    It looks like a very inventive work of art, it isn’t most days you see a computer good enough to stick on a wall and for it to be appreciated. Pretty please get water cooling tubes sticking out of it (lol).

    looking at this from a modders point of view im really not impressed at all. This could have been done ALOT better. First of all the total lack of cable management and the odd generic psus look like absolute crap. The idea is very cool but the execution truly sucks. Hey look at me ive nailed a bunch of parts to a plank and stuck some acrylic on top and finished it off with 6000 ccfls. THanks but no thanks.

    well.. its a mod, no doubt. But, why would someone put a rendering farm in a living room? This living room will NEVER get cold! :D
    As wolverine said it could be a lot better. But i liked the idea. Even if its not really a very original idea.

    EDIT: Hmmm it's a reception area, not a living room. And this 15 inch monitor only shows the progress of renderings. So it is a nice idea after all. Still needs a better design thou

    Give em a break, all bashing this I'd like to see your wall mounted farm. I think it looks great, with the little access station on the side too like somethin "from the future".

    And now the obligatory... but can it play CRYSIS?? lol

    All i see is grey power supplies and random metal in the close up pics but I like that he put the effort in to make it all come together.

    Stumbled across this a couple days back. Interesting idea, but my first though was, eugh badly done. Sure it looks nice from afar, but under any kind of close inspection and it totally pales in comparison to the legendary scope and beauty of the mods that go through this site. I also would have thought they would connect them so that they are accessible through the network, why use a KVM?
    I think it's a challenge to a bit modder to create something much more stylish. It does not need to be six PCs, just a wall mounted thing that looks better to show them what it could have been.

    Good going to them anyways.

    "Pentium Dual Cores" - that thing is going to be hotter than the sun, stick some Q6600's in it for christs sake you could even down-clock them and undervolt to save on heat and get a gazillion times the performance.

    a good idea badly executed imo

    Not to mention that I bet those "Pentium Dual Cores" are really Pentium D processors.
