Introduction Case Modding! We've all heard of it, we all want to do it, and today OCA is going to cover a simple and fun article on modding out your case using the following items.

I actually plan on making this a 2 or 3 part series with future installments of more mod items. However, for today's installment, I thought that 3 items was a good starting point. While certainly nothing that will take top honors at the case mod awards ceremony, it will spruce up your plain jane looking case and raise a few eyebrows at the next lan party. Lets take a look at a few pics of the case before any type of modding is done.
The Victims Personally, I really like the looks of the Chieftech/Antec cases. Still, this one is a bit on the plain side and certainly needs some good homebrew modding to make it respectable to the average overclocker/lan gamer. Below is a snap of the case with all the goodies we are going to be installing today.
The window kit comes with everything you need (except the dremel) to properly install in your PC side panel, to include the acrylic window itself, side molding, molding lock, a washer so you can trace with proper distance around the window and clear instructions on how to do it. Instructions you say? BAH! Trust me, read them, they are very helpful in this scenario.
The washer is a simple, yet ingenious item that lets you easily trace around the window to obtain the proper cut area you'll want when you breakout the dremel.
Now that we have the outline of the window drawn, we can take this sucker outside for some serious DREMEL action. Muahaha. It's one of the best parts really, and I highly recommend a beer or 2 which will help you steady your hand. But no more than 2! You dont' want to accidentally cut off any fingers in your drunken stupor.
