    OK, I'm behind schedule. Sue me. Here's round two of the Indy casemods. Probably not as exciting as round one, but blue nonetheless.

    And because I'm lazy, I'm going to consolidate several replies into this thread :)

    Thanks :) I do wonder if the BeBox can be considered the first true casemod, though, even if the blinkenlights were factory-standard.

The purple wire ties are just a conceession to Martha Stewart color correctness and does not speed electrons along to give you the added megahurtz! How do I know this? I watched Too Fast Too Furious repeatedly.
    My purple cable ties may not have the megahertz of the yellow ones, but I plan to make up for it with ground effects and spoilers. Three-tier spoilers, even.

    Fuck that. Beat the holy living crap out of him, *then* let him grab a place in the bread line. People like that deserve a good ass-kicking.

    i remember seeing photos on slashdot of some very expensive Sun servers that some moron had "casemodded".

    I'll get the photos of the latest round of mods up later tonight.

    There's a difference between mods for style, and just ugly

    Porn, god bless it, gives us bandwdth

    Besides, the ram would look dope as hell with a clear side panel, running the liquid cooling clear tubing with with green UV dye added.

    I was happy last week to order a nice stick of DDR 3200 (400MHz fsb) with copper heat sinks. 1 GIG. Single stick.

    I had big boner.

    I'm still considering making my next rig submersable using dyalectric oils. No heat sinks or fans needed.

    Sealed acrylic case, and just drop everything into the oil.

    Unfortunatly, no fish.

    As for the Ram, I've never understood the whole case modding thing. I don't need any lights to tell me if my RAM is fried.

    As long as it works I don't care what it looks like. Which might explain why I've had systems built into cardboard boxes on occasion.

    Vid Conf: The girls don't want to actually SEE the other side. One way streaming is working just fine. Thus, it's as far as it's going to go.

    Case modding: It's art. High tech geek art. Some peopel are hapy with plain beige case. Other people Want to have what looks like a futuristic Oni-Sendai 3205-B cyber deck.

    Me? I just want my dermatrodes and an interface jack.

    It looks like you did something to make it fast, but its still a POS sedan. At least thats what we did back in the day.

    Kids have it much easier today, you paint a POS compact car yellow, slap on a bunch of stickers, and hoseclamp a coffee can tailpipe. Voila, instant Type R!

    How many of these people think the 10'ft spoiler accually does something? And why would you put it on a 97 corolla?
