    Custom PC builder and modder Designs By IMFACEROLL was sponsored by Ubisoft to build a custom PC for Far Cry 5, and he did an outstanding job. The case is designed to resemble one of the barns found in Far Cry 5, and not 1 detail is missing. Check out the time lapse video of the build, with an overview of the build at 18:35.

    I honestly have not seen case modding of this level in many many years. It reminds me of the "Project Mars City" build for DOOM 3 back in 2004. The only thing I think I would change is the fans and RAM. If this Far Cry 5 PC wasn't cool enough to look at, they are giving it away, the contest can be entered here. Thanks to @cagetmaru for the story.

    Giveaway is Australia only. Poo. Might want to mention that by the link.

    Very cool mod, though! I've always wondered with these super awesome detailed model-style mods how easy it is to keep them clean without damaging the paint or special bits.

    lol @ $4300 diorama. I made one inside a shoe box in 2nd grade that looked eerily similar to his adolescent design.

    I thought it was a great video watching them build it. I am no where near as creative. i get happy when i can draw a straight line.

    the only thing annoying about the game so far is the lack of being able to save as needed. it only saves at check points. but it is fun so far.

    My opinion, but I think he went too far with the internal decorations.
    As stated above, it does look like a grade school project inside.

    All the external stuff is cool, barn doors, tin roof, paint, etc.

    Wish I was eligible to win it..... I'd sell it. :D

    I would have changed the watercooling setup and un-hid the power to the gpu. Hide the radiator in the bottom of the case, then make the reservoir look like a city's water tower and put it on the hill. Then the power going to GPU, split the wires seperate and run them across some mini-telephone poles. That would look pretty cool.

    Although, it'd make computer maintenance suck on the thing. Course, I'm way too lazy to bother modding like that. Hell, I'm too lazy to even bother tucking wires.
