At 1080p it runs fallout on the highest settings
Thanks. And of course coming right up!
Maybe I should build more of them?? Profit?
Well the first step is commitment. This project took me well over 200 hours and I went through a lot of frustration.
1.Now the motherboard is attacked via little wooden squares with screw holes I drilled. You can sort of see them in images 21 and 23. They act like the pegs in any normal case as of course the motherboard would not rest flat against the wood.
2. The switch is a power switch I scrapped from an old computer, so a normal one I'd say, it just has a metal cap on it that I made to stick out through the wood and look nice.
3. I am not very sure on pine. The wood I used is technically hardwood floor so it is very refined, treated and durable. Electrical shortages should not be an issue if there is no moisture or conductive materials touching the motherboard or other components. The wood must be dry and durable. Treated I would say. Now as long as the wood is dry, can handle heat and you have good airflow it shouldn't be an issue.
Some pictures were shortly after building it with some saw dust around. There are dust filters on the bottom that catch all the hair and large things. I have it as clean as can be now.
well I'm running the cpu at 4.4 ghz so it is pretty darn powerful. But it is entirely dependant on your game if it is bottlenecking or not. Games like metro and the forest and tropico are all graphically intense but my cpu runs does not max out it's usage. But in games like planetside and others that demand a little more cpu power my graphics card runs at like 60% power cause it is bottlnecked. The worst is GTA5 where it is so bad it stutters all over the place. It is good nonetheless, will upgrade to an i5 soon
im on max settings for almost all games i play, usually 40+ fps. The only problem is the lack of cpu cores causes stutters in the most demanding of games
-20,000 dollars. college bro.
Will upgrade in the future though!
little wooden pegs, it's okay, they are sturdy
its good, simple air in through the bottom and out through the top, my temps under load are very safe
originally not bad at all, but when i added the dust filter on the bottom air was restricted and it got a little toasty, after adding a bigger fan and another exhaust it is handled very well now
For a while when I got the computer hot from demanding games, it smelled intensely
of wood. Mhmmm
The wood samples were 25 cents a piece. very cheap stuff. The pieces were the easiest option looking into it, the back braces were probably the easiest part of the build.
ha right! those ugly brown fans finally have a home
It was incredibly hard. The worst part is that this is hardwood floor and designed to be sturdy and all the wholes I didnt cut till after I put it together, so that was very very difficult. I had problems with pieces not staying on well and fitting things in quite snug. But if you plan it better and cut before putting it together it would be a good 100 hours of work.
running at 4.4 ghz it handles most but games like witcher and gta get some nasty stutters. Looking to get an I5 soon. But it was well worth the money
thanks, I put so much work into this!
