Ron Perillo / 3 years ago
Twelve of the world’s top case modders have been invited to participate in the second season of the Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational and they brought in some big guns…in some cases literally, delivering astounding works of art and some of the most ambitious casemods ever assembled. For five months, the casemodders from the United States, Ecuador, Brazil, Germany, France, Poland, Russia, China, India, Thailand, Malaysia and Australia have been building custom rigs built upon a foundation of Thermaltake’s own Core X71 case or Core X5 ATX cube chassis. All other components are liquid cooled with Thermaltake’s Liquid cooling products and powered by Thermaltake’s DPS G RGB 1250W Titanium power supply.
Users can also participate and vote for their favorite mods and get the chance to win prizes from January 20 through February 3. Voting participation requires registration on Thermaltake’s Tt community and users can also vote via the Tt MOD App. Prizes for voters include a Thermaltake “The Tower 900” E-ATX Super Tower, Thermaltake View 27 Gull-Wing Window ATX Mid-Tower Chassis, Toughpower DPS G RGB 850W Gold, Riing 12 LED RGB TT Premium Edition 3-Fan Pack, and a Water 3.0 Riing RGB 240. Prizes for the top modders who participated include a grand cash prize of $6000 USD, followed by $5000 and $4000 for the second and third place.
