    Curious to know...do any of the extra bits and bobs - the gauges, the coils, odd pumps, etc - move?

    thats really cool but a bit big for my liking, I mean if it was going to be the big I would have built in a old time clock so I knew what time it was lol as it looks large enough to be a grandfather clock ^__^

    Truly an epic build! Why ppl call it a mod? - It's a scratch build.
    Few observations:
    -Easily a contender for build of the year!
    -Thing thing looks scary when lit up in the dark. I can just imagine anybody breaking into your house would become very uncomfortable when coming across this monster -WTF! So much for stealing the computer lol!
    -Excellent work on the optical drives.
    -Do you intend to make over the monitor to match the computer-it would be great if you did.

    One of the best computer mods of all time. NO doubt about that. :thumb:

    Great Job!


    Mod is a generic term used a lot for almost any custom built computer. I do it a lot, even though I know the difference. :p

    Not to take away from the craftsmanship, it's proper, but it'd be cooler if bits and bobs actually served a purpose to the pc in whole, instead of just pasted on.

    It's incredibly sound mate. Why didn't you beef up the specs though. A more modern socket type at least.

    Awesome does not even begin to cover the AWE I feel looking @ the fruits of your labour dude.
    I am deeply impressed, moved almost to tears at a mod so beautifully done.
    A Perfect 10!!!!

    According to Dana he bought the hardware a while ago when the machine was first thought of hence it's a little dated!

    And with all the modifications I think it ain't the easiest thing in the world to change hardware now.

    Amazing case...I feel silly calling it a mere case. Truly epic piece of work, congrats!

    Just one thing...come one...all that brass piping...that screams water cooling to me. If you'd somehow managed to work the water cooling into all that piping, with all the valves and dials that would be the best thing EVER!
