The winners of Cooler Master's 2013 Case Mod Contest

Lamborghini ROG Edition was just one of dozens of entries to the competition this year

Cooler Master recently announced the winners of its 2013 Case Mod Contest.

The competition was split up into two categories with both traditional mods and scratch builds accounted for.

The winner of the tower mod category was a project called Sabertooth by forum user Tantricmodz, who used Cooler Master's Cosmos SE case as the subject for his super-clean water-cooled system.

There were two second place winners - Project Imagination by adamski07 - a Mod of the Year contender and also X1-Prototype by MikeMaat - a Red Bull livery-clad water-cooled Cosmos II.

Third place had three prize bundles on offer and was shared between Tesla by Drex, who used a Cooler Master HAF Stacker, another Mod of the Year contender - Cosmos II - The Privilege by Corsaronero333, and finally Centurion by Jesse Palacio.

You can see all these projects in the gallery below or by heading over to the competition page.

I am not knocking the talent but can someone please explain how a model car filled with PC components is classed as a scratch build, which I took to mean created from 'scratch'?

I guess it's in the grey area between an off-the-shelf PC case and literally making a case from bits you've fashioned - he did neither but if I had to put it in one category it would be a scratch build... Even so, to give him credit he did do a bit more than just fill the car with bits :D

This was exactly my first thought... I agree it is a good looking build and clearly displays a lot of attention to detail and skill but that does not qualify as built from scratch in my book...
