- Modder of the month - November

Case modding your cup'o'tea? - Creative Mods have announced their november modder of the month "David Mendicino" who shares his strong background in computer case modding with a rather large 7,000+ word article. Whether you've modded before or not, you're sure to find this comprehensive article very interesting i'm sure.

 

I have been case modding for several years, but only in brief spurts. My most recent case is my third, and the first that I built completely from scratch. My first mod was very primitive in nature and more functional than for looks. (The large square hole was simply to act as an intake for a 120mm fan. My second case was a better mod, with a much nicer paint job, a cleaner cut side window and better lighting. I experimented with wire loom and basic cable management. I am a light weight when it came to modding.

 

Generally, I mod when I get a new computer and that has only been two times since I got my first PC, an Intel P2-350. This last mod, the most complex of them all, was a decision of whether to upgrade the computer, or build a new case for what I had. I was going to buy a new computer and get a small case and do the standard paint and cut job, but since I felt the computer industry (at least Intel's side), was in a bit of flux with new technologies such as PCI-E, new chips and new chipsets, I thought I would take the money and completely build a modded case from scratch.
