This system, dubbed Master of Dimension, took first place in the Tower Mod category. Inspired by the innards of automotive engines and liberal doses of science fiction, it hopes to show off the hardware that powers it in its full glory.
Meet Gigantea. Yup, that's a giant something alright. Based off the Cooler Master Elite 130, with a generous serving of legs on the side, this case is quite literally a robot centipede. It came in second in the Tower Mod category.
And here's the third place in the Tower Mod category. The Master X5 is based off the Cooler Master MasterCase 5, and is crammed full of high-end hardware like an MSI X99A MPower motherboard and an Intel Core i7-5820K processor.
Thought the previous few cases were fancy? We haven't even gotten to the good stuff yet. Ghost Rider took the first prize in the Scratch Build category, and it's not difficult to see why. In fact, we actually saw this case at the ASUS booth at Computex 2016, and trust us when we say that it is even more imposing when viewed in the flesh.
So apparently this is a PC case, and not some alien pod from the future. Dubbed re.born, it came in second in the Scratch Build category and is intended to showcase the hardware inside from different angles, instead of through the standard side panel window. These days, it's all about being transparent.
Part man, part machine? Nope, just all machine. The GSW Cyborg came in third in the Scratch Build category, and it's one of the more outlandish builds we've come across. Hand-constructed entirely out of steel, the thing even has a vaguely medieval look to it with all that armor plating.
But wait, the people have a say too! The Pandora Box Pegasus won the People's Choice Award in the Tower Mod category, and it shows off the softer side of case modding with a design inspired by the Japanese manga series Saint Seiya.
And then there's this case, the TriHexa 666 - Apocalypse Dragon. It is every bit as ostentatious as its name, and bagged the People's Choice Award in the Scratch Build category. Built out of old vehicle parts and scrap metal, it features distinct red LED accents to bring out the essence of an underworld that is less ethereal darkness and more fire and brimstone.
