    WMD!! I love all of them but I have to vote for WMD since Dark Blade is above the realm of modding (not everyone has a CNC) and I like WMD's looks too :)

    Maybe because AC Ryan is an American company?

    i have to say, all are brilliant mods, but my 2 best would be the Sangaku and WMD... briliantly executed, extremely clean and professional, and definitely out of the box. BF2142, DarkBlade, and the Temple of Nod are original as well... definitely give you that *WOW!* kick to it, but its more of a *accessory mod* instead of a computer enclosure mod... in other words, its abit *overboard*. id rather those *items* as collectibles in my living room, but its too far-fetched to use it as a computer case. IMO of course. where Sangaku and WMD seems out-of-this-world, but in the same time, people would say "that's an AWESOME computer case", instead of "that's an AWESOME.... thing...u got there!...umm..whats it for?".

    the rest i havent mention are great works indeed, but its too...complicated to my taste :) not *clean* enough. with the exception of the Boss one, but that one doesnt have that much of a wow factor to it... please understand :) well it does, but not as much as the Sangaku/WMD.

    Well top 2 for me are Sangaku and Silent ContexYZ. But I think Sangaku is in a class of its own, not what I would consider a casemod, so much as a masterpiece of artwork. Therefore, I voted for Silent ContexYZ. I think the color scheming was very well done and much of the modding was functional and purposeful, meaning no faux wires or unnecessary stick on parts. It was one of the few I wouldn't mind having on my desk, as its not too gaudy or impractical. While original cases are great, I'm oldschool and still like modded cases. Overall, I think practicality and usability is very important, while this case still looks amazing and is much improved over the start case.

    Now this is a contest with some stiff competition. I'm really not sure who i'm voting for but I think WMD might be in order just for the amount of work that went into it and the lack of using CNC machines (they bug me) but we shall see. Good job bit-tech for housing the best mods on the world all in one place (I mean as a whole and not just the ones in this contest).

    Holy smokes! To be in the running with this esteemed list of mods... that is an honor all by itself! I am still dwelling on where to place my vote... it's tough... that is for sure!

    I mean... this list is just phenominal! Wow....

    Good luck to everyone!

    It would definitely be nice to know how many hours of construction time each mod has taken. (I'm sorry if it's said somewhere :rolleyes:)

    I think there's some participiants that can't be compared to the others in some way, but I don't want to be offensive or anything so that's it... Good luck to everybody!

    BOSS: FX57 almost gets my vote. I like the way its still visibly a PC case, but shouts muscle car, and as the blurb says "it evokes the original spirit of case modding".

    But..... WMD edges it for shear sexiness

    Voted for the BOSS: FX57 myself. I like that it's still a PC, as mentioned before. Even though I enjoy viewing the more extreme mods like the WMD, modding (for me anyway) is about modifying a PC case, whereas building an entire new case would be more than 'just' modding. FX57 gets it for sheer slickness. :lol:

    I voted for Silent ContexYZ, I love that yellow theme and I think Mr Koll deserved it. WMD is great too but I only have the one vote.

    I'm going to have to think this one over! There are a couple really great ones out there. I like most of the mods, but the ones I absolutely love are BOSS FX57, Cold Fusion, Dark Blade, Sangaku & WMD. How to choose!!

    Decisions, decisions!!
