Bit-tech Modding Update - December 2013

Bit-tech Modding Update - December 2013

Later this month we'll be hosting our annual Mod of the Year competition where the best projects of 2013 will go head to head. Before then, though, it's time to look at the best projects to be completed in the last month or so. November has been a cracking month in our forum with many projects coming to completion including one that's been on the go for nearly four years.

We've also been adding new projects to our Scratchbuild Index, which features cases made from scratch, sorted by materials used, motherboard size and case type.

Our Case Mod Index is a similar database of case mods. You can see what others have done with a case you might own or be thinking about buying, and see how others have modded it and whether they've water-cooled it too.

Bit-tech Modding Update - December 2013UK modding and watercooling etailerSpecialtech is offering a Phobya TPC 5.25" 4 Channel Fan and Temperature Controller every month and we'll be shipping the prize worldwide so everyone can enter.
