Awesome PC cases of Computex 2014 (pictures)

PC cases can be really boring. But at Computex there are always amazing cases to be found. From gorgeous designs available off the shelf to the creative work of serious modders, here's the best we saw at this year's show.

Lian Li's DK-02X is what you would get if you were lazy and didn't want to carve out a hole in your table to mod a PC in. This model will retail for $1,189 (£709, AU$1,280) and is set to debut in the third quarter.

As you can see, it has space for two PCs, although one of them has to be using a mini-ITX motherboard due to space constraints.

If you don't need such a big case, the smaller DK-01X may be a better choice. It's also $200 cheaper than the DK-02X and will be available in the third quarter as well.

Last but not least is this coffee table model -- the DK-Q1 is ideal for the living room. Pricing is not yet available, but it will launch at the same time as the other two larger models.

Seen from the top, you can see just how the metal was folded to turn it into a PC case.

Put your hands in the air and make some noise -- that's what I think the modder for this Thermaltake case is trying to say.

Found at the Asus booth, this case is designed to be a powerful living room piece.

If you could build scary-looking PC cases that would freak you out at night, you'd probably build this.

An open-air case that will collect a heck load of dust. It's impressive looking, though.
