Rough case is a fine example, and it's always great to see a boring old beige case receiving a much-needed makeover. Tipchic has also made a new hard disk cage using what appears to be scrap steel from the case itself.

The front panel has also gone under the Dremel in order to make way for three 120mm fans, and here we can see the beginnings of an interesting-looking water-cooling system too.

Making your own waterblock is often a dicey affair, but Tipchic has pulled it off very well with this cross-hatched copper contact plate.

A large heater-core-type radiator currently rests on the top of the case, which we suspect will receive plenty more in the way of steampunk styling in the future.
