Mod of the Month August 2011
Our project log forum has seen scores of new projects over the last few weeks, and many of those in progress have received large updates too. In case you're not a regular visitor, it's well worth checking 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.
We're also 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.
The winner of Mod of the Month will get one of these
awesome prizes from the Mnpctech store itself. There will be some new and exciting products from Mnpctech on the horizon too, but for now feast your eyes on these pieces of true PC bling.
This radiator grille is CNC-milled from 3/16in thick 6061 aluminium, and features removable grille inserts. The grille measures 5.5in wide x 10-1/4in long, and its 15mm screw-spacing fits Feser, Black Ice, Swiftech and Thermochill Radiators. Includes M3 screws (1/4in length).
This looks and feels like real carbon fiber, and adheres to both flat and curved surfaces. You can apply this to power supplies, cases, monitors, keyboards, mice, drive faces, headphones, bezels, fan controllers, toggle switches and so on.
This two-piece fan grille has an outer ring that's CNC milled from 1/2in thick 6061 aluminium. Meanwhile, its removable silver honeycomb grille insert is stamped from steel and provides ample airflow.
Thanks to Mnpctech for stumping up such fantastic prizes again this month. Nearly 250 of you voted last month, but only six points separated first and second place. In the end, forum user nhenhophach took the top spot with his ROG RAMPAGE water-cooled project, which you can see here
. In second place was kier with his fabulous Silverstone TJ11 Carbon
- his third MOTM nomination this year, while in third was custom water cooling guru Angel OD with his latest foray, Watercooled CarPC
Back to this month, we've got six of the best for you again, so don't forget to vote for your favourite
. Note that you can also now vote for more than one project
if you're finding it tough to choose a favourite.
