Unless you're a gaming nerd, I'm willing to bet your desktop PC is ugly and hidden away rather than prominently displayed. It is odd that such a crucial object in our work lives receives such little design attention, but I suppose we all need what PCs deliver more than we need to have a lovely box to look at.
Nevertheless, Matt from the DIY Perks channel decided that while building his own PC, he'd completely rethink the form factor. He opted to go with external heat sinks, which then informed the design:

The rope detail kinda kills it for me. Otherwise, very cool.
Well... it has a bit of surrealist or Dadaism happening I guess. So accuse me of being old-school for industrial design, which I am a little, but what happened to Form Follows Function? And really, for the sheer aesthetics, when is Rope a good idea for detailing ANYTHING hahah?
To me, having built any number of custom PC rigs, a lot of this is just not a good idea in terms of materials.
Very cool! Great design.
Very very impressive build, except for the soap on a rope look.
The rope is to impart a pirate ship vibe for surfing around the 'bay :P
