In part one of Mod Gods, we looked at six of our favourite modding projects ever, dating all the way back to the turn of the millennium. We've had dozens of recommendations from you all, and combined with our own forum sifting, we've got got even more amazing projects for you this time too, and plenty more for future editions of Mod Gods. If you’ve got some favourites that we haven’t included yet, be sure to tell us in the comments or drop us a line at email@example.com.
Orac³ by Peter Dickison Bit-tech five-part article seriesHere
For many people who have followed modding for the last decade, one mod captures the essence of customisation, outlandishness and the simple 'I did it because I could' attitude. Orac³ is one of the first projects to attract people from far and wide to bit-tech and set the scene for modding to go further than just improving cooling or adding lights.
The use of chrome shower-tail tubing to cover cables really makes the project what it is. We'd seen plenty of acrylic cases that used water cooling before Orac³, but the project makes the most of the fact the case is translucent. The mix of colours also hides the fact the innards are pretty crowded - we wouldn't have it any other way.
Acrylic towers have become less popular, but Orac³ was way ahead of its time both in terms of design and its ability to encompass every feature of the case into one simple theme. Be sure to check out our five-part feature on the project including plenty more eye candy.
