Aaah man, this was a tough job, my cousin was a long time pc gamer and ever since i was little we shared the passion together (he was older than me by around 14 years so he berated me with his good temper) especially from mid to late 90's early 2000, sadly he died 8 years ago and both me and my brother always try to bring some good news to my aunt, now the only survivor of her family.
I asked her if she wanted to give me to me his old PC so that i could create something that would cherish the memory of her son, little did i knew that the PC was a perfect fit for a card that i wanted to get for a while now, but obviously i couldn't stop at the hardware, i had to up my case modding shenanigans quite a bit to create something classy and that was both usable and pleasant to look at.
I had to use 3d printing in a bunch of places, like on the front where i wanted an intake fan, after cutting the hole i was left with around 5cm of space between the metal skeleton of the case and the plastic front, so i created a tunnel to both cover the space and redirect air, same thing with the filter\cover.
All in all i can't complain about the visual result, the colors are inline with a 3dfxsque color pattern, i was also able to print something functional for that insanely heavy voodoo5 which really required a strong anti sag holder and the hardware:

It's just perfect for the GPU, and i was also able to add an aureal vortex 2 that was previously in the willamette system in my sign.
