A Computer Case Story

Designing the XYNOS G3 computer cases is a passion of mine. Even as an experienced machinist and CNC programmer, I have always enjoyed building my own systems. Creating a computer case was the next step.

I also enjoy playing video games. One of the first PC games I played was Doom on a 386 computer. My favorite strategy games is the Command & Conquer series up until Kane’s Wrath.

Crysis Game

My favorite first person shooter game is the Crysis series, 1, 2, and 3. This game just kept getting better. I can’t say enough good things about this series. The graphics are cutting-edge and it has a great storyline to match. I hope there will be a Crysis 4 and it follows the same storyline and concept.

Our internet connection for the last 8 years has been satellite and, because of the lag, is useless at playing online games. So the games we play here are campaign, LAN, or skirmish mode.

There are a lot of other great games I could talk about, but I didn’t want this to turn into a game review, so I’ll move onto the case.

The cases available these days are all pretty much the same construction of sheet metal and plastic. When I started designing the XYNOS G3 I wanted to try something different.

Having worked in the aircraft industry making parts for Boeing, Airbus and others my plan was to machine it out of billet aluminum with an anodized finish for maximum “cool factor’.

I also wanted the case as small as possible mainly so it could sit on my desktop and still be able to run 2 video cards for maximum frame rates. To achieve this I chose to use the ATX micro main board size.

To minimize the dust in the case I added two large foam filters and two large fans for superior airflow and cooling. Monitoring the system’s performance in real time during gameplay was also important so I added two display screens.

The Crysis theme case pictured above shows how we are able to customize our cases. We hope to talk to Crytek and other game developers about creating theme cases and we’ll keep you up to date on how things go.

Building this computer case has been a challenging and rewarding experience. I hope you enjoy using the case as much as I have enjoyed designing it.
