Conclusion and Thoughts

There wasn't much of a need to go into the specifications of the hardware used; they were all mine.  For consumers, however, they can visit the KickButtComputers website and configure a system that caters to their needs.  There are many themes to choose from, and since they all look so fantastic, you'll get a headache from deciding one over another. 

When I invited my friends into my room and showed them the case, their eyes literally popped open.  The first thing they said was:  "Holy Sh..!"  One of my roommates even offered to buy it from me right then and there, without even asking what's inside the gut of the system.  He just loved it.  I had to peel him away from the case and tell him that it is going to be for an emulator system so we can all play games on it.  He agreed and let go.  Honestly, I am not making it up.  They really loved the case.  I REALLY loved the case.  KickButtComputers even goes out of the way and water jet cut "InsaneTek" on one of the metal sheets!  How can I complain about that?

For the gamers, or even non-gamers, who are looking to make a purchase of a new system, please keep in mind what KickButtComputers has to offer.  Why compute in a regular average box when you can look cool in front of all your friends?  Pictures really do no justice for the sexiness of the mods.  The money you spend on a system like this is worthwhile.  I thought it was too exotic at first, but after seeing it in person, I'm not letting this go.


  • Great level of detailed work
  • Water jet cutting prevents metal cuts
  • Beautiful and gorgeous
  • System is customizable through online purchase


  • Probably price since there is so much work put into it

We would like to thank KickButtComputers for providing us the sample.  If you have any questions or comments, feel free to hit us up in the forums. You can also check out more of our latest reviews on the front page


One of the things I forgot to mention is that all the metallic sheets are genuine aluminum diamond plates, 1/16" in thickness.  After the process of water jet cutting, the edges are deburred and polished by hand to eliminate sharp edges.  When I stepped back and took a look at the price tag, my first reaction was that it is a little on the expensive side, considering a nice looking gaming system can be built with less than $1,000.  What I did not factor into the cost was the tooling and craftsmanship and materials.  Honestly now, who would really own a water jet cutting machine at home?
