Fractal Modding Competition

Fractal have approached me to help me place 5 bundles featuring a Define S case, 2 x Venturi Series HP-12 PWM fans and a Kelvin S24 water cooling unit each.

This isnt your average competition though, you have to make a pitch and tell us what you would do with the kit and why you would have it. We have been picking the 'best person' in the OC3D Freebies threads for a while now so the regulars will know that a couple of lines is not going to cut it.

Please give us a full run down of what you would do with the kit, what mods you would do, lots of insight into your vision of what is possible with the Fractal case and all of the other kit. Some drawings might help and if you are capable some renders too. Maybe some links to build logs on OC3D you have completed. Id honestly treat this like a job interview or if you were going to ask a vendor for hardware sponsorship. We will be looking for genuine enthusiasm and excitement not just someone looking for a free handout.

This may all come across a bit harsh but lets face it, Ive worked online for a long time and Im just trying to discourage the time wasters and spark the determination in the real enthusiasts.

Please post & discuss your ideas in this thread but keep your main pitch posted edited and updated if changes need to be made. I cant stress enough that effort and detail are key factors in making you stand out, a quick 2 minute post will just get left in the shadows.

Winners will get get the bundles sent to them direct from Fractal HQ and once completed featured on the Fractal Design Facebook page and a dedicated front page article on OC3D. You also never know what I might end up doing for those that show commitment and put effort in to their build logs once the kit has arrived.... /carrotdonkey

We will announce the lucky winners on the 5th of October at the latest but we may start telling people that stand out in this thread before hand. Build log updates will be required to be swift and regular and must be complete before 7/12/15 so that Fractal can use them in December on Facebook. Time scales are non negotiable, this is the real world now peeps you cant go letting people down because you left it too late.

Hmmm, now this has got some ideas flowing.

I wonder if I could mod a 420mm rad onto that pump? Or Maybe I would get the window custom engraved...

I need to get a notepad out for some doodling

Hmm fractal designs always need to be clean cut guess we will need to use a ruler for drawing, otherwise is wont look right.

Time to get the old think box turning over, I was gonna mod my 450D but this is much cleaner base. Crayons at the ready boys.

Going to be wicked to see what you guys come up with tbh, Im itching to get this kit sent out.

You always ask for a forum comp - well nows the time to prove why!

A reservoir filling out the complete front... give me some time I might figure it out lol

Terrifictez85 04-09-15 07:55 PM

I will install some white Bitfenix LED strips.......... does that cut the mustard lol
I wish I still had the equipment to mod, was going to do a Fallout 3 mod on the BitFenix Raider but had to move.
Look forward to seeing peoples ideas.

Oh, now this is a competition that I like :).

The Fractal S is a lovely case as stock, going to be a serious challenge to improve upon it.



I already have a build in progress which fits my gaming pc needs, but I do need a new case for my server. How do you make a server build interesting or exciting though?! Hmm...
