We're just weeks away from our annual spectacular modding competition where we pitch the very best projects of the year against each other as they bid for modding glory. You'll be able to vote for your favourites and pledge them your support nearer Christmas.
In the meantime, we've launched our Scratchbuild Index - the first database of its kind on the Internet. Following the success of our Case Mod Index, which now has over 100 case mods, filtered by case manufacturer and model, the Scratchbuild Index allows you to see projects based on motherboard size, case style and materials used - fantastic if you're not sure where to start when building your first case from scratch.
Every month in the Bit-tech Modding Update, we'll now be taking a look at the projects that you've submitted to either the Case Mod Index or the Scratchbuild Index and 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.
Bit-tech's modding databases have an awesome sponsor in the form of UK modding and watercooling etailer Specialtech. Submit your case mod or scratchbuild 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 B NEGATIVE aka Dan Harper who submitted his Mil-Spec project. Well done Dan - we'll be in touch.
We need your help to grow our modding databases, so if you've finished modding your case or constructing your scratchbuild, then we'd love to add yours. You can do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Submit My Project' in the subject line.
If you're submitting a case mod, it must be complete[/b] with noticeable modifications (these can include spray paint/powder-coat or installed water-cooling hardware. To submit your case mod you'll need to include the following information:
Forum user name
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 your photobucket account hasn't expired!
