PC In A Microwave

Part 1: 20 Crazy And Unique Case Mods
By
PC In A Microwave

Seen here at the CES 2003 exhibition, this mod should speak for itself, using a microwave oven as a chassis. Mounted on the top is a DVD drive and the microwave door is actually an LCD panel. Within the device, you won't find room to heat up a meal, but rather the PC components. The modder replaced the microwave's controls for PC-based controls including the power, reset, and even volume buttons. The only thing missing here is a background image on the LCD depicting a severed, cooked head.

    I saw the Borg cube, and I jumped back. Holy Fu...
    I am awed.

    The competition that the motorcycle SLI rig was in also had a lot of beautiful rigs in it.

    Thanks, lots of cool cases to finish my night off. :)

    There's one impressive case mod missing: the Wall-e case mod. Not that the ones shown here are bad, mind you.

    My microwave is a 1000W, a GTX 480 is 250W.
    They got quad-sli working for them yet?
    Granted, the Fermi would just blow hot air, and the microwave... well, microwaves. So I guess it depends on how much patience you have (someone already tried cooking a egg on a Fermi).

    At a Battletech/Mechwarrior fan, I LOVE the battlemech case- even though it's not an Atlas- as near as I can tell it's a Uller (or a Puma?)

    When i can start naming these mechs like that... I need to get a job.

    On the microwave one, they should be playing the video of microwaving an ipad :)

    fatedtodieI saw lots of cases where they spent long hours "designing" a case, only to use crap hardware or crap air flow.Yes these are are art, but they are worthless for computing.When I see a case built with look and function both having taken the time (anyone using stock fans is disqualified for being a moron) and patience to make a worthwhile case.+1 for the thought, -5000 for execution.


    you obviously are not reading. check when the cases were made and i think you'll see their specs pretty hardcore during their time. jeez...

    The Red Case Mod is the classiest mod ever made to a computer hands down

    Yeah, the Atlas mod isn't anything like an atlas. Not even close. Completely the wrong type of legs, Atlases have a very distinctive head, and they have normal arms not gun arms.

    Its hard to say exactly what it is closest to, but definitely a Clan 'Mech and the Atlas is 100% classic Inner Sphere.

    Its a cool mod, just named completely wrong.

    Very slick. Too bad the Wall-e case was missed, I agree. Too bad the Tie Fighter one was missed too. But you can't count on everything being here. No matter what you find, there are always more out there.

    fatedtodie, my charity build had an i7 975, 12 gigs of Crucial DDR3, Quad SLI 295s, and two Crucial 256 gig SSDS in raid 0. All water-cooled with Danger Den water-cooling. So what where you saying about Performance? All of my builds kick tail including my current project, Brimstone, which has TRi SLI 480s and will have a Gulftown proc in a couple weeks:
