Case Mod Friday: My 1995 IBM Aptiva

About this mod / project:
I wanted to share my build, as it’s really been a labor of love for the past month. I trash picked it from a local computer store in December, and it’s come a long way since then.

It started life in 21 years ago 1995 with a 486dx2 running at a mind blistering 66mhz, with a massive 4mb ram, and 1mb video memory. The 3.5 floppy disk could hold a maximum data capacity of 1.44MB. As of a few days ago, it now has a an Intel i7 6700k running at 4.3ghz, 16GB’s of 3000mhz ddr4 ram, and 8GB’s video memory. The 3.5 floppy drive can read up to 512GB of data from a single diskette. This was not a plug & play build. Massive amounts of cutting, fabrication, welding, grinding, a filing were required. It was awesome.
