The wood was sourced from a local hardwood store.
I went here:
House of Hardwood in Santa Monica
I'm open to it. I have a friend who is interested in commissioning one and that will be my version 2 build.
ooo i should add that to the description. But it's 7" wide, 10" tall, and 14" long.
Interesting thoughts gogo89. I did love that InWin plywood+glass case from computer 2017. that curved plywood was just soo sexy. :D
After working with wood for this case, I can kind of see why it doesn't happen. there's a lot of labor in cutting, staining and sanding/finishing the wood... and not to mention the bending that InWin showed off... theres just a lot of handwork involved.
I imagine with the steel panels, you can just run them through the CNC machines that they use for all of their cases.
I agree. Right now there is 7.5mm (0.3") high rubber feet and yes, it is rather thin. On the next revision, I would consider getting closer to half an inch of clearance at the bottom. thank you for noticing.
the interior wood pieces (motherboard tray, fan bracket, and PSU hangers) are screwed together and function as one piece in my mind. One of the last pictures shows this center spine separate from the exterior shell.
the exterior wood panels are all wooden pegs and holes (none of them are glued, soo I can disassemble the exterior if I want to).
Then there's there thumb screws and their mounts embedded into the wood for the glass.
LOL I have those same feelings too about the bottom cutouts being over-sized but I could not find the correct diameter hole drill kit for it haha. I guess I should have under-sized if anything... those bottom cutouts, being soo big, were extremely difficult to drill!!
Thanks, thats what I was going after.
... and you still owe me 9 more upvotes, just an FYI. :D
I bought a power extension cable from the NCASE M1 from SFFlab.com. I guess that case routes the PSU to the back also.
I think this was the last part I needed when I built my case and was waiting on it for 1 week, haha.
I googled your username and found your business, interesting. Youve been doing it since 2016, how is your business doing? are you doing it full time or is this a side hustle for you?
Ohh thanks, I did not realize i got featured until you said it and realized that I received a lot more traffic today. haha.
Ceraphim, there is 1/2 inch between the glass and the GPU.
I've love to, buut I dont know how many people would actually buy them... but posting it on here and reading the comments is definitely giving me some encouragement about selling them.
LOL well it is a coffee lake build and part table... haha
Hi Walibo1, I have not considered that idea... But people are telling me I should have considered that since my tempered glass was soo expensive. It is a good idea and the outcome would have been totally different. Maybe I need to source glass panels from somewhere cheaper too. thank you for your suggestion.
Thanks Fyremoon 65, I actually never thought too much about the case being placed horizontally except for taking these photos. I did feel like a piece of furniture when I was making it. With my table, I feel like it may actually look like it goes "too well" with my furniture. haha.
I didnt want to ruin the clean walnut box look from the front.
You're right. The exhaust side of the PSU does face downwards towards my two 120mm fans. I was more concerned about which way the cables were coming out of the PSU. I will consider rotating the PSU exhaust up and out on the next one, thank you.
I can....... but it won't be cheap. hahaa.
It gets pretty toasty. I updated the post to show the GPU/CPU temps i get under load.
OVERWATCH @ 4K/EPIC Settings:
GPU gets to about 85 degrees.
CPU gets to about 62 degrees.
Thanks, part of me does want to find a way to bring the cost down and mass produce these. Im considering making a version 2 and I will see how I feel about it afterwards. I've always wanted to make my own products... maybe one day.
I used Revit by Autodesk. Its more for architectural modeling but I'm comfortable with that program soo I did it there. Even though I did draft up the drawings for this build, most of this was hand measuring and figuring it out standing next to the saw. hahaa, Ideally I would find access to a laser cutter and just print my measurements from my model.
what sort of things have you been making or thinking about making?
LOLOL yaa the color scheme would have worked out great for this build. I did buy a Noctua L12S but i was having some issue mounting it because of the RAM? I forget why exactly but i couldn't mount it.
the 120mm fans are from my old DEEPCOOL captain 240EX White AIO that leaked.
