And this is what you may want to invest in. I don't know if the parts I put together at the top are EXACT but hopefully it's close. As for your GPU I'd upgrade if you can afford it to something with at least 8GB of VRAM. Use your GPU as long as you can. I'd upgrade the PSU. And I put it in a case that's nice to build in.

Thanks for the tip on the button. I did find something to solve that issue. We may have to use 92mm fans. 2x 120mm at the bottom won't fit for what we're buildling, and there is no GPU because Ryzen 3 2200 will be enough to stream movies :)

yes as shown in the photo the bottom cutout is for the SF600 (picked up new for $80CAD) and we'll make two more with dust filters at the bottom. then I'll mount the HDD on the side next to the mobo.

Thanks Imp

could someone please help me with airflow in this case? should I put 2x 120mm fans at the bottom for intake and one at the back for exhaust? i'm unsure what to do for airflow purposes

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Wood Case Build"

that much i do know. but a custom case i know i can do what i want. so if maybe put two 120mm at the bottom for intake and a 120 at the back would that work as well?

More than a fair response, thanks Tets. I want to showcase the glory lol I want to do a water build, and make it pop in my office which is red/black (can always be painted; not the point) and I want to either incorporate my server currently resting in a Fractal R5. Only reason I say threadripper is because i do photo editing for my wife, music editing for myself, and gaming when I have the time.

You're always a lifesaver man. I do like the usb dock. IT'd have to be >1" thick.

However would I need a splitter for anything? And i'm watching the power button video now

Could I purchase standoffs for the mobo to sit OFF the wood in this case? I'm unsure how to lay the storage out in here. I'm also unsure what to do for a power button or USB ports? Buy an old case and part it out?

An SF PSU would be great but where do I put a power button? This is what we have drafted for a case. I'd be building in the lighter tone. The dark tone wood is only an inch thick. Maybe room for a power button.
