“Eismaschine II”: really frosty

Here, I joyfully present you the most impressive and meaningful build of mine, ever- and I didn´t do it alone-  I was teaming with my step-daughter Lia, aged 9, for a workover of her Starter- PC, she was getting in 2014- not yet a project. With new software demands, a new system was needed, and when building the Eismaschine, my concrete project, Lia once said, she´d love to have an Eismaschine for herself- but with real ice..so the idea was born.

“Maker Theater”: an ITX HTPC

With, the recent project “Maker Theater”, which shall be an ITX Home theater- PC, I follow a certain vision- the romantic atmosphere, of visiting a classical movie theater of the 50ies, with the red letters on white billboards, popcorn, rows of folding seats- and somebody, your heart beats for. To realize this, I will use 1:87 scale model kits, that are of a nicely detailedly resolution and of the right size for that purpose, at all.

“Eismaschine” – a concrete vision

In spring 2016, I was looking for a concept, to try something new in PC building- with research, it has shown that almost every material and style already was part of the now- only concrete I haven´t found. With having some experience because of my job, I knew, what in general was to be done. So first of all, I wanted to have a build in the end, that offers a highly comfortable accessibility in the first, I wanted a combination of wood, and I wanted to have a nice view on all parts.

“Battlecase”: an independent cooling loop “outside the box”

Here is the gallery for my second build:

Within two months and roughly 200 hours, from a Corsair Vengeance C70 Case, I built this cooling solution: The sled on top is all self-made, with exception of the two carrying parts below the radiator, which have been water-cut. My idea for this rig is to show, how not-fitting-to-the-case parts

can be used anyway, with going along with the given theme of the case itself.

“Time Folder”- the Internet beginnings

The first build of mine, that ever has been showed on the Internet, was if one wants to say so, more than ambitious. I tried out at least anything in this case, what appeared useful to me, these days. Even with the Phanteks Enthoo Primo case offering mounting options and space by the bucketload, I already was believing, that radiators best suffer from direct room-air, without blowing the warmed into the case. Even more important I told to be making the controlling units more accessible and visible at all.
