Voted for 4 builds this time! Awesome work all round. Awesome to see a Parvum build make the cut and good luck to you all. Look forward to giving away the Parvum case! Hope l3p doesn't get second place haha.

Don't mean to put a dampener on the moty buzz, but i don't think wet pi and vesper should have been included. Yes they're outstanding work, but haven't they already had their moment of glory? I would have thought it better to shine some light on some of the other top builds we've had this year. To be honest I'm shocked mini moto isn't in this and a little disappointed that a lot of the builds nominated are, well, quite similar. Just my 2 cents

I do see where you're coming from, but we didn't pick the nominees and haven't for a couple of years - we get the bit-tech community to send us their picks (we put a sticky in the project log forum a couple of months back) and the top 20 go through to the article. That seems the fairest way of doing it to me!

Really nice builds, congrats to all contenders!
I voted for my favorites (2 scratch builds of course:D + one case mod)
I love to see those builds where modders put so much hard work and thoughts in their projects.
I watched my "veteran-favorites" for a long time through their processes and that is why voted for them - truly amazing ideas, tons of hard work and time spent on them.
I'm really happy to see that peeps still love modding and give so much affords to express themselves through their builds.
Well done everyone! Now, let's see who wins this year;)

Yeh that's 'fair', but maybe in the future if you run additional competitions such as the pi and nuc one's from this year, they should be excluded from moty. That seems 'fair' to me.

Don't agree with that at all. Just as the winner of a mod of the month can be nominated, so should the winner of any other competition. It's about showcasing the finest work featured on bit-tech's forums throughout the year.

That's a bit like saying a film can't win an Oscar because it won a BAFTA...

I get your point and i agree with it up to a point, but not enough to change my opinion. Motm is is more about highlighting some in progress builds that are shaping up well that people should check out, as well as being a nice victory and badge of honour for the modders themselves.

the additional comps you've done this year are a different beast all together, very specific entry requirements based on the hardware that the other builds are obviously excluded from. Without those additional competitions, those builds would not exist. They've had their competition, been judged and a winner announced, praise sang, glory had.

I just think they shouldn't have been included in moty so other builds can have there moment in the spotlight. But that's just my opinion. Maybe a champions league after the winner is announced eh? ;-)

No need to be a *beep*. Just voicing my opinion.

Your metaphor is also poor. What I'm saying is that you shouldn't be able to win best actor and best supporting actor for the same role.

Hands down the MOTY 2013 for me is "The Microprocessor" from Ace.

It should've won the intel NUC competition, but unfortunately Aces design-idea didn't make iit into the final round. So he bought the NUC himself and created a truly stunning case for it, and as I said in the worklog allready... this should be the case intel delivers the NUC with by default!

Anyways. Lot's and lot's of watercooling pr0n again, if you're interested in it
