Description

Inspired by Luke’s build I decided to build my very own Fallout 4 nuke stream pc.

I 3d printed 2 cylinders and 2 motherboard trays on a taz-2. One cylinder was made of ABS and the other was PLA. The ABS did not come out was well as I had hoped. Several layers did not adhere properly and split in the 3d printing process. The PLA cylinder came out well except for some slight warping around the bottom. I then printed out two different trays to see which would work better. I decided on the second because it held the board a bit better and would help with directing some of the air flow.

GTX 960 -Going to be added later when I get the pcie ribbon cable from new egg….it has been 2 weeks >:(

The paint job was supposed to look post apocalyptic, where it would look hastily painted with lots of over spray and other mistakes. The ABS cylinder paint job look fits that look better than the PLA.

I soldered the button that once played the sound effect to a old power on/off cable so it would act as the primary power button. After a wheel chair incident it was left broken. I’m currently working on a way to fix it, but for now I just have to use another button to start and shut off the computer.

Nicely done! Yours doesn't have bolts sticking out the sides of it like Luke's. I don't understand why he didn't grind those things off.....

I do recommend you contact Luke Lafreniere and show him your build

I love samsung and pretty much everything they make, but can you say that this UW 1080p is worth the extra 200-300 more than other brands like LG, Dell or Asus that offer pretty much the same product but at a reduced price?

Awesome build! What are the temperature readings under load?

  • 36 months ago

~60°Celsius

I’ve got a 140mm for intake and a 120 for exhaust. They work well to keep sufficient airflow for the intell stock cooler at the scarifies of noise output. This sucker gets up 40dbs under load!

Very nice! Just did a Fallout themed build myself. Sitting here scratching my head as to how you made it all fit.

  • 36 months ago
  • 1 point

Made the computer in a CAD program and accounted for cable sizes and proper fluid dynamics to make sure there would be sufficient air flow throughout the case.

Id love to see some more pics of your build, when Luke built that one it drove me absolutely insane with how he did ... well pretty much everything, but mostly supergluing and no measuring and just the whole thing needed to be rethought before it was implemented.

Agree! Those holes he made for USB and power? argh

  • 36 months ago

Also the fact that (like a TON of the things that channel does) they result to glue and duct tape and spit and whatnot when there are actual VALID products to use, case in point gluing those USB ports/extension cables in place when they make USB plates with actual mount screws for that VERY thing. Dont get me wrong, I love that channel and a lot of what they do, but some of it is just WRONG!

Wrong and paintful to see! I think when Linus glittered the PSU of his XMas Build i scratched and bit myself bloody at the same time... : /

In one of the pictures you can see that I have mine mounted on a tray that can be removed so I can work on it out side of the case. Still refunding the backside and I/O hope to finish it soon though.

pretty dope, sad that it won't run fallout to the max though

Also, I would hugely recommend a better PSU

That PSU should be fine

1) he changed it 2) still a tier 3 PSU in a tight space and likely high heat, I personally wouldn't use it

I saw something similar on LTT. This is a awesome build anyways. I always wanted to do a build inside of a custom case but I dont have the patience nor the patience ( I know I said that twice) to make one lol

  • 36 months ago

For a senior project this did test my patience, and for being my first custom pc(hopefully me last)I think I did a good job with the limited experience I had. I would recommend doing a custom pc, because it teaches you a lot of custom design and engineering and plus it is a lot of fun if not stressful. :)

You red my mind on the fan placement, see if you can add a small fan on the bottom, perhaps a 80mm

  • 36 months ago

I managed to fit a 140mm fan in the bottom. :)

Wow, this looks way better than Luke's (salt to the earth)

I love the way you made the fan on top oriented, and even though you custom made the case it looks and seems to work a lot better!! The paint job matches the style exactly, and looks really well done. My only question is why use 960 instead of 970? I believe Asus offers a smaller card in 970 fashion. I bet the base of this one works too...

  • 36 months ago

I would have liked to put a 970 in, but I had a small budget for this build. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

you should invert those case fans since hot air rises it would be easier and less noise possibly.

  • 34 months ago

The fans do work with convection. The bottom fan is intake and the top exhausts.

Under load the cpu stays around ~55°C with stock intel cooler.

This will most probably make it to the most rated builds. It's more exciting than the 15k $ build. Good luck
