Pictures: The 20 most unusual PC cases

A PC case can be more than just a box

When it comes to computer cases, you don't have to be stuck with a boring grey box. PCs have been packed into everything from pianos and petrol pumps to whisky bottles. We've rounded up the 20 most unusual PC cases.

Chris Blarsky's The Hulk

In 2007, modder Chris Blarsky modeled this computer after his favorite Marvel Comics character. When he originally designed this monster, it had an 866MHz Intel Pentium 3, 1GB of PC133 RAM, and an 80GB hard drive.

But just like its movie counterpart, this Hulk was begging for a massive overhaul. Blarsky told me that he's about to load up his mod with a 3.0GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a Hulk-size 2TB hard drive.

The Barbecue Grill

You can't throw a sausage on this grill, but this PC can fry up some gaming goodness. Found on Big Download, this case mod was a mind-blowing special from the 2008 QuakeCon festival and party.

The Barbecue Grill, specifically built for gaming, packs an impressive visual punch, too - I especially like the glowing orange fans that simulate the burning charcoal.
