May 2012 Project Log and Case Mod Index Update


It's time for another look at bit-tech's fast-growing Case Mod Index - our very own database of PC mods and a glance at some of the most interesting projects on our forums. If you haven't heard of our Case Mod Index, it's a list of case mods, sorted by case model and manufacturer, making it easy to see what other modders have done with a particular case, or simply as an easy way of viewing scores of completed projects.

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 70 projects in the index since it went live, spanning 14 different case manufacturers and nearly 50 different case models.

We've added more projects to the Cooler Master and Lian Li ranges and we've got our first Cooler Master CM 690 II Plus case too. Cooler Master extends it's lead as the most popular case manufacturer, with 11 cases and 18 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 modding@bit-tech.net 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:
  • Forum name
  • Case (make and model)
  • URL to your project log (which must be in bit-tech's project log forum)
  • Project name
  • 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
It seems the warmer weather is having quite an impact on the amount of work going on in our forums. We've had scores of projects start and finish and a whole lot or work has been going on with everything in between. The first of several interesting additions to the completed hall of fame is a scratchbuild called Black N' Blue by DluXe, who's been a bit-tech member since January.

It's an amazing-looking project and if you thought it looked familiar, DluXe took his inspiration from the no-less impressive Mnpctech Mod Men PC that we featured here. Make sure you head over to DluXe's project log to see more.
