Cooler Master announces the 2015 Case Mod World Series by inviting all case modders to show-off their creativity and push the limits of PC case design. This year’s panel of judges includes an impressive line-up of modders from around the world making it one of the most prestigious modding competition ever. And thanks to the support of Dremel, Intel, Asus, OCZ and GeIL, there will be over US$25,000 in cash and hardware prizes up for grabs. The Contest begins January 7th.

There will be two categories ‘Tower Mod’ and ‘Scratch Build’. In case you do not know which this means is the the Tower Mod are created from a standard case while the Scratch builds can be made from anything.
This year a change in the voting will be limited to only the the judge panel, which includes:
Richard ‘Darthbeavis’ Surroz

Brian ‘BOD MODS’ Carter
Mathieu ‘Sassanou’ Heredia
and the sponsors.
New this year is a award called the ‘Rising Star’ will be also determined by this panel to identify the future star to watch for in the modding scene.
A ‘People’s Choice’ will be chosen based solely on public voting. So there are plenty of ways to win.
