Project Lament: HellRaiser Cenobite PC

Part 2: 20 Crazy And Unique Case Mods
By
Project Lament: HellRaiser Cenobite PC

We couldn't have a little Satan and pentagram inspiration without throwing in a bit of Clive Barker. For the uninitiated, this tortured soul is a Cenobite from the author's "HellRaiser" series.

According to the mod's creator, the PC is "professionally designed and hand-built." It is also completely self-contained, fully upgradable, and water-cooled. It features a built-in 6" LCD monitor, remote-controlled UV eyes, and lasers "shooting" out of its head.

So what is inside this freak show? A Chaintech 7NIF2 nForce2 IGP motherboard, an AMD Athlon XP 3000+ processor, 1 GB of Corsair XMS PC-3200 DDR memory, and an Asus GeForce 6200 video card.

As for storage, the rig has a Western Digital SE 120 GB IDE hard drive and for power it uses the 400 W CoolMax Taurus CX Series silent power supply. Logitech 2.0 stereo speakers and a CD-RW/DVD combo drive are also thrown into the mix.

Believe it or not, the modder was asking a whopping $50,000 for this unique rig, but that was back in 2007. Scary.

    They all seem kind of ugly; except the bottle of Scotch.

    A 480 SLI setup could make the toaster one functional.

    If I sit on that toilet, then there will be hot air blowing over my you-know-what.

    A fun challenge would be to go to a dumpster, close your eyes, pick any piece of junk at random, and build a system around it. That pizza box rig is impressive lol.

    I'll admit, that's a cool looking setup (I was going to build a wooden one similar for my eyefinity setup, but finances said no), but certainly not a case mod.
    hardcore gaming rig with a SSD an three monitors on one side, and storage server rocking 8x2TB RAID5 on the other with a single monitor?

    I don't like most of them since they seam just to have poor taste even for a modder except for the whiskey bottle and the piano. The Pizza box was fitting and quite original. The satanic one however I do not like at all.

    While I wouldn't exactly want (m)any of those sitting on my desk, I can certainly understand the hard work it must have taken to create them. My own case mod might not look like much (http://yfrog.com/jtimg0130kj) but it took a whole weekend of dremmelling and splicing and resulted in many cut fingers - if that's what mine took then I can only imagine what these more complex looking ones entailed.

    My PC has two slots that accept bare SATA drives. Give me the toaster, and I'll put those at the bottom of two of the toast slot. Imagine - "Time to toast this drive," and put it into the toaster.

    That case covered with fans deserves a better cpu and a more powerful gpu.

    A few of them are pretty good, most i wouldn't want as a case though

    About the fan case, just imagine how loud that would be, not only do you have 70 fans, but no side panels or anything to dampen the sound, @d0gr0ck i hope the P4 didn't get hot with that case

    personally i am just getting into painting cases, and i don't mean just spray paint and be done, the whole nine yards (sand,prime,paint,wet sand,clear coat)
