The trusty old desktop rarely gets the love it deserves these days. Losing gamers to consoles
and casual users to laptops
, it's left only with a loyal band of enthusiasts, but what a gorgeous bunch they are. Gary from the Bit-tech
forums has put together the above case mod, inspired by the styles of early 20th century electronics, and reminded us all that big can
be beautiful. He's managed to fit an entire water cooling setup inside, while leaving no detail undocumented in a thorough, pic-heavy walkthrough of the project. We'd have considered the stunning wooden case enough by itself, but Gary has taken care of the little touches as well, as exemplified by the spare PCI slot covers matching the external construction.
