The International German Casemodding ChampionshipSince 2002, the DCMM (translated: International German Casemod Championship) is an established event in the casemodding-industry. As an annual highlight in the casemodding-szene, the DCMM takes place at the XPERION Saturn E-Arena in Cologne.
The top of the international Casemodding-elite meets there and presents their exhibits crafted in many hours of work. Experts from the casemodding-szene evaluate the cases, which were elected in a pre-online-voting on the basis of fix criteria. The categories are: CaseMod, CaseCon, CE-Mod, Livemodding-Challenge and CAM-Mods.
During the three days of the venue, teams with two members each will compete in the category of live-modding. They are granted up to 24 hours over the three days to style up the looks of their PC-cases.
Casemods (case modification) - includes modded serial-cases
Casecons (case construction) - includes entirely self-planned and self-constructed cases
CE-Mods (consumer electronics) - includes remodeled cases like toasters or coffee makers
Live-Modding-Challenge (cases crafted on site during the first three days of the venue)
CAM-Kategorie (computer aided modding)
For the first time, machine-made cases and parts will be judged by the jury at the computer aided modding-category. Special attention is paid to the design factor. This is a special category. Cases from all other categories will be judged.
Most Spectacular Creation
"Germany´s most spectacular creation" will be elected by the visitors of the DCMM. (Casmods, Casecons, CE-mods, CAM-Mods or the constructions crafted during the Live-Modding-Challenge are no longer broken up into different categories for this election) The election will be based on the audience´s personal opinion alone, as opposed to the jury s evaluation process, where mainly smaller details, as well as craftsmanship are essential factors for the jury to give out high ratings.
