    Specs:
    UPDATED 6-09
    NOW WITH A MATCHING MONITOR AND KEYBOARD. BOTH PAINTED TO LOOK RUSTED AND ADDED "RIVETS" TO THE ITEMS! LOOKS VERY INDUSTRIAL!

    CHANGED TO: Q9550 CPU; EVGA 790I ULTRA; 2 EVGA 9800GTX+; 1 Razer Barracuda Soundcard; 2 GIGS OCZ Flex II; Vista Home Prem 32bit, Antech 1000w PSU, Lite-On It DVD RW, Seagate 320 + 640 HDs,

    Mods:
    Drilled varrious holes throughout case to run Tygon Ultra Soft tubing; mounted Danger Den radiator on right side panel; built a housing for the radiator w/ white styrene sheets .080mm from Hobbylinc; painted sheets w/ Alclad metal finish and then used rusting material from MicroMark; sealed paint effect w/ tripple thick clear coat from Krylon; installed many UV lights to illuminate UV non-contuctive coolant; enhanced custom Biohazard paint job; painted green slim coming out from many cracks w/clothing paint; connected fans to a Sunbeam baybus fan controller; all wires were sleeved and extended with electrical componets from Frozencpu; used custom fan grills from MNpctech; installed Koolance nossels and Quick Disconnects; wraped Tygon tubing w/ Primoflex anti-king wraps; purchased danger den radiator and Swiftech watercooling parts from Frozencpu and Preformancepcs; used custom printed case badges from Directron; UV lighting from Xpcgear; Lian Li P-60 plus case from CrazyPc; used stickers and stenciles from HobbyLobby; did my own custom painting on the warning signs; used hardware from Home Depot; drilled all holes w/ Dremel and inserted rubber gouments of varrious sizes;

    BIOHAZARD CASE MOD by Kurt Leyba, Denver Custom Cases; this mod took about a month to build; due to the many paint jobs, the case had many layers; I was going for the government waste effect, or irresponsiblity; at first, I wasn't sure that mounting the radiator outsinde on the side panel would look good...I didn't think the box housing that I built would look good...but after painting it, I was surprised by the effect. the best part is the "Acid Green" non-conductive coolant from Feser gives it the bubbling, churning effect I was going for.

    Very nice
    8/10 only cuz the pink tubes look a little out of place with the rest of the color scheme and also you didnt do anything with your optical drive.
    Maybe paint the existing bezel or get one of those aluminum ones

    other than that one of the most creative builds ive seen

    neocrisis you gotta be kidding 8/10. the pink tubing looks fine, and who cares about the optical drive. you should take another look at his work and take into consideration EVERYTHING else. not just the negative things. 10/10 from me! AMAZING WORK!

    The UV lights are....well, UV not pink. as a former Marine who has been in combat, nothing w/ pink will ever come across my desk. how will that look at the Marine reunion? I would have to give up my Man Card! I've seen actual US Government biohazard items like these from leaking battery acid to toxic chem. seeping from thier worn-out containers. that is where I got this theme. I mod PC and sell them on Ebay, and again, I will not use pink as a medium.

    I feel the same way but for $3,550.00 total rip lol.. To me anyways. BUT you cannot say he did not put a hell lot of work in to it and it does look like a real good job done. and it's worth a good vote i just would not buy it at a fraction of the price as in the end it's ugly to me and not worth that..

    $3550 is not a RIP; it's a steal!!! even if you do not like the theme, that it is too "ugly," and that's why you think it's not worth the asking price, I must point out what's inside that drives the price.

    the 3 8800 GTX graphic cards in 3 way SLI run @ $1300 alone! then you add-in the CPU, motherboard, high-end watercooled RAM, and the very expensive watercooling hardware; that's how you can understand the very low asking price. then figure in the amount of work, the cost of the specialized tools, and the model items used that were all high-end, then you can understand how quickly the cost rises.

    so, if you think it's "ugly," then I accomplished what I set out to do....and that is a case that is an industrial accident!

    KURTLEYBA, I tried to respond to your PM about the Legos but you have PSs disabled.
    The Lego Case uses regular Legos and measures 7" square and 3 1/2" tall. Mark

    I gave you a 9. This case is one of the best I have seen as far as creativity goes, especially for those using store bought cases. Looks like something from the terminater movie.

    Kick-Ass Biohazard themed PC, & worth every penny of the asking price, as a builder, I can see all the hard work that went into this mod, Awesome work.
