An Attractive Case Mod You Can Actually Buy

Illustration for article titled An Attractive Case Mod You Can Actually Buy

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.


Designer Matthew Kim is selling them for $2,899, and as he makes them himself (by hand), orders understandably take a while to fill—two weeks, to be exact. Specs include:

Blue CNC brushed and anodized aluminum frame
Supermatte White Ecoresin panels with Mil-Spec quick release system(motherboard side only)
2.8Ghz Intel Core i7-860 cpu
4 Gb ram
1 40 gb Intel solid state disk drive
1 640 Gb front loaded "hot-swappable" hard drive
1 extra hot-swap tray for a second hard drive
nVidia ENGTX460 graphics card
Optical CD/DVD drive
Kingston 750W modular power supply
Windows 7 64-bit Home premium

But you can obviously swap them out for your preferred choice. This particular one comes affixed with blue LEDs, but two more models, the HMR98903 & HMR98904, are available in black brushed anodized carbon, and quattro carbon trim. [Darwin Machine via Case Mod Blog via Technabob]

How is this a case mod? It's more of custom case with a computer included for the price. For reference, the "mod" in "case mod" stands for MODification. If you put it together with parts fabricated in a CNC machine, then it's not a case mod, it's just a really expensive case.
