Custom Gaming PC Mod Celebrates MASH’s 50th Anniversary

Custom Gaming PC Mods allowing users to show their appreciation for their interests in pop culture, even though this show is half a century old. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of American comedy-drama MASH – often spelled as M*A*S*H – this custom PC comes equipped from scratch with the pigmentation and paraphernalia of the US Army.

As everyone knows, the best gaming PC to have is one that’s made by your own hand, but also reflects who you are and what you love. That’s why it doesn’t matter that the first episode of MASH aired on September 17, 1972, because Redditor Hawktulu takes the series right into the 21st century. Hawktulu uploaded several images from their custom system, which is themed from top to bottom with homages to the TV series.

One such aesthetic includes army green coloring on the PC case, complete with actor signatures. The interior sports an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti which has been given a custom green and brown coating. To complete the theme, they also placed a red cross on the cooler, a small jeep on the bottom, and painted the words “US Army Property” on the side of the case.

Perhaps the most ingenious thing that Hawktulu has done is to insert a Thermaltake Pacific R2 Ultra LCD display above the RAM, which keeps the memory cool and can play GIFs or display data from the gaming PC itself. -even, such as CPU temperatures. They even linked to a brief YouTube video that shows the MASH characters on the small screen just to really highlight their love for the show.

For those of you who remember MASH, 50 years seems such a long time ago, especially since it predates modern day platforms as we know them. Still, it’s a sight that obviously left an impact, even on the custom PC community. Even those who have never seen a single episode know how iconic it was, having aired for over 11 years. It was also nominated for 100 awards, winning 14 in total.

It’s quite inspiring to see PC mods of this caliber. There are clearly a lot of talented and dedicated people out there, and Hawktulu’s project is just one example.
