One of the most interesting side-attractions at Gamescom this year was the 9th Annual Case Modding Championships with its Live Modding challenge.

Over the 5 days of the expo, pairs of expert case modders - who had been invited by organisers DCMM - were given 24 hours to come up with the most unique, most eye-catching and most down right awesome PC cases they could muster in the time frame.

Pocket-lint's favourite effort was the Navigator - a Philip Pullman style wooden box hosting a Mysn XMG80C notebook:
