Case Mods stories

Quakecon's headlining event is the Bring-Your-Own-Computer (BYOC) LAN party. It's the largest annual LAN party in North America. This year's event brought nearly 3,000 machines together to share a two-gigabit connection in the Dallas Hilton Anatole. Besides the good games and good people, the BYOC also brings out the more creative types. There were a few amazing computer case-mods at this year's show. On the final day of the show, sponsor Modders-Inc brought seven incredible mods together, and we got to get up close with the one-of-a-kind machines.
Gaming rigs may be all about the guts on the inside, but some folks turn their powerful machines into little monuments that celebrate the hobby. At the Computex tech expo in Taipei, tons of fetching mods were on display, from professionally done game and movie tie-ins, to custom hack jobs. Up top is a good example of the weird shapes a computer case can take. Down in the gallery are some more: from Iron Man to Borderlands 2, and even a case that adds what we can only guess is an anti-physical media missile array.
