Definitely, I vote for ROG RAMPAGE by nhenhophach. I have met him in reality. He's such an artist:))

Mind going a bit lower?


One thing I forgot from the original post was that the community size and number of voters evens things out even more. "Ooh shiney parts" gets some voters' attention, but there are also plenty of people voting for the other projects based on other reasons.

And the Attila's and Slipperyskip's builds are a great example of what can be done with creativity and skills with hand tools. Sure, they get some sponsorships, but it's not like you couldn't afford the stuff they get for free.... And either way, they sure deserve the stuff.

186 & counting, nice :D already a new record woo hoo :D.

Again I have no regrets voting for all this month :D all excellent mods, I know it's a sign of indecisiveness but my mind has been bogged down the past week thanks to some BS in my country so I'm glad the option was there to prevent my head getting more pickled :D.

And sponsorships & winning prizes to help take some weight off the overall cost of a project are awesome for the modder & the companies, you don't ask you don't get, you mod bad you don't get, proven track record you might auto get if lucky (only seen this a couple of times) or if ask you might get & the companies will be glad to sponsor as long as you do them proud :D just going off what I see but got my first sponsor on my latest kind of accidentally which I'm happy with especially with the sponsor being 1 of my mod idols :D.
But as Antony said somewhere I read fewer companies are putting as much budget into sponsoring at the moment which to be honest is no surprise with more & more getting into it & economics etc, I still haven't gone to ask any companies for the help, the case feet from Bill MNPCtech was kind of by accident :D, I'm used to really scraping by to support my interest in modding so if I see a glimpse of possibility to do it all myself I do, just don't like relying on others to get parts I actually want & specific parts as it's for my own use as my main rig & not just for show or to win comps to gain free hardware.

The only thing that disappoints me in modding & only slightly is when the modder doesn't actually make it & pass it off as their work which anyone could do with money & or contacts but many circumstances that doesn't bother me at all but if it does I just leave it, end of the day people who let others do the skilled work for them they won't learn the skills it took to do it & will remain a newb modder & I'll see them as such, that's a big part of the fun with modding having little to no skills & working through it gaining/developing skills then anything that comes to mind as an idea you can just go & make when you are ready & not wait for someone else or have a big bill for it :), but still that doesn't take much away from a finished awesome mod :) so just a little nit picking from me on that & just my personal opinion really :p no different than people who buy pre assembled PC's at a premium with iffy specs or custom part PC's with exact wanted specs & much nicer price, hopefully I said that right where it doesn't bother anyone :D.

I said a while ago I'd love to see some mods from the world where language kinda blocks communication but in modding the awesome modding can pretty much speak for itself, I've enjoyed seeing filimons mods a heck of a lot & he rarely says a thing so it's fun & pleasantly shocking when he actually does have something to say :D so thank you nhenhophach for sharing that sweet mod if I was to share my mod over on 1 of your local forums I'd be like filimon without words or if I tried, failed with bizarre funny translations :D anything you had to say was understood nicely ;).

I could make case after case all year but I don't see the point if I already have 1 I like & can't fault :D unless I was to start selling them so after my latest I'll be practicing & learning new skills & making some nice furniture to take a break from modding for a bit I think.

OMG I can woffle on & on sometimes & I don't know why, I doubt anyone reads it :) now I need to grab a cattle prodder to give myself a whack with it to get me in gear to finish my mod :D.

I just like the fact that if you add up all the % in the vote, it's about 162%!

nhenhophach, Kier and myself have 124% of the votes...

Much less blah & more modding from me when & if I get the real motivation, really had my karma mucked up the past week. I'd have probably been ok if I avoided the serious discusion threads :D.

Great mods this month as usual and a very difficult decision!

Regarding the topic of whether a build is sponsored or not -

This should not matter if you are looking at the case itself and not the hardware. We should be judging on the creativity of the mod, the building process, and the overall finished look and quality. This is a "MOD CONTEST". Not a "most expensive looking computer contest".

I have seen amazing mods win that have had less that $300 into the whole thing.

Should we start saying it's not fair because someone has more money in their wallet? Or, that they have more experience so that's not fair? Or that they have a higher IQ so it's easier for them?

The answer = NO

The only way to make some people happy would be a contest where everyone starts with the same exact case, the same exact tools, the same exact IQ, the same amount of time, etc., etc.

It's not a perfect world. Never will be.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have some modding to do....B)

Voted a couple of days back for ROG RAMPAGE by nhenhophach due to the individuality and uniqueness of the build, I haven't been on the modding scene for too long but from what I've seen around each and every forum this is a unique build worthy of notification!

Good look nhenhophach

Angel OD and nhenhophach got my vote.
I love that impressive waterblock of Angel OD and ROG Rampage make me shock within my head.

I know what you mean. It was a tough month for casemods. There was plenty of good competition. Some months it seems like there's too many good cases and others... meh.

I guess it means I need to try harder! Once I get my parts and paint I'll be doing more work.

Flipping flip flap :D 223 votes, wow that's nearly double what used to vote .

My vote for nhenhophach, good job!!!

It's pretty obvious that the move to the project log section has boosted voter numbers, but nowhere near the boost you get from showing almost complete projects. I'm pretty sure people feel more comfortable voting for something they can see in a completed state. And the number is still going up.

Oh, and Angel OD, don't worry, the WII project was featured in the modding section so it will compete in the Mod of the year comp. ;)

To be honest... I'd rather be in MOTM where there is a decent chance of finishing top 6, than getting my butt whooopped in MOTY!

I did think about this - having photos here would boost votes further, and make it easier but it would also mean people don't go clickity click over on the main article, which in turn boosts bit-tech traffic, which in turn keeps the site going through advertising :D
