Those building custom PCs consider many elements and options when planning and starting their journey. Most of the decisions they make will revolve around the inner workings of their rigs. However, a PC that builds a TikToker is like, if not more focused on how unique their PC looks from the outside, packing everything they need into an Xbox mini fridge to make it work the way they want .
This interesting, innovative and very practical project is provided by Arkitechnology (via PCGamesN). To be clear, this isn’t one of the full-size refrigerators that Xbox made as a joke (and gave Snoop Dogg one). This is the Series X mini Xbox made after big meme-based games proved so popular, and Arkitechnology has managed to pack a lot of stuff into it.
Usually a rig of this size can hold some pretty standard equipment. However, Arkitechnology includes an MSI GeForce RTX 3090 and a 750W power supply. Incredibly impressive, but it’s not perfect. While just about anything can fit in the fridge, there’s no room for an AIO cooler that hangs in the back. You’ll also need to find somewhere else to store limited-edition Halo-branded cans of Rockstar energy drinks.
This isn’t the first unconventional case Arkitechnology has used to house its PCs, but it’s probably the best and most logical case yet. Their GPUs used to live in desk drawers. Not just sitting in a drawer waiting for the owner to come up with the idea of a refrigerator, but in the drawer that really makes a difference. This actually sounds convenient. TikTokers are also already thinking about where to move it next, with some suggesting to mount the GPU inside their walls. This sounds a bit like the premise of the Goosebumps book.
PC maker Henry Cavill might want to take some notes from Arkitechnology’s Xbox refrigerator build. The Witcher star shared an update to his own outfit this week, revealing that he needs to add more fans after his AIO cooler dropped him.
