William “Cable Guy” Schmidt is in the #YIDIY spotlight this week. He is a bit of a renaissance man with a number of seemingly disparate interests. This also makes him a geek’s “geek” who has seamlessly incorporated his Midwest background and his significant-other with his talent and passion for modding PCs. This past February, he won the mod contest at PDXLAN 31 against some impressive competition with his Radiation King Radio.

This rig is built specifically to muscle through today’s most demanding games by pairing Intel’s 10-core i9-7900X CPU with a graphics devouring GTX 1080 Ti SLI setup. And it’s all elusively tucked away within a distinguished wood cabinet custom built by PC designer Jeffrey Stephenson.
