It is Sunday evening here at the Gaylord Hotel Resort just out of Dallas, Texas and the annual QuakeCon 2004 gaming convention has come to an end.

Over the last few days at QuakeCon, I walked around the BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) area several different times and checked out the local case modding talent, expecting to see just a few decent mods here and there. I was wrong. The BYOC area was packed full of interesting and very talented case mods in all sorts of forms - Small Form Factor all the way up to lawn mower computers - yes, I'm not kidding!

VIA Technology was one of the sponsors of QuakeCon this year for the third year in a row and were running a case modding competition during the convention giving away a stack of cash to gamers with the best mods judged by VIA employees from Australia and Taiwan - that is why you will see VIA signs near a bunch of the case mods over the following pages. The Taiwanese chipset company even had a few case mods of their own at their booth in the vendor area which we will also take a look at in this article.

This article will act mostly as a pictorial of the most exciting case mods we saw at the BYOC area of QuakeCon this year. Over the next seven pages you'll see a total of 70 case mods with everything from windows and neon light case mods all the way up to systems completely submerged in liquid and ghetto style cardboard cases and a bunch of others which are beyond description. Gamers from around North America definitely have some good modding skills; let's take a look at what was on display at one of the biggest LAN parties in the world.
