Mod of the Year 2011
2011 has undoubtedly been one of the best ever years for PC modding. In fact, so many projects have graced our world-famous modding forum that we've had real trouble sifting through all the incredible talent that's been on show this year. As it stands, this is our biggest-ever Mod of the Year competition, with 25 projects taking part.
However, the back-to-back winner, Attila Lukacs, who claimed 1st place in 2009 and 2010 is absent, as he's still working on his follow up project. As such, this year's much sought-after Mod of the Year crown is definitely up for grabs, along with some epic prize bundles
That's not to say Attila wouldn't have had some extremely stiff competition. This year we've had some of the most amazing projects we've ever seen, from water-cooled desk PCs, TRON Lightcycles, wooden wonders, mini-ITX masterpieces, scale starships and of course more racy-looking water-cooled PCs than you can shake a stick at.
There's something for everybody, whether you're into mods or scratchbuilds, air-cooling or water-cooling. As usual, though, we need you to vote for your favourite projects
- you've got multiple votes to use and if you vote you'll also be in with a chance of winning some awesome Carbon Fibre modding mesh from Mnpctech
- we've got 25 prizes to give away, so check out all the amazing projects and vote for your favourites.
The projects are listed below in alphabetical order with a description and gallery on the following pages. Once you've finished trying to cope with all the eyecandy, head over to the voting page. You have ten votes - use them wisely!
