Default This Case Is Insane!

Some contestant in the Newegg case mod contest, that is awesome!

Wonder how much that cost, and how long it took...

I would seriously consider getting one of those cases, I could spend $299 on a case like that if it had that much room!

Yea that sites been around a while, also you can buy those UFO cases prebuilt w/ the stuff already in. Kudos to him if he put it together himself though. But prebuilt or not i think he would win so im not entering in that contest anymore.

Wow, are you guys kidding me? He's got nice hardware, but the case doesn't seem that impressive to me. It is very nice, but I don't think it should win a big contest...

Maximum PC magazine has a "Rig of the Month" in every issue on the very last page. I have seen some VERY creative and impressive cases featured there. They make that guy look like a n00b. This month's isn't too impressive, but then again it is a home built motorcycle/computer, lol .

Well on the contrary, the newegg case judges dont put home modding and that stuff into consideration. Like Nuibis said, they are idiots that like eye candy. I suppose they dont take creativity into consideration.
