    In Russia, it is cold as, well, not hell, so they love the extra heating features of the fermi cards. Some of them even use liquid heat transfer so they can have hot water all over the house.

    greghomeIf I ever had the trash can case, my mom would stuff it with yesterdays dinner thinking it's a real trash can ,and if I had the rusty case, mom would throw it away,with the grandma radio, moms would hide it thinking it's one of her antics


    Yeah, you live with your mom. Congrats.

    I see that PC (BECKS) as more of a beerwarmer than a PC cooler! What a waste of beer! THese articles are actually interesting because not all should be just benchmarks, reviews, and newbriefs.

    Well, it is actually pretty hot in there right now:

    But then again, it could be BECAUSE of all of those Nvidia cards they like to use so much :)

    That Doom 3 case mod was done a long way from Russia. It's beautiful, but the credit belongs with the builder.

    Um, that black nVidia case you keep calling 'binoculars' looks alot more like a 'drop-ship' from almost any futuristic game, especially RTSs. Notice the fans in what would be the thruster components? Yeah.

    And it's weary seeing such degrading captions. I mean, there's witty and funny... and then there's just being an ass. Besides, many of these mods look pretty good.

    Don't let the haters get to you greg. Your response was tactful, unlike the person who tried to put you down. Always good to have classy PC enthusiasts on the site, regardless of their age.

    For a more realistic Chernobyl inspired case they need a Fermi card

    Well, about 85% of Russia's wealth is concentrated in Moscow. Obviously, a lot more people in there can afford Fermi cards versus siberia, that's why it's burning hot! :P

    The PC case with the HAMMER is ZERO, nothing to do with Toms Hardware!

    Pink Floyd: The Wall. Locate art or a video clip or watch the movie.
