The most insane custom PCs we saw at Computex 2018

Computex always brings some crazy new components to the PC market, and what better way to show them off than by integrating them into a bonkers custom PC build?

From liquid submersion cooling to Star Wars inspiration to high art, there's a bit of everything when it comes to the custom PCs of Computex. They may not be the kind of PC you'd want to have on your desk every day (okay, may you do, I won't judge), but they do stand as a showcase of both the newest technology and the artistry that can go into building the cases.

I just hope you like blinky lights, because there's a lot of that.

  • Puke @ all that RGB.
    It's hideous. Do people actually like that stuff???
    I guess that's why I love cases from companies such as Streacom. Minimalist, but also very classy.
  • While I have no need for all the lighting, it does look absolutely wicked.
    I was especially impressed with the submerged systems. Specifically how they did not short-circuit. I have build my fair share of PCs through the years, but those modders man … Absolutely mesmerizing :)
