my wooden pc finally finishd!

what if you covered it in the black felt material used for car subwoofer boxes? then u could do an acrylic window maybe? I think it might look kinda cool, like a fusion of different styles. The felt would help with sound dampening too.

I would personally add some sort of surface finish to it. The current solution works with the Noctua fans though.

That thing is pretty cool, but wouldn't using wood make it really hot since wood is a insulator?

aslong your airflow is good your fine, still it might be 2-3C hotter then a normal case, but not extreme differences

Because theres obviously pc parts that can reach that high of a temperature to ignite wood

I give you credit for making your own case and putting effort into it, most people just buy a case and its more assemble of a build than customisation like yours.

 

make sure the ends of the MDF are sealed as fine dust could come from the MDF its self and suck into the fans / components, esentionally it could eat its own self haha.

I think you can get clear UV protective spray that will seal the grain so to speak and make it easy to clean and keep the dust off.

got to love Asus components

also can you do some better photo with higher shutter speed and lower ISO cause my god those photos are blurry and low res :L

 

This, and also a picture of the overall case please >.> Make a wooden case then no one sees the thing as a whole.

It needs something to protect the wood, just sharing thoughts, Just a few questions

 

Can the wood be sanded? as it kinda look like fiber board. 

A coat of wood stain would do wonders

 

I love the concept but refer wooden accents

true but then it wouldnt really matter if the case is made of metal or wood.

Plus, PSU quality have gotten much better these days so I wouldn't really worry about it unless you are buying complete "crap" unknowningly without checking the reviews or at least manufacturer.
