Cangrats to Our Candy Corn Corsair Contestants

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 6 comments


Just before Halloween, we held a contest for you guys to guess how many candy corn pieces were inside this Corsair 800D case.

Today we're pleased to announce the winners. While nobody guessed the exact number, the closest entry came within 62 candy corns of the real total.

Before we reveal the winners and their guesses, let's take a look at cased filled with candy corn craziness.


The total number of candy corn pieces in this case is 50,712. See the filling of the case at YouTube.

Our grand prize winner is Michael Chinander of Chicago, IL and he guessed 50,650, and gets to take home a Corsair combo of Obsidian Series 800D Case, HX850 Power Supply, Hydro Series H50 Cooler, and 128 GB Extreme Series SSD.

We also have 32 GB Voyager flash drives to give to our three runner ups who came next closest with their guesses:

- Justin Langness of Long Beach, CA guessed 50,598 (114 away)

- Erin Cleary of Portland, OR guessed 50,840 (128 away)

- Timothy Finnegan of Tucson, AZ guessed 51,000 (288 away)

Congratulations to all of our winners and thanks for entering to all those who participated!

We've reached out to our winners to see if they'll share their stories of how they arrived at the numbers that they did. Stay tuned!

    Why is this even on the website? The original competition was posted on the website too, yet nobody from the United Kingdom was actually able to enter it anyway.

    The same content management system powers both UK and US sites so you get overlap - even though there is US-specific content there appears to be no UK-specific flag or filter, so we end up with this sort of thing.
