Battlestar Galactica PC Mod Can Actually Hold Colonial Vipers, Raptors

Source: Gizmodo

This Battlestar Galactica PC is the most impressive case mods I've seen in a long while, from the front side-loading optical drive player—located behind a laser-cut transparent BSG medallion, so you can actually see the disc spinning—to the opening side bay to see the interior of the PC to the front LCD screens to the top spacecraft carrier bay, with functioning runway lights. Or maybe I have such BSG withdrawal symptoms that I find it cool no matter how tasteless it really is. In any case, the amazing craftsmanship its undeniable, as the extra shots clearly show.

The Medallion was laser cut in separate layers and pieces, then glued together. Red LEDs were added behind the bird inset to illuminate the dvd drive and provide a nice backlit effect.

Gizmodo,
Great review!!!
this is one of the most impressive and appealing case ive ever seen and I have been assembling computers for over 10 years. I personally love to put neon lights in a case, even though it has no benefits other than it looks good. Im definitely going to check out this computer very very soon. Do you know where I can buy the case? anyways great review and keep on the good work.
