So... would this be a best case scenario?
We all love a good case mod, and so does Intel. In fact, the chipmaker challenged the mod community to come up with the greatest case mods ever using Core i7 and Core i5 parts (though some made it through using previous generation parts).
Intel set up the challenge to all enthusiasts in Belgium, Canada, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom and the United States – and now we know all the winning entries.
The image below has a sampling of the winners, but the full details of each system can be found here.
Interestingly, we reported on the U.S. winner's entry in an earlier story. Congrats!
Those with the best mods will receive gift cards worth up to US $1,500; Intel processors; an Intel Atom processor-based netbook; a Flip HD pocket camcorder; a 160GB Intel solid-state drive and other prizes.
