Masterpieces of domestic modding

    Since such a booze has begun, the tendency to consider and discuss modding cases, I will highlight the masterpieces of domestic modding. Perhaps, not the most beautiful cases will be described here, but some of the most famous ones that are not just gathering dust under the table.

    Modding appeared in Russia at the beginning of the last decade. But active development began in 2005. It was then that good work began to appear, including custom cases.

    One of the first successful Russian projects is Mecanique.

    image


    The mod was based on the Chieftec AH-01SL-U case.

    image

    First of all, a “head” was made for the case:

    image

    it does not carry a functional load. Only decorative.

    image

    Well and naturally, the most beautiful wall was further made, which served as the main highlight of the case:

    image

    The result is one of the first worthwhile domestic works.

    image

    At the same time, the “Serpent” appears in the arena of Russian modding, creating more than one building and becoming one of the most famous modders. The project (it seems) was called BombPC.

    image

    Unfortunately, there is no work in progress, so we can only enjoy the photos of the case we have already assembled.

    image

    image

    Not the most successful Ferrari project was made in 2005, but after repainting already in 2006, the case changed and began to look much better.

    image

    The engraving on the side window is mesmerizing.

    image

    The author even took care of the carrying handles.

    image

    The case turned out really "Ferrari".

    image

    An interesting work pleased us modder xooler.

    image

    The title of the work is MAXX Project.

    image

    The case is an enlarged copy of the GeForce 7950GX2.

    image

    And again, the case from the Snake - AkasaBuild.

    image

    The name of the corps was a contest, for which modding was done.

    image

    The case is very thin.

    image

    We can say that this is the first nettop.

    image

    In 2007, the Serpent will delight us with two more buildings.
    The first one is LowSphere.

    image

    The case is made up of 5 pentagons and 5 hexagons, as well as a soccer ball.

    image

    And when the light is on, the case does not stop pleasing to the eye.

    image

    And the second project is SLI-CUBE.

    image

    The case was made for the SLI-Fast and the Furious contest.

    image

    Made of acrylic and pvc.

    image

    And another case - the Nebuchadnezzar from Tirex.

    image

    Work on it began back in 2006, and now a year later we saw the result.

    image

    Modder tarator also worked on creating a slim body called Razor Light.

    image

    Case height 41cm, depth 24cm, thickness 6.5cm.

    image

    In addition to small buildings, huge monsters began to appear:

    image

    the body received no name.

    image

    Not only metal attracted Russian modders. Zwick Ivan made a wooden box.

    image

    Inside the most precious lies - the motherboard, the video card ... The

    image

    window cut through the top gives the “box” a certain charm.

    image

    In 2008, of course, it is worth noting the Dark Side case from Strannik.

    image

    Despite the simplicity of the design - the two combined tubes look very stylish.

    image

    Carbon stickers and orange backlighting give an association with UFOs.

    image

    The pipes look like turbines.

    image

    In addition to futuristic buildings, you can also find beautiful buildings of an older theme.

    image

    Case name - Double Pentode. The case is made by Timoshkin Alexander aka TANk.

    image

    But once computers consisted of a huge number of such "bulbs".

    image

    Modder tarator made the second version of Razor Light

    image

    This time, the case dimensions were 95x190x350 mm.

    image

    Another case with the inscription SLI made modder DIMA.

    image

    Case Name: nVidia Mechano SLI project.

    image

    With two gears, the modder tried to depict the work of two video cards in a bunch.

    image

    And finally, from the beginning of the decade, we gradually came to its end. The Sharp Edges case from Mr_Pet modder is in a hurry to please your eye.

    image

    The soft white glow in the black case makes a lasting impression in the dark.

    image

    The project has been done since 2007.

    image

    Modder IIIaMaH, using acrylic, made a very beautiful custom.

    image

    The project, unfortunately, was left without a name.

    image

    The most interesting work “The Fabric Case” was done by Eugene (gameover).

    image

    The case looks very unusual.

    image

    In terms of dimensions, the case, although small, can accommodate an ATX motherboard.

    image

    Not always, in order to impress, it is required to make the body from scratch. A good example of this is the modding of the Tony InWin S500 chassis.

    image

    Painting, windows and good lighting - what else is needed for happiness?

    image

    Pipes from the water cooling system and iron, in which wires from the power supply unit are wrapped, leave a feeling of futurism.

    image

    On this beautiful building and I want to finish. Modding in Russia is developing at a good pace. We look forward to even more masterpieces from the current decade =).

    UPD: Thanks for the karma, transferred the iron to the blog.
