Windows 7: Crazy Case Mod

No, because if you have it for games you can just rip your CDs to the HDD and use vitural drives. These days HDD space is cheaper than backup DVDs/CDs.... =) Plus you save loading times ect...

[edit] That's to say you don't have another computer. Of course it'd work as a server/workstation that's networked.

Both of those are AMAZING. Really gets me in the mood to make my case. I keep saying I will, and I intend to. Just TOO MUCH TO DO!!!!

Those are just awesome. That second one is just beautiful... I almost cried when I saw it. Too bad I can't work wood like that.

With the first one, really cool, looks nice. Cooling will be an issue....

I should get my friend to draw up what I want mine to look like. I have some ideas, but I think I want to just make a nice simple skeleton case first. About mid Tower to Tower size, with everything custom to how I like it. Side slot HDD bays, swing out mobo platform, easy access to all the parts. I may use a lexan/plexiglas outer layer to provide airflow. Or I might see if I can make a cool looking metal outer layer. If I can get that same friend to do some tribal drawings for the front airflow vents, that would be awesome providing I can cut them out like that. I see some room for an awesome case, just need the damned time!

Anyways, kudos to those two guys. That build video was awesome, and that wood case.... damn.

I must admit I would never do this or even want one, but it's cool as heck.

I have to disagree about the "waste of talent" . . . this is what talent and creativity are there for.

it helps when you have a nice shop along with the right tools.

Excellent work, good looking machine.

For some people it is just the satisfaction of making something new or better, or just seeing if you can do something others cannot.

Whats the craziest thing you've ever convinced your friends about computers. I once convinced my friend he needed a carbureator for his computer, so he could get NOS and overclock it. Google proved me wrong though.
