We saw a couple of absolutely awesome cases this time around.
This machine was knocked up by our old buddy from Aqua Computers
. We featured his awesome case in our last i-Series coverage, and since then he's been busy on a new model. This version uses an unreleased (as yet) case from Lian-Li, as well as plenty of Aqua-Computer watercooling kit. The awesome laser etching was done using his own workshop machine. A pretty impressive job we think!
Opening up the side of the case reveals the almost-even-more-impressive interior. Watercooling kit abounds, with even the SLI setup cooled. Better than that, the voltage regs on the motherboard also get the WC treatment - making for some pretty awesome overclocking! Some Corsair Xpert RAM with LED readouts finishes an sweet job.
We were also blown away by this case dedicated to Guild Wars: Factions. The modder is a dedicated Guild Wars player and this case took him one month of solid work to finish. Amazingly, it started life as an old Pentium 2 server case before being gutted, painted, airbrushed and modded to the point that its origins are unrecognisable!
There is some fantastic detailing in the case, including home-made acrylic etches and some gorgeous hand airbrushing. We're going to be bringing you the full write-up on this case, so stay tuned!
