Toaster PC Mk. I

Ever heard someone call a poorly-performing computer a "toaster"? Well, this PC isn't poorly-performing, but it sure is a toaster!

At some point my brother made a joke about how funny it would be if someone actually made a PC inside a toaster, and after I thought about it I decided this was definitely something I could accomplish. It took me about 3 months to complete and I spent ~100 hours doing it, but I think the work paid off. If you're interested, I wrote up a whole build log on imgur, here's the link: https://imgur.com/gallery/cj550iz.

I've gotten a lot of questions about thermals in the toaster, how does it compare to a standard case? Zotac's 1080ti mini is pretty well known for its less effective cooling (only two fans and less heat sink area) compared to other 1080ti's and this case doesn't fix that. However, from what I've read this card reaches thermal max pretty quickly regardless of case, so I don't think the toaster is to blame when it does hit thermal max in this case. As far as CPU temps go, the 240mm radiator is plenty for my stock-speed Ryzen 2700x, and I don't think the case affects its temps either.

I learned a lot from building this, and it's made me want to keep building unique PC cases. Hope you like it as much as I do!
