Mod of the Month April 2012
Incredibly we're nearly half way through 2012, but sadly for us in the UK, the weather hasn't been up to much. That said, while it's not great conditions for painting and the like, we've been playing with lots of acrylic for our scratch built PC guide which you can see here
. Thankfully, other people have been hard at work too and we've got a fantastic mix of giant PCs, water-cooled desks, Steampunk and more for you this month.
If you're new to bit-tech
and modding, or haven't ventured into our forums yet, make sure you check out our Modding
and Project Logs
forums, as well as our Modding section
, where you'll find guides and articles written by the makers of some of the best projects we've seen.
Also don't forget bit-tech's Case Mod Index
- a database of case mods which allows you to see what has been done with particular case makes and models - great if you're new to modding or lacking some inspiration - we need you to submit your projects too. Head over to the article to see how.
We're proud to have the legendary Mnpctech
sponsoring Mod of the Month. The Mnpctech guys are regulars on our forums and, in addition to being avid modders themselves with some awesome projects to their names, the Mnpctech online store is also well worth a visit from every modder.
