I would have found a different PC case mod to kick off PC Gaming Lives' 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 stylized 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.
