The modding calendar has once again reset itself; we're back to the beginning of a new year (doubly so if you celebrate Chinese New Year) and as such a host of new projects are gracing us. January is always a curious month for modding on bit-tech; sometimes it can be awash with new projects, other times it's full of builds that just didn't quite make it to the finish line in time for Mod of the Year. We've got a nice medley this time around, with both familiar faces and newcomers joining the ranks - enjoy the show!
Entering Mod of the Month is very easy. All you need to do to enter Mod of the Month is to make sure you add the 'Complete' prefix to your build log. You can find out more here.
Corsair is our sponsor for our monthly modding competitions, and we've got some great prizes for you this month, including its latest RGB LED fans and Vengeance RGB memory spread across the top three positions in Mod of the Month.
As per the rules, if you place first in a Mod of the Month, then in any future Mod of the Months (or Modding Updates) you get into that year, you won't be eligible for prizes. You can still be picked and win, but it will be honorific instead.
We regret that Corsair's worldwide coverage with shipping no longer includes South America or Africa due to continuing issues with shipping to these locations. This is beyond our control, so we sincerely apologise to anyone in these areas, as we'll be unable to honour their prizes for the foreseeable future.
Way back in December, our previous winner was SPARTACUS / MOD OF THE ARENA by abbas-it, followed by Project: Machine by Reza Ghafarian in second and Imperial Stardestroyer by ModellbauRD in third place. Congratulations! I will be in contact with you folks soon (and Ali, it seems you need a running Corsair tab!)
A huge thanks to Corsair for stumping up some great prizes again this month. 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 completed projects. You should consider originality, execution, and show of skill when voting.
