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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
