Hello PCPartPicker community. I wanted to share this project with you all that I have been working for the last six months or so. This is a home theater gaming PC I am calling the HT Box 2.0. This projected is a successor to my first HTPC build the HT Box One that was a HTPC I build a couple of years ago inside of an Xbox one housing: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/rfdXsY The most unique part of the build is the case which I designed myself. It is made out of matte black ¼” acrylic that was cut out using a laser cutter. It took several revisions before I was able to get everything to line up perfectly but I am really happy with the results. The panels are held together using 12mm cubes that are threaded on all sides and the feet on the bottom of the case were 3d printed. The right side of the case houses the motherboard, storage and power supply and is designed for the CPU cooler to pull air from the top of the case and exhaust it through the side and back. The left side of the case holds the GPU and is elevated slightly to allow for air to be pulled from the bottom of the case and exhausted out of the left side of the case. I also 3d printed a bracket to help support the GPU and prevent it from sagging.
