  1. The Rackmount DJ Project

    Hey there, this is my first post over at the The Mod Zoo so bare with me on this one. ;) This computer is not mine but I have helped on the project and all the photos are taken by me so I am "in charge" of the build log apparently. The Story in Brief: A close friend of mine is a DJ and needed a system to run his software and store his music. Another friend used to work for a coach company and happened to have an old rack cabinet from work that they were throwing away. Long story short, we ended up with a really old crappy cabinet with an old Pentium 4 computer and some really heavy amps and stuff. We decided the whole thing was perfect for his DJ setup and away we went. The cabinet as we received it (minus the PC as we were too eager to take it out and have a look!): And the lovely beast itself: (Ignore the third-party xbox fans in the front, my friend was seeing if they fit.) Now I don't have any images of the hardware that was used in the computer as I wasn't there when it was all pulled out to take photos but I do know it had an Asus P5PE-VM Mobo, Intel Pentium 4 CPU, 20GB HDD and I think about 512MB of RAM. Anyway on with the show - We took all the old stuff out and gave it a little clean over with a sponge. The colour my friend decided on was blue so off we went painting the case and it's naughty bits... While the paint was drying we got to work on the flight case, ripping all the amps and wiring out and cleaning and painting the exposed wood on the inside. We then went a bit crazy with wires and setup a distribution board to power all the amps and the computer, complete with it's own plug socket on the front and custom made speaker wiring throughout to all the amps. The fans you see in the image were already in the case, we reused them and daayumn can those things blow! Anway... paint was dry! I had an old temperature reader I had purchased from eBay many years ago so decided to put it to good use, even though there was already 2 on the front, you can never have enough illuminated numbers! Here's my hand (and disgusting looking thumb) cutting a hole for the display. Now the computer was ready for components! The only images I have of that part (as I wasn't there and they didn't take photos!!) are these 2: Everything is all fine and dandy so far, the motherboard, CPU and RAM have been ordered by my friend and this is what he chose for his DJ rig: Mobo: Gigabyte (I'm unsure which one he has but I know it's blue and comes in a bundle package >.<) CPU: AMD FX6300 RAM: Kingston HyperX 16GB GPU*: Nvidia Geforce GT610 2GB *This is correct at time of this post. Due to the nature of the case it can ONLY have low profile graphics cards but we are thinking of changing it to a low profile version of one of AMD's R9 series cards. Whilst the components were on order we decided to cut a window into the lid of the PC and place in some perspex and UV LEDs around the edge. And last but not least, we placed some LEDs into the case itself and the final product is as follows. I'll let the photos do the talking from now on. If you wish to view the full collection of photos they can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/VOUct#0 (Including a lot more of the flight case build process)
  2. Hey everyone, I want to say hello since this is my first post on this forum! This is also my first custom case built from scratch, so I thought I would share. Im always looking for feedback to help improve my designs. Sadly I have already completed the project and therefore don't have any way of making a proper build log style updates. But I made sure to take plenty of pictures of the build which can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/tnKTh The premise behind this project was the need for a large amount of storage of various pieces of digital media. (3+TB or more) I have been wanting to build my own home media server for sometime and finally found an excuse to build one. I wanted to be able to stream media to my various mobile devices and run an FTP server, plus since im a gamer, I wanted to be able to host game servers for my buddies and I to play on as well. My biggest problem was space. My desk was cluttered enough as it was and I didn't have anywhere to put it, even the small ITX cases were too big. That's when I started browsing online for inspiration and thats when it hit me to put it on the wall. These first few pictures of the completed build I used a piece of smoked acrylic as the base for are the hardware, however, I didn't like it as much as I thought, so I replaced it with a custom cut piece of anodized aluminum. Aluminum Plate After Anodizing: Etching: Final Design with Aluminum Plate in Place: Hope you enjoyed viewing this project with took many months to complete, if you have any questions, feel free to ask!
