Gold-Award-introAbout a year ago we re-launched DecryptedTech; prior to that the site was intended to fill in the gaps in other projects that I was working on. However, I soon decided that I wanted to build something new and different from what was already out there. In keeping with this spirit we have decided to hold a modding contest on our Forum. The contest officially opens today and will officially close on April 20th.


The rules are simple;
All work must be your own.
Work logs must be posted or linked on our forum.
You must be able to prove that the work is yours.
You must also be a registered member of our Forum.
DecryptedTech staff and their families are not eligible for this contest.

If you need space to store images for your work logs please contact us and we can set something up for you. At the end of the competition our three “celebrity” judges will pick the winners.

The judges are;

Ramsom Koay - Thermal Take

Our prizes are as follows

1st Place

WillLyonMaximumSecurityEditor's Note: This article was written by one of our own forum members PM_DMNKLR and was voted on by the community as the best written of the entries for November 2011. The article is reproduced here in the same format as it was originally published in our Readers' Blog Forum. Each month we will host a contest for our Forum members to write an article or a review with the chance of being published on our site (as well as win some cool stuff). So now DecryptedTech is happy to bring you November's Winning article;



Computer modding, a discovery of one of the world's greatest subcultures, part 1: "Cultural Diversity"

The PC modding scene is quite a vast one in present day. At it's humble beginnings, quite a few moons ago, it was merely the idea of painting a case to a more peculiar color, installing a light inside of the case somewhere, adding stickers or other similar-style decals, etc., but rarely was anything so much more. Today, however, we have an industry that thrives on not only customizing our own computer periphery, but also custom creation of many components and accessories as well. Present-day computer modifications range anywhere from your basic, average LED case fan add-on, to full-blown scratch-built cases, made out of wood, plastic, steel, aluminum, fiberglass, resin, you name it and someone's making it. Even cooling has gone to the extremes in today's society, where in times of yesteryear, whilst it maintained a basis of adding an additional cooling fan or two to a much-needed area in the case or on a specific component, ie: adding an additional 1 or 2 fans to the CPU's heatsink for example, today's pc's, or "rigs" as we commonly refer to them now, have upwards of extreme liquid or even a TEC (Thermo-Electric-Cooler), also called a Peltier cooler, which transfers electricity throughout it's internal contacts, to create one side as extremely hot, by means of temperature transfer, enabling the surface of which makes contact with the CPU to remain extremely cold, thus also enabling the user to not only have a very, very low CPU temperature, but also enabling them to commit to serious overclocks, while still maintaining such deeply low temperatures.

DecryptedTech Launches Reader Driven Blogs

Logo-01One thing that I am always interested in is input from others. No matter where I have worked (or what sites I have written for) I have taken the input from readers, manufacturers and even PR companies into account. The reason for this is that no matter what is said (even negative comments can be helpful) there is something to learn. Now, don’t get me wrong, I hate it when it turns out I made a mistake or I misunderstood something or even worse… was just dead wrong. However, it happens and I deal with it.

By now I am sure you are wondering what in the world I am going on about… well it was during a conversation with a reader that I began to come up with an idea. Every site has guest writers and guest bloggers. These are usually famous analyst with names that the sites hope will bring readers (both ones that like the analyst and ones that don’t).  But why should they be the only ones that get to voice their opinion, ideas, observations and thought? Truth be told they should not.

DecryptedTech is happy to announce that starting in November we will be opening a user’s blog on our forum. These articles will be written by our readers for our readers. You will have to be a registered member to read these articles. Once you reach 10 posts (real ones not spam…) you gain full access to the blog pages; once you do you will be able to submit your articles and blogs. All articles will be subject to review by a member of DecryptedTech Staff for appropriate content (no political or religious articles please) full rules will be posted inside the blog area. Each month the community will chose the best article (or review) and that will be published on our main site. The winner author will also win a prize to be determined each month.

The Prize for November will be an Asus M4A89TD Pro complete with an AMD Phenom II X4 965 C3 CPU.

We will open the new section shortly and look forward to reading what everyone has to offer.
