    Was a really hard decision to make as I really loved the ideas that people came up with for this competition. There are four or five entries that I particularly enjoyed following during their build stage. Who ever wins will be more than deserving.

    More comps like this please!!

    I have to agree. There are several builds that I love for completely different reasons.

    Irrelevant of who wins overall all of the entrants have produced amazing cases/mods and should be treated as the mini mod gods they are. :thumbup:

    Wet Pi is so seriously awesome. It just has to win.
    I got to see the REPTO-AM-PI-BICUS live and I have to say it looks much better live than on these pictures - I like it because it's different.
    I also like the Lego Case! It wouldn't be a proper R-Pi competition without one!

    And thanks to the guys who voted for me!

    So long :0)

    I based my vote on the system that would would have my lounge/playroom. (If I designed another one)

    So Blinky & PiQu got my vote.

    Blinky I love the humour of the little ghost sitting in my shelves, and PiSu I like the fact that its a computer that doesn't have the solid industrial technical feeling that a PC brings to a room, that soft box would sit quite happily in a soft relaxing room where most PC's would look crazy.

    Wet Pi is going to win. It's insane, pointless, impractical and beautiful enough to appeal to the typical voting bit-techie.

    Nothing original about it though I'm afraid. Yes it may be the first water cooled Pi but that doesn't make it original. People have been producing wonderful watercooled mods on hardware that didn't need it for a long time (Even before such wonders as Angel ODs Wii UNLimited Edition).

    So as good as it is, I won't be voting for it and my vote is going for something original.

    We're blasé over excessive watercooling now? :lol:

    There were lots of great results. There was even a second entry by DerGeorge and another really cool start that didn't get done in time. Poking the community ant pile occasionally keeps the members active, and gets others to join. Promise us you make it a regular thing.

    Voting as a modder, not what I'd want in a room or other basis.

    Some awesome projects in this lot & nice newcomer entries along with experienced recycle projects, most basic to advanced methods & something for everyone I think, awesome entries everyone. :clap::dremel:

    Golden Wet Pi. :jawdrop: Win, lose or draw he got gold water Pi trophy & a stand out project so far this year due to the extremity of it. :D

    Narrowing things down from such a range ain't easy when you like them all for there own reasons as well as knowing how some will have wider appeal to some but I chose REPTO-AM-PI-BICUS, abbas did awesome on that Rubik's cube discombobulated alligator pie, bet it looks amazing in reality & it's perfectly cased in. :)

    Those alligator paws are the size of a thumb tip, that's extreme skill. :eeek::dremel::jawdrop:

    +1 :)

    With the Wet Pi, how did he get all the air out of the system? He has to get all the air out as his pump is above the reservoir and it any air was left in the system, it would mean the pump would run dry (from how I interpret it, though I don't know too much about fluid dynamics)

    There is a drain hold at the back of the res, I put coolant in the loop and turned it all upside down to let gravity run through the loop. Then I ran the pump and filled the res while the pump was pushing all the air out of the loop then plugged the drain hole. And done! :D

    There is some GREAT work in there, well done to everyone. WetPI was amazing the first time I read and saw it, still is stunning. Phame - I have watercooled down to mini itx, but seriously! a RPi!?? Nice work, love the gold plating.
