I had the idea for this case in January but did not order the wood until late june and began the recording. This is about 50-60 hours of video into 8 minutes. I put alot of unrecorded hours in also. Not positive on total time spent on this case. My goal was to make it look 8 bit from any side you look at it. I've had some remarks that it resembles the wizard from super mario bro's which is understandable with the rod and all.

2000+ 1 inch wooden cubes
4 Elmer's glue wood bottles
Right hand is power button
Mouth is dvd tray
Fan controller/Media reader on bottom
7 port usb on shoulder (4top/3bototm)
Weighs ALOT
Hat IS removable (for travel)
2 250mm fans.

Just entered it into a competition: http://moddingcomp.custompc.co.uk/project/301/Black+Mage if anyone has a second to vote I would appreciate it but I don't want to turn this into a please vote for me video as I did not make this case for competition. I made it for enjoyment and to have something personal. Would be really neat to win with my first case mod. I appreciate the comments enough as it is :). You guys are great!
What is that flashing light thing on the wall at 7:45?
You are god.
hey this was in this months maximum pc rig of the month thing
thats awesome!
Awesome, insane, & insanely awesome. Even if it wasn't a computer case it is still a great art piece.
Thanks! I love art that can be used for things other than on a display.
Good job! Since your made this thing out of wood, I'm curious as to know how hot it gets internally.
It only has the 2 250mm fans for cooling. Intake is at the back and it vents underneath. Speedfan: Temp 1: 21C Temp 2: 29C HD0: 34C Core 0:34C Core 1: 36C Core 2: 28C Core 3: 33C All down arrows which are indicating good temperatures.
Wow. I can see that the time and effort were well spent. HADOKEN. Nah, but anyway, this is great!
Your Gp or your Hp!
Awesome. I would do something different from the black mage... Chocobo anybody?
White mage is next :D. Next year though. Need a break from the cubes heh.

Wow. I didn't realize what you were making, and I'm used to the projects over on thebestcasescenario.com, but this was freaking cool. Nice job, man!
Thanks everybody. I'm getting alot of positive comments for it :D. it has a 3.23 rating so I'm not sure who has a problem with it but I am open to feedback if they leave a comment here about it.
