The Thaumaturge has one of the coolest PC builds we’ve ever seen

Don't scream.

We love a cool PC case, and of all of the ones we’ve seen to date, it’s pretty hard to top the one built to celebrate the launch of The Thaumaturge. The build itself is pretty horrifying, depicting a character called Bukavac who’s hunched over concealing the PC underneath its terrifying form. If you’re a horror fan, this is probably the kind of build you’d love, but we’d be a little worried about it gaining sentience and coming for us while we were sleeping.

The Thaumaturge is a new RPG where the paranormal and normal exist side-by-side, and special human beings can communicate with them and get help from them too. It’s been getting pretty good reviews on Steam, and the concept is cool. It looks a bit like something like Disco Elysium, but with more combat, and a fair few more monsters. However, as good as the game looks, we’re talking about the build made in honour of it.

This unique build was put together with 11 bit studios, the developers behind The Thaumaturge, and AMD. The specs aren’t bad either, with an AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D CPU, an AMD Radeon 7900 XTX GPU, a 1TB WD_Black SN850X SSD, and 32GB of RAM. It’s got a lot of cooling in it too, which is almost definitely essential given the way the PC is built. That’s plenty of power, which isn’t a must in a build that’s got a focus on the visual style, but it is definitely a nice bonus.

It’s massive

The biggest issue with the build is that it looks a fair bit larger than most people would have room for. We’re not really sure people would be able to put this under a desk, so it’s only going to fit into setups where there’s notable space on either side of a desk. It’s probably worth moving stuff around for though. You can actually win this as well if you feel like trying to do so. The competition ends on March 19, but the aim is just to create your own Salutor that’d fit in with The Thaumaturge, and then submit it via a link on the website.

It’s a chance to win a nice PC, both in terms of visuals and raw power, so if you’ve been hoping for an upgrade, there’s really no harm in going for it. We’ll simply stick with enjoying the visual side of this thing from the safety of a computer screen though.
