Look what I dugg up


PC case mods aren't exactly the newest idea in town, but most of the time, these mods are just ordinary PC cases tacked on with flashing lights and other unnecessary items. Very rarely do you ever come across a PC case mod that features something built from scratch, but today I have stumbled upon (no pun intended to Digg's rival) this Digg PC case mod. According to the creator, this Digg case was built with convenience and price in mind, where all hardware within are easily removed save for the power supply.

Made from mainly 1/2" MDF (medium density fiberboard) with a few acrylic windows, this case is way cheaper than aluminum and acrylic, although dust issues crop up whenever you want to cut it. Even putting some screws into place cause problems like bulging or small fractures, so some knowledge of D.I.Y. is greatly appreciated. The final product is a definite stunner and bound to drive any geek wild. If only these were made for the commercial market - I'd so get one.

    Hi Gina…This is for all the do-it-yourselfers, in regards to the Digg PC case mod being made of MDF…
    First of all, it does create a very fine dust when cut…much finer than wood, so, you shouldn’t attempt to cut it with any of the hardware in place. The dust is so fine, it can pass through a very small crack. Make sure it’s completely clean before reinstalling the hardware.
    When using screws in MDF, always predrill with a drill bit slightly smaller than the screw. Better to start with one too small & work your way up. You can always make the hole bigger…it’s hard to make it smaller. Hand tighten, so you can have a feel of what’s happening. If the hole is too small, you can tell immediately. You should only feel a moderate amount of resistance. Don’t overtighten! Just snug it up…it’s very easy to strip the hole out. Hope this was helpful…
