well

if by modding you mean adding thingsthat are for sale already, then no.


if you mean by carving holes in the case with a dremmel to add fans, or something unusual, then yes.

also

i was wondering how many of you like to start your mod job with an old case, like the laydown flatcases, from the 80286 and 80386 days.

i think there is something about the nostalgic feel you get sitting in front of something so incredibly old, and still doing the newest things with it.

if anyone wants to laugh, then you will really get a kick out of what i have just built. and ps, pictures are coming as soon as i get a 9volt battery for my camera.

dremmel?

i absolutely love my dremmel, i just wish i had more than 20 bits.

as far as what i use it for, i dunno, cutting shaping grinding sanding carving drilling polishing and what else?

KILLING STUFF THAT MAKES ME MAD!!!!

haha j/k

i use it for anything i can.

i only have the 30,000 rpm model :(

Great for cutting fan holes.

but as far as old cases, i have a nice old one that seems to be made for my machine, and it is running in it now, but i still need to take it back out so i can carve the fan holes into the cover, and paint it. then come the pics.
