The case mod is inspired by the design concept of Sabertooth Z97 Mark S. The case front represents a tiger’s mouth wide open; related to the model name ‘Sabertooth’. Jesse used a white theme for the whole case mod, leveraging the Thermal Armor’s arctic-camouflage pattern around the power supply to further reflect the Sabertooth Z97 Mark S as ASUS’ first motherboard with white PCB, Thermal Armor and Fortifer.
All of Jesse’s mods are hand-made using basic tools, rather than CNC or other advanced machinery. He enjoys working free-hand as he feels it represents his passion and commitment to the art of PC Modding. For Jesse, it is of great importance to inspire others who feel they cannot mod because they do not have access to specialized tools.
