This Fallout fan turned a limited edition mini nuke into a tiny PC

The Fallout Collector usually focuses on highlighting his impressive collection of memorabilia for the post-nuclear RPG series, but recently he tried his hand at a PC build inside the plastic nuclear warhead that came with the Fallout Anthology Bethesda released back in 2015. The tasteful fake plastic bomb is meant to hold the DVDs that come with the anthology, but it also turns out to be roomy enough to fit some silicon and a power supply instead.

It’s a similar project to a build by Linus Tech Tips from back around the anthology’s release, but with some key differences. Luke from LTT opted for a more traditional PC build, elongating the case with a 3D printed sheath and cramming a then-top of the line i7 6700K and R9 Fury Nano into the heavily-modified mini nuke.

The Fallout Collector opted for a smaller, lower-power system which necessitated fewer modifications to the case. He rehoused a NUC, a small form factor PC by Intel with an especially compact motherboard, into the new housing. The Fallout Collector modified the insert meant to hold the games into a base to mount the motherboard, with a power supply set at the bottom of the case and holes dremeled into the sides for IO ports.
