Can’t decide if you’re a PC gamer or are you a console gamer? Well, you don’t have to choose. People in Modding Cafe created a Franken gaming system that combines a high-end desktop PC with Sony’s latest PlayStation 5 console, making it compact and easy to switch between the two. It really is the best of both worlds.
Modding Cafe’s desktop tower is powered by a water-cooled ITX motherboard powered by Intel’s Core i9-11900K processor and Asus’ ROG Strix RTX 3080 graphics card for a highly customizable PC gaming experience level. On the PlayStation side, you also get a water-cooled console to help control the temperature when the device is placed inside the desktop tower. The RGB gaming lighting system, see-through tempered glass panels, and split compartment housing design get the mod job done.
Most importantly, though, this modern dual gaming setup comes with some serious thermal management. This is especially important when running a high-end, power-hungry PC with a powerful, modern console. Besides the vents and water-cooling setup, Modding Cafe also equips this PC with several fans, cooling blocks and heatsinks to help control the temperature.
When completed, this tower may seem taller than traditional mid-sized gaming towers, but you definitely benefit from the versatility of being able to play PlayStation games or PC games. And with HDMI 2.1 support, you’ll be able to get lag-free, lag-free gaming performance on compatible displays when playing on either system. There are two buttons at the top of the case – one for PC, which is great for gaming, content creation and productivity, and the second on the PlayStation 5 console.
While Modding Cafe’s work incorporates the latest technologies – AMD’s Radeon graphics on the PlayStation face along with some of the latest and most powerful silicon available on the desktop side – this is not the first time that desktop that combines PC games and console games into one package.
Earlier examples of this wizard include the Big O computer. When this design comes out, it will give Modding Cafe’s custom PC some competition.
