The 3 Most Incredible PCs Of February 2014

PC modding stems from the days when enthusiasts that built their own PCs tried to improve cooling and make their bland beige boxes a little more attractive. Eventually, people with skills in painting, carpentry and metalwork all joined the fray with some amazing results that ended with PCs looking like they were meant to be around in the 25th century, not the 21st.

I’ve posted a few articles on the weird and wonderful world of PC modding such as the The 20 Most Amazing PCs Ever Made, and with so many incredible new projects hitting Internet forums the world over every day, this is the first of a new, exciting monthly roundup where I’ll be showcasing three of the most striking PCs I’ve spotted during the last few weeks.

First up for February 2014 is a very racy-looking project called Electric Orange by a user called Hanoverfist over on The Mod Zoo forums.

This case mod is based on case manufacturer Antec’s  DF-85 case, which has been custom-painted and fitted with a water-cooling system, temperature readouts, automatic fan control systems and custom-braided power cables. It’s also one heck of a good-looking PC.

The next in our top three has been made entirely from scratch – Electrocutous Orchid by forum user craig – toyoracer over on www.bit-tech.net  was actually made for his wife as a laptop replacement, who demanded the PC be good looking and purple.

The case is made from curved pieces of acrylic and metal, painted purple and with the interesting additions of a built-in screen and speakers.

The final project this month is a must-see for any Star Wars fans and is called simply STAR WARS – The Naboo Modding. It’s based around a case called the CM690 III from Cooler Master and uses a custom water-cooling system to deal with the heat from the hardware.

By adding various bits of plastic card and applying paint, forum user _0CooL_ proceeded to modify the whole case and even his mouse and keyboard too – they certainly look ready to be entered into the next pod race.

You can see the extensive build log for the project here. That’s it for February – The 3 Most Incredible PCs will return next month with more eye-popping images of the craziest PCs.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
