Hybred Casemod Combines Pc, Display in Single Box
June 27th, 2008
This bold all-in-one computer borrows its combo concept from the iMac, but is actually a gaming PC. Modder Ville ‘Willek’ Kyrö always liked the idea of small-form-factor computers, but wanted the expandability and power to run his PC games. Being a talented modder with numerous cases under his belt, Willek decided that could have his cake and eat it too.
The Hybred Gaming PC takes up residence in a custom-built aluminum box, housing both the PC’s motherboard and a 17-inch LCD panel. The system runs on a reasonably speedy Athlon64 3500+ CPU, with graphics powered by an ample nVidia GeForce 6800GT on a PCI-e bus.
In order to keep things cool, Willek separated the power supply from the computer, placing it inside an industrial-strength external case, complete with matching accent lighting.
The whole machine is illuminated by tons of LEDs, which makes it glow a bright orange when the lights go down. I especially dig the glowing Titan aluminum fans which provide plenty of visual interest from the back of the case.
iMac, eat your heart out.
