This $1200 PC Case Looks More Like A Motorbike Than A Gaming Rig

For many, spending $US1200 on their entire PC would be a bit much. Spending $US1200 on just the case? That's crazy talk.

Yet if you can afford it...and I know some people out there can...well, there's a case for you on the market, and it looks great. Like something that should be sitting under a panel on the Normandy, not beneath some guy's desk.

It's the Murderbox II, the follow-up to a case we showed you last year. Its creators use words like "bespoke" and "discerning" as though this were a Swiss watch or a top-shelf Mercedes, and really, considering the price and the build quality, I guess this pretty much gaming's equivalent.

It's made almost entirely out of raw aluminium that's mechanically etched and then anodized, while construction is assembled by hand.

Only 499 will be made. If one of you 499 ever actually buy one, don't send us photos of how amazing it looks, it'll just upset me.

Those reading this on something encrusted with diamonds can seriously contemplate ordering one here.

    It's not very motorcycle like apart from the chromed stainless steel (I assume/would hope) coolant tubes.

    But it's oh so pretty.

    wasn't this already posted here?

      Exactly the same text and all, by the same person, was posted on Kotaku on the 18th...

        Yeah poor form Luke, Your stories have really slipped quite a lot lately, Pick your game back up champ.

    What is this I don't even?!

    Perhaps the next step forward would be a computer fridge (similar to how people are getting wine fridges)?

    TAKE MY MONEY!!!

    I've got a pretty decent rig (that doesn't look as pretty as that). Fan noise bugs me.

    It was cross-posted from a sister site within days. Is your issue with the cross-posting or with the delay?

      Don't even get me started on cross dressing

      *blushes*

      Thanks Luke, Kotaku is blocked on my work pc so I'm happy with any good articles being posted up here.

        Yep, Kotaku blocked on my PC at work also.
        Keep on posting Luke!
        Haters gonna hate.

    I wonder what it looks like when it's a bit dusty.

    Nice...but too expensive for me. But it's a good design for case modders to try and duplicate.

    Give me the Thermaltake cases any day over this thing

      @ Mick, are there any TT models that compare to the aesthetics of this? If so which models, would love to get a nice looking case for my next build.
