Cool Edelweiss Case is Like the ThermalTake BMW

We’re all a fan of fancy PC cases, not just novelty mods such as the Wall•E or Super NES case. We like our form and we like our function. This gorgeous case has its good looks, and also various cooling possibilities. Does it seem familiar? Earlier this year we saw the BMW DesignWorks-penned ThermalTake case, which from an aesthetics point of view was a huge hit.

It turns out, however, that the idea wasn’t exactly original. Pictures from MDPC show a PC case concept called the Edelweiss from 2006, designed by Pius Giger. MDPC makes it clear on its site that the case design predates the one from ThermalTake and BMW DesignWorks, while also noting that it’s since been rebuilt on June 18, 2009 since its original 2006 model.

We’ll try to find out more about this case, but in the meantime, feast your eyes on the pictures below:

    "LOL WTF is that?"

    Or at least that's what all your guests would say when they saw it...

    it kinda looks like a piece of lab equipment with all the tubes and stuff... however I bet there will be comments like "it will have bad airflow" please pay attention, it is water cooled. Might be perfect case for higher end enthusiasts.
    Also seems as it is more convinient than that BMW case due to the lack of enclosure

    And since its water cooled and everything a lot of people wont go that far, i pretty much bet it cost over $400
