Description

I moving from Alaska to Texas and wanted a safe way to transport my PC parts! So I decided to put them in a hard guitar case! It worked out pretty well and I can close the case and continue using the pc!

Looks interesting, a really interesting approach to PC building,

so u have to keep it open for a better air flow, right?

Since there is no ventilation above the GPU I assume it has to remain open for general use.

nope! it does not have to stay open. gpu does get pretty hot while gaming but it only gets up to about 80 C.

Super creative, great for LAN parties. People still do those? No? Damn internet.

I still do with my friends. It looks like 8-14 ppl in a hot and humid basement playing Starcraft, GTA2, Tetrinet, on beaten up P3, P4 (and now C2D - we ditched the P2's) pc's, and NES, SNES, Playstation, Karaoke and board games. With garden-LAN option if weather permits ('till neighbors start calling or showing up, because of noise). Yeah, we still do that!

If a device dies and we cannot make it work again, we destroy it with any or all the tools avaible from the basement. Sometimes pieces and parts fly out from the workshop room!! Security goggle required (or sunglasses).

Awesome! Next step is to put a laptop lid and a keyboard on one of the sides. Also I believe there's a place for decent size Lithium battery. This guitar case can be all-day running mobile workstation!

that's a great idea! I'd love to integrate a screen and keyboard into this! I might stick with a wireless keyboard and mouse but defintely the screen!

that would be interesting if you had something like plexi glass on one side of the case and it could shut. Still very cool though.

It can shut and the plexi glass is a great idea! I wanted it to not look like a pc when it's closed though. You can't tell from the front!

This is the smartest dumbest build I've ever seen! XD I love it! Are you considering going a step further and carving out the front face so you can use it closed? Also, you should put grills on the fans in the back.

Pretty cool.

Flashing back to the movie Desperado with those guitar case guys stepping off the bus. . . .

Fun project! This would be a great PC for any musician.

looks cool, but what about airflow and temps when the case is closed?

  • 4 months ago

when the case is closed i get about 35C on the cpu and about 60 on the gpu!

What kind of performance degradation do you get with a gpu setup like that?

  • 4 months ago
  • 1 point

using a usb pcie extension, I might only lose about 4 or 5 fps while gaming. other than that, my temps are manageable and fps is always above 60 at 1080p

First, talk about an extreme weather move! Enjoy hot Texas.and eat plenty of Texas BBQ!

Second, holy crap this is an awesome case mod. Talk about your Guitar Hero!
