Godfather Case Mod Cannot Be Refused

By - Source: Case Mod Blog | B 36 comments

Don Corleone is the godfather of your motherboard.

Designed by Omar Majzoub, this Godfather PC mod was spotted at a recent Campus Party event taking place in Sao Paolo, Brazil, where gamers and enthusiasts gather once a year for a week long 24-hour tech festival with over 7000 attendees. Unlike his nightmare inducing Chucky mod from last year, Omar's Godfather mod is surprisingly free of any creepiness such as a severed horse head.Instead of a bloody mess, the Godfather mod actually features a large, clean setup in a classy ornate case. As expected out of a Godfather case mod, it's also packing some serious heat with an MSI Z68A-ZD80 motherboard, i7-2600K CPU, 2x MSI GeForce GTX 550 Ti, 2x SATA3 120GB SSDs, 1TB and 2TB HDDs and 16GB of RAM.

As far as decorative aspects go, the main attraction is a 1940 Cadillac Fleetwood that spins on a turntable as a Don Corleone figurine stands by. It may not be the most theatrical of case mods, but what the case may lack in gimmicks it makes up for in style. All of the PC components and Corleone's precious car are very neatly fitted in a custom designed case with gold accents and framework.

    There's a fine line between a cool looking case mod and just sticking a motherboard and fans to the inside of a large display cabinet...

    Would have gone with a pair of MSI GTX560 Ti Cyclone 2 instead.

    Can't call this "godfather" if it's only running SLI 550ti.

    That's not usually the point but I get what you are saying.

    If the enclosure (display case) is custom made by the modder, than I can applaud the creator, but only out of respect, if that is an enclosure that was meant for something else and "modded" to suit this build, I would deduct for points. Kudos for making it your own, but as mentioned, this mod is lost on me. Though I am a fan of the movies.

    I would just go for the turntable, the car and the don's figurine. That minus all the heat at the back looks amazing from the POV of the mod. Love the LEDs on the roof, make the whole thing look like a showroom. But..... they somehow don't mix in with the backdrop. A plus 10 for originality yes.

    This is a scratch mod, and has a lot of fine detail. You don't have to like it, but it would be good to respect the amount of work that went into it. Most modders give props for this build. Modding isn't about the fastest machine necessarily but about creativity. And sometimes about challenge or difficulty. Think about Joe Satriani or John Petrucci, you may not be a huge fan, but you gotta respect the mad skills. I happen to be a big fan of both.
