The winner of the Intel NUC case competition

Four months ago we asked you to come up with designs for a case for Intel's NUC motherboards. Out of dozens of fantastic entries we selected a group of the best designs and these modders went on to create their projects, with Intel kindly providing a full selection of hardware, including an NUC board, SSD, RAM and a WiFi module.

Today we're pleased to announce that following a popular vote in our forum, we finally have a winner. Congratulations to Alex Banks, also known as Maki role in our forum, whose 3D-printed Vesper project just edged out Cheapskate's ToOoOoOobular project.

Alex bags two fantastic prizes - a Core i7-4770K processor, courtesy of Intel, and a bit-tech and Intel winner trophy.

We'd like to thank all our modders for creating not just the most amazing Intel NUC cases on the planet but also some of the best modding projects we've seen. The level of creativity and craftsmanship was a real delight for us all to see, and opened up our eyes to just what is possible, even when size is such a restriction.

We'll leave you with a selection of Alex's images of his winning project, Vesper, and if you want to see all the final cases again, head over to the previous article here.
