Note: So this is it! Boddaker, our PC modder extraordinaire, is finally ready to show us his creation. As you all know by now, this was a part of Raptr’s Battlefield vs. Call of Duty Showdown promo that invited gamers to discuss the merits of the Battlefield and Call of Duty franchises. One lucky winner of the debate was selected to receive this PC gaming rig. Congratulations to Raptr user Psych091! — Raptr blogger dino-in-chief.
Hi, it’s Boddaker here — for the final time.
I’m very excited to reveal the final images of the Battlefield vs. Call of Duty Showdown’s grand prize, the Ultimate Rig! What started out as a simple idea around creating a ‘military-themed’ PC evolved into this gaming rig featuring a minigun and a beverage cooler!
I’m rather proud of how the whole thing came out. You can see we custom-painted the side panel with a Battlefield-inspired theme and incorporated a Raptr dino logo.
Here is the other side of the PC mod. You can see the window cut out and the first-aid kit attached to the side.
If you’ve been following my progress on this blog, you already know that the first-aid kit is actually a USB-powered beverage cooler! :)
Here is a closer look at the minigun and the custom-made sniper fan grill.
These are custom-made control switches. One turns on and off the PC and the other controls the minigun. Yes, the minigun actually rotates!
You can see the inside of this rig with the side panel removed. Just to reiterate, this is one beast of a gaming machine. It has the cutting-edge AMD FX 8150 processor as well as TWO Radeon HD 6970 graphics cards, a 60GB solid state drive AND a 1TB SATA III hard drive.
Here is a short video that shows the rig in action.
I’d like to thank Origin PC for providing most of the hardware, CoolerMaster for the awesome case, MNPCTECH for the ‘Sniper’ fan grill and the toggle switches, and of course the guys at Raptr for making this project happen. And although they weren’t official sponsors of the promo, the AMD guys helped with our hardware choices. So thanks again for everyone’s help. Hope you enjoy.
