Crazed steampunk cooling solution

While checking inbound links to his Steampunk Workshop, MAKE pal Jake von Slatt stumbled on this amazing steampunk casemod on a Polish modding forum. Really amazing, with needle guages, lots of lighting F/X, a porthole with clockworks inside, and lots of old school plumbing hardware. Not sure how much of it is functional and how much of it is decoration only, but it sure as hell looks impressive. Anybody speak Polish?

  1. I’ve read post on Mod-Planet. This is working cooling solution.

    Author worked with following assumptions:

    1) Based on normal PC case
    2) Copper, brass, wood
    3) No electronic gadgets
    4) Water cooling
    5) Analog display as many parameters as possible
    6) Maximum of functionality – every part should do more than just look good
    7) Low cost (Scrapheap Challenge) – what do I have in basement ;)

    And basically it works as expected :))

    Greeting from Poland to all Make fans ;)

  2. Very very cool.

    I especially liked the two illuminated tubes on the side. It looks like there is glitter or something in the tubes in one picture. That probably means there is screen or something at both ends of the clear vinyl tubing, and the upflowing water keeps the glitter or metal shavings moving about.
