Andrew Heaton >Published Sep 26, 2022 at 14:38 ET Fallout 4 Gaming hardware If you're familiar with building a gaming computer, there are many ways to do it. One way is to take a limited-edition video game accessory and stuff it with PC hardware.

Reddit user OceanSlim created this amazing rig using a Fallout 4 Pip Boy Special Edition capsule case to make a custom-built PC. Although it isn't the most powerful gaming PC, it has an Intel i5-3470 CPU and an Nvidia Gigabyte GTX1050 Ti. 16GB DDR3 RAM, all on an Asus B75M+ motherboard. But it's the unique way OceanSlim managed to make the most of the space left over from Fallout 4 that makes it special.

Reddit users have expressed concern that the custom gaming computer doesn't have airflow. OceanSlim claims that the lid of the case remains open while the system is on. This allows it to run at 85° Celsius, even "playing high-end gaming." Pun intended! It's a pun!

Many people have created some truly unique gaming PCs. One God of War PC fan transformed their system to be fitting of Kratos' rage. Another celebrated fifty years of MASH, a hit US comedy-drama with custom assets.

OceanSlim demonstrates that there is more to building a custom gaming computer than just having the best specs. This is a fascinating example of how the outside can be as important as the inside.
