My personal opinion on casemodding is not so much that is has died, more that it has slowed down. This could be that the older kinds of modders (me included) didn’t have all the luxurious items that are available today. We used to make our own LED-fans and CCFLs. We bought those things at specialty electronics stores; back in the day when the blue LEDs were brand new (and sold for 8 dollars). Blue was THE color back then. Although things might have slowed down in that way, the big modding forums still reign supreme and will laugh at my comments here ;) although I’m guilty I too am still on those forums lurking getting ever to hungry to mod on my own again.
Every now and then we get companies like AC Ryan that break the mold of how to trick out your PC. Their products give your case a little some extra other than a plain LED, and now you have another choice: Lamptron.
Lamptron was so nice to send me a pair of their second version of case handles.
