    An Anthropological Look Into The Case Modders Domain
    Author: Mike Kitchenman
    Date Posted: December 6th, 2001

    This is likely how it all started for modding. Someone found something they disliked about their case, and did the work themselves to change it. I have heard many people who had problems with the older systems that they had to fix. They had to either add a fan to keep it cool, or change something about a case to make their hardware fit, or any number of possibilities. Then about 2 years ago or so, some people who were really tired of the annoying beige boxes that PCs shipped in decided to change them drastically. This was first evident when "The Unreal Case" came onto the scene, and once it hit, the floodgates opened.

    Done by Ultragooey, A.K.A. John Young III Systems Administrator in real life, it was the first major project to ever really be seen publicized. It hit the net on Feb 15 2000, and when it did, it hit with a Tidal wave of force. Here are a few pictures of "The Unreal Case" in action:

    That's the UT case in its splendor, one of the first, and still one of the best-done case mods ever. Many refer to Ultragooey as the Father (occasionally grandfather) of case modding. Since this time, much has come and changed the world of modding, but its all still there.
