Intel is holding a modding competition with some great prizes on offer and, interestingly, the company has chosen a different way to display and judge the mods that have entered: YouTube.
Modders must upload a video of their case mod to the Intel Modder Contest group
on YouTube. In order to qualify for the competition, your rig must already feature an Intel processor and the only other rules are that the video should be less than a minute long and you have to "make sure it is cool."
Submissions will be accepted until January 14th and then ten finalists will be selected based on YouTube rankings. The top three winners will be selected by a panel of judges, with them being announced on January 21st.
The first prize includes the winner's choice of any Intel desktop or notebook processor (along with an Intel motherboard of the winner's choosing) that is currently in production and an Intel backpack stuffed with gear and gifts including $200 worth of Marriott bucks, a $50 gift certificate for Ubisoft, some games and the promise of more.
The second winner will receive the same minus the Intel-branded motherboard, while third place will win the backpack stuffed with gear and gifts. Finally, Intel says that the first 100 entries will receive a free t-shirt.
We've included the video detailing all of the competition rules below. Meanwhile, you can discuss the entries and who you think will win over in the forums
