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.
Popular Mechanics' liquid-cooled Muscle PC desk
This desktop is all about muscle. It sports a 3.0Ghz Intel Quad Core 2 processor; two 300GB, 10,000rpm hard drives; a PaLit GeForce GTX 280 graphics card; a custom-made, flush-mounted touchpad from Synaptics, and a Blu-ray drive that ejects up from the desktop surface. Seven fans keep this monster from overheating, and Popular Mechanics threw in 13 neon lights to illuminate the desk.

The Mercedes LAN Truck
There are case mods, and then there are truck mods. Nicknamed the LAN Truck, this little number was built by an unknown modder who used a Tamiya 1/14th Mercedes Benz truck model and packed an MSI Mega 651 PC inside.
The LAN Truck sports a 2.8GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, a 7in touchscreen and a PlayStation 2 adaptor. The LAN Truck was featured at the 2005 CeBit conference in Hanover, Germany.
