Part II has 9 complete mods with step by step instructions. Looks like there is also a website with the book that has color photos for all the projects and other stuff - [...]
This is the most complete book I have seen for learning casemodding skills, and highly recommended for anyone who has seen a cool mod on the web and wondered, "how'd they do that?"
He also gives you a good overview of the general techniques you need to be facile in. Like drilling holes in the computer casing, without trashing it. Or soldering. Or putting in extra fans for cooling. This latter ability is important if you are into overclocking your machine, with its concomitant extra heat dissipation needs.
The cutest mod may be that of turning your PC into a baby UFO. Sorry, it doesn't fly. But it looks really cool.
