The Machine - Strogg 1
The inspiration behind The Machine - Strogg 1 stems from popular id Software-based PC games like Quake 4 and Doom 3. However, the modder wanted to steer clear of other id Software-influenced, scene-based PC case mods already on the "scene," such as Project Mars City.
Instead, the modder chose to create something similar to the Strogg in Quake 4. There is also a little Star Trek thrown into the mix, with influences from the menacing Borg "resistance is futile" alien race.
Inside the mod's main component, "Frenkie123" crams in an AMD Athlon 64 3700+ processor, 2 GB of DDR memory from Corsair, two 160 GB hard disks, a DVD-RW optical drive, the Sapphire Radeon X800 GTO Ultimate with passive heat-pipe cooling, and a 400 W power supply.
To accomplish some of the exterior detail work, the modder purchased model parts that were originally used to provide hobbyists with pieces missing from store-bought kits. Two aluminum pipes were also purchased and cut in order to house two fans.
