This Godfather Case Mod Is As Compelling As A Severed Horse Head

I would have found a different PC case mod to kick off our weekly celebration of the art of enclosure craft, but this Godfather-themed masterpiece made me an offer I probably could have refused but chose not to.

Were I capable of crafting my own glorious PC-containing creation featuring the likeness of Marlon Brando, it would have turned out very different from what modder Omar Majzoub showed off at a recent Campus Party event in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I probably would have gone with Brando circa 1996's The Island of Dr. Moreau. His entire body. It would contain a PC, all three major consoles, several handhelds, and a sit-down Pac-Man arcade cabinet.

Omar keeps things classy in his MSI and Cooler Master sponsored creation. Brando is a slim and relatively fit Don Corleone, keeping watch over PC motherboard while a 1940 Cadillac Fleetwood rotates on a turntable, bathed in a glowing azure light within a stylised wooden enclosure.

Technabob gives us the skinny on the machine bad enough to attract a don's attention.

Under the hood (of the PC, not the car), there's an MSI Z68A-ZD80 mobo, with a Intel Core i7-2600K Quad-Core CPU, 16GB of DDR3 RAM, a pair of MSI GeForce GTX 550 Ti Cyclone II OC graphic cards, two SATA3 120GB SSDs, 1TB and 2TB hard drives, powered by a Cooler Master Silent Pro M850 power supply, and cooled with V8 and Excalibur fans.

Smart, sexy, and powerful, just like the man himself. Well played, Mr. Majzoub.

    Oh....I clicked on this thinking the case was actually the car. Still very cool though.

    Also, considering the rest of the specs, having two 550's seems kinda silly. Why build a nice PC and then cheap out on the graphics cards?

      Maybe they were worried the extra heat would melt their plastic Marlon Brando?

        You cant melt Marlon Brando without engulfing the multiverse in flames.

          The horror...

    I suppose I'm the one who has to make the Modfather joke?
