Biostar case mod: PC in the engine case
The case mod from manufacturer Biostar is based on an engine block and enables fast gaming PCs.
The Biostar case mod is modeled after a V8 engine.
Many unusual case mods have popped up over the past few months and years. In February, for example, Cooler Master presented the Sneaker X, a PC case in the shape of a sneaker. Now the manufacturer Biostar is adding a case mod that is based on an engine block. The case, created in cooperation with the case modders from Mark’s Factory, is intended to advertise the manufacturer’s racing series. The Racing Z690GT V8 Overdrive housing looks like an eight-cylinder engine and offers enough space for high-quality components.
The side wings of the housing can be opened hydraulically. In addition to the components, the radiators of the water cooling can also be found here. In addition to the eponymous mainboard, the Racing Z690GT V8 Overdrive also has a Powercolor Radeon RX 6800 XT Liquid Devil, 32 GB DDR4 RAM, a 1 TB Teamgroup CARDEA Ceramic C440 M.2 SSD and a Seasonic Prime Ultra 1000 Titanium power supply unit .
Motherboard for Alder Lake
The Z690GTA mainboard allows the installation of an Intel CPU with an LGA 1700 socket. This means that the very powerful Alder Lake processors can also be used. Nevertheless, the mainboard only supports DDR4 memory. However, since this is still significantly cheaper than DDR5 RAM and gamers hardly have any advantages from the new RAM type, this is bearable. In addition, the mainboard offers PCI-Express 5.0, USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C and WiFi 6 and 6E. For fast WLAN, however, appropriate modules are required, which incur additional costs. Biostar provides details on the mainboard on its official website.
