Win a Trip to Taipei With GIGABYTE

GIGABYTE wants to send you to Computex 2016 in Taipei, Taiwan!

In collaboration with our partners at Modders-inc and sponsors Intel, Nvidia, Enermax, Kingston, Corsair and Ekwb, we've launched a case mod competition to celebrate our 30th anniversary and the winner gets an all-expenses paid trip to Computex 2016 this June.

The rules are simple: sign up for an account at Modders-inc, and post an introduction in the GIGABYTE 30th Anniversary Worklog thread. You'll need to post frequent worklog updates in that thread as you complete your build. Remember, you need to have either a GIGABYTE 30th anniversary theme or use the specific GIGABYTE Blue. Full contest details are available on our website here. 

Hope to see you in Taipei!

SlipperySkip latest build: SkyVue

We've been publishing so much of his work that by now you guys must be pretty familiar with Jeffrey Stephenson, a professional case modder, also known as SlipperySkip. Jeffrey specializes in making elegant and good looking retro style cases for small HTPCs.

And great news, his latest project has just been finished. We here now present you SkyVue!

The specs for his latest creation are quite impressive as well, using simply what the latest technology has to offer.

From The Verge: "His latest is the art deco-inspired SkyVue, which uses mahogany-like sapele wood and aluminum trim to mimic the look of a 1930s skyscraper... If you owned this mod you'd probably start off thinking it was just a good signature piece for your room, and then a week or so later you'd be scouring eBay for an art deco desk, chair, and hatstand to match, all while humming "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" "

We couldn't agree more, with such a good looking tower, you definitely need the whole room to match!!
