If you are into vlogging and Youtube you may already know Casey Neistat, one of the bigger Youtubers right now and growing fast.
He is a awsome film maker and DIY guy, check him out! -> https://www.youtube.com/user/caseyneistat
Casey got my attention a couple of month ago with his hacking, customizations and other
solutions to every day problems, in his style.
So, one day when i was thinking of a theme for my next mod i decided to do a Casey Neistat themed computer build, fetching some of his creations into the case.
Not sure why iīm doing this, just a fun thing and a complete opposite of what i normally do, where i seek to perfect and do everything as perfect as it can be.
Maybe a kind of a tribute? not sure, well, here it goes!
Bitfenix NEOS case
Some drive cages from different other cases
3x3TB drives, 2x2TB drives, 1TB os-drive.
AMD 5800k APU
Asrock FM2A88X motherboard
8GB ram, Corsair Vengeance
And here it is, my Casey Neistat custom computer!
And, itīs not a build log without the pics.
The case - Bitfenix Neos Window
Casey have very custom glasses of his own, here i tried to replicate that effect he has on the glasses in the side window panel.
Made a window decal of the very same Casey, with his custom glasses on.
On his Boosted board, pictured in the top. He made a arrow to tell wich way is forward.
I took this detail into the front panel.
One other characteristic part of Casey is his "selfie-stick", he is using a Joby Gorillapod and holding his Canon 70D in one hand.
I had to snatch this detail too. Off to the store and bought a gorilla pod, removed 4 pieces of it and made it fit the case, as case feets
They had to be cut first
Turned out pretty good
In one of Caseys videos, he makes a custom carry-on bag with a custom holder for his Penny skateboard.
Skating is big in his movies, so i canīt leave this out.
Had to buy a Pennyboard just to get one, i canīt skate and i probably brake it if i tried standing on it
Here is first a picture of Caseys custom bag, and the following picture of my interpretation of it.
See his video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6bdpR_3HCU
Made a fast-forward video of the works too.
