What the?.. PC Chassis with an integrated display?!

Yep.. Dash OPS-1000 CPU from a phone system. It also went under the name Picazo VS1. The amber CRT was a factory option.

I added this nice little AT tower to my collection recently - needed some restoration but came up pretty well. The power button jams if you don't hit it dead center but that just seems to be a design flaw, it's not worn at all.

Fancy finding a full 3-digit MHz display. I don't think I've come across a 3-digit MHz display naturally on a case before. Perhaps it originally was for a P200 or a K6? Anyone know what was the latest CPU which fairly commonly contained a case with a MHz display? Seems like after socket 7 the MB's turbo header was no more.

My NEWEST 486 build.
I found this case on ebay. It looks new and never used.
It's an AT case from the 1990's by a company called "Techmedia".
I read they use to design their own stuff.
This is the best AT case I have ever had. It is made of thick steel construction.
I am not kidding. The side panels feel like they weight about 5lbs. each.
The front is made of thick plastic too. The entire front panel pops off easily. just like a lian li case.
The frame is made of thick steal.
The back has allot of holes for connectors.
I only wish it had better ventilation and holes for fans.
Other than that it is a really nice case from the early 1990's.
Works great with a 386/486 motherboard.
And it has a nice thick coat of paint. NOT a cheap case.
