Search begins for Australia's best modder

A nationwide hunt is underway for the best PC modders in Australia, with a 3.2GHz PC on offer for the winner of the Intel PC Mod Challenge.

The top eight entries will be showcased at the Australian finals of the World Cyber Games (WCG), to be held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre on 30-31 August.

The Australian finals will host about 100 gamers who have progressed through their respective state competitions. Those who become national champions will travel to Seoul, Korea, in October, to battle 55 other nations at the WCG Finals.

Entries for the Intel PC Mod Challenge must be functional and use a Pentium 4 processor.

Intel and media representatives will judge entries on creativity, technical skill, performance and functionality.

The major prize is a new PC with a 3.2GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor with Hyper-Threading Technology and Intel 865 chipset.

Entrants must send a photo of their modified PC, along with a one-page description of the entry and an explanation of why a high performance processor enhances the mod. All correspondence is to be sent to caseyw@spectrumcomms.com.au.

Entries close 22 August.

One Western Australian enthusiast has built a fully-functional, high-spec PC with the project name of “JellyBean” into a model car shell.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
