Idea: Gaming hardware brands but instead of "Vengeance", "Fury", "Hyper-X", "TUF", "Crosshair", "Dark Hero" etc etc, they're called things like "Rapscallion", "Roughian", "Scallywag", "Miscreant", "Brute" etc etc

Got a sick gaming rig mate, it's got an Asus Scallywag Pro VII with 32GB of Bloody Fisticuffs memory

@Shrigglepuss check out my new rig, I shoved an MSI Belligerent 9090 in there

@Shrigglepuss Tbh I'd trust a device named "rapscallion" or "scallywag" more than "savage" or "crosshair" or whatever

@Shrigglepuss@godforsaken.website I keep waiting for there to be a cozy wood cabin looking PC parts line. Wood grain, brass accents, maybe the odd bits of satin black plastic. A scant few amber LEDs.

@GreatJoe yeah this could work! The way most folk seem to build their PCs would be a big ol fire hazard with that wood in there though haha

@Shrigglepuss@godforsaken.website Feel free to look up the Volta V. Really, all you need is proper ventilation and you're mercifully free of fires.

@GreatJoe Super weird how they fit the motherboard in there, guess it could be interesting on a desk where it's viewed from behind too though

@GreatJoe I'm struggling to figure out how that graphics card is secured in too!

@Shrigglepuss@godforsaken.website It's definitely a weird layout, and I don't have the faintest idea how it's secured. You'd think they'd go for something at least a bit closer to the ITX standard, or ITX-adjacent like Thermaltake's The Tower. Still, the advent of PCI-E risers means you can theoretically put a graphics card anywhere.

@GreatJoe yeah, and that's fine using a riser like that, it works! But like how is its back plate securing it on into to wood cos that's a lot of weight! it looks a bit misaligned in one of the photos too... If I was designing it I'd go for a fully metal powder coated back panel personally, and at that price with the motherboard I/O cut into it too
