Yes, I am still gaming away and getting destroyed in some StarCraft II but at least we are having fun.  In between ass-whoopings I have been wandering around the BYOC looking for some interesting case mods.  Here are a few I found interesting.

These aren't really mods but I like the idea of bringing a BYOC stand that puts the case and computing components over the display in use, saving space on the table and moving the heat closer to the ceiling.

Here is another example of the design but with a brightly lit overclocked and water cooled SLI configuration.

Probably my favorite for the event has been this Lego case that took about 2 years to create according to the owner.  The crane on the left is fully workable and controllable via some software running on the system.  My favorite part though: the HDD LED is routed to look like a Lego guy's welding light on the front!!

This Gigabyte branded case mod uses the company's new G1 Killer branded motherboards and focuses heavily on the green motif.  The skull shape reservoir really completes the ensemble.

Finally, here is a random shot of some people lining up to play a game of "LAN Pong" involving tossing tennis balls into a bucket.  The prizes were impressive though: a pair of NVIDIA Tegra 2 powered tablets.

I only live 30 minutes away from the usual venue and yet I still haven't attended a single PDXLAN.

I suck.
