Mountain Mods News Events.
12.21.15: Mountain Mods is pleased to announce another great DIY item to our list of great items.
Mountain Mods ITX Modular I/O Panels are available for purchase NOW. We had many requests for something even smaller than our mATX I/O panels and we have followed through with the same great quality I/O panels that you are used to seeing from Mountain Mods.
03.28.15: Mountain Mods 140mm HDD Brackets Released!
Mountain Mods 120mm HDD brackets have been used in thousands of builds since their inception. Now those using primarily 140mm fan system builds have an option. The Mountain Mods 140mm HDD bracket! Mount up to 4 x 3.5 inch hard drives per bracket set.
04.12.14: Mountain Mods Gold Digger and 20 PCI I/O brackets released!
This is not your typical Gold Digger! Rather than continually drain your pocketbook, this Gold Digger helps put the coin (crypto-coins to be exact) into your wallet(s)!
Mountain Mods Gold Digger cases are manufactured specifically for GPU mining of crypto-currencies, GPU Folding, and any need for multiple GPU’s operating at near 100% Load nearly 100% of the time.
Mountain Mods Gold Digger series cases utilize the base US patented U2-UFO and Ascension designs and incorporate a whopping 20 PCI I/O bracket. The 20 PCI I/O bracket attaches to the Gold Digger case back panel. The bracket utilizes Mountain Mods patent pending “Air Assist” feature. The I/O “Air Assist” is achieved by insetting I/O Mounting holes away from the case with enough space to mount 3x120mm fans behind the bracket and internal the case back panel. The use of 120mm fans greatly increases airflow in the GPU as well as between GPU’s. The result is a drastically cooler running GPU with overall lower GPU fan speeds. The reduction of thermal load on the GPU as well as the reduction of the GPU fan speed operation increases the longevity and performance stability of the GPU. Riser cables are used to extend the GPU’s from the Motherboard below. Operating the GPU’s several inches off the motherboard results in little to no heat transference from the GPU to the motherboard itself. This also greatly reduces thermal loads on the GPU’s as well as the motherboard and components. Mountain Mods Gold Digger cases also incorporate a separate I/O panel that attaches to the motherboard allowing for the use of other PCI – I/O devices, including full size GPU’s on the mainboard if desired.
The 20 PCI I/O Bracket is also sold separately for the DIY person looking to mount multiple GPU’s to existing or homemade platforms!
The U2-UFO and Ascension Gold Digger Back Panels can be purchased separately as well - just select GOLD DIGGER from back panel type optoin.

09.19.13: Mountain Mods 2 PCI-IO brackets released!
Mountain Mods 2 x PCI brackets allow for an inexpensive and easy way to integrate more PCI/IO devices into your existing chassis or to integrate into your own DIY homegrown chassis. These brackets are fabricated from high quality 1.65mm thick Aluminum sheet metal and formed with precision tools. Top notch 6-32 Aluminum threaded inserts are hydraulically pressed into the mounting flange of each side bracket for panel attachment. Just cut out a hole in your chassis to the specification and the 6 screw mounting clearance holes. Assemble your devices between the brackets, align the assembly with your cutouts and use 4 x 6-32 threaded screws to firmly mount to the panel. These are a great way to install PCIE video cards on Riser boards.
06.01.13: Mountain Mods - Decadent Decade!
10 years ago today, Mountain Mods unveiled itself to the world.
At that time Mountain Mods brought forth the first evolution of the award winning chassis, known as the U2-UFO. Little was it known that the U2-UFO would revolutionize the world of computer cases, but that is indeed what transpired. The U2-UFO was big, bold, and Borglike. From its first revelation to its current form, the U2-UFO and all of its evolutions have turned the heads of many astonished onlookers.
