Our Favorite Computex 2019 Case Mods: From Beer, to the Iron Throne and Pork Ramen

“Cap-Ten’s” Ship

German modder Cap-Ten made us want to watch sci-fi with his creation. He took off with an Intel CPU (unspecified), MSI MPG Z390I Gaming Edge AC motherboard, Trident Z Royal memory, MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Aero and Crucial SSD M.2 525GB with power supplied by the Enermax Revolution SFX 550W.

Skull Mountain

We found AI-Mask’s frightening mod at G.Skill’s booth, but it’s presumably from the depths of Hell. It houses an i9-9900K, ROG Maximum XI Gene and all the bones of our ancestors.

I’ve Come From the Future

Looking like something from a distant and way more shiny future, we found this over at Bitspower’s booth. Modder Nguyen Dinh Ban modded a case by fellow modder nhenhophach. It has an i9-9900K, Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Xtreme board, Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB DDR4-3200, Nvidia’s RTX 2080 Ti, Samsung 970 Pro NVMe M.2 SSD and FSP Hydro PTM+ 850W power supply.

    The next to last one is a Harley engine for sure.Most likely inspired by Ghost Rider.

    So, is the big Heineken beer can meant to give the impression that it's actually beer-cooled? It kind of looks like that's what they were going for, though I doubt it really is.

    Anyway, a proper beer-cooled PC should have an external passive radiator that you can pour your beer onto, whenever it starts to hit thermal throttling.

    A lot of the vehicular-themed ones really look like they ought to move. I mean, what other point is there in mounting a PC in some kind of vehicle, if it can only just sit there? Some of those case modders should team up with some roboticists and take their skill to a whole other level.
