      When I go to my profile it shows the following:

      Thank you for participating GIGABYTE 30th Anniversary Mod Contest.
      You have completed your profile. You still can view your profile but cannot edit it.


      I cannot add or edit any photos. The only photos on the site are my concept photos.

        It looks like pretty much everyone did that as well except for those who have not uploaded their profile yet but have registered.

            Hi NavyChief, your account has been re-opened by Gigabyte so you can edit the photos on your Mod2Win profile.

            Final reminder for the deadline which is tomorrow November 15, 11:59 PST.

            For everyone else having trouble editing their profile on the Gigabyte mod2win website, the registration has been reopened so users can either resubmit a profile or leave a message here so I can forward to Gigabyte and they can re-open the account on their end.

              Thanks for the prompt action!

              Glad to hear that the final photo deadline is tomorrow (Nov 15) at 11:59PM PST. That gives me a little breather room for photos.

              Spent most of the day loading a Windows 10 OS and the applicable drivers. Now the video card RGB lights are blue like the rest of the lights in the build. All hardware was detected with no faults either!

              Should be posting final photos either late tonight or tomorrow. Photos will be posted to both this build log and the official Gigabyte Mod2Win profile page.

                Two last build photos...

                In order to mount a GPU vertically you must have a PCI-e extender cable. I ordered one from Lian Li that is 380mm long and extremely well designed.



                The fabric covering the cabling is smooth and flat black.

                  Finally all complete!!!!

                  Took around 250 photos and narrowed it down to the ones below. Now I have to decide which 5 to upload to the Mod2Win site.

                  The project was definitely challenging in that I have never had to create a concept before and then sticking to it was brutal. There are some aspects that I would have liked to change but the rules stated that design kit winners could not deviate from their concept drawing.

                  The infinity mirror came out perfectly! When off, it is a normal mirror; when on, then the blue infinity aspect shows nicely. I used the case sticker that came with the GPU since parts of it were mirrored. The custom side and top fan grills add the Gigabyte 30th Anniversary logo to the case exterior. The custom reservoir was brutal since there is only about an inch of clearance behind the motherboard tray. It fit and holds a tremendous amount of liquid. The RGB midplate was fun to create and allows me to change the color at will!

                  Mounting the GPU in the vertical position makes it appear to float over the midplate!

                  I pretty much stuck within the contest parameters and utilized all the sponsors hardware/services (Corsair, EKWB, HyperX, Gigabyte and PCPartPicker). To maximize the points, the theme is the Gigabyte 30th Anniversary and uses blue throughout.

                  I just wish that my photo skills were more in tune with my modding capabilities!

                  Well, here some the photos that I thought showed off the important aspects of the build...

                    When I tried to upload 5 final photos to the Mod2Win site, I received the following error.



                    Server Error in '/Mod2Win' Application.

                    Access to the path 'D:\Website\EventUs\2015\Mod2Win\upload\glmurphy@h otmail.com_Image_1.jpg' is denied.

                    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

                    Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'D:\Website\EventUs\2015\Mod2Win\upload\glmurphy@h otmail.com_Image_1.jpg' is denied.

                    ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6 and IIS 7, and the configured application pool identity on IIS 7.5) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

                    To grant ASP.NET access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access.

                      I don't know, but since they've opened up the reg to let people re-register, you might try that???

                          Think it's public voting for the fan favorite.

                              Thanks for the compliments! My photo skills are still in their infancy, but trying to get better.

                              I really like how the results will be posted quickly. No long delays.
