[Scratch] [Build Log] Wireless Wall

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Welcome.

To start off with, this is not a new machine build. The hardware is circa 2011, but was high-end in it's day. I have two objectives here: 1. Build a case that I like, and 2. Get the community's opinion on such a case design. At first this may be like other cases you all have seen before; at the basic core design it is just a wall mounted case. However, I have a plan in my head to do something that I've never seen, I assume because no one would want to take the risk with thier $K's of new hardware. The build progress will be slow and take quite a long time with updates further apart than most. No spoilers will be given apart from the name of this thread. (hint: "wireless" does not mean WiFi...)

For now, enjoy these images:

Not much to look at now but stained wood, but good job on that.
Curious what this build is.

New parts arrived for the build. I took some sub-par photos of them with the best camera I own: my cell phone.




Before anyone asks, yes there is a socket 775 board in the second photo. Why is it there? What purpose does it serve? I'm not telling yet. Once I get rolling on the build/modification/assembly phase, y'all will have to follow the thread to find out.

I know I said I wouldn't give away any spoilers in the first post; but I've spent so much time in Sketchup waiting on parts to arrive that I now feel obligated to share. Here is the model of the build that I have so far. Everything in the model except the motherboard pcb and the graphics card pcb was modeled by me. Everything I modeled is size/scale accurate down to the millimeter as I measured it and I made the texture images that were used on the fan controller, power supply, and the wood base. I feel like the wood base is small enough to be compact for the components without being crunched for space. I can't make the wood base any larger, however if someone has a compelling reason as to why it should be smaller, I'd appreciate the input.


Seriously this time, no more spoilers unless it's updates to the Sketchup model.





I've also ran into a bit of a roadblock. Since my current power supply is dying, I was forced to buy a new one. I was going to modify the original power supply, however I won't be doing that with the new power supply because I don't want to ruin the 10 year warranty. Currently, I'm still trying to decide on how to deal with this aesthetic problem.

Always up for a scratch build. Lets see where this goes.
