Rig Spotlight: Jon Hansz' FrostByte

GeForce Garage, Rig Spotlights

Jon "PennyWise" Hansz already had the case, he just needed a concept. Having just completed a dragon-based notebook mod with Ron Lee Christianson and with the then recent unveiling of BSMod's Tessie, it made sense to continue the dragon theme.

Thus, FrostByte was born. And it is amazing. FrostByte took first at PDXLAN 29 in February and had a solid showing at the 2016 ThermalTake CaseMod Invitational Season 2.

Just like with his Yoda build, Jon added three-dimensionality with this super-detailed dragon using his homemade vacuum former, styrene and MagicSculpt.

Frosty both outside and in, with everything following the white and blue theme.

Nothing says a PennyWise mod like custom-laced cables.

Not just an accent piece, this decorative plaque is also the SSD.
