Little Hand (Han Yu) is a modder from China who is a master of creating insanely delicate PC mods (perhaps having little hands helps!).  Here is the Strix Knight; a steel Strix owl wrapped around a custom designed and constructed tower PC chassis!  Witness awesomeness as it is crafted with precision and patience.

Preparation

When so many pieces are involved, it would take a while before the design takes shape.

Foundation

The whole case is made of steel. You'd be forgiven for thinking it's based on an existing chassis, but this is built from the ground up!

Liquid Cooling

Little Hand has decided to do the unconventional, with the motherboard flipped 90°, facing the opposite side and the liquid cooling radiator at the front of the case.  We like it!

 The Front

The front looks Transformer-ish-slash-Lord of the Rings-ish-slash-Games of Thrones-ish; whichever way you look at it, it looks wicked indeed.

The Top

This certainly looks like it could take real punishment. Or deliver it! Careful with those fingers.
