Filed under
Hardware

he term "modding" may not even be a real word, but it is appropriate for loosely describing the broad field of modifying a computer system to give it a personalized style. This tip will proceed by looking at some of the basic items, tools, and accessories used in modding.

For those who take pride in doing the job themselves, there are certain tools that should be included in the typical modder's toolbox.

Custom cases are a lot like hot rods, except for computer geeks. Some may have the super-charged (overclocked) engine and some serious performance hardware, but what will first grab someone's attention is a sharp appearance.
