New to Case Modding
« on: April 18, 2005, 12:00:28 pm »
Hey guys, I've recently been overcome with fascination for case modding and I was wondering if you guys could hook me up with some sites with tutorials on how to go about modding a case. I really want to begin my own case as soon as I can get my hands on some money and I thought that I could be studying up while I saved the money. Any help you guys can give me is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A good place to start is somewhere flashy, that makes you want to do that kind of work.

I'll throw in my recomendation for PimpRig's Guides Section. they do some amazing paint jobs

anything goes in this "art" i guess i could call it, this is personal just like a truck or car
Remember kids, if you happen to find yourself upside down and on fire, you've just discovered the meaning of "too fast".

We've got some members here who have done a little bit of everything.  Seeker has modded two cases into one, Nicao, Howdy Duty, Lobbdogg, Missileman, and I (I'm sure there are others) have all watercooled our PC's and have a bit of experience in hacking and whacking.  GOLIATH has done some pretty sweet mods as well.  Also Marauding Demon, and Death have posted up some pics I believe.  There is a wealth of knowledge here, and I know that all of us would be happy to help any way we can.

A great site for insperation is www.casemodgod.com not that the ones posted above aren't enough. Also you can do some very cool mods with very little money, you just have to look for everyday household items. Take a funnel for example, used in the kitchen and it is like $.50 to buy yet if you cut it in half you have a fan duct for the front on a case,and it will look good too. What do you have for tools? You dont need to buy a dremel right away, a jigsaw will work and so will a $10 handnibbler for straight lines. I use a Black and Decker Wizard, it is a rotary tool like the dremel and so far it works awsome.

Edit: Here is a link to the Funnel Duct how to. http://www.2cooltek.com/case103_1.html
