[Build Log] OscillosC: The Unordinary PC *SOLD*

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

[FINISHED, Check Table of Content]

 

So, this is it. I am starting a build for my dad. I am going to put a miniITX system in a old Russian oscilloscope. My dad had found the oscilloscope somewhere and thought that it could be made as a computer. A cool computer. So yesterday I started destroying the inside of it. It was really a pain in the ass to get all those wires cut and screws out. Still hasn't finished though... We were thinking that we could mod the screen to look like steampunk style :)
I am not so sure about the hardware side just yet but my friend is offering me an Intel i3 2100 and some ITX mobo. I think that is enough for my dad as he won't be playing so much with it. SSD is a must, because he really doesn't like waiting and noise. I think i will go with a Radeon 5450 for the graphics side as i have one laying here. What i was calculating this build is going to cost about 400 euros if nothing is changing.

BTW this is from FINLAND not Russia even if the case is :D

It'd be nice to make them the power and reset buttons, and no way of doing that I believe, it's a function of the forum

Ok good to know. But yes atleast power, reset, led and fan switches are going to be in those knobs. That red thing in the front is going to be the power led.

If you don't put any labels other people will be having some difficulty finding the power button I'd imagine

[uPDATE]

 

Now the mobo, cpu and ram has arriwed here :) Tomorrow i will propably finish unloading stuff from the oscilloscope and start to make holders for the motherboard. Also i think i will after all buy a 120gb ssd and not 240. Just to save some money. Also my friend would have sold me a tower model Noctua cooler for the cpu but it doesn't quite fit in there... there is about 12cm room above the motherboard if I put it to the upper section of the case. I guess i need to buy the flat model Noctua. Also i found out that my dads current psu is just good enough for this. It is some random brand but 400w so well enough for this build.

 

BTW what you say, would the Intel HD 2000 of i3 be enough for basic stuff like web surfing, youtube, maybe some more intensive internet browser stuff. Because i was thinking if I should dump the 5450 and get a sound card instead? I don't remember how loud the 5450 was but propably louder than noctua fans :D
