    I would like to see a contest go either way, full scatch build or casemod, I enjoy both. Being sponsored isnt a bad thing, I am able to put more money into the mod, I have always treid to give back to teh sponsor by talking about ther eproducts at lans also having the work logs viewed by several thousands viewers help. Also I still use my dremal, drill and scroll saw. No fancy tools here.

    It could be quite easy.
    A system of points:
    Good use and harmony of off the shelf products.
    Homemade parts.
    Home modified parts.
    Quality of the mod.
    Quality of the wiring.
    Quality of the finish.
    Paintwork.

    Probably other things to add to that list.

    But one thing to leave out in the points section would be the composents. Because not everybody can afford to buy the latest CPU/Motherboard/Graphics Card/PSU etc....

    do you think it is reasonable to at least expect the components to be able to play modern games?

    I just read this und think about car tuning contests. There are different categorys to win like best paintjob, most HP, most Hifi db, best interieur, best exterieur, best car of a brand and simply best car of all. Maybe this will help.

    Not necessarily. I've seen some HTPC mods that wouldn't play games very well but still have a purpose in modern geek households. The degree of difficulty, attention to detail, creativity...I think those transcend performance. Unless there's a specific reason to exclude certain hardware I think it's more interesting to leave it open. Granted, it might make judging harder if the entries are widely varied in application.

    I think that the most important thing is that computer does what its owner needs it to do, for an example, my main PC (which I am moding bit by bit) will play all the latest games (which is what I want it to do)
    My old rig, is capable of running a lag free MW3 server, is doing what I want it to do.

    You could have some one who just wants to surf the web and watch youtube on their PC, but they might want it to look like R2D2 at the same time.

    I think where mods are concerned, its the visual outcome that counts more than whats inside.

    I think, to have a mod contest is a good idea. It could help the entire ROG community to a higher level - not only by participating but just by watching too. It would be a great inspiration for all of us!

    However, if you are calling it "contest", it has to be fair! Comparing the works of amateurs with those of pros would rather create frustrations and disappointment. Creating different categories, different levels for the contest would be a nice way to satisfy everybody.

    First of all, modding and scratch building must be completely separated, the work invested in them is very different. Also, when we are talking about modding, we can realize that it has different levels. Removing a hard drive cage from a default factory setting is already modifying the case, as well as cutting a side panel window or adding additional panels to the build.

    So, my suggestion is to make at least 4 categories for modding (scratch building could be the 5th category):
    1. basic (removing/changing case components like drive bay cages or case feet),
    2. moderate (do some cutting or minimal paint work),
    3. advanced (serious modifications: redesign existing components of the case or design completely new ones) and
    4. pro (all of those modifications made by people whom make a living from this)

    I am not sure, if the 5th, scratch building category needs further divisions. Who can make such things, those are the real pros!

    I saw that were discussions about the components too. Well, I think the only restriction here should be that the build have to be functional - and, maybe, has to contain Asus ROG parts (since this is a ROG forum). Taking in consideration the level of the parts (whether they are the newest or older) would exclude the individual inputs of the builders and would make this contest restricted to the money question- anyway, the the big companies have their own contest on who is making the best parts.
