Performance Upgrade - Part VII - New Volcano 7+ HSF - 04/29/02
If dorks can waste money on their cars doing "performance upgrades" to eek a whole horse-power out of their car that they'll never really notice the difference from, then geeks can do the same thing with their PC...as noted in this cosmetic and overclocking based upgrade to babydor's box.

More Case Modding! - Part VI - Case Cleanup and Cooling - 04/29/02
Well, it's been too long.  Finally got around to abusing the hardware in my box again.  A shiny silver theme will net the additions of some rounded cables, Crystal Orb and RAM cooling.  Check it out.  Make suggestions. Buy me new hardware....

Upgrade Time! - Part V - P4 Upgrade - 04/29/02
There's nothing like spending money on hardware you can't rationally justify buying.
Hence are next installment of boring things Dor's doing to his computer.
Enter the P4-1.8aGhz CPU and a Asus P4S333 motherboard.

Welcome to Babydor's ModSquad 10/22/01
Contained here-in you'll find Dor's ongoing project.  Based on a recently discovered fondness for the Dremel and encouraged by the case gallery found at Virtual Hideout, I've developed an odd urge to cut holes in and solder things to my personal computer.  It's rather amusing for me, will probably be very boring for you, but I've got this here web page, so I have to put *something* on it.  So, peruse, enjoy and wait patiently for me to inadvertently slice off a finger.

Dor's Case Mod Project Continues - Part IV - Linksys Printer server LED Mod 10/12/01
So I was quite bored one day, had an extra ultra bright 5mm LED...started looking around my desk and noticed this poor little print server with a sad looking, dim little green LED.  Thus began the 4th chapter in my PC modding project.

More Case Modding - Part III - Case Fan Grill Mod  10/04/01
I kept seeing all these laser cut fan grills for sale on just about ever case mod site there is.  Figured I'd join the crowd and slap an atomic 80mm on the back of my Lian-Li PC68.

My Most Stressful Mod So Far - Part II - Case Window Mod  09/29/01
"Why in God's name would you take power tools to the brand new, shiny $200 aluminum Lian-Li PC68USB case you just got  Dor?"
To put a home made clear lexan window in the side of it of course.  Talk about a rather nerve racking project.  What if I   slip?  What if I cut the lexan the wrong size?  What if that dremel bit breaks off and takes out my eye....or the kitten's eye?  What if I had 3 eyes?  I have clairvoyant paranoia...I have pre-cognitive dissidence...
Err...just go look at the pictures.

Let the Modding Begin - Part I - Case LED Mod  09/27/01
 
If you're going to start hacking apart an expensive computer case, it's best to start simple.  So we start out with a simple alteration to my case's LEDs by replacing both the green and yellow LEDs with two 2600 MCD Blue LEDs from our local Radio Shack.  Nothing like getting your feet wet when it comes to modding.
