October 2012 Project Log Update and Case Mod Index Competition Winner
The end of the year is always an exciting time on bit-tech. It's nearly time for our annual Mod of the Year competition when the best projects of 2012 go head to head to claim some awesome prizes and eternal glory. Before then though, we have plenty of other modding awesomeness for you.
We launched our Case Mod Index earlier this year and we've now got nearly 100 projects listed from 24 difference case manufacturers. It's the biggest index of it's kind on the Internet and not wanting to leave those who prefer to make their own cases out in the cold, we'll soon be launching the Scratchbuilt PC Index. You'll be able to see at a glance, projects that are made using aluminium, acrylic or wood, or use Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX or Full-ATX motherboards plus more besides.
You can check out the Case Mod Index here - we've added new cases from the likes of Enermax and BitFenix this month and as usual we have a winner for our sponsor prize.
Every month, PC modding and water-cooling etailer Specialtech is dishing out a prize to one lucky person that has entered their project. So if you haven't already, send us your project's details following the instructions below.
The Case Mod Index now has an awesome sponsor in the form of UK modding and watercooling etailer Specialtech. Submit your case mod and you could be in with a chance of winning an awesome Xigmatek Aeigir CPU cooler. One will be up for grabs every month and we'll be shipping the prize worldwide so everyone can enter.
This month the winner is digitalspy, who added our first Dell case mod this month. You can see his Dell Dimension E520 over in our forum. Well done! We'll be in touch.
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)
Project name and your forum name
Is 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!

That's our Case Mod Index plug over - now its time to look at some of the best eyecandy we've seen this month in our modding forums. First up is Gtek's latest creation called Tenuis. It's probably the most original and unique PC we've seen all year but we expect nothing less from this talented modder.

Gtek claims Tenuis is a living room PC - whatever it is, we doubt it would look out place in any room or any house. It's absolutely exquisite and looks like it's just come off the production line of a super-expensive audio manufacturer.

Sadly, the project was over so quickly it didn't find its way into Mod of the Month, however we dare say we haven't seen the last of it this year if you know what we mean. Head over the page to see more eye-candy.
