The Most INSANE comp ever....

Discussion in 'Project Logs' started by markkleb, Jul 2, 2006.

    I couldnt sleep cause I was thinking about a new comp. Two of the ideas were 100% hidden wiring (even the 24 pin power connector that plugs in to the backside of the mobo.


    and a custom built PS with 2 AC cooling 8 fans in the end blowing through with the wires exiting on the side that no one sees.

    I want to build a custom frame and case that uses my the tube design that cools the video card('s) and put the HDD in it as well.

    I want it to be smaller so should I use a Micro Mobo or ATX? And my air cooling stuff seems to run just about as cool as H2O so it will probably be air cooled.

    SO...

    do you think its worth it?
    and have any ideas?:rockout:

    It's certainly worth it! That custom power supply is going to be amazing, good luck modding it (I myself am scared of the warning labels DO NOT OPEN POWER SUPPLY :p.). A custom frame and case, eh? That's not my area of expertise, but I'm sure you can build one. I doubt you can fit a good RAID array in that tube cooler though. Unless you feel like soldering SATA connectors, I think you might want to use the IDE cables I sold you. I'll MSPaint you my basic ideas for that case later. Air cooled is good, but make sure you have a good hiding place for that CPU fan wire! Either that or get a big enough CPU cooler and hide the wire under it ;). And yes, definitely go ATX, your mods seem to need that space :D.

    I got a crazy idea:
    [​IMG]

    I can't write in paint, doesn't know why, all the fans are 80mm, the cpu is passive cooling, and the psu is where the hdd should be, like artic cooling cases, it has BTX format

    thanks guys, whats more important?

    1-a comp that looks amazing(cool lights 1 VideoCard)
    2-a comp that runs amazing (crazy high benches SLI or Crossfire)

    I have always thought 90% of the people wont use SLI or dual cores, so would they rather see a comp like the one they have (just fixed up)

    or do people like seeing Dream Systems?

    i think a bit of both, the 2X 7600gs are a good deal, and if the computer has good looks, even better

    I say that you should definitely put awesome case mod before extreme performance. For this kind of mod, you should put awesome looks first. Extreme performance comes as an added bonux :D.

    No, I am not buying you a case or H20. lol

    I am building a case. And the laptop HDDs are 7200 rpm 8mb buffers and sata. They take a LOT less power, use a lot less space and create a lot less heat.

    i can't design very well in paint, but what do you think of my case?
     
  24. markkleb Guest

    The only prob I see is it uses the hot air from the PS in the case.

    And the more fans the louder it will be.

    I was thinking about putting the fans in the middle of the tubes (much quieter.)

    Mark, I'd like to see you build a comp in a clear case, and see how well you could hide tha cables in that.
