FINAL UPDATE

Well, the MOTM voting is now over. A total of 238 votes were cast, that's more than twice the number of votes cast in the previous MOTM! The competition was fierce, with all competitors entering great mods, but the well-deserved winner of MOTM June 2014 with 67 votes is @DreadManD with his mod Illuminate, check it out here: Illuminate

The 20€ LAN PC was voted a strong second place with 56 votes, which makes me proud! thumb.gif
On a votes/€ Basis, I like to think the 20€ LAN PC would have come first biggrin.gif
Seriously though, this goes to Show that even with a small Budget and air-cooling you can still be competitive in MOTM (check out @XAslanX's mod Tribal Leo (Syrillian Tribute) , he came 6th from the total 10 contestants and was one of only 2 other builds without water cooling). That's a good Thing. smile.gif


Thanks:

My thanks go out to @hannse12 and @richie_2010, without your help this Project would never have been completed!

I'd also like to thank everyone who's posted comments, advice or Feedback, without your advice and positive Feedback, I'm sure I would have done something diasterously wrong and lost all Motivation with this Project Long before the end!

Anyone who read this log from beginning to end (shout out to @REAPER XD who got the first post and stuck it out to the bitter end!), that's now a whole lot of Posts (35 pages!), respect for anyone who read them all through! Seeing the number of views this page has helped motivate me further.

Thanks to all those who voted for the 20€ LAN PC in MOTM!

And finally,
Thanks for looking thumb.gif

The pleasure is mine really. I'm so thrilled I could have been part of such an exciting and unpredictable master piece. We are all proud of your accomplishment and hope for more to come! wink.gif

Congratulations! It is amazing how much you can achieve with such limited resources. I hope to see some other amazing builds from you in future. smile.gif
post #346 of 351
I read every single post (and posted a few times). Definitely can say this deserved first place based off price / performance ratio of the mod. biggrin.gif

Great job though. And those gaming benches, man that's awesome what you can do with just 20 bucks.

Congrats on the 2nd place though.

I would give this build 1st place anyday, just to get you the prize and see what beige modding beauty you would pull of with that prize tongue.gif
Was a pleasure reading through everything.

*sees angle grinder*

Oh my lord. I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WITHOUT A DREMEL WHO USES AN ANGLE GRINDER.

We need an angle grinder club ?!

Great work man, looks amazing

I didn't realise anyone would still read this, I think it's awesome you took the time to read it thumb.gif

In my eyes, an angle grinder is like a dremmel, but for men biggrin.gif
jk, I'd actually really like to get a dremmel but they're just so damn expensive! redface.gif

Thanks smile.gif
