Description 

This is my current scratch build project "WD Crimson", it's an inverted 90 degree motherboard design that uses an ATX motherboard, SFX PSU and 240mm CPU cooler displaying its hardware in a unique way while also with an emphasis on space efficiency, dimensions being 403mm Long x 385mm High 210mm Wide. 

Specs

  • i5 6600K
  • GTX 1070 EVGA FTW
  • Z170 EVGA FTW
  • 16GB EVGA RAM
  • Silverstone SFX 600W PSU
  • Thermaltake RIING 140 and 120mm Fans
  • Corsair H100i GTX
  • 3Tb WD Red and 120GB Intel 535 SSD

______________________________________________________________________

 

So far I have Completed the designs, cut the lengths, filed the lengths, and scribed the markings. I'm currently drilling pilot holes at 3/32".

The plans look amazing, in my opinion. 

I'll also give you points for the quality of the picture. They don't look like they were just slapped on.

Can't wait to see the finished build...


I NEEDED WINDOWS 10 64-BIT SO BADLYxD



 

The awesome build

Ram: DDR400 2.5 GB   GPU: It's big, that's all I know   Case: A red box   Motherboard: My mother hates me   HDD: I don't have one, I threw it against the wall and it broke, so it is a softdrive   CPU: Intel Pentium 3, Quake get's rekt   OS: Microshaft Winblows XP

 

Here comes a beast of a laptop, the TravelMate 5742, it's so bad (get the reference )

Ram : 4 GB DDR3 SDRAM  (1066Mhz)     CPU :  Intel Core i5 480M / 2.66 GHz (It turbo's up to 2.93 GHz)     GPU :  Intel HD Graphics     HDD : 500GB (5400 rpm) OS : Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit (Build 1607)

Awesome, tons of potential. I also doubt the airflow ill be affected much, if anything... the graphics card will cool more efficiently.

I don't think it will, ill see if system temps are higher than other builds.

I love this tiny SFX PSU, I've been wanting one for a while and I'll be using it in a lot of future builds.

Looks cool! But... erm... how do you want to access the external motherboard ports?

from underneath and routed out the back, it wont be practical it's more of a show piece.

That brushed/scratched metal looks so beautiful! Have you thought about making a kind of weathered/used looking build? Because I can imagine it would look great!

That could be a bit of fun, I quite like the weathered look. but for my scratch builds clean lines seems most fitting.

Dude That is gorgeous! 

It's crazy I've just started a very similar build (material wise at least) for some old server hardware I've had laying around and seeing how you've done all of this has shown / answered a lot of problems with how I was planning to do mine.

Was a bit freaked out when I noticed we live in the same state too.
