This Case Mod was inspired by the works of horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. A lot of his tales in the "Cthulhu Mythos" dealt with Elder Gods and Things That Man Was Not Meant To Know. This design is not a literal depiction of any one thing, more of an interpretation of a PC that has transformed. The name, which seemed appropriate, was inspired by Lovecraft's Elder God, Hastur, He Who Must Not Be Named. (least you accidentally summon him to you; which never ended well)
(This Case & Computer were built between Jan & October of 2003. Details of construction can be found at the links on the bottom of this page.)
The concept for this Mod occurred in 2002, before I upgraded my system. I decided to go ahead with it and purchased the parts with the mod in mind.
I upgraded the Mobo & CPU to a 3ghz in Dec 2005
Because the voices told me to! Because it was a challenge! Because it became an obsession! Because I wanted to knock the socks off you! Because I knew I could!
This was done over the course of about 10 months, sometimes working daily, sometimes letting a couple of weeks lapse. Cost to do this was not recorded for two reasons.
One: It's a work of art, and you can't put a price tag on art.
Two: I didn't want to scare myself.
