I have to agree. Why is there no requirement for actual work to be completed? It's called mod of the month, not "oh look, I'm good at making a minimalistic build where the only thing I actually modified was the hard tubing, and that's because they come in 1m lengths, and even then I didn't bend it" of the month.

Was so frustrating to see builds people had put dozens or even hundreds of hours of work into actually modifying the case (plus doing custom paint jobs, and building a variety of supports from scratch) lose to others that had an army of followers but hadn't really even modified the case after it was taken out if the box.

In theory is should be;
Rig of the month - under the whole umbrella of asthetics/mods/clean build etc
Mod of the Month - solely focusing on the Mod

Guessing each could be split into 2/3 sub groups if needed but anymore ends up a mess.

After it's all said and done, that saved me about $45 on my 8 fans I ordered. It all depends if those couple degrees on load temperatures make or break what you're trying to do. smile.gif

I am swapping out all my SP120s for NFF12 fans. I am sick of replacing one or two SP120s every few months as they develop an annoying clicking noise.

If your vision of modding don't match the one of the contest, don't oarticipate and don't read the thread of mod of the month

It's like they don't like the suggestion and can't understand why every other competitor of theirs (aka website/forum that does motm) has a few extra rules that actually enforces the very first word: modification.

I definitely agree. This way we can actually have those who do custom work and modifications in the mod of the month while the builds that fall under "great builds" would have their own section and contest.

Some might argue it's splitting hairs, but then the motm would actually wind up following the spirit of the words it uses.

It isn't hard to pull up the definition of modification and/or modding as we live in an online world. Putting a few tiny holes to mount a reservoir is NOT case modding, and therefore should not apply to the motm. Any person could take a bunch of parts and put them into a case, and with enough planning and preparation can make it look good, but it takes a certain willingness to take a several hundred dollar case (or even better, a $50 case) and then come out with something absolutely amazing in the end that barely resembles what it was when it came out of the box.

Feel free to think my initial comment was directly aimed at you, but it was a general statement about how this is pretty much the only site that does an motm competition and allows it to be so heavily diluted that a weekend's worth of work putting parts into a case qualifies a person to not only enter, but have a good chance of winning. I have seen so many builds entered in where very little work was done by the actual person, with most of the hard work farmed out. Once again, not directly targeting any particular person with this statement but it's more of a general statement given a number of builds I've seen entered into the competition, many of which were builds I had personally followed and very much so loved but when they put their names into the ring I wound up not voting for them due to there being no mods.

I have no problem with people coming up with an idea, doing most of the legwork themselves, and then asking for help with something complicated that requires machinery they themselves do not have access to. Laser cutting and intricate cnc work can look outright gorgeous but naturally not everyone can afford the several thousand dollars to acquire a good machine. Other great things are taking cases that don't have 360/420mm (or even any) radiator support, bringing such in and then making it look like a stock case (sleeper builds for lack of a better term), making a case reverse atx (not an easy feat with most cases), or going full blown crazy (witcher mod case, most of bneg's shoehorn builds (matx into an mitx case requires a ton of custom parts), and a bunch of others that don't immediately come to mind due to my kettle having broken so I didn't get a morning coffee)....

To me (and interestingly enough, the motm rules of several other websites), it isn't really a case mod if a dremel, sawzall, band saw, jigsaw or other equivalent cutting tool didn't come out to play. Bonus points if sandpaper (or a powered sander of some sort) comes into play and you spray your own multiple layered, hard to photograph paint onto the case.

Exactly.

Mod of the month should mean exactly that.

Even more so as a sponsored builder,you should be pushing your skills to my mind anyway.

For example: IT Diva's Stretch build. Not my cup of tea at all and she knows this. Does she mind? No,because she is adult about it and knows I know how much work went into that build. Would I vote for it? Hell yes,because there are many new things in that build,things that test a mechanically minded person and show great ingenuity.
This is what MOTM should mean.

Not how good you are with a printer.

Just my 2cents.gif Like it....or not.

It's your opinion and respect it
But it's Your opinion

It didn't mean you do a complete new case with a 50$ case it will be pleasant to look

I don't take personally because I alway said I'm a builder not a modder, and only one of my build was in motm because another person put it in the contest

And if someone don't like what I did , just pass to next post and forget me, just Lazy of poeple said your build its mod a réal mod

I just don't understand why if someone think about modding need to be this way , the rest of the world need to follow or it's not modding

Explain?

What 'someone'? This is a universal issue dealt with on many forums easily but not OCN....which is what we are discussing.
