    Default TGS's Matrix Challenge!


    Okay boys and girls, it's time once again to show this community what you're made of. That's right, it's another contest giveaway from forum regular TGS (thegreatsatan). Sharpen your pencils, draw the shades, put on your pyramid hats and let the creative mojo flow. If your worklog entry proves superior you will be the proud owner of the Matrix Casemod with Sentinel Creature by none other than TGS himself. He will also be including a photocopy of PC Enthusiast magazine where the mod was featured. Wow, you could own a piece of history . Here is a glance at the goodie...





    And here are the details straight from the man's keyboard...

    Time to give something away. The contest entails modding a specific component. Some examples would be:

    Fan
    Heatsink
    Reservoir
    Case window
    DVD drive
    Floppy drive, etc.

    This is not a case modding contest.

    When the component is complete it must still work. It must do the job is was made for. The member must explain why his/her mod should be a new version that could be sold in stores. In other words, if you put a window on a CD drive you must tell me why you think manufacturers should put windows on their CD drives. "Because it's cool", will not suffice. Why will people want to buy one of these? How will it help show off their case?

    All entries must have worklogs here at TBCS and they must be new projects and new worklogs for this contest, no old mods will be accepted. All participants must be TBCS members with at least 50 posts and in good standing and only one entry per person is allowed.

    The winner will receive my [empty] Matrix Case complete with Sentinel creature. I will also include a color photocopy of the PC Enthusiast magazine, where the case appeared. I will ship anywhere in the world, FREE. Contest starts on August 19th. It will end on Thursday, Sept 20th at 11:59 PM Central time.

    The contest will be judged by me. The results of which will not reflect badly on TBCS or its staff, it just shows the giving nature of one of it's many members. I'm asking permission to hold it here. This is my favorite site and I want to keep giving back to the members that give me so much.

    TGS




    On you marks....Get set....MOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh, forgot to mention. Since nobody knew about this other than admins, as far as I'm concerned staff are eligible unless TGS objects. Obviously admins are not, sorry Paul.

    Staff is fine by me.

    I'll also throw in the Matrix Screen [saver] Locker on CD. It has that cool falling numbers/letters/symbols

    Here is a glance at the screensaver in progress, it's awesome.

    Note: Monitor, keyboard, mouse, mousepad, and anything else in this pic other than the mod are not included in the prizes.

    Also, PSU's are NOT allowable mods as they are too dangerous to be poking around in.

    Why are you donating it for the contest anyway? It's a very nice matching set-up, and unless you build a second matrix case then your gonna most likely have to re-mod your monitor,mousepad and what not.

    I threw out the mousepad and mouse. The monitor just had a sticker on it which I peeled off. The keyboard is setting aside
