I really needed to add a few more picture of the last steps of the build.
Here is the final lay out of the PS and MB.
You can see in the second to last picture there is quite a bit a space behind the power supply to suck air from up above.
I really wanted the tower in there I even went...
Thanks grg3 I saw a lamp on Lumberjocks and just had to make it into a computer case.
Here's a picture of the lamp and my try at copying his style.
UtterDisbelief I started this out with the idea of the tower fan light as part of the build but it didn't center the space and just took...
This should finish it up for now.
Well I've put it together and it still needs a couple a coats of finish I will be switching out mother boards after the new wears off.
Still needs a back door but it's up against the wall so?
I put oak ply wood on one side and a window on the other...
Well I'm back at it.
Why do I build things with so many parts.
Every one of those top boards had to be sanded on all sides, I'm going back to ply wood. lol
So got the top on and am trying out two maybe three different sides.
When I went to put in the last slat it needed to be...
Well it's time for an up date.
Monday I cut out and glued up the back or front.
The back is oak and walnut.
I wanted a nice back so I could have it showing at times instead of the door, which I have at this time no idea how it will be done. lol
Spent all day Tuesday sawing and sanding...
Here is the finished build, I will leave the rest of the post intact.
Been trying for months to come up with a design for a wood case that is a little different.
I think I may have figured it out.
It will be a mix of two different furniture pictures I have found.
I just love...
I love the idea and am in the planing stage to build a wood case and adding slides would be cool .
Just a thought but water cooling will make it hard to slide it in and out.
Air cooling would be just unplug the fan and slide it out.
Water cooling just isn't going to be as easy to slide in...
Very nicely done.:clap:
I really like the custom aluminum panel from The Laser Hive, :thumbup:
and the Corsair grommets really nice way to hide the cables:thumbup::thumbup:
and give you something to mount other parts to.:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
Something to really be proud of and will...
Very nicely done.:clap:
I love your attention to detail.
The two tone is just out standing.:shock:
As you said earlier, their not that expensive to build
but I did notice you must have sold your shoes to buy parts cause I don't think there's one shot with you with your shoes on. :lol:
I'm just enjoying reading this.
The closest I can come the this was the fun my son and I would have at the Commodore 64 club in Huntsville Al. back 20 years ago when I was first getting in to computers.
It's just great to read what all your getting into so early in life.
Man I just wonder...
