We're finally getting some decent weather here in the UK after a pretty appalling winter so those of us that have been flooded, frozen in or just plain don't like tinkering out in the shed when it's a bit nippy, are gearing up for a spring and summer full of modding. There's already been plenty of action in our modding forum this month too. Several projects have been completed, as you can see in our monthly Modding Update, and there are some fantastic in-progress projects in the works too.
We've picked six of our favourites this month, which we've highlighted over the next few pages and you can vote for the ones that catch your eye too. Head over to our modding section and modding and project log forums to see more - there are plenty of amazing projects to see and guides to follow. We've also got our Case Mod Index and Scratchbuild Index too - you can see what other people have done modding-wise with particular cases or build materials and we give a prize to one lucky entrant each month.
Mod of the month is proudly sponsored by Mnpctech. 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.

You should consider potential, originality, execution and show of skill when voting.
