Forget boring beige: Mod your PC into a statement of your individuality, with David Groth’s PC Chop Shop. All you need to know is here -- explained patiently and carefully for those of us who’ve never used a Dremel Multipro, never even voided a warranty.
Want to light your case? Great, do it: Then mod your keyboard LEDs to match. Build an LCD screen directly into your PC’s case. Paint your beast, then overclock it. Quiet down those noisy fans and drives. We especially like Groth’s trademark mod: using an automobile key switch to turn your computer on -- just like starting a car. Not enough? Check out Groth’s 16-page full-color mods gallery. Inspired? Get Groth’s book, grab your tools, and get started. Bill Camarda
