During his rounds at QuakeCon, Chris turns his attention to the many case mods on display; both amazing and shameful.

Cases of QuakeCon

 

Several other cases caught my eye at QuakeCon 2008. In no particular order, here they are.

The builder of the first UFO case we listed amongst the truly wicked cases of QuakeCon 2008 is back with another build.

A really nice Cooler Master Wave case with a high quality coat of pearl atop of grinded aluminum. A really great idea that you don't see often.

This Cooler Master Stacker was painted red and black with automotive paint. The owner's father owns an auto painting business and this case certainly means business. The quality of the finish is better than anything coming from the factories and competes with the Smooth Creations work done on the Cooler Master CSX cases.

This builder took it to the next level and incorporated his case mod into the Windows Desktop image.

Case mods aren't just for the big cases; here a Shuttle gets some case mod love.

Lian Li cases are great for their large amount of space. This one holds more hard drives than we wanted to count. All of that heat needed some extra cooling, so this builder added a can controller.

I would like to see this guy try to explain to his boss why he needed to go to Dallas this last weekend. Better yet, imagine going through the airport!

Yellow and Black on the attack.

We all want a Lamborghini; this guy has one. Notice the orange paint that matches the popular car from many fantasies.

The Thermaltake Mozart TX didn't do much for Thermaltake's sales lists but the case is was still very cool. This one houses two systems and several hard drives. Just what you need for a big LAN party; one to leech with, one to game with.

Green with envy, this case uses water to cool the components.

Not to be shown up by green, red was a popular color for many case modders.

Your guess is as good as mine; this mod looks to be a custom unit built from one off parts. The screen on the side appears to have come from a notebook. The owner was not around for us to take a look on the inside and as you can see, the lock on the front kept us from taking a peek.
