Thank you for the opportunity to post my work here! I heard from a friend what a great froum this is.

This is my website, Mnpctech.com Case Modding feeds my family, pays the mortgage. I eat, sleep and breath case mods. It gets under your skin for life doesn't it?.

I'm always working on something. You can watch my case mods on my http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=MonsterMawd




The Mod Nation Team Project! "Marvel Comic's Ghost Rider"











I've worked on Psychosis on/off in my free time over past 2 years. It's for my kids. I wanted to build something that would teach my kids about computers. Easily see how everything works while incorporating art. I build my creations so they can withstand pshyical abuse. You can touch and pull on things without worrying if it will break. In other words, "kid proof"

I do all of my own work "off the cuff" without any prior planning or sketching. I find that building/modding is much more enjoyable when I follow my gut. I build what I would want on my own desk. I find a lot of my ideas in scrap automotive & industrial parts. I'll pick up a disgarded part and imagine it morphing it into something else. I love reviving something old with a new life. Thats probally why I've enjoyed modding old computer cases for so long.



HARLEY DAVIDSON


HELLBOUND










Venom

Addtronics 7896A Full Tower

Mnpctech modified this case for a customer who wanted a Yellow & Blue Case themed after West Coast Choppers



Sunbeam 5.25 Bay Rheostat Fan controls with silver anodized knobs. I love the simplicity of these controllers. They're also very reliable!



12 volt gauge I pulled from an 1984 VW Golf GTI. I disected it, removed the black paint from the bezel ring and clearcoated it to prevent rusting. I repainted the gauge face & needle with Yellow/ Blue Flame color theme.



Crossflow cooling for optical drive bays (neccessary? not really, but looked cool!) 2, 92mm intake fans in each side panel. The steel mesh grills were made with modders mesh. You need to clearcoat the steel mesh if you plan to leave it bare. Otherwise it will rust.



You can't see it very well, but I used a race car hood pin to latch the side panel door. More detail pics at the bottom of this post!



That knob in the back is a fan speed controller I added for the rear exhaust fan.







The top blowhole fan.
The ring is from a machined alum fuel cap assembly for a motorcycle gas tank.
I found this one at a local Harley Davidson dealership. It's very small tho, only a 60mm fan will fit the dimension.





The door latch was made from a anodized blue Race Car Hood pin.





The threaded rod was mounted (welded) upon a custom bracket that attaches to the front 120mm fan





The Wall









WoW Mod


Another shot of the blowhole

Final shots.














PimpRig Tribute (2 watercooled computers, one case)
