Best Case competition Sponsored by Thermaltake

 

So you think you’re a Modder? Do you have something that makes your rig stand out from the rest? Are you looking for a chance to finally reveal that crazy case idea you have had stowed away in the back of your head? Or do you just think your case looks pretty cool. Here is your chance to prove how cool your case really is.

ASLAN together with Thermaltake are bringing you South Australia biggest Custom Case competition of the year! Here is your chance to show off your hard work, and possibly wins some awesome prizes to go with it. Anyone attending the LAN is an entrant. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t got a fully modded case with fibreglass bonnet scoops or phase change cooling, everyone is in with a chance. Cases will be judged on several criteria: Originality, Creativeness, sparkle (How well it is presented) and of course the WOW factor!

The rules are:

  • The case must be present at the LAN
  • The case must have an operating computer in it.
  • Only one case per ticket holder
  • Anyone at the LAN with a registered ticket can enter
  • Judges Decision is final

Prizes will be awarded at the prize ceremony at the end of the LAN. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd also there may be some small prizes for honorable mentions.

But remember the most important thing with this competition is that any one at the LAN can enter, and every case has a chance.

You have to be in it to win it.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is ASLAN?

ASLAN is LAN Party which aims to promote the Air-Stream community wireless and lanning in the northern suburbs.

What do I need to bring to ASLAN?

You'll need your computer system, equipped with a network card (your modem is NOT your network card). We'll provide the tables, chairs, power and necessary network hardware and network cable. We can't always promise more than one power point per lanner so if you need more be sure to bring a power board. We also recommend you bring headphones instead of speakers. If using speakers understand that ASLAN admins may direct you to turn your speakers down so that you will not take away from fellow ASLanners having a good time.
