Lian Li launches Case Mod Contest

Lian Li launches Case Mod Contest

The winners get to pick a case of their choice along with receiving cash and hardware prizes.

Keen to get back to its modding routes and to promote its new PC-7H case, Lian Li is launching its very own case mod contest. Participants can now register for the chance to win a host of hardware and cash prizes as well as being able to pick a Lian Li case of their choice.

Hardware prizes are sponsored by Asus graphics and include the Rampage IV Extreme, Radeon HD 7970 3GB with the top cash prize being US $1,200. The competition is a fairly enclosed one, with nominees only able to enter by buying their own Lian Li PC-7H as the basis for their mods.

The prizes are as follows:
  • 1st place: One Lian Li case of your choice, PC-7H Mod Master Aluminum Award Card, Asus Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard, Asus HD7970 graphics card, US$1200 cash

  • 2nd place: One Lian Li case of your choice, PC-7H Mod Master Aluminum Award Card, Asus P9X79 Pro Motherboard, Asus GF GTX-650 graphics card, US$500 cash

  • 3rd place: One Lian Li case of your choice, PC-7H Mod Master Aluminum Award Card, Asus Sabertooth Z77 Motherboard, US$300 cash

To enter, you'll need to head over to the Lian Li sub-forum over at Xtreme Systems, where you'll need to register and start a new thread with an image of your PC-7H case and hardware before you begin.

The rules are:
  • Only mods using the PC-7H chassis are qualified to enter
  • The competition is open worldwide
  • The final product must be a fully functional PC
  • Entries to the PC-7H modding contest are not exclusive to this contest.

A final submission of your completed project needs to be send to 7hmod@mail.lian-li.com, including images of your completed case mod and a link to your project log on their forum by January 18th 2013.

Voting will be in two parts - a panel of judges including bit-tech will whittle the entries down to the top ten, with members of Lian Li's Facebook page then going on to vote for their favourites with one voter being selected to win a PC-7H case as a prize too.

Voting will commence on January 25th and end at midnight on January 31st - the winners will be and announced on February 1st and contacted by Lian Li.

May I be the 1st to say, which probably echoes a few folks' thoughts out there, that Lian Li is really dropping the ball on this one. Terrible idea. Open it to all Lian Li chassis and it makes a little more sense. I guess this will work out for the 20 folks out there worldwide that will invest in the gear needed to get this rolling; possibility of winning is a bit higher too ;) Good luck with it either way.

7H?.... It's not really all that moddable. :/

I guess this a bit too obvious a marketing trick, especially considering what EEL said.

Agreed, it would be more successful response if it was open to any Lian Li case.
