VIA is going nuts to celebrate the 5th birthday of its Mini-ITX platform!
The super-small form factor has powered more than a few case mods over the five years it's been in existence, spawning a number of dedicated sites including our favourite, Mini-ITX.com
, which has a comprehensive case mod gallery. We're actually big fans of the EPIA Alloy mod
, by bit-tech
stalwart GoTaLL, which you can see on the right.
Well, what would a birthday be without some competitions? In the traditional fashion, VIA is sponsoring a case mod competition over at VIA Arena
, where readers can vote for their favourite mods amongst those on show. The winner gets a Pico-PSU and the latest EPIA EX board, which is not a shabby prize by any means.
If you're not much of a modder, you can also win prizes by photographing a Mini-ITX board in a bizarre situation. You can enter this compo over at EPIA Center
- get your PhotoShop skillz going!
We happen to have a very cool EPIA mod coming up in the coming months here at bit-tech
. You'll have to stay tuned but, dang, is it looking nice already!
Let us know your EPIA thoughts over in the forums.
