To view this case mod, go here.



Specs:
Old classic 486, nothing more.

Good old 486, just updated appearance. I did it because it was one of the first PC on which I worked, played games, it's a memory. It's also the time when Casemooding arise when we gave stickers on the PC. My brother spray painted in black case with a large skull on the side. Just the first adjustment, which we did. Another reason is that you do not have thousands of dollars in the account to have a nice PC. Most casemooding is about a super buy equipment and put in a nice case, at least as I watch it here, of course, there are exceptions. Many of those modifications is just nicely folded expensive PC. For me, it casemoodnig about creating something new. Not just about money.

This is not the one I use before. This is 486DX, this is PC before this milenium, before CPU is marked with frequency. Real RETRO.
