About Casemodding - turning regular hardware into unique pieces
Grey hardware is nowhere to be found on the area of DCMM! The modders present their skills in seven categories: CaseMods (Case Modification - modified computer cases from industrial mass production), CaseCons (Case Construction - self-designed and built cases), CE-Mods (Consumer Electronics – other modified cases, except computers), Computer aided Modding (CAM - machine-made cases, by 3D printer or laser cut), LAN (LAN Challenge of four days), Best Newcomer, and the 24h Livemodding Challenge. In the last category, the participants work on a uniformly specified computer case every day - right in front of the eyes of the visitors.
20 years of casemodding history
Since the first championship in 2002, the DCMM has established itself as a worldwide event in the casmodding scene. Started with only one category, the event has grown immensely and internationalized in the past 20 years. This development is to be celebrated on the occasion of the 20th anniversary - the participating modders can expect a varied weekend in the center of the international casemodding scene. The strict separation of organization and jury has remained the same over the two decades. Once the jury members have been appointed, they decide on the evaluation of the cases without any other influence, for example by sponsors. The accommodation during the event will be provided to the participants and for the journey they will receive a travel allowance based on the number of kilometers traveled to the event location.
