PC that was build in Pelican case. Its heavy as brick and costed me arm, leg, mental health and all my free time.
My first PC build. This has been my 1 year long project, attempt to build modular laptop from standard PC parts I could find.
Building PC inside Pelican case wasn't my first option since i really wanted make my own case out of aluminium, but that thing changed since I started to have trust issues with my material supplier. Didn't get the materials.
Build began from lower spec parts (GTX750ti, Pentium g4400) and upgrated it, when it became my primary PC. At first all parts were screwed on piece of plywood to figure out the layout.
Frame consist from two main components: lid and main frame. Main frame, where everything is bolted and screwed in is made from polycarbonate. Lid also has polycarbonate plate. Printed parts I modelled in Blender and printed them with my diy 3d-printer from ABS. It took several attempts, but the fit was pretty damn good. Frame and lid is not bolted to the case so PC can moved and cleaned without removing a single bolt. Frame can be lifted up and lid is secured with simple hinges and latches.
RGB´s controls arduino mega mini china special edition. So its fully programmable and it uses audio as source to light PC case. Codes I found online. I have no idea how to code :)
When using AC, power goes trough Meanwell RSP-750-24 (24V 750W)psu. It powers HDplex400 and two dc to dc converters 5v and 12v. One is for screen and other is for rgb. Voltage meter is on top of the lid next to camera. So when using ac its 24v and when using battery for example makita cordless drill battery then its 18v. There is room for internal battery behind lid, but Im going to leave that for later.
Even thought this PC have some expensive components there is recycled parts also. 17inch screen and 3HDD´s comes from broken laptops. Sata cables I found in rubbish bin and so on.
Visual theme was mash up of Soviet style engineering and cyberpunk.
