Cooler Master has announced details of the Case Mod World Series 2016, a competitive event designed to find the greatest PC modders in the world.
The firm is offering up S$30,000 in cash and prizes and has brought together sponsors such as ASUS, Avexir, Dremel, NVIDIA, and OCZ to support and engage with the PC modding community.
The Case Mod World Series is now in its seventh instalment and this year and Cooler Master is expanding the scope of the series to include local meet and greets, as well as modding sessions.
“Modding has exploded in recent years and is taking root in every corner of the globe. The Case Mod World Series is about fuelling that growth. It’s about igniting the modding spirit – the maker spirit – on the web and right in your community,” said Michelle Wu, global community manager.
“This year, we will be running local events to involve modders everywhere. Together, with the generous support of our sponsors, we hope to enable the modding community the world over.”
Judges on this year’s panel will feature recognised names from the world of tech as well as the event’s sponsors. From their respective fields of expertise, they will be basing their scores on four equally weighted areas – complexity, design, originality, and overall look.
As well as the prize money, modders are encourage to get involved so they can share their creative design and passion for all things PC with a worldwide audience and fire up their creative juices with other local modders through regional events.
