Occupation: Systems Administrator
What do you think a case modder is?
someone who modifies a computer case with the intention of optimizing the environment that computer parts operate under. There is also the aesthetics issue for someone like me who wants to set my systems apart from what is commercially available.
Why do you case mod?
I mod my cases to improve cooling properties for my systems, as well as a form of self-expression that is reflected in the uniqueness of their end design.
What do you get out of the case modding experience?
a feeling of satisfaction and individuality, as well as pride when other people comment on my work.
How do you think people look at your work?
At first, people were in awe of the transformations (the Unreal case was among the first few to be displayed on the internet), then it became sort of a stepping stone for their own mods as ideas were shared.
How do you feel when people judge your work:
So far, responses and critiques have been favorable towards the mods that I have done, so no problem there.
when people comment on how things should look, or how this and that should have been done this or that way... beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and art shall always remain subjective.
Add any other random comments, concerns, rants, etc here.
I'm just glad to be among the fore-runners of this whole casemodding thing, and am not pressured to impress anyone with my casemods.
