With so many talented PC modders around, there is certainly no “the best PC mod” but there is surely the biggest when it comes to scale. Now, you must be thinking, ‘what’s there to be scale when it comes to PC mod?’ Well, that my friend is exactly what this Life-size Iron Man Mk 45 PC Case Mode is about. It is a PC buried inside a custom PC case inspired by Tony Stark’s Iron Man Mk 45 suit and it is indeed 1:1 scale. A life-size PC case mod. Take a moment to imagine that, my friends. I’d be lying if I were to say my mind wasn’t totally blown away when I first lay eyes on it.
The funny thing was, the first time I saw this PC mod on Thermaltake’s Facebook page, I was thinking it was an Iron Man collectible emptied out and a PC stuff into it. Should that be the case, it was impressive enough for me to reach out to Thermaltake for more details. As it turns out, it wasn’t a handiwork of the computer fan maker. Taking the tip from Thermaltake, I reached out to one cool dude in Thailand who was responsible for this work of art. That was my mind was really blown because, it turns out that this isn’t a puny desktop Iron Man; it is a life-size Iron Man and it is PC!
It was a holy shit moment and I knew I have to extract more information out this super cool person who made this. Granted, it is likely that this is not the biggest PC case mod to grace the modding world, but it is possibly the first 1:1 scale case mod. Created by Bangkok-based case modder Jengki Wmp, AKA the one cool dude, of World Media Plus (WMP), this Iron Man PC case mod is a sight to behold and yes, it is a functioning PC which we believe it to be a MSI Predator that is driven by an Intel i7-5820K processor on a MSI X99A XPOWER Gaming Titanium mainboard.
Graphics duty is via a NVIDIA GTX 1080 with 8 GB VRAM, while Random Access Memory is courtesy of ZADAK 511 SHIELD RGB DDR4 coming in at a grand 32 GB. Storage is also from ZADAK 511, a 240 GB SHIELD RGB dual-interface solid state drive. And befitting the high-tech nature of an Iron Man suit, it does away with ancient fan cooling and in its place is a water cooling system from Thermaltake. Finally, a Thermaltake Toughpower SFX 600W PSU completes the setup. As for the incredible case, it is 3D printed by a local company.
The ZADAK 511 components, as the respective product name indicated, features customizable LED lighting. We are not sure who WMP’s client was, but one thing we sure is, this PC case mod ranks among the craziest and it has won some awards in return.
A huge shout out to Jengki Wmp for the details and the awesome images.
