We have all seen a variety of case mods, however its been some time since I’ve seen one this devoted to a single fandom: Crafted within the picture of a Stormblade Tremendous-Heavy Tank from Warhammer 40,000. The construct, posted to Reddit and builds.gg by a Russian designer who goes by Alex, IncCaseCrafting, or Megolet, is usually constituted of sheets of what appears to be like like laser-cut birch plywood. Weighing between 20-25 kilograms—that is 45-55 kilos or 3-4 stone—it is a beast of a construct not simply in development, however intimately.

This is the inside, which has what Megolet thought of a take a look at construct of an i9, RTX 2060, and EATX motherboard. For now, although, it is empty: with Megolet saying they “haven’t got worthy {hardware}” for the ultimate construct, which can embrace liquid cooling.

My favourite a part of the construct, nonetheless, is the cable administration: Megolet did not do any. “There isn’t any cable administration in any respect,” they posted, saying they could not “pressure myself to do it.”

Requested how a lot the entire thing price, Megolet stated “I paid greater than 300 hours of my life. Cash was not so large.” That features time designing and chopping the elements, whereas assembling was “about 30% of the work.”

You’ll be able to see a full gallery of the case, in addition to a couple of photos from the in-progress construct, on Reddit and on builds.gg. With all due respect, this one’s going to take my prime spot of favourite case mod of 2021 away from the very cool however not a tank PS2 case.
