If I were a judge and needed to declare a winner of the cases found in the BYOC at QuakeCon 2008, this would be it. The builder found this hard foam Sponge Bob while driving past a yard sale and quickly pulled over to purchase it for 4 Dollars. Once home, he spent the next few days carefully carving the foam out and put a small form factor PC inside. The builder stated to us that every year be builds a one off custom case to take to QuakeCon.

The Halo Helmet mod received a lot of attention at the event. I was not able to speak with the owner of this mod but you can tell a lot of time went into planning the mod and I can say that the outcome was a very clean looking mod.

The Lego Case was very interesting; definitely one that drew a crowd.

The builder of this system spent a great deal of time finding the right mix of add-on parts and innovative design to make a great looking, clean mod.

If you can't fit it all in one case, you might as well mould two together to make a case that is over 5 feet tall. The two cases are bolted together at the bottom, making a mirror image of each other.

Two UFO cases made the list. These cases are very large and make adding mod items very easy. More importantly, they make really good case mods.

The second UFO case mod goes above and beyond simple plug-in mods. The LEDs were custom and are very rare. Each LED can switch between red and white and all of the LEDs are synchronized to change at the same time. The flush mount LCD display at the top of the case adds to its appeal. I want a system like this!

The pictures of this kickarse Grill Case mod were kindly sent to me by its owner after the event. I had heard about this wicked mod during my rounds but was never able to see it in the flesh unfortunately.
