    I suppose I can't vote now, since I'm the MOTM Sponsor...

    Ok, I can deal with that..

    :wallbash: It's a boxing analogy.

    Just because i chose Concretronic over another mod, does not mean they are lesser mods.

    I'm allowed 1 vote, and for sheer originality alone Concretronic gets it.

    Lighten up mate :D

    Thanks for the nice mention although I do not belong in it yet as the project is still quite unfinished as you mentioned (learning Solidworks now so I can design the proper monitor enclosures instead of the ghetto mess you see). I am honored to even be listed with the other projects here. As always, thanks to Bill for promoting the modding community as well!

    They are all too good to choose, but if I had to pick I choose the HTPC for its simplicity... Great Job EVERYONE!!!

    Maybe have a go at making your own? Might take a while but it's probably going to be cheaper than a TJ-07!:D

    Made mine from a crappy old case :D I wasn't having a pop, just they always seem to win and I was being a paddy arse because I ain't got the money for one. Shame on me :)

    I've been following both Polarity and Reflexion and they are excellent pieces of craftsmanship. The overview doesn’t even mention the exquisite dovetails in the Reflexion build.

    All excellent MOTM nominations. My vote is for Reflexion.

    My word, I've just had this pointed out to me (having managed to completely miss it being posted) and am stunned. I have the cheesiest grin imaginable on my face right now at seeing my humble case in this contest.
    Thanks to all those that vote for my project, and I wish the best of luck to all the other superb entries.

    Sorry Tris I thought I'd PMed everyone, I must have forgotten!

    Didn't assume you were having a pop!:D Just seems to me there are some great looking scratchbuilds in the forums at the moment and I bet they cost a lot less than these shiny high end cases but well done for having a go! eBay is your friend though - I picked up my Lian Li V2000 for £60 last year :rock:

    Concretronic got my vote. As has been said before, it's so unique and original that it deserves a vote, imo. Plus, making a solid curved chunk of concrete and putting a PC in it probably isn't as easy as some are willing to say it is!

    Wish I could have put in a second vote for Darkshines, though! As the article says: "we can honestly say that if this case could be bought in the shops, we reckon it would prove very popular indeed". I'd buy one if you were selling! It's not as flashy or complex as some others, but it's a great looking case.

    My brain hurts trying to pick & they are all special, unique, I like the little htpc & think the prizes would look sweet on it too :D, I like the extreme lian-li 2000 mod (but money to burn comes to mind would have been soooo much cheaper to buy a mobo tray & make a frame), I like polarity, I like reflexion & the hefty attention to detail he went to on it & the skill displayed throughout.
    But the shear awesomeness of the concrete pc & DB's 2 player rig I'm having great difficulty picking the number 1, almost flip a coin time :lol:, but no, my heart & head says concrete pc Cheesecake :D:jawdrop::clap:.
    Congrats to all nominated, all fantastic pieces :dremel::thumb:.
