Calling all modders

We're big fans of the modding movement, and though we never play favorites, it's always awesome when a company decides to a hold a contest to reward creative individuals for thier hard work. Such is the case today, with Cooler Master announcing its 2013 Case Mod Competition. The competition runs until January 31, 2014, and there will be plenty of cash and prizes given away.

Up to $20,000 is up for grabs in Cooler Master's contest, which is being sponsored by Asus, Geil, and Plextor. There are two categories you can enter, including "Tower Mod" and "Scratch Build." Each category will have a single 1st place winner, two 2nd place winners, and three 3rd place winners, all of which will be calculated based on public votes (30 percent of score) and judges' scores (70 percent of score).

"This year includes cash prizes for 1st and 2nd place winners in both categories of US$1,000 or US$500 respectively. We also have exciting hardware prizes, such as Cooler Master cases, V1000 power supplies and a Nepton liquid cooler, Asus Maximus VI Formula and ASUS TUF Sabertooth Z87 motherboards, aluminum peripherals form CM Storm, Geil Evo Potenza 2666+MHz Limited Edition Frost White 16GB Dual Channel Kit, Plextor SSD and more," Cooler Master says .
