    When you hear someone say "monster case mod," you think they mean "big" or "large". Rarely does the term actually mean "monster case mod." I snagged a few pictures for those of you that are unable to access the site (Russian) because you guys have to see this thing.

    is it unstable? It looks like it would be front heavy, enough so that if you pull without being careful you might tip it?

    Is it strange that I'm a little scared of that case mod?

    Impressive, to say the least. Not something my wife would like to see in the livingroom, but still ...impressive.

    6 pumps running in-line with that much air makes me cringe. It's definitely a monstrosity.

    he has two banks of 4 water pumps in series, one pump going directly into the next. i guess it looks cool; kind of a throwback to a V8 engine or something. but as someone who values function over form- that is stupid as all hell.

    if you are going to take the time to make something real cool, you better take just as much time getting it to function as you do making it look neat. not impressed.

    I love a great mod as much as the rest of you but this time I think it's mediocre to be honest - it's just an acrylic case with a bunch of stuff glued onto it. Nice job with the water cooling setup though.

    Impressive work, but not my style.


    I like subtlety. :p

    I really like the casing with the red lighting
    But not so much for the radiator and fans at the top

    Great work nevertheless, must have take a lot of time and effort to build that thing

    A good effort and stuff, you can definately see they had a concept and ran with it until the end, which is always a respectable ploy. I'd prefer things a bit neater and a bit less haphazard and a bit more purposeful, but it's a worthwhile effort. Ill have something for it to be compared with soon (I hope, just ordered a new dremel and some plasti kote :D) Like the monster theme and the lighting.

    This thing must make a crap load of noise. 10 pumps like that with no vibration cushioning would be like a hive of bees. I've got one of those pumps and without it mounted on ballistic jelly, you could hear it vibrating through the floorboards while it was on a desk :D Now imagine that times 10...

    All that watercooling equipment and it looks like the PC itself isn't watercooled.
