Mod of the Month March 2013
It looks like winter has finally lost its eternal grip for those of us in the UK so we're looking forward to getting our Dremels out once again. However, it seems plenty of other people from all over the world have done exactly that over recent weeks as we've had a hefty influx of new projects in our modding forum.
We've picked six of these to compete in our monthly modding competition, and as usual we've got an awesome mix of projects to cast your multiple votes on. Whether you're into sexy water-cooled rigs, cutting-edge wooden works of art, the latest desk PCs or ultra small cases, we've got something for you this month.
In the mean time make sure you head over to our Modding forum
- it's the place for tips, tricks, guides and planning, while the Project Logs forum
is where everyone shows what they can do, with one of the biggest forums of case mods on the planet. Don't forget our main Modding section
either, where you'll find guides and articles written by us and also many renowned modders.
We have something you won't find anywhere else either - two very special databases of modding projects. bit-tech's Case Mod Index
and Scratch Build Index
are databases of hundreds of projects which allow you to see what has been done with particular case makes and models, or with specific materials or motherboard sizes. They're fantastic tools that can be helpful if you need some inspiration or want to see what other people have done.
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.
