One is never too old for RGB but you made something really unique and I love it. Well done.
well yes it did take too much time...but i am happy with the result
Great build I like it and the ideas it embraces. RGB gets over done. I feel the same way about tatoos ...pretty cool until EVERYBODY has one. However I agree with some of the other comments. Its an inclusive community. There is more than one way to skin a cat....most of us just are not too imaginative or daring. Being original is great but by definition not everyone can achieve it. So be kind.
I admit that boxy case doesnt appeal to me much but in the right location (like your shelf) its ideal. RBG is not necessary at all and a quiet PC is a very very important design goal. Well done.
Wow thank you!
Well done looks great ..people obviously like the zen aesthetic..
Last till the end! That sounds a bit bleak. The end of what?
You build the ultimate bang for buck pc! Well done.
looks good ...you could cable combs to tidy up the white cables
Thanks..I had orginally aimed for a bit more precision but it turned out well in the end.
If it catches fire I'll tell you. It's got a water loop...so the pipes will melt and the water will extinguish the flames.
I was aiming for a bit more precision but without more time, tools and materials I embraced a slightly organic shape which worked. It was a crazy amount of time...so couldn't be a commercial thing. Perhaps you can make one? Inwin was going to make a wooden case that looked interesting..Google "inwin wood case"
Thank you....hmmmmn what next?
Thanks. I had never bent tube before and the first ones were rubbish (I pretty much did every tube at least twice) and in the end they had just the right amount of wonkiness.
I saw this a while back and meant to comment. Usually when i say "hey kids...check this out" the are not interested. This build had me and my boys spellbound. Its brilliantly conceived and executed. Does it get used?
I meant to comment earlier. You have done such a brilliant job. I think the cables are the best I have ever seen. If a cable can be joyous then this is the one..and it contrasts so well with the rest of the build. Well done.
After your comment I asked the kids if they learnt anything...there were a few smart Alec responses but essentially they said "no"!..oh well it's done now:)
Sounds good.. I'm sure you'll do a great job.
I see what you did there!
Yes I like your choices...and that case. This build uses same case and I love it
Thanks. There were actually a couple of other software steps to produce the 2d drawings (tinkercad and inkscape). I emailed drawings files to a company here in UK and they posted the cut plywood back. I'm sure similar services exist in other countries.
Pleased you like it.. thanks.
I haven't tested extensively it will get hotter..but water-cooling reduces temps significantly. Maybe you need to improve airflow in your case. 81 is toasty but still within acceptable limits.
If you don't have any particular high end use case such as video editing and don't care about getting every last frame ...the 2600 is widely considered a great value overclockable all-rounder.
However if you intend to use the stock cooler you might consider the 2600x it has a better cooler.
Depends what you mean by value.. functionally its a moderately powerful compact pc. Water-cooling is hard to justify financially and in terms of hours well...for me it was fun project it's about the atheistic and challenge and it is valuable!
Maybe its the start of something? Pleased you like it!
im sure most dont know what we are talking about!
You really must have wanted to have a quiet PC!! I take your point on the soft tubing it looks great. I also appreciate your thrifty approach too many builds are a bit extravagant IMO. I confess I like the warmth of the final shot with a bit of colour. Whole thing is pretty awesome well done!
Btw I admired your rage PC...only a proper modder trashes something on purpose!
thank you.. i am
Yep it's all (cough) intentional :)
True:).... But your 19 build's that's impressive!
Not doubt there are some things there others can relate to. Appreciate your comment thank you
Thanks for that!
Your comment made me smile!
You are kind thanks!
Truely the ply shroud doesnt fit like a glove and my tube bending skills are noob level and the cables...well it's just not that kind of precision build. Net result is pleasing...
Thanks it was a fun project. The ideas are borrowed...google "wooden inwin 301 computex"" (flip that case and add water). I also really liked this case...
To be honest it was a lot of work upfront in CAD and then lots of cutting, trimming and filing to fix all the little design errors. It looks good but not exactly robust. I appreciate now how much work must go into a really good and versatile case design. Metal has lots of advantages. Whilst I dont regret it at all I think a good approach might be to mod or clad a steel case.
thank you...I really liked the wood veneer Shift case you made!
fantastic build well done!
