Most case mods involve flashy lights, obvious branding, and a shtick of some sort. Brendon Serack's unnamed build is all about clean lines, clean componenets, and clean cable management. It may not be a toaster, but it's still a stunning rig that's more than worthy of being this month's Rig of the Month.
Mathieu “Sassanou Watermod” Heredia is back with another spectacular mod. This time, it’s the Watermod Ares III Desk and it’s exactly what its name implies. A custom-made desk houses an aggressively styled computer based on the Microcool Banchetto K test-bench case. Straight lines, sharp angles, and a clean color scheme are the name of the game in this month’s Rig of the Month.
Computer cases are usually made predominantly of metal and for good reason. Metal's a sturdy material that can support the weight of meaty components. Chris Albee's "Dancing Iridescence" bucks that trend by combining his woodworking skills with his obvious modding abilities. Only the front panel's made of wood, but the complete effect is still stunning and totally worthy of being named this month's Rig of the Month.
James Walter is back with yet another stellar PC for this month's Rig of the Month. It's a lot like his last build, Parvum Titanfall, but that's not a bad thing. James's obvious attention to detail makes a triumphant return in a case that's based on the design of the offical Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Xbox One controller.
We’ve seen quite a range of computer modifications come into our inbox as part of theRig of the Month series, but we haven’t had many as well thought out as Stuart “noobas4urus” Johanson’s Project PCB. This month’s Rig of the Month is lovingly themed after the very PCBs that give it life. Stuart settled on a metallic green fleck paintjob with white accents alongside actual circuit boards that really complete the look.
If you look closely at the thumbnail, you'll see what looks like the Windows Start Menu overlaid on some computer parts. Your eyes aren't deceiving you. This month's Rig of the Month is centered around an incredibly basic, but undeniably awesome idea. Chris “Mosquito” Albee from TheModZoo.com installed an LCD panel—minus the backlight—into the side of a white NZXT H230 case. The result is simply incredible.
We're looking for the coolest custom computer cases and we want your submissions!
We know you guys have got some interesting case mods out there and we want to see them! We're also sure lots of other readers would like to gawk and drool over them as well so let us help you share your cool custom computer case with the world!
This month's Rig of the Month is a bit of an oddball. It's no DotaBox or Weighted Companion Cube, but we still think it's pretty awesome. Anthony Febre was inspired when someone asked if he was running a toaster. It's not the most original insult, but it makes for an amazingly original case mod.
An amazing machine that's straight out of Titanfall
This month’s Rig of the Month is a bit different. Instead of pulling from reader submissions, we’ve reached out to James Walter, who recently completed his latest build: Parvum Titanfall. Based on the design of the limited-edition Xbox One Titanfall controller, Parvum Titanfall is a masterclass in clean, crisp PC building.
A scratch-built case straight out of Defense of the Ancients
Jonathan '-=SpH!Nx=-' Garlit isn't a professional modder, but we're convinced that he's got potential. He's a die-hard fan of Dota, but with a son on the way he's giving up the game to become a full-time father. The DotaBox is a memento that represents seven years and countless hours of Dota matches. Jonathan says he wanted something to commemorate his favorite game and we think he did it justice. Enough that we're happy to make it our July Rig of the Month.
