    I am a first time poster, for a few weeks lurker. Now on to my joke mod :D

    Today I was sitting around my house trying to think of something to do when it hit me. I will make a computer case !! :rock:

    I then began the planning design and finding materials around my house, since i didnt have much i couldnt go for that fancy plywood i used cardboard :hip:

    I then went a measuring with my measuring stick and cut the pieces out. Since i didnt have any screws or fancy clear tape i used my favorite roll of ducktape.

    In the end this is what it came out to be. I had to tear a power button off another case because my card board one woud not work for some reason :mad2: . Tell me what you all think, tomorrow i am going to add a window :clap:

    Wow, awesome mod. The duct tape accents are where it's at.

    I can't wait to see the window mod. What dremel wheel are you using?

    I got my window added and then decided to take some pictures of how i got my cdrom, motherboard, and power supply in there. I tried some screws but they dont hold to well in cardboard, so out came the ductape!!!

    [​IMG]

    after all that i went ahead and decided it was time to put the cdrom in there, again with ducttape!!! because when i went to add a hole in the front of the case for it to fit it just would not go :-/. Did i tell you all the many uses for ducttape?

    [​IMG]

    After that was done i knew i needed some ventilation in the case. I decided to add a blow hole at the top, i didnt have to use ducttape this time because the cardboard secured it pretty good.

    [​IMG]

    Any ideas on what i can use next? I am running out of them.

    I don't like the color. Try painting it? Brown is the new beige.

    gotta agree with the water cooling, tho would go for the lesser used "sprinkler" mod would be awesome you could go for the soggy cardboard case then...
