Default Hot Hammerhead Case Mod Costs $2,900

We’ve seen a lot of incredible mods over the years, and the most disappointing thing about all of them is that there’s usually only one ever made. Case-in-point: This one-of-a-kind case mod we spotted at CES.

The latest in drool-worthy cases that only one of us can have comes from former racecar designer and engineer, Matthew Kim.

This is the Hammerhead 98902 PC. Sure, it’s got the usual suspects, like LED lights and exposed fans, but with its panels of Ecoresin plastic and CNC machined anodized blue aluminum, this is a case like no other. Kim says the components are all easily accessible because they’re attached to a true frame, which makes the PC easily modifiable and quickly adjustable, just like a racecar.

Rather than just selling the case by itself, Kim is selling the Hammerhead as a full Core-i7 PC. Full specs are listed below:

* Blue CNC brushed and anodized aluminum frame
* Supermatte White Ecoresin panels with Mil-Spec quick release system(motherboard side only)
* 2.8Ghz Intel Core i7-860 cpu
* 4 Gb ram
* 1 40 gb Intel solid state disk drive
* 1 640 Gb front loaded "hot-swappable" hard drive
* 1 extra hot-swap tray for a second hard drive
* nVidia ENGTX460 graphics card
* Optical CD/DVD drive
* Kingston 750W modular power supply
* Windows 7 64-bit Home premium

Kim says he noticed how little the average PC had changed over the last 20 years when the time came for him to buy a new computer for himself.

“I mean, apart from a few models, they were all rectangular boxes, having the same tired internal layout with endlessly uncreative cosmetic variations,” he says. “So I decided to design and build something special on my own, combining my experience as an architect and engineer. I wanted to design something that would change the way people think about computers - a technological jewel, rather than an ordinary box, destined for a life of dusty obscurity. I wanted people to look at it and ask "ooh, what is that?" with a curious smile.”
