Mod of the Month - January 2010Mod of the Year
is now behind us and it's time to start a whole new year of modding! Our forums are busier than ever and we already have a long list of mods waiting to appear in our monthly modding extravaganza and to be featured on our home page.
Needless to say 2010 is already shaping up to be even better than last year in modding terms. Make sure you don't forget to check out our modding section
regularly on bit-tech
where we regularly feature finished mods that have caught our eye with exclusive insights from their makers.
Our modding forums
are where it all happens though and they're simply bulging with new content that's been started over the Christmas holidays.
Our sponsor for Mod of the Month is Quiet PC
so a big thanks to them for the support. Make sure you take a look at their site which offers plenty of stuff cooling and modding related. They'll be giving the winner the choice of one of these
three great prizes every month:
Scythe Kama Connect 2 USB2.0 IDE and SATA External Adapter
The Scythe Kama Connect 2
is an incredibly handy gadget designed to allow you to connect SATA and IDE hard drives quickly and easily to any PC using USB. It is compatible with both 3.5in and 2.5in SATA and IDE hard drives, as well as any other IDE device such as an optical drive. The ability to quickly plug-and-play any hard drive gives you a quick and easy way to access your files or transfer them from one drive to another without needing to open up your PC.
Scythe Mugen 2 Quiet CPU Cooler
This processor cooler is an example of Japanese engineering at its finest! Scythe’s Mugen 2 Quiet CPU Cooler
is designed with five fin towers for improved processor cooling by up to 7 degrees C compared with the original Mugen, which itself was one of the best on the market. As you would expect, it is multi-socket compatible for Intel and AMD and comes with full instructions.
Zalman ZM-MFC1 Plus Black Multi Fan Controller
Zalman's ZM-MFC1 PLUS
is a very simple fan controller which supports up to six 3-pin fans. This provides the user with total control of the installed fans. Each channel is capable of altering the supplied voltage from 5V to 11V, with 5V able to quieten even the loudest of fans. As well as a reduction in noise, lowering the voltage a fan receives also reduces the airflow, so make sure you keep an eye on the temperatures inside the system.
So it's a huge thanks to Quiet PC, well done to all the nominees of December's MOTM. In the end G69T clenched the prize with his DBRS Project
which is quickly becoming one of the most popular projects on bit-tech
