I need to clarify what I meant by PC modding shop, cause honestly there aren't that many of those around. But I think there is a certain level of modification where the lines of scratch built versus modified start to blur. There are many talented modders and system builders on this website and I don't mean to exclude anyone but there have been what I would call totally custom built machines entered in mod of the month. While these systems are modifications I think they take away from the work that other people do when they gut a case, take a dremel to it and make something rather extraordinary out of the simple interior/exterior of the case. We don't all have the tools needed to manufacture fully custom components for our cases. Some people go to a shop and have them make pieces for their cases which is fine. However some of the tools required to do some of these things cleanly and accurately cost thousands upon thousands of dollars which is well beyond the reach of your basic modder. IF this is to continue I think there needs to be separate categories. Something like

Basic Modifications: things like added a fan hole or a window and accent paint work, sleeved cables

Advanced Modifications: things like medium dremel work, fully painted/powder coated cases, Some custom part work like brackets for mounting things, and custom cables. Water cooled would start in this category I would think since its not really basic.

Extreme Modifications: this one should be obvious. Complete tear-down and rework of a case. or a totally scratch built case/mounting board

The extreme category would have less contestants and maybe it could be run as a yearly deal. Extreme system of the year or since this is OCN.. OCN System of the Year(would give some people a lot of time to get their systems built each year and would most likely have some rather amazing builds entered). The other 2 categories will see many more contestants than the extreme and they could still be put in the running for All 12 winners of both being put up for Mod of the Year.

It's obviously not something we could do on a monthly basis when you consider the roster for December and January looked something like this... Annually for sure smile.gif
