Hey hey guys Nick here from Dirty South PC Mods and Modders-Inc. Back to bring you another awesome mod. This time it is based off of the Doom or Quake video game series I'm not sure witch at this point. Brought to you by the good folks at Thermaltake And by the awesome crew at Modders-Inc The following are the rules of the competition that I must adhere to. 1) We each start of the with the same case, the Thermaltake X1 2) Each person can only spend $250 USD to create the actual case mod. Taxes are not included in the total for the $250 USD 3) A theme was picked to help keep us on the same playing field. You can pick from either the DOOM universe or the Quake universe or both 4) Our completion time is from right now to July first. (This could get pushed back one week, please shoot for this date) 5) All work on the mod must be done by the modder 6) If you need to have something created that you cannot make yourself from what you have on hand (Graphics, 3D printing, media blasting, cutting metal and etc) you MUST deduct this from the $250. NO FRIEND OR BARTERING pricing is allowed. We want to represent the actual cost of creating the mods. 7) You can use what you have on hand but you need to deduct CURRENT value from the $250. (Just because you have $1000 worth of something lying around doesn't mean you can use it for free) 8) Hardware (motherboard, CPU, Coolers and WC, RAM, ROM Drives, graphic cards, storage media) is optional. BUT if you have to "mod" the hardware the cost MUST be deducted from the $250. 9) Tools bought to create the mod are NOT counted against the $250 USD. 10) You MUST do a work log in the Modders-Inc forums for it to be in the contest. It can be either images or videos. 11) The case must be on display at QuakeCon 2015 to be part of the contest. First up lets take a look at the Thermaltake Core X1 ITX case that I will be using as the platform for the build.
