It seems like only last month that we were still reeling from our massively popular Mod of the Year 2011 competition when in fact a whole new year has passed us by. We've got less than a month to wait now before the best projects of 2012 come together in a final showcase of this year's talent. It's been a monumental year for modding, with old hands returning to the scene, and newcomers too, with some of the best projects we've ever seen.
As if the dozens of projects already completed this year wasn't enough, many more look set to take centre stage in the coming months - make sure you check out our awesome modding community forums. Our Modding forum is the place for tips, tricks, guides and planning, while the Project Logs forum is where the real magic happens. Don't forget our main Modding section either, where you'll find guides and articles written by the makers of some of the best projects we've seen.
Before we get to this month's projects, don't forget bit-tech's Case Mod Index and Scratch Build Index. These are databases of hundreds of projects which allow you to see what has been done with particular case makes and models, or with specific materials or motherboard sizes. They're fantastic tools that can be helpful if you need some inspiration or want to see what other people have done.
We're proud to have the legendary Mnpctech sponsoring Mod of the Month. The Mnpctech guys are regulars on our forums and, in addition to being avid modders themselves with some awesome projects to their names, the Mnpctech online store is also well worth a visit from every modder.
The winner of Mod of the Month will get one of these awesome prizes from the Mnpctech store itself. There will be some new and exciting products from Mnpctech on the horizon too, but for now feast your eyes on these pieces of true PC bling.

Thanks to Mnpctech for stumping up such fantastic prizes again this month. We've got six very promising projects for you again, so it's time to vote for your favourites. Don't forget that you can vote for more than one project if you're finding it tough to choose one over the others. MOTM is a competition for in-progress projects. You should consider potential, originality, execution and show of skill when voting.
