Case modification was a relatively small when it first started. Only a few computer enthusiasts were able to modify their case to do all what they wanted to do. Parts were hard to get and were often specially made and expensive. What started with discussions on PC Club forum in 2002, became a full case modification contest. The first event was relatively small but it was well received.

PC Club hosted four years of case modification contests. The most people participated in Case Madness 3 contest where over 75 different cases from around the nation entered. The last Case Modification Contest was in 2005.
