If you're a case modder, you may want to consider trying your hand at winning this competition.

Fancy yourself to be a pretty good case modder? Good enough to maybe win a competition?

Taiwan-based company Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) is calling for entries for the ECS Modmen Case Mod Competition.  The case mods will be judged in a variety of categories, which, according to the competition rules, are the following:

  1. Overall design (20 points) determined by judges 
  2. Creativity (25points) determined by judges 
  3. Technique (20 points) determined by judges
  4. Mod on Motherboard (15 points) determined by judges
  5. Peer evaluation (20 points) determined by the public vote

Those placing in the top ten will take home a Thermaltake case, a cooler, and a PSU. The top five entries will win $1,000 USD and over $2,000 worth of goodies, including a headset, a PSU, a cooler, and a Thermaltake Armor case, along with a trip to Taipei, Taiwan, where their cases will be pitted against each other in front a panel of judges at Taiwanese trade show Computex 2013. The winner takes home $1,000,000NT ($30K USD).

"Winning the ECS Modmen competition will give someone international notoriety and top-notch cash and prizes,” said Ivette Huang, ECS Marketing Manager. “We wanted to offer a big cash prize as well as give a few Modders the chance to check out Computex 2013.”

The competition is still open for entries until February 28. Note that in order to enter, you must buy an ECS motherboard (or own an ECS Golden Board) and be over the age of 18. You can register for entry via the official competition site.
