    Throw me a bone here.

    Do you honestly think that’s what a 900D looks like stock?

    For me it's spartacus abbas-it is just a true artisan no one can do what he does.

    I think the line between Client system builds and case modding is getting very very blurred.... but then this is the "Project LOGS" forums..... Singularity / coldzero

    Crapman - A little extreme there. You're saying that because his connectors, screws, and cable organizers are not modded, that it doesn't count? That's just silly. You could make a similar list for every single mod or build out there, as everyone buys computer parts or pieces to put together...

    No, everything is off the shelf. EVERYTHING. There isn't a single piece created or amended by that person. You want a case exactly like that? Here you go.

    There is very little difference between that build and any pc that someone has put together themselves. What next?

    Why don't I enter MOTY with one of these:

    They're definitely mods, I'd own them, so they're my mods, right?
    [​IMG]

    Just because you construct ikea furniture doesn't make it handmade. You don't buy a lego millennium falcon, build it and proclaim to be it's creator.

    Project Machine is not a mod. It's PC Lego bought from Ikea.

    "A little extreme" throwing in loose oxy's......How can facts be considered extreme?

    "You're saying that because his connectors, screws, and cable organizers are not modded, that it doesn't count?" wasn't that obvious?

    "That's just silly" says who?

    "You could make a similar list for every single mod or build out there" a build yes but not a mod..... you seem be missing his whole point.

    What he is saying is NOTHING is modded.... Period.


    I'm not bagging his build i like it ! its sexy it's nice (it has zip ties!) it's clean as hell it's so damm clean it really does look like a render but it's not a case mod. Nor was it a project log.

    I see both sides of the argument here.

    Firstly, so long as he made the cables up himself IMO then that constitutes a mod. Whenever I vote (and I usually do unless I miss it) I vote on what appeals to me at the time aesthetically. If there was proof beyond proof he did not do anything then fair enough, I would understand.

    I would also like to say from a personal perspective that work in does not mean great out. I'm not going to name any names here (because we all like different things) but there are a few modders within the scene that completely overdo mods making them look gaudy and nasty. That's just my opinion. They usually get me onboard with their ideas and right up to about 50% I like what I see, then you turn one screw too much and that's it, ruined.

    And look right, I am mainly criticising myself here. I've done several mods over the years and I know which ones I still like and those that I don't. None of us gets it right every time, including myself. I am my main critic and believe me, you could never understand what a critical brain and pair of eyes I have.

    And I must have gotten it right at least once, because the results and so on all came back positive. This is another reason why I decided to tell B-T not to include any of my mods, because I am hard enough on myself. I mod for me, not for prizes. I do what I want, not for others. And whilst it stays like that I can enjoy it.

    And like I said, work in does not mean prizes out. Everything I do will take me ten times longer than pressing send on a laser cutter. That doesn't, however, mean that the end results look better.

    So yup, just a few cents there and some change for you all.

    I have nothing to add, except to say that constructing your IKEA furniture actually makes you value it almost as much as if you'd built it by hand from scratch and considerably above a pre-fab off-the-shelf product: it's even known as the IKEA Effect.

    I would also like to add. Anything water cooling (like real water cooling not AIOs) is custom and therefore constitutes modding, IMO. You don't run your case through a configuration and get a list of all of the parts you need that will fit and work. It takes planning, and creation.

    That is why they call it a custom loop.

    I misread the list and thought the cables were all purchased, so my bad there. See further below.

    I don't have anything further to add, if Sleeving+custom loop+entire ColdZero catalogue=motm worthy then so be it. It saddens me greatly, but that's just my feelings and opinion.

    I'm just going to say I saw a lot of worse situations in other MOTMs, with "not-so-modded" mods nominated, and we're even talking AIOs and pre-fabricated extensions here... but that's ok, it can happen.
    I understand every point of view stated here, he doesn't have a worklog, he didn't fabricate any of the parts other than cables and custom loop, while in this section you normally see scratch builds, extreme handworks and so on... on the other hand, that build is valuable in taste, execution and overall tidiness, that must be given.
    I still think all the other three nominations are way more fitting for a MOTM, but most people are attracted by minimalism so it will stand out anyway.
