It's time for another look at bit-tech's fast-growing Case Mod Index and a glance at some of the most interesting projects on our forums too. If you haven't heard of our Case Mod Index, it's a database of case mods, sorted by case model and manufacturer, making it easy to see what other modders have done with a particular case.
This might be useful if you're not sure how to add water-cooling hardware to your case, or lacking inspiration for your next modding project. There are now nearly 70 projects in the index since it went live, spanning 14 different case manufacturers and over 40 different case models.
The latest to be added are the Cooler Master Cosmos II, and Lian Li PC-A04. Cooler Master still rules the roost as the most popular case manufacturer, with nine cases and 15 projects in total. Lian Li isn't far behind with 12 projects, while SilverStone's TJ07 remains the most popular modded case.
We need you're help to grow the index, so if you've finished modding your PC, then we'd love to add yours to the Case Mod Index - you can do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Submit My Mod' in the subject line. You're mod must be complete with noticeable modifications (these can include spray paint/powder-coat or installed water-cooling hardware. You'll also need to include the following information:
Case (make and model)
URL to your project log (which must be in bit-tech's project log forum)
Whether or not your PC is water-cooled
This is not for scratch-built cases and make sure your project log's photos are visible - ie you're photobucket account hasn't expired!
We'll be adding more projects to the database regularly so be sure to check back often to see all the new projects!
Project Log update
We start this update off with a bang as we send a huge congratulations to yet another talented modder - Achron, who's just finished his fantastic mini-ITX HTPC called Acronym. The project began in 2009 and was also featured in February 2010's Mod of the Month competition.

Countless updates and an insane amount of eyecandy later, the finished project is undoubtedly a Mod of the Year contender and one of the best-looking scratchbuilds we've ever seen.
