If so, what components?

Mini ITX, Low profile CPU cooler or LC, Maybe mount HDD and SSD on top or sides, PSU can fit if you choose a short GPU such as R9 nano, and dont forget that you will need some sort of acting cooling system blowing through the chassis.

Main System Specs:

  • Intel Core i5 6500 3.2GHz CPU
  • Gigabyte GA-H170-D3H Motherboard
  • Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB 2400MHz, Gskill Ripjaws 8GB
  • Asus GTX 1060 Turbo
  • Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB SSD
  • Seagate 1TB NAS Grade HDD x2
  • Thermaltake NiC F3 Cooler
  • EVGA Supernova 750 G2 Power Supply
  • NZXT S340 Red/Black Case
  • Noctua NF-F12 Fan x2

Laptop Specs:

  • Intel Pentium N3700 CPU
  • 4GB Kingston RAM
  • Intel HD Graphics
  • Windows 10 Home

Peripherals:

  • Microsoft Wired 600 KB

^basically this^

 

Don't forget the standoffs...

 

as for the PSU, try a form factor smaller than ATX... SFX should be small enough...

 

An AIO cooler is a must...

 

Cooling is your main issue with this case...

 

Also, please follow your topic...

Yes but you will need to cut lots of holes in it and will need super small components

 

I would get the Corsair C70 in green and decorate your desk with the ammo tin instead

 

perhaps get some 7.62 ammo linkages and spread them around

What kind of PC? A gaming PC is going to be pretty difficult to have it nicely cooled.

 

The ammo box is quite a bit smaller than a NCase M1, which is the smallest gaming PC case I've seen that looks like it would actually work.

 

You may be able to make it work by using DC-DC converters with an external power supply, but I don't know of any off the shelf ATX converters that would work for over 250-300 watts, and finding an external power brick with that high of wattage may be tricky.

I once built a miniITX open-frame "case" that then went into a night vision goggle case.   :)    http://spotswoodcomputercases.com/wp/?page_id=8567

 

(Off topic but that Helmer drawer replacement is awesome)

Mini-ITX is just small enough to fit but you probably won't be able to get a GPU in there without a riser cable.

I cannot be held responsible for any bad advice given.

I've no idea why the world is afraid of 3D-printed guns when clearly 3D-printed crossbows would be more practical for now.

My rig: The StealthRay. Plans for a newer, better version of its mufflers are already being made.

Depending on how I fit in the PSU it might work.

If you can fit it in there a silver stone SFX PSU or one of theses HD plex ones would be good but with that system it would be maxing it out:

By any chance do you know what power adapter people use to supply that board? I've never been able to find one with a that high of wattage that was enclosed.

 

I've seen that Xbox 360 adapters are commonly used, but still only prove a bit over 200 watts. I'd like to find one with 350-400 watts.

Power adapters for gaming laptops or Xboxes as your said are usually the best bet for those kinds of board PSU's but with the hardware you have it would be pushing that to the max not to mention if you want to overclock. I've seen theses used mainly for HTPC's in small enclosures.

Always thought about using a watertight ammo box with oil inside of it as a PC case for a low power PC (like a pentium and SSD with passive GPU)

What is the PSU luke used in his fallout build? It looked so tiny.

radiator rack and a couple fans, but Yeah Ive had that Idea too, I think it would work pretty well...

I did some drawing and no it sadly is not possible. Motherboard is 17x17cm and on mini ITX boards high end GPUs extend over the side of the MB. with one cm to spare, there is not enough place for a high end gpu, even a nano. You would have to remove a god portion of the bottom and lift the case a few centimeters. Which is unpractical and looks stupid.

Use a short PCIe riser and lay the Fury nano flat on the back of the MoBo (use proper isolation).

Can you show the pictures you made?

If I did, you would shoot me. 

Was at work so I had no modeling software, I used paint and used 10px for a cm. I guess laying it ontop of the moba would work(space-wise), but it would strongly restrict airflow.

Haha ok :)

You would have to make proper air in an outtake anyway. My proposal:

- 1 intake fan in the bottom

- 1 intake close to the GPU

- 1 outtake fan on both "length sides"

This will lead to 3 case fans and should give good thermals. But the noise level migth be a bit high.
