CRT monitor collector — Shank Mods — has just built one of the most sleeper gaming PCs.
With the help of his local Micro Center as a sponsor, he dropped thousands of dollars into the compact Hot Wheels kids PC from 1999. Working around restrictions like chassis size and airflow, Shank Mods packs the parts below:
AMD Ryzen 9 5950X
Gigabyte X570 Aorus Mini-ITX Motherboard
ASUS X570-I ROG Strix Mini-ITX Motherboard
EVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 XC Graphics Card
G.Skill Trident Z Neo Series RGB 128GB (4 x 32GB) DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL18
Samsung 980 Pro SSD 2TB M.2 NVMe
Corsair SF750 750 Watt 80 Plus Platinum SFX Fully Modular Power Supply
LG WH16NS40 16x Internal Blu-Ray Rewriter
WD 14TB My Book Desktop External Hard Drive
On top of souping up the flame-covered blue tower’s internals, Shank Mods also adds his own cosmetic touches to the gaming rig. As a bonus, he also finds the sister computer — The Barbie PC — for a double-take on the sleeper build. Check out the process above.
