A Liquid-cooled Wii in a Custom Aluminum Case

Housed in a custom built case fashioned out of CNC-milled aluminum, this isn’t the same Wii you’ve got stuffed inside your entertainment center. Two years in the making, Bit-tech forum member Angel OD (also known as Martin Nielsen) finally finished the wall-mounted, liquid-cooled "Wii UNlimited Edition" this past Saturday and posted an abundance of pictures for his fellow forum members to drool over.



The case-mod features side-panels etched with the traditional Wii logo (probably so people can tell what the heck it is because it doesn’t look anything like a Wii), two 22cm cooling reservoirs, a digital thermometer up top and exposed mechanics. 



Nielson didn’t mention the cost of this project and we’re kind of afraid to ask. Let’s just leave it at ‘more than the Wii itself,’ shall we?

Check out all the pictures of the finished product here and his original thread (more pictures of the process) here.

    I just came here to laugh at the pointlessness of this, but that's kind of sexy. wouldn't liquid cooling be put to better use in a PS3 or 360?

    while it is nice, i've never heard of anyone overclocking their wii, and they've never really been known to overheat either, it's probably more suited for the Xbox 360 or PS3.

    Though it is nice and i can appreciate it.

    Already been done(xbox and ps3)....this is the first custom Wii case I have seen...with water too. Probably the best console mod I have seen in a while.
