Description

This was a rebuild/ case mod for a client who wanted something more modern and manageable as their side rig. The original PC had no graphics card, an oversized PSU and was in a shiny black msi tower that was pretty dated and full of dust. That said... the i7, mobo and ram still had a lot of life left to give. You can see the full project here: https://youtu.be/9zWaq4wkFKM

I used a new case but replaced the ugly front panel with solid oak I cut, routed and finished off with tung oil.

The inside got surgery as well: Custom Graphics card mount for bigger cards on a riser Custom AIO mount new sfx size PSU mount moved the SSD mount and yes... RGB control on the back All the metal work got covered in black bed liner.

Client is happy with the form and function of the final product. I think it's a great way to resurrect a good old PC and make the most of it.

*Cant be run vertical or horizontally without a stand.

As always any questions just ask! Thanks PCPP people.

Impressive build but I would worry how flammable that could get. Overclocking -> house fire :o

Looks great! At first glance I thought it was going to be built into a desk drawer that could be pulled out for use.
