    @YetAnotherTechChannel could you please tell us the dimensions of the aluminum pipe?
    Thank you!

    I made the design with aluminum, but it can not handle the fold, it is weak when it cuts, it is malleable and it does not support the case. it was thin in the fold of the aliminium, and I tried to make it thicker and not sure. Can you solder the aluminuo folds? To be necklace?

      You can try brazing aluminum, which is like soldering but requires a higher temperature.

    This looks awesome, rly nice idea. As someone said "yeah, great design just didn't put as much effort into it as i hoped he would've". What I would add is couple blue leds to make it look even better at night

      They do! You can run games but still a GTX1050 will be a much better at it.

      My parents don't need a discrete GPU - the one integrated in the CPU is good enough ;)

    Glad to see there are still folks out there with individuality and the will to DIY. I mean how exciting can one get with your standard "box" enclosure anyways. Lots of work but well worth it for a 1-of-a-kind and not, oh ya you upgraded your case and the difference is? Only one thing, needs some kind of feet which shouldn't be too hard.

    • YetAnotherTechChannel
      YetAnotherTechChannel  8 месяцев назад

      You have a very good overview of the parts I used at 1:14
      - 1x square profile 15x15mm
      - 2x L shaped profiles 10x15mm
      - 1x 30mm flat bar
      - 1x 20mm flat bar
      - 2x 30mm piece of wood (I think I used only one)
      - 2x 20mm piece of wood (I think I used only one)

      Computer parts are noting really special - this will work with any mini ITX motherboard and SFX power supply.

  • Conner Reid

    Wow, really nice-looking case! Love the simplicity of the design and the material palette and your approach to keeping it low-cost and efficient. The execution looks really well done for a DIY build, too. The way you varied the lengths and cuts of the wood pieces really helped keep all the inevitable human error stuff invisible and make everything feel intentional and clean. But I feel like you missed an opportunity to detail out the power button and make it a feature without breaking the aesthetic. It looks more like a cool box or cabinet and I think with just a little more detailing of the more "computery" parts, it could have been more easily identified as a case from a distance, but maybe that was your intention. Impressive work, sir!

    seems like a weird choice of CPU cooler. i know its cheap and small but... its extremely noisy and i think fire would be better at cooling
    I would probably have given it taller feet and placed all the I/O so it faced down

    • YetAnotherTechChannel
      YetAnotherTechChannel  8 месяцев назад

      Well I actually did order a different cooler but it took way too long to deliver and I had to settle for the stock HSF that I had laying around.
