60TB media library you've always wanted but never had the room for.

Two (2)
Silverstone SX650-G PSUs... for a new SFF build that's truly without compromise.

One (1)
Corsair h115i RGB Platinum 280mm AIO... for people without taste. Erm, I mean, for people who like lights and colors and stuff, I guess. No judgement here.

One (1)
Noctua C14S... For efficient-as-hell cooling, whether you care about performance or acoustics.

One (1)
ASRock X399m... For when 16 cores just isn't enough.

To enter the giveaway, simply share in this thread what you're looking forward to this year – be it SFF related or not! Standard T's and C's apply below. We will draw one winner for each of the prizes sometime next week. Entries will be closed on Friday, January 11, 2019 at 11:59 EST.

Giveaway is open worldwide, except where prohibited. No purchase is necessary to enter. Shipping will be paid for by SFF Network, a division of Minutiae Media. Any taxes or Customs charges are the responsibility of the winner. Minutiae Media reserves the right to send the prize without tracking at winner's risk if shipping costs an arm and a leg. No hardware other than what's specified is included. Standard terms and conditions apply.

Kinda (hoping) looking forward to this being the year I build my G4 cube project. I've had it since new, and it isn't getting any more powerful sitting in it's box. I've always liked SFF even back then.

I'm thrilled about those rumours about low TDP CPU's and GPU's from AMD and surely hope they come out true. I like gaming but don't need the high end stuff so being able to have GTX 1060's performance at 75W and 6c/12t at 50W sounds perfect to come up with a very small brickless build inside of something like a Lone L5 or alike.

-Deskmini A300 and Z390
-Stuff from Alphacool:
- Alphacool NexXxoS V.2 Radiators
- Special X-Flow solid copper radiators for servers and workstations
- New reservoirs and pump covers for servers and workstations
- AiO solutions for servers and workstations
Hopefully some of those will be appliable to SFF.
