We find it hard to keep from gushing about every Ben Heck project, and his latest is no different.

OMGWTFBBQ! What you see above is just one of many outlandish case mods to be found at QuakeCon 2008's "BYOC" LAN party annex. Given the fans and heatsinks that thing's sporting, we wouldn't be surprised if you could actually grill on it. Our sister site, Big Download, is at the annual frag fest cov...

Commodore Gaming and CCP have teamed up to produce EVE Online themed, gaming-focused desktop computers.
