Well, here we are at the end of June! We're half-way through the year, in the start of a gorgeous summer (or maybe winter for those of you south of the equator), and we're celebrating the first birthday of our Mod of the Month competition!
One year ago, we rolled out the first of our monthly awards, won by none other than a fishtank with a computer. Since that point in time, we've seen all manner of beasts and builds, from top-spec watercooled SLI rigs to slim and trim HTPCs. Scratch case builds, full-on mods and everything in between have graced these pages as 55 of the best from our forums vied for prizes and recognition.
This month, we're celebrating the anniversary by going back to the old school - June's Mod of the Month contains absolutely no scratch builds. Don't worry, all you talented creators - we'll go back to pick up a couple of you for July. But this one is all about the art of the old-fashioned mod.
I suppose it's fitting then that the month's sponsor is a bit of an oversized prize-pack from our good friends at AC Ryan, one of the largest modding sponsors in the industry.
The prize pack this time will be a little bit more tailor-made in honour of our one-year anniversary, and we'll work out something special for whichever mod ends up the victor!
