Case Mod Madness
So you wish you were here, well we wish you were here too. But since you?re not and we are we are going to do our best to show you the best of the LAN. We spent a good portion of our day just combing through over 3,000 Bring Your Own Computers, looking for the best of the best.
I can?t even imagine how much time and work went into this case, all the custom paint, embossing, cutting, and even the etching in the glass. If you can?t tell from the picture its Tolkien elvish engraved in the side.
Just looking at this case gives me wood? well more like a splinter. Still its nice to see people moving out of traditional materials and using different stuff.
MHz on tap? Damn sure! I never got the chance to ask what is running in there but I would guess that?s it?s a VIA C3, as I have yet to see a Pentium M motherboard that small.
While this is nothing special the quality of the cutting was very good. This kid has some of the best dremel work at the LAN.
Caution Lanparty at work. That DFI Lanparty SLI complements the construction paint scheme and diamond plate very well.
Old school is in, DK is back on the block, and this guy makes sure you know it. Yes its functional and boots to windows.
In an attempt to prove that size doesn?t matter this guy may take the prize. This may be the smallest form factor PC at the lan. He even took the time to fold the ribbon cables and route them under the motherboard to keep them from blocking air flow.
I think this case is haunted.
