Stuffwell - The Case PC

So this is it. Say hello to Stuffwell.

What is it?

Stuffwell is a case PC and also a fully functional tower. The heart and main components which normally fit in a standard case are packed together in the bottom of a case originally intended to pack DJ-Equipment. In the top there is a 23,6inch monitor which fits the case perfectly. I know, it's basically a Notebook. And yes, thats true. But it's a 34 pound notebook without any kind of battery!

But WHY?!

That's a pretty good question. Maybe because the build costs less than a new high end notebook. Maybe because I needed something to build. Maybe just because I can. The real reason is not coming along alone, there are two! The first is that my girlfriend needs a "real" PC in addition to her notebook which is not the most intensive gaming machine. The other reason is that I needed a PC that is kind of portable and has enough power to use Visual Studio and it's emulators for android and IOs when I am not at home which my, at this point, 7 year old notebook can't provide anymore. Also it's quite useful when your going to a LAN-Party.

How was the build?

Yeah, so... It was a ride on my balls. I had so much issues and design errors during this build that sometimes I don't wanted to succeed. Interestingly I found a solution for every problem that occurred. Yeah sometimes it was simply luck but anyways: IT WORKED and it totally payed of to put so much effort in this project.

Other questions?

If you have questions: don't be shy. Ask them below in the comments and I will do my best to answer!