10 Years ago there was nothing remotely like it in the commercial environment. Like the U2-UFO, Mountain Mods itself was forging a new market, the market of Custom Computer Case manufacturing direct to the customer. From the single configuration of the first run of U2-UFO units sprouted minor adaptations. The old original U-Wrap exterior shell with original top option gave birth to the Big Window and Solid top models. Then the single U-Wrap dropped in favor of three individual panels that you see today. Then Mountain Mods did another first to market with the explosion of the main chassis into its Trade Dress “Hyper Modular” design of today. The “Hyper Modular” design collapsed the box into completely separate pieces that could be flat packed and shipped for much less around the globe. The separate piece design also allowed for an easy way to change out a part for an entirely different configuration/case. Or you could rotate a panel 90 or 180 degrees for an entirely different setup. With a vertically oriented motherboard configuration you could just rotate the back panel, put in a horizontal brace, and presto, your computer case has transformed into a new configuration. This evolution accompanied with the introduction of a variety of different panels took the single U2-UFO and gave it over a mind-boggling 36,000 configurations! 10 years later and Mountain Mods has developed several lines of “Hyper Modular” cases as well as the small H2gO aluminum case and several Acrylic cases such as the Bob Slay and a plethora of other computer case parts and accessories. 10 Years is a huge accomplishment and we’d like to extend our thanks. Thank you to all Mountain Mods employees throughout the years. Thank you to all of our business and operational partners. Most of all THANK YOU, our customers who have helped fund the evolution with your purchases and your feedback. Celebrate with us, and own a piece of computer case history. Mountain Mods is extending a 10% off base price on all CYO computer cases and several price slashing promotions on other parts for the entire month of June! THANK YOU! (The CYO – flash picker will not indicate this price break, but can be viewed in the shopping cart and during checkout).
04.24.13: Mountain Mods 2x5.25 brackets released!
Mountain Mods 2 x 5.25 Optical Drive brackets allow for an inexpensive and easy way to integrate more 5.25 devices into your existing chassis or to integrate into your own DIY homegrown chassis. These brackets are fabricated from high quality 1.65mm thick Aluminum sheet metal and formed with precision tools. Top notch 6-32 Aluminum threaded inserts are hydraulically pressed into the mounting flange of each side bracket for panel attachment. Just cut out a hole in your chassis to the specification and the 4 screw mounting clearance holes. Assemble your devices between the brackets, align the assembly with your cutouts and use 4 x 6-32 threaded screws to firmly mount to the panel. Have you always had a desire for top, side, or back mounted 5.25 devices? Well, now you can have them!

05.20.10: EVGA SR-2 fits like a glove on Mountain Mods HPTX - Modular Motherboard tray.
12.08.09: Pickin and Grinnin - Since our conception Mountain Mods has drastically changed the field of computer housings with a completely Unique and Exclusive chassis – the Mountain Mods U2-UFO. From that point of origin like the U2-UFO itself we have evolved. The evolution spawned our most recent designs utilizing the patent pending “Hyper Modular” design. The “Hyper Modular” design is once again a FIRST and completely EXCLUSIVE feature of Mountain Mod casings. It allows for several thousands of possible configurations on several case designs. The “Hyper Modular” design also allows the user to easily change his/her existing configuration and as many users are discovering with the recent addition of the 10 PCI (XL-ATX) motherboard tray and back panels; it allows for a quick, easy, and an inexpensive way to always upgrade to the latest and greatest in computer hardware without having to purchase an entirely new chassis. AND NOW with the advent the CYO Flash-Picker Interface we are revolutionizing yet another aspect of the PC computer case – the way in which you order it. Mountain Mods CYO Flash-Picker Interface is an awesome new way to order a computer case. The Flash allows you to select your individual panels and see your case in assembled form prior to buying it. Other things integrated into the picker – Turn off layers to view only certain parts of the case or for better internal viewing; select your acrylic colors on the fly and see what they might look like; get a running total based upon selections currently selected; print the image to a printer; and of course place an order – pushing the data to your shopping cart.
12.04.09: Discover the Power of 10! Discover the power of 10! - Mountain Mods Ascension was listed as one of few cases in the world to house the new EVGA X58 Classified 4-Way SLI. This Motherboard requires a 10 PCI Slot Motherboard Tray. While only one of our cases was listed two were actually capable of housing this beast. The Extended Ascension was also capable. Now we have added 4 more cases to the 10 PCI capable list. Mountain Mods Pinnacle 18, Pinnacle 24, U2-UFO, and Extended U2-UFOs are now capable of housing 10 PCI motherboards with the 10 PCI backpanel and 10 PCI modular motherboard tray. These panels are available with new case purchases as well as individual upgrades to your already existing cases. Take note of the beauty of Mountain Mods "hyper modular" design allowing you upgradability at a fraction of the cost. And yes, that is a horizontal 10 PCI back panel that has been added to our list of available Ascension/Extended Ascension back panels. 10 PCI Modular Motherboards are currently sold out - more will be in 12.14.09
10.29.09: Mountain Mods releases two NEW acrylic cases. - Say hello to the Mountain Mods - Bob Slay V2 and Transparency.

