Scratch Build Case Club - Page 94

post #931 of 1371
Always add a little more when sizing for some things, like a radiator, just incase you decide to change to make sure another could fit. that's what I learnt from scratch building.

I think the PSU position is going to give you problems unless you duct it to exhaust its "hot" air seperately - away from any air intakes

Hi,

I planning to do a original one-off , a hard thing to do in this day and age since almost everything possible has bin done already.
I'm in the process of converting my attic to a man cave / pc room. I was thinking about doing a desk build, but with the masonry on
that piece of wall being totally crooked I needed a solution to get the wall straight before putting a desk against it. I thought about mounting wooden plates on the wall when it hit me I could mount the plates far enough from the wall thus creating a deep enough space to integrate my new build in the wall itself. I have seen wall mounted rigs before ,but an enthousiast build in a wall itself ?
I'm planning for the radiators (black) an pump reservoir combo (blue) to stay in the wall. While the box containing the mobo (gray) to be detachable using a no spill quick release fitting option.

Any advice or idea's ? I'm planning on using mostly acrylic for the mobo box.

well... if you play it well, and optimise radiator & GPU positions etc, you should be able to put your "fake-but-straight" wall about 15cm out... which is about the space need for a decent layer of rockwool anyways smile.gif

And if you do some smart inwall/underfloor ducting you might even be able to have outside air going through the rads & parts in the winter and inside air in the summer --- some flaps/valves to be able to choose the airsource needed .. unless you actually build an A/C in the space between the wall and the chimey smile.gif

I will be starting the case construction this evening for this project
Victorian_Desktop_01.jpg

That's a slightly rough rendering, but I have some cast iron screen corners, and a cast iron grate (images of both used in sketchup), that I'll be using on an all mahogany case. Will have a 200mm radiator in thef ront; should be fun.

You could put all of your hardware between 2 studs (you should use at least 2x8s to give you room enough) with radiators mounted on the actual stud on the other side. Put plexiglass over where the hardware would be.

kind of like this...



You could put a piece of strapping (1x3) like a feet above the motherboard and below so that could can mount the acrylic motherboard tray on it and pass wires under it without seeing how it is actually mounted.

Could be a great option, I was planning it like this. but that may change from now till start of the build. I'll try to make a build log when I start of .
On a separate tread.



I plan to ask my brother to make a rendering. He studied digital arts and entertainment , so piece of cake or him biggrin.gif
