If you want a chance to win a part of prizes worth an estimated US$15,000 and see yourself as the greatest case modder on this planet, then you want to check out Cooler Master's 2011 case mod competition. The registration opened today and it's open to anyone over the age of 18 worldwide. There are two categories to compete in this year and three prize categories, so even if you're not a professional case modder, there's a good chance of winning a prize.

The two competition categories consist of either modifying a tower case or building your own case mod from scratch. This makes for a very open competition and we should hopefully see some very interesting projects being submitted. The voting will be open to the public and will commence on the 16th of May, so for those that want to compete, the projects have to be finished by the 15th of May. The winners will be announced on the 31st of May which happens to be the first day of Computex this year.

There will be a first prize, two second prize and three third prize winners in each of the categories and there's also a bonus category where Cooler Master will award a special prize to what they think is the project that had the best effort put into it. Prize sponsors include AMD, EVGA, Gigabyte, Kingston, Patriot, PowerColor, THQ, Zotac and of course Cooler Master themselves.

Some of the things you can win include SSD drives, Radeon HD 6900 series graphics cards, motherboards, memory, a bunch of different products from Cooler Master including a case of your choice, a 1200W PSU, coolers, portable chargers, mice and in the case of THQ, it's soon to launch and much anticipated Homefront. Sounds like a competition worth entering to us if you're skilled with power tools and knows how to make a case mod that really stands out.
