Suitcase PC

So a few months back my wife went to an auction and purchased a few old suitcases that she planned on making an end table out of. She had one extra and she thought that I might want to use it to build a custom case with it. Well she was right, haha. Here is my very first custom case build out of an old suit case.

I pulled an old motherboard tray, plexiglass side panel, and power/reset buttons from an old tower I had lying around and used them with the suit case. For the components, I went on eBay and bought a few used parts which ended up working out perfect! Overall I really like how it turned out and now I am hooked! I am trying to think of what my next build will be.

UPDATE:
I added two pictures after some thermal testing.

*After running Heaven for about an hour, the GPU temps hovered around 70C
*After the hour, I ran a few Cinebench R15 runs and the COU topped out at 56C
