Mod of the Month - July2009
I've made plenty of comments about the weather here in the UK in past Mod of the Month
features. I was going to refrain this month but seeing as the weather has been atrocious for the last few weeks, anyone who's managed to get anything done deserves a medal! This hasn't meant things in our modding forums have slowed up though.
There are plenty of new mods appearing all the time and we've found another six that we feel have real real potential, look great or are just plain crazy. If this has wetted your appetite then make sure you also check out the modding section
which features many of the latest and greatest mods from around the world with exlusive content from their makers.
Also don't forget our legendary modding forums
which are teeming with talent. Just make sure you let someone know you're going in, we know plenty of people who have gone in and haven't come out for days because there's so much cool stuff!
Of course, any competition is better with prizes which leads me on to introducing our new sponsor for Mod of the Month - Quiet PC
. 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
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.
Last month saw another massively popular round of Mod of the Month but it was yet another landslide victory for Project: FUGGDIVINO
so congratulations go to sethnmalice. The runner up was Project: Lian Li V2000
by corso13 with his awe inspiring polished case. If you missed the action, you can still see last month's nominees here
So it's a big thanks to Quiet PC, well done to all the nominees last month and here are another six nominees to feast your eyes on. Make sure you head over to our forum and vote for your favourite!
