Mod of the Month - March 2011
The sun is shining in London, which means that modding-friendly weather is finally upon us in the northern hemisphere. We've already seen scores of new projects turning up on our forums, as well as a considerable amount of work taking place on existing ones too.
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.
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.
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.
These are CNC-machined from 0.75in-thick aluminium, and include four fasteners and nuts. The handles have dimensions of 0.75 x 6.25in (width x length), and feature 0.25in mounting holes.
Thanks to Mnpctech for stumping up such fantastic prizes again this month. Last time, we had six new projects going head-to-head, and each one has the potential to become a big hit. In first place last month was the awesome Get A Life
by The_Gnu, which came in ahead of the very popular Sors salutis
by AnG3L in second and Stealthlow
by Waynio in third.
Nearly 200 votes were cast last month and there were close battles for first and second place. In the end forum user ASPHIAX took the top spot with his Star Trek-themed star ship, USS EURISKO - Intrepid Mark II Class
. Close behind was Corsair 700D R.O.G 'R US
by ColdzeroTeam followed by Mega Box
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.
