Toaster PC Mk. III

Hey guys, I'm back at it again with another (my third so far) toaster PC.

This one was another commission, this time for my friend Zee. The biggest difference with this one is that now I have a 3D printer, so the entire internal frame was designed in Fusion 360 and then either printed out of PETG on my Ender 3 or cut out of 4mm acrylic. After that, I used acrylic weld, super glue, and epoxy to put everything together and painted the whole frame silver.

Everything ended up fitting together really nicely, and I'm happy with how it turned out. It's soo satisfying to print something you designed and have it fit perfectly. This was also way easier than drawing plans by hand and then building everything out of aluminum angle brackets or acrylic. There's a bunch more info in the picture captions, so check it out and let me know what you think! I still want to do a toaster with a vertical CD drive that spits out CD's like toast, so keep an eye out for that maybe someday.

Idle:
CPU: 31 C
GPU: 26 C

Furmark:
GPU max 76, steady at 75 for 15 minutes. Even though those fans were mainly for aesthetics, I think they do help with temps.

Prime 95:
Took a long time to heat up, steady at around 85. I'm a massive fan of these Chromax Noctuas, and this is the cooler I plan to put on my own build soon.

I also tested Just Cause 3 which ran perfectly at max settings. I wanted to see how well it runs VR but my Vive isn't set up right now, oh well. Apparently this toaster's future is mainly Overwatch-based, so it should be excellent.

Thanks for looking!
