Concretronic: Heaviest Computer You’Ll See Today

I’ve seen some crazy ass PC casemods over the years, but this one is definitely one of the nuttier ones I’ve seen in a while. What we have here is a PC with a case made of concrete.

Modder D. Hei├če (who was last sighted with a PC in a tree trunk) decided to make the Concretronic for a recent modding contest.

Yes, the case for the PC is made from a single, seamless layer of concrete, wrapped around a curvy metal structure made from welding rods and steel sheets, with embedded plexiglas windows so you can see inside. The substructure of the Concretronic was made from hand-cut aluminum sheets, powder-coated white.

He even managed to come up with cast-concrete power and hard-drive indicators on the front of the case. I also really love the custom HDD and SDD covers on the drives. What a nice design touch.

The whole thing is really a masterwork of casemodding, and if you’re at all interested in how it was built, head on over to The Best Case Scenario for the full build log.
