Hi everybody,

 

The building is about transforming a conventional computer. My goal is to make the brittle metal, the boring plastic and the living wood working together. To make the computer the decoration of a room, not just a box under the desk. Of course I'll use liquid cooling for the look and quiet.
 

SPECS


Case: Cooler Master H100

PSU: Cooler Master MWE Gold 650 V2 Full Modular
Motherboard: ASUS Rog Strix Z490i Gaming 
CPU: Intel I3 10100
GPU: ASUS ROG STRIX GTX Geforce 1660 TI 6GB

Memory: Geil EVO X II 3600 DDR4
Storage: WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD 500GB
CPU Cooler: AlphaCool XPX 1U

GPU Cooler : AlphaCool NexXxos 
Ovangkol wood (mahagoni)

Weight: 14,5 kg


The stock Cooler Master H100 "Baby" case is the base of the build but since the dimensions of the GPU outgrown the case I have to mod it too by adding 100mm to it.
I build the 280 radiator to the lower wooden frame and replace one of the fans with the PSU which fan will cool the radiator too. I place the H100 case on top of this.
I combine these two parts with 2 special clamps.
The liquid cooling will be on one circuit, the pump and tank combination will be on the lower wooden frame.
The side and top of the case will be decorated with wooden inserts.

 

Thank you to all of my sponsors for the support!

The process of expanding the house.
100 mm extension with aluminum profiles.
Bottom plate replacement 3 mm thick aluminum plate.
I have to build a stiffer structure because of the sandwich structure.
I clamp the 3 units with clamps on the bottom plate of the housing.

The power supply has arrived from the Cooler Master.
The lower unit was done with more professional tools in a carpenters workshop of a friend of mine.
I planned to build the radiator at the bottom of the wooden frame, with the PSU and a Cooler Master RGB fan on top.
I have designed an inner edge on the radiator frame so that the power supply does not sit on the radiator, as the housing is placed on the power supply and I tightened it with a special clamp.

I placed a stainless steel support frame under the PSU.

Hi everybody,


Structurally, the 3 units are completed, I clamp them together with 2 special clamps.
It is important that the units cannot move, as the hard tube system does not allow this.
That's why I decided to strap.
After a long search, I chose a pipe clamp, it is chrome plated and wide enough to definitely hold the sandwich together.
