We’ve seen a lot of awesome console mods in our day but this one probably takes the cake for most ‘most over-the-top mod.’ It's liquid cooled Nintendo Wii! Why? We're not sure, either.
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?
