BitFenix has launched their first modding competition and there is an interesting spin to the way they are holding the event. While there is a modding contest part of the event which BitFenix calls ‘ModTime’, there will also be a chance for modders to offer up their builds for auction, making what is essentially an open platform marketplace showcase of sorts. Obviously, BitFenix products are required for entry. Currently there are 33 cases entered at the time of this review from all over the world including notable modders such as Pakawat “EPiC” Chaiboonma from Thailand and some even have multiple entries submitted like Franco Warboy from Italy. Non-modders can vote for the winner online.
