Top 5 participants will be flown to Taipei, Taiwan for a shot at the grand prize.


The grand prize is a million New Taiwan dollars. Unfortunately, it ‘only’ works out to about US$33,333, though that’s still a nice chunk of change. Other prizes are up for grabs too, including up to US$1,000 in cash, Thermaltake gear, and G.Skill parts.Fancy yourself a case modder? Always wanted to be a millionaire? If you answered “yes” to both questions, you should consider entering the ECS Modmen Custom Case Mod Competition. You have until February 28, 2013 to enter and gather up votes, at which time the top 5 vote-getters will be flown to Taipei, Taiwan where a panel of judges will determine the overall winner. Now, about becoming a millionaire…

“Winning the ECS Modmen competition will give someone international notoriety and top-notch cash and prizes,” notes Ivette Huang, ECS Marketing Manager. “We wanted to offer a big cash prize as well as give a few Modders the chance to check out Computex 2013.”

Case mods will be judged on a number of factors, including the overall design, creativity, technique used, motherboard modding, and peer evaluation, ECS says. More info below:
