If you're in the habit of giving credence to tired clichés, you're probably aware that a good chef never blames a mistake on his tools. That's not quite true when it comes to case modding. Anybody who's ever tried molding metal (or anything else) into newfound shapes knows that skill is definitely a factor, but even…
German modder Thechoozen loves Wall-E and PC casemods so much that he combined them into this swanky build that, yes, actually moves around his garden.
Case mods provide some giggles, sure, but how many of them that we've seen previously would you have actually bought? If I were in the market for one, this Hammerhead HMR98902 would be top of my list.
Older Xbox 360 consoles often got hot enough to burn toast, this is true, but they never looked that great doing it. Perhaps as a hat tip to that disastrous era, the XToaster360 looks hot, but toasts no longer.
Ben Lzicar, bro, took one of those ugly old beer kegs and turned it into an admittedly flashy piece of PC gaming kit. And, surprising no one, he made sure it had a bottle opener attached to the side.
I'm often pretty sure nothing would be more cathartic than blasting holes in my console. Having Master Chief do the dirty work for me, like in this case mod? All the sweeter. Best of all: you can actually buy it.
If you've been looking for a case mod that will strike fear into all the other computers you come across, well, look no further. But be careful, this guy gets cranky when he needs to defrag.
This impressive Lost case mod incorporates a few disparate elements of everyone's favorite time-jumping mystery island. You've got the whole jungle thing going on and a Dharma Initiative-flavored octagonal shape. Oh, and it can take down airplanes flying overhead.
It's ability to play tunes long gone, this 1951 Zenith H664 Cobra-matic phonograph was born anew thanks to modder Alvin "Mach" Barber.
Finally, an NES cartridge casemod I can get behind without weeping uncontrollably. This one houses a complete library of NES games, uses the original buttons, and hides inside the Super Mario/Duck Hunt combo cartridge. But wait, there's more:
Because the one sentence written about this miniature-living-room-inside-a-PC-case was composed in Russian, i'll just say this—whoever created it is awesome, but they might also be a serial killer.
This amazing case was built from scratch, and would surely make MacGyver—I mean Colonel Jack O'Neill—proud. Modeled after Stargate's Goa'uld Ha'tak starship, the HTPC has a 5-inch PSOne screen, and its lights and motorized door are remote-controlled.
I hate to say it, but a stock Xbox 360 isn't the prettiest gadget in home entertainment. Caking on makeup just masks the problem—what she really needs is a complete makeover. That's where XCM Black Light cases come in.
Holy crap, is this an awesome looking computer. The Edelweiss, created by Pius Giger in Switzerland, is one of the coolest custom rigs I've ever seen.
Indeed, "Red" would undoubtedly approve of this 360 mod by Frank Gonzales. Designed to look like the Right Hand of Doom, this crusty case looks like it could deliver a serious beatdown.
As you can see, modder David Penfold completely went balls out with the orange paint to create his PC homage to the movie A Clockwork Orange.
