Recently, Intel launched a competition for computer modders all over the world to show off their skill. The idea was to create the most imaginative, custom PCs to promote their new Intel Core i7 chip. And boy did they create some cool PCs. Hereâ€™s some pictures of some of the winners.Â Check out Nvidia’s contest too.
The machine here on the left, strange as it is, originates from Japan. The builder over-clocked it to the max and because it was running at such high intensities he placed a massive cooling tower on it which uses liquid-nitrogen to quickly cool the extreme heat from the CPU.
The computer to the right is an old stereo transformed into a great desktop. The two speakers on the front now act as air intake fans and there is a small display screen where the tape deck used to be. He also laced it with green LEDs and neon.
The Machine above is a small table that has been fitted out with a large desktop tower. From the back you can see how it can easily be removed for servicing and further modding. The interior of the computer is masked from public view by material as you can see in the photograph on the left. This won the award for best lifestyle design.
The video above won best in the United States and best video.Â We featured the entire case mod project on the site last a few weeks ago.Â He took an original XBOX and transformed it into a Hackintosh (it also runs Windows and Ubuntu).Â Â He also jammed in over 8GB of RAM and a 2.93 Ghz Intel Core 2 processor.
