Hello,

My coworker @FloofyFox and I have decided to start a friendly case mod competition.
Feel free to share pics of your beigemods smile.gif (and don't forget to share them with the official beigemodders club thread)
[Official] OCN Beigemodders Club - From Trash to Treasure

Rules:
  • The case must be old & beige
  • You can mod it however you like
  • No limitations on parts (period-accurate is preferred)
  • Painting is allowed
  • 90's mods (el wire, cold cathodes, acrylic, etc) are preferred
  • No ghetto mods. Old parts are awesome but it shouldn't look like garbage. Take pride in your work!
  • Performance is not a factor in this competition.
  • Low budget project. (Hopefully less than $100 total) Go for the best bang for the buck. We both have expensive gaming hardware laying around that we could throw in there but our goal is to achieve nostalgia euphoria tongue.gif
  • Computer must be running Windows with stability

POSTING GUIDELINES

At the end, we'll do a poll for the best looking mod (between myself and @FloofyFox)
I'll also do a separate poll for anyone to enter. PM me with a link to your build log if interested (you can submit old builds but it would be cool to start at the same time and see what we can come up with). The above rules still apply.

Competitors (so far):
Cheers,

Trevor

“That… is why you fail.”
“It’s worse.”

Sweet compatition. My Dark Side case mod is technically a BeigeMod. It doesn't really have any 90's styling though. It'll be neat to see what y'all come up with though.

We got matching cases to start it off! Mine's the one that has a red hat linux sticker on it. It's clear that I'll have an unfair advantage wink.gifCase pictures (Click to show)
Also, 90's modding jackpot! EL wire, cold cathodes, uv fan grills... 90's parts (Click to show)
Hopefully @FloofyFox will post his pictures of the loot tongue.gif
Stay tuned smile.gif
