I am officially geeking the hell out over this.
We showed you a string of cool and interesting case mods shown at Computex this year, but this one from Australian modder Corey Gregory. He’s entering a case mod competition being run by components and peripheral manufacturer Thermaltake, and by God is his entry a doozy.
It’s called the TIE Fighter Advanced PC. I’m not sure whether the standard TIE fighter configuration would have been better from a stability or balance point, but the advanced chassis looks bloody good as is.
Inside the case is a ASUS ROG Maximus VIII motherboard, an Intel i5-6600K CPU, 2x ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Strix GPUs, 16GB of DDR4 RAM from Avexir running at 2666MHz, Thermaltake liquid cooling and a Thermaltake 1250w power supply.
Gregory’s superb mod is currently fourth place in the public poll, which you can join by going through to the Thermaltake forums. No-one else from Australia or New Zealand is taking part in the first season, and Gregory’s case is only a couple of hundred votes behind the current front-runner.
Win or lose, however, it’s a sensational build. You can follow the rest of Gregory’s modding through the Imfaceroll Gaming Facebook group. I’m sure this won’t be the last time we see him in a case modding competition.
