Mod of the Month - April 2011
There's so much going on in our project log forums these days that it's hard to keep track of all the amazing eye candy on show. There are scores of fantastic projects nearing completion, and even more have been started in the last month, while hundreds of updates have been added to in-progress mods and scratchbuilds.
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
. Here you'll find guides and articles written by the makers of some of the best projects we've seen, as well as plenty of eye candy from other projects.
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.
Our popular sponsor has also outdone itself this month, creating a first for Mod of the Month - a bit-tech
and Mod of the Month-branded modding ruler up for grabs. We have to say a huge thanks to Mnpctech for stumping up such a fantastic prize. In fact, if we were the winner, we'd want to frame it rather than put it in our toolbox.
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 ruler is CNC-machined from 1/8in pure copper, and weighs one pound. You can see a fantastic video showing how the ruler is made here
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 month, over 100 of you voted in our Mod of the Month poll, in which six unique projects went head to head. It was a familiar face that won, though - boddaker claimed first place with his Cooler Master modding competition entry, TRON Lightcycle
. In second was Positronic Brain
by awadon and just making it onto the podium was Commodore P.E.T. 2011
Back to this month, we've got six of the best for you again, so don't forget to vote for your favourites
. Note that you can also now vote for more than one project
if you're finding it tough to choose a favourite.
