Completed Case build



This case was built to model the cocpit gauges of the game WWII Online.





Everything but AC and a gaming port is internally wired or wireless. The keyboard slides in on dual drawer slides.





There is a hinged protective cover over the LCD screen so it does not get damaged in transport.



The edges of the plexi are cut to 45 degrees so there is only one visible seam.



To keep the LCD and PC hardware from sharing heat, it utilizes several parts of wind tunnel technology. Here is a pic of the intake wide angle diffuser and settling chamber.



The wide angle diffuser is a replica of this NASA Ames research diffuser with vanes.



These are the only connections to the outside world. 1 3 pin AC input and the 5 pin gaming joystick out port.







I wrote to OC3D to see if they would do a review of the airflow straighteners from saxonpc.com, there are 4 used on this case. One in the settling chamber, on the CPU fan , under the HDD to draw in air without moving parts. And the PSU has an Airflow straightener replacing the input 120mm fan.

That`s outstanding.

I`ve always wanted a case/install similar to that, just to put an old K7 in or something and merely install MAME on it.

Be amazing imo.

Thanks

I appreciate the comments folks. It does have a resemblance to Apple, yet the idea was spawned by looking at cases on Newegg, I saw a pic like this and thought it had an LCD inside.



Looking at the larger photo I realized it was just LED lighting and I figured I want a 20.1 inch widescreen inside my PC. Less trips packing stuff to the car with hardware for moblie gaming.

Here is a photo of the concept.



I could not just modify an exsisting case because it had to have a 8-10 degree slope for the LCD or it would glare. So I made an aluminum frame to keep this angle and LCD table height. Pic of the frame only:



There are more photos and my worklogs at http://www.saxxon.net/
