15 crazy PC case mods

Bored with your old beige box? These enterprising modders have you covered. Gorgeous, unwieldy, and rarely pragmatic, here are 15 cases that blur the line between workhorse and work of art.

razer121's Plasma Ball PC



Case mods don't always need to be pragmatic--or attractive--to be noteworthy. While his mod isn't likely to win beauty pageants, razer121 delivers one of the more unusual chassis designs we've come across.

The embedded plasma ball lends a mad scientist vibe to the colorful case. And the included working cigarette lighter helps to keeps things classy. Though the picture quality isn't great, the custom tubing and the lighting effects reveal a passion for a system that some onlookers would feel a bit squeamish about displaying on their own desks.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
