40 amazing case mods and custom PC builds from Computex 2018

It's that time again: I've had a few days to walk the exhibition floor of Computex 2018, on the hunt for every crazy case mod and amazing RGB-laden custom PC build I can find. Most of Computex's PC hardware booths use amazing cases to lure in passers by, and it certainly works on me. One of my favorite things to do every show is put together a gallery of every build that caught my eye. 

There's nothing at the show this year that utterly wowed me like last year's Donkey Kong arcade machine case mod, which was a true work of art. But the pickings this year aren't too shabby. There's a pirate ship, a mech, a working radio, and miles of gorgeous, painstaking custom watercooling in this gallery. Enjoy!

Wes has been covering games and hardware for more than 10 years, first at tech sites like The Wirecutter (opens in new tab) and Tested (opens in new tab) before joining the PC Gamer team in 2014. Wes plays a little bit of everything, but he'll always jump at the chance to cover emulation and Japanese games.


When he's not obsessively optimizing and re-optimizing a tangle of conveyor belts in Satisfactory (it's really becoming a problem), he's probably playing a 20-year-old Final Fantasy or some opaque ASCII roguelike. With a focus on writing and editing features, he seeks out personal stories and in-depth histories from the corners of PC gaming and its niche communities. 50% pizza by volume (deep dish, to be specific).
