Spencer Kern isn’t your average computer-builder. When he set out to build a Minecraft-themed PC, he went all-out.

Kern’s computer is a mini-ITX build, but instead of repurposing a square PC case like the Corsair 250D, Kern set out to make one himself using acrylic sheets. He modeled it after a piece of Redstone, an ore in Minecraft used for crafting certain items.

Because Kern was so keen on making the absolute best Minecraft playing machine, instead of squeezing in cabling that would be too large for the case, he custom-wired and -sleeved cables for the perfect fit.

This kind of customization is very time-consuming and requires a lot of patience, but Kern didn’t stop there. He wanted to make sure that his accessories also got the Minecraft treatment. He custom-designed an Xbox One controller and even had custom keys printed for his keyboard.

We have a feeling that hardcore Minecraft fans will be knocking on his door for a custom built PC of their own.
