Part 2: 20 Crazy And Unique Case Mods
Now wouldn't this just be special sitting on your desktop? A nasty, dirty toilet showing a bowl full of... hardware!
This ToiletPC case mod was built back in 2001 for the QuakeCon 2001 case competition. According to its creator, Envador, it didn't place because there wasn't a category fit for its unusual design. Still, it's interesting. All that seems to be missing is the stench (that's assumed) and a roll of toilet paper.
Envador said the toilet is actually a kid's potty he bought from Wal-Mart for $9.00. The flusher is the rig's power switch and most of the hardware (including the floppy, CD-ROM, and a 45 GB hard drive) is mounted on the back.
Inside, the modder stuffed an Asus CUSI FX FlexATX motherboard packed with an ATI Radeon 7000 PCI card (remember, this was 2001), 256 MB of generic PC133 RAM, a 145 W microATX power supply, and an Intel Pentium III processor clocked at 933 MHz.
"I used a long green LED light to make the toilet glow green in the dark...nothing like some good green radioactive bio-hazard toilet stuff to top it off," Envador said.
