    Voted for Dark Blade, but WMD was a close second.

    ACRyan wants to give away one of these to a random thread participant:

    http://www.acryan.com/alubox/ACR-HD50190.shtml

    A very nice ethernet/USB combo external drive caddy ;)

    The first person to come up with a list of the mods and the gambling-style odds on them, based on the feedback in this thread, gets it.

    Righty in order from favourite down:

    WMD: 1.87 : 1
    Dark Blade: 3.3 : 1
    Sangaku: 5.14 : 1
    Boss FX57: 7.6 : 1
    Silent ContexYZ : 9.75 : 1
    Cold Fusion: 42 : 1
    Biomech 550: 42 : 1
    BF2142: N/A
    Extreme Lian-Li: N/A
    Spiderman 4: N/A
    Temple Of Nod: N/A

    All values are not perfectly statisticly applicable, values based on exit polls and people who said "I have voted for" not "I have to decide between X and Y but I think X may get my vote"

    EDIT: Will, if you pass through to me actual values you have (confidentially obviously) I can make it more relevant and less like an American Election

    Done, I used the "Send email to will harris" form, hope it makes it.

    I'll keep the odds upto date though, once every day or so, whenever a change in odds has occured.

    I'm sad to see that. As of your count Temple of Nod had zero exit pole votes but it was in my top two.

    Maybe I just missed this but: If I have multiple e-mail addresses could I vote again or do only votes from registered e-mail addresses count? I don't want to skew the results but I think it's a valid question as to what is and isn't allowed. It would be nice to see some official contest rules.

    Yes I was thinking that too, as I have two e-mails I regularly use, and had to choose between two mods, I choose in the end, but was wondering the same thing.

    Doesn't have to be a bit-tech member from my count, anyone with an email address.

    And I didn't count "Top X votes" only "I voted for ZZZ".

    Nice prize but under that rule it's not really to "a random thread participant". It's more of a contest within a contest. Go Doug

    like this (link)? :D

    sooo difficult to choose from...I picked SilentContexYZ. Most likely to be reproduced...And It's his first attempt, which is hard to believe...
    WMD and Darkblade are too One-of a kind for me,although I do love WMD... And honorable mention for Sangaku ! Wood is a noble material.

    It may be the most obvious choice but so far i have choosen WMD because of the sheer ingenuity g-nome has, just the concept deservses to win! He managed to fit a square peg in a circular hole (literally) and with such style. Damn i just want that case now!!

    second came Sangaku for me, one of the least common materials used for a comp case and he has such skill with it, damn sexy case but i think g-nome just wins for me!
    +AC ryan prizes!!! thanks to them for recognising bit-tech!

    It was very close for me between Sangaku and WMD, although I voted Sangaku in the end - just slightly more to my style. But congrats to all the great mods in the running for this.
