Datamancer Archbishop PC case mod

Posted in Cases by Conner Flynn on August 11th, 2008

Datamancer Archbishop PC case modThe Datamancer Archbishop PC case mod is different from most case mods that we’ve seen. It has an entirely overwhelming religious theme. I t’s probably pretty heavy as well since it was made out of stained glass. If you or your Neighbor Ned Flanders should want to buy this Gothic and holy case mod, you can check out the Steampunk art show at the Hamptons Antique Galleries in Bridgehampton, NY between August 16th until August 24th, 2008.

Interestingly, this project was nearly destroyed by a California earthquake, proving that God and the devil really do fight and that anyone building a religious case mod ends up in the middle. I’m guessing it sends you straight to hell if it catches you looking at porn.

The Lego Brick PC

Posted in Cases by Conner Flynn on August 10th, 2008

The Lego Brick PCLegos aren’t just for play you know. They can also be used to construct and even fix important real life things that you can use. Like this Lego PC case for example. Looking like some shiny black monolith, it’s made entirely out of black Lego bricks. Look how nice and shiny that is. He didn’t just randomly put Lego bricks together either. He used MLCAD to specifically design the PC before building.

The PC is a Mini-ITX form factor that allows for a low power PC inside, which runs a 1.5GHz VIA C7 processor and has a 250GB Seagate hard drive. It’s even got dual gigabite ports on the JetWay motherboard. Very nice. Check out the below video to see how he did it. Yet another real life situation solved by Legos. Have you played with Legos today?

GMC Noblesses K-2 Ebony ATX case

The case also displays your computer’s health by giving you info on fan speed, CPU temp, system temp, etc. But the main thing is that it sports those features and at the same time doesn’t look horrible. It will give you all of the info you could possibly want right there.

Matrix Regenerator PC case mod

Matrix Regenerator PC case mod
I know for a fact that several nerds just crapped themselves looking at the picture above. This monstrosity is a PC Case Mod designed around the Matrix Regenerator. Some specs: Pentium 4 3.2, MSI 875P Neo Mainboard, a Solarism 17″ LCD Monitor LM1730, 1 GB Corsair CMX512 3200LL, Crucial Radeon 9800 Pro 256, and more.

It’s really a highly detailed work of art. From the creator “The Matrix: Regenerator project is the second in a series of two case mods based on The Matrix movies. The first project, The Matrix: Rebirth 8.0 was a recreation of the scene where machines are breeding humans for their electric power. Regenerator will show the second stage in that breeding process, where adult humans are plugged in to their power plants, dreaming their dream within the Matrix and providing power for the machines.”

Some specs include: EVGA e-7150 / 630i Motherboard, Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 CPU, EVGA GeForce 9600 GT Graphics Card, 4GB Crucial Tracer PC2-6400 DDR2 Memory, Silverstone Strider 650W Modular PSU, Silverstone NT06 Lite CPU cooler w/ 120mm Fan, and 160GB Seagate Momentus Notebook Hard Drive.

Anime girl PC casemod is the work of nerd desperation
What’s a nerd to do when one day you wake up and realize that there’s no woman in your life and there likely never will be? You create your own woman, that’s what! One who will carry your PC on her back like Luke carrying Yoda.

If that’s not creepy enough, make sure you take plenty of pictures of the project, and I mean planty, detailing every stage of it’s construction and adding to the overall flavor of desperation and geek excitement. That’s what Katsuya Matsumura did. His gal is party in the front and PC in the back. Say what you will about a perv and his PC, you don’t have one.

Holy Hieroglyphics: Stunning Egyptian case mod
Whether built by King Tut himself or the work of an ancient alien civilization, this is surely proof of alien intervention. The detail is just too amazing. There’s no way they could have done it. And the fact that an ancient PC case has been unearthed…

This work of art was built from nothing by Chris Kramer a.k.a “Jadragon”, and is called the EgyptMod PC. There’s some amazing detail, like hieroglyphics, fake jewels and an awesome aged look. Check out the Eye of Ra made of brass and inlaid with polished malachite and verisite. The project took over 200 hours of carving and he never once wavered and cried out for his mummy. It’s a truly inspiring creation.
