Default Unique CaseMod Mimics Cray-1 SuperComputer

35 years following its introduction, and despite fewer than 100 systems deployed, the Cray-1 remains one of the most recognizable computers in history; it is a timeless icon of pure supercomputer badassery. Custom case builder [Daryl Brach] pays homage to this classic with his third-scale model housing two modern PC motherboards.


In an interesting reversal, the base of the model the upholstered bench that housed cooling and power distribution for the original Cray holds the PC motherboards and storage, while the upper section is currently just for show but may house a water cooling rig in the future.
