December 2012 Bit-tech modding update

December 2012 Bit-tech Modding Update


We're into December and this month's update has some fantastic eye-candy for you. Make sure you head over the page to check it out. This year has been a spectacular year for PC modding. We've seen more talented newcomers and spectacular projects than ever and we're pleased to see that manufacturers are also taking the hobby more seriously these days too. We're also just a few weeks away from our annual spectacular modding competition where the best of bit-tech's projects from 2012 go head to head for ultimate glory.

This year also saw the launch of 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.

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.

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 modding@bit-tech.net 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!

To add your scratch-built case send us the following:
  • Forum user name
