Some of those mods are really old (especially the doom mod), it sucks that they could have spend months and months on the modding (much longer than anyone who just found out about the competition for example) and then just submit the pre-finished work.

And yet some others of those people need to look up the definition of mod. They haven't done anything to their cases and yet they submit them anyway!

That is an amazing build... 15 months of work? I wouldn't have the patience.

You would think that a modding contest sponsored by Dell they would have required you start with a Dell case.

I still think its wrong that these old mod projects show up in new contests, you don't see the same car show up every time for the Ridler Award.

I agree with that sentiment too.

Yeah, but if this is the only contest he has submitted it to, then I think it is ok.

Yeah, I saw that. He just sprayed some expanding foam and painted it.

I liked the one who submitted his "ORANGE fan mod"

LOL off the shelf case entry with photos from the manufactures site.... love the description under the entry

This computer have great performance and style with a reasonable low price. TigerDirect and AlienWare help me to modify this computer. Unfortunately I can not affort it.
