Vault Boy - a Fallout inspired PC Build


Another unique piece of work is done by a Fallout fan, and this time, it is a custom PC build simply called the Vault Boy. Alex, the student from Gold Coast, Australia who describes himself as a gamer who also loves PC building, created a post (build log) on, with a detailed procedure of his build, with more than 340 photos in the gallery.

Alex described the purpose of this build as an HTPC / Steam Box rig, but also because he just wanted to do some case modding for the first time. Since Fallout 3 is Alex's all time favorite game, and he just wanted something different, he went with a Fallout theme, mostly with the vault boy.
