Build of the week: The Eternal Dragon from Dragon Ball Z

Every Monday, Build of the week highlights a unique rig from the web’s most dedicated PC building communities.

When I imagine a PC, and I’m talking about the PC that exists in the realm of ideas, the one we all think of when those two letters pop into our head—there’s a dragon coming out of it, for sure. Ethan Cooper of TAG Mods attempted to recreate The Dream in real life, using custom molds, paints, and by making his own resin dragonballs. Because, of course, it’s about damn time someone made a Dragonball Z case mod. I mean, I’ve never seen Dragonball Z, but I know it features yelling and extreme power, two ideas closely associated with PC gaming.

The Eternal Dragon features the titular dragon [Ed. note: His name is Shenron, James!] rising out of a cloud, which is where the PC guts lie. Clouds are made of pretty powerful stuff, it turns out.

James Davenport

James is stuck in an endless loop, playing the Dark Souls games on repeat until Elden Ring and Silksong set him free. He's a truffle pig for indie horror and weird FPS games too, seeking out games that actively hurt to play. Otherwise he's wandering Austin, identifying mushrooms and doodling grackles.
