For nine years, Cooler Master's global modding competition has reeled in talent from all four corners of the map. 2018 was no different, with over 100 projects submitted for review from both the public and a panel of judges formed of industry experts. This year, alongside the classic 'Tower Mod' and 'Scratch Build' categories, there was also a 'Monitor Mod' category, sponsored by Viewsonic, and awards for 'People's Choice' and 'Cooling Solution' . Entrants had until mid-July to submit their finished builds, complete with project logs; they were then judged on a series of categories:

  • Craftsmanship - How well was the work itself executed?
  • Aesthetics - Is their theme work consistent, is the build unique, does the look stand out?
  • Functionality - Would the rig function adequately in day to day use?
  • Innovation & Design - Is the project novel and does it include unique elements?
  • Effort and Completeness - How detailed was the project log, could somebody follow the creation process?
  • Cooling Solution - How innovative was the cooling solution, and does it hold potential for future product design?

Enough waffle; who are the winners?
