Mod of the Month - October 2011
It's now the penultimate Mod of the Month before the modding world's most prestigious modding competition comes your way - the bit-tech Mod of the Year
. We've seen hundreds of fantastic projects this year, but there's only space for a select few to be nominated - feel free to send us your top five nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org
, and we'll add them to our shortlist.
There are still plenty of new projects hitting our forums, though, and we've got six new ones for you to feast your eyes on this month. 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).
Each of these case feet is made in a CNC Lathe by Mnpctech from a 1-3/4in diameter aluminium rod. Each foot also has a thick, hard rubber insert to protect your desktop and help prevent vibration. Each foot has a diameter of 1-3/4in and a height of 7/8in. These feet require 1/4in mounting holes.
This ruler is CNC-machined from 1/8in pure copper, and weighs 454g. It's also worth checking out this fantastic video showing how the ruler is made
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. Gymkhana Mod
- forum user Moddingboy's spectacular case mod came first, ahead of Multi Hex
by Archer. Meanwhile, we had a tie for third place between AMD Bulldozer 8-Core Tribute
by TheGreatSatan and R-kaid-6
Back to this month, we've got six very promising projects for you again, so it's time to vote for your favourites
. Don't forget that you can also now vote for more than one project
if you're finding it tough to choose a favourite.
