Human ingenuity never fails to surprise.

A quick walk through the exhibit halls of this year’s Computex would have you expecting high-tech gadgets-and-gizmos-a-plenty, but what I didn’t expect was the sheer artistry in the presentation.

I’m talking specifically about the number of PC case mods that surprised and delighted those in attendance at Asia’s biggest tech expo.

PC case modding, as I have learned, is an art form in itself. The creation of something aesthetically pleasing or amazing (or sometimes even downright ridiculous) comes with the burden of making sure the computer still works after all the outrageous updates.

Yes, these masterpieces are working, functioning computers. From the flashy to the downright surprising, here are my favorite PC case mods.

Warcar by Fuxk

This car runs on the road and runs on Windows!

Wheel of Star by Modder Crow

Round and round she goes! This PC case mod literally turns and turns heads.

Mystic Light Sync by Black Mod (Baluc & Soccer)

This amazing case is not only a PC, it’s a fully functional arcade game, too!

Ipason I7 7799K by Ipason 

One bad-looking (and I mean that in a good way) PC. This will definitely light up gaming enthusiasts!

Conquer by Cougar

Who knew copper-orange could look so hardcore?

Aside from being fantastic works of art, this high-tech hobby is a great example of how the balance between the fun and the functional can result in amazing things.
