You’ve seen some of the strangest case mods, now check out five masterpieces that our editors have come across in recent time.
4. Wolfenstein Radio PC
At first glance, we thought this was a prop from an upcoming Wolfenstein movie, but in reality it’s just a masterfully modded PC. Designed to resemble a “Wolfenstein Radiostation”, it features an AMD Athlon 2200+ processor, ASUS VIA KT400 motherboard, ATI Radeon 9600 graphics card, 60GB hard drive, and a DVD R/W drive. It comes complete with a custom paint job, receiver, antenna, gauges/meters, and authentic-looking decals. [Source]
This incredible “Sangaku” case mod took Nick Falzone over 300 hours to complete, over the course of 9 months.
He decided to build a custom case that represented this understated Japanese coolness using his skills and experience with wood. It’s basic dimensions would clearly define it as a PC – the goal wasn’t to try to create something really crazy like the guys at WCG 2005 with Alien heads and fish tanks etc. Something aesthetically pleasing that, first and foremost, looked like some badass Japanese woodwork, but was also a PC
2. Doom 3
Now this definitely looks like something out of a “Doom” movie. Technical specs haven’t been released, but we do know that it’s DangerDen watercooled and features “top of-the-line hardware components”. [Source]
Peter from Bit-Tech decided to create a PC case based on the popular TV show “24” — resembling a weapon of mass destruction aka atomic bomb. Features include a large dot matrix LED display, water cooling, custom built double radiator, and a concealed DVD drive.
…the aim of this project was to build a completely custom-built computer case, out of stainless steel, that would look like the sort of atomic bomb that one sees in spy movies or on TV shows like 24. I tried not to base the design on any real or fictional bomb, but simply out of my imagination.
