It always impresses us when free time translates into something amazing. Sean Stebor had some free time, and decided to create something different. His vision was for something "bigger than an average ATX case," and something that "would make a statement." Either way, it's badass enough for us to crown it this month's Rig of the Month.
Sean calls it Orogenesis after the Greek word 'oros' (mountain) and 'genesis' (creation). His coworkers think 'Thunder-dome' is more fitting—and we're inclined to agree. It's made from steel rods welded into 12 mesh-covered pentagons. A motherboard tray from an old ATX case serves as the basis of the computer-portion and after getting all of the parts mounted inside, Orogenesis was complete.
Each corner of the case is lit with full-spectrum LEDs with cheap plastic tubing serving as an easy way to diffuse the light. One of the pentagons is removable to allow access to the parts inside and a 250mm Rosewill fan keeps air moving across the system.
