Cooler Master Case Mod series is probably the most intense modding competition every to be held to bring diverse mods from around the world. With over 120 international entries, 82 were complete submissions, 36 tower mods and 46 scratch build systems. Judges from Cooler Master side chose three winners for Tower mod and Scratch build category, while another tower mod and scratch build category in the people’s choice.
Usually, many modding competitions are invitational only, limiting to a handful of modders that are usually known by hardware enthusiasts. Though those mods look impressive, it doesn’t give a platform to other potential modders. In this competition, however, Cooler Master allowed many entries and not limiting it to a particular country or continent. The end result is spectacular!