11.20.07: HYPER MODULARITY ARRIVES! - Twelve previous evolutions have occurred to the Mountain Mods U2-UFO. Number 13 takes the already modular cube computer case into an overdrive of options. The new patent pending functions have been named “Hyper Modular”. For nearly 3 years the right, left, and top panels have been modular, allowing for swapping or rotations of the panels to give the user a further customized cube. The “Hyper Modular” evolution now includes these features to the front and back plane of the case. You can rotate your front panel 180 degrees. The back panel can rotate 90,180, or 270 degrees for different configurations. You can also mix and match your desired front panel with the desired back panel. Or purchase different front and/or back panels in the future to change your cube configuration without needing to purchase an entire case. The “Hyper Modular” design is truly a revolution in computer case design. All U2-UFO designs are shipping modular now. CLICK THE PIC for assembly instructions.
08.01.07: MOUNTAIN MODS H2gO UNVEILED - "The H2gO was designed for the enthusiast on the go. Measuring up to 17 inches deep, 13.5 inches tall and 12.75 inches wide, makes this case highly portable without sacrificing in the cooling or technology departments. The case is like all Mountain Mod cases broken into 2 separate chambers. The Top chamber houses a full ATX (or smaller mATX) motherboard and no other heated components. This allows for an awesome view through the top and side window of the case. The 2 x 120mm intake fans blow in symmetry with the back 2 x120mm fans for full AIR chamber effect. If air just is not enough for you then purchase a Thermochill PA 120.2 and attach it internally on the front of the unit (other manufacturer radiators can work as well by attaching one fan to chassis only and the other to radiator then chassis). If one Thermochill PA 120.2 is not enough purchase yet another and attach it to the back of the unit, externally and route your tubes through the lasered out holes in the chassis for up to 7/8 inch OD tubing. Still if that is not enough 2 more 120mm blow holes exist on the bottom chamber and are quite capable of holding a Thermochill PA 120.1 or any other single radiator.."
01.13.07: MOUNTAIN MODS TWICE7 MAKES ITS SECOND APPEARANCE AT CES. - Last year a Twice7 sat in Corsairs booth showing off some goods. This year a KILLER Twice7 build sat in BIGFOOT NETWORKS booth representing the KILLER NIC. More photos of this build and more can be seen in the Mountain Mod User Gallery
08.23.06: MOUNTAIN MODS RELEASES THE HORIZON! - The Horizon series of the U2-UFO offers the same great features at a new angle. Like the Opti-1203 series the front panel integrates 2 x 5.25 removable drive bays and 3 x 120mm horizontally positioned intake fans that align with Thermochill radiators. On the back panel we rotate things 90 degrees giving you a fully open view of the motherboard at the top. This horizontal position is great option for some of the larger Heat Sink Fans out today or for a different view of watercooling components. All drives are on the lower chamber of the case. As with all U2-UFO cases you get 2 Power Supply ports to meet your power needs.
08.13.06: MOUNTAIN MODS U2-UFO IN SKY WHITE POWDER COAT! - Red and grey and black and white and you decide which is right and which is the solution! The ever evolving U2-UFO is now available in white with a multitude of panel options.

10.25.05: The Evolution Continues.
The U2-UFO has undergone many changes over time. One of the most drastic changes was the adaptation of separate panels for the sides and top as opposed to the old single U-shaped top. It is now time for the Twice7 to follow suit. All Twice7 cubes now employ the 3 panel design. More options for the Twice7 are also available. They are now available in Mirror Black, Sky White, or brushed aluminum. We now have solid panels, UV blue and green panels, as well as the original 3 window design available.
