[Build Log] Project Prometheus - Wind tunnel cooled PC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all. This is my first computer case designing and building project and a bit out of standard cooling solutions applied for PCs. Goal of this project is to at end have time resistant cooling solution that would allow energy efficient and cat resistant OCing in years to come. And trying to avoid use of water at this moment, to have it entirely done by air.

As wind tunnel used for cooling is a rare thing to found around, learning all this stuff and contemplating what could all go wrong takes lots of time and make me constantly modify design, its a going on process and Im hoping when flaws (except it size and possible Impracticality tongue.gif ) are noticed discussion here will help me fix it before I fry something properly smile.gif

This will be almost entirely DIY from scrap, trash, wood, furniture, metal, plastic remodeling, casting and shaping it project.
Desire is to not spend to much money on this so what will be shows will be more or less some attempt to intelligently recycle trash and use the cheapest stuff available and to get A grade final product that dont look like is made from trash tongue.gif

Dominant material of choice will be wood as I have lots of that lying around and is easier for me to work with it than steel or other metals.

As I have no need to move it anywhere, nor do I have to much furniture in first place, It can be as large as long it fit into room and can be heavy as much as possible because of sound and noise reduction. Exactly opposite of what is usually desired from PC case design.
This will be painfully slow project and realistic goal would be to have it finished by end of summer, worst case fall.

Il open thread and post couple pictures of work done to this moment, not much but its rolling, and will hopefully soon update and expand description and details of this project.


UNDER CONSTRUCTION!
