Impractical? Yes. impossible? Maybe.
As the title suggests I want to build an everyday use / entertainment build using a 2400g. Now my current gaming setup (the Aurora Borealis build on my partpicker builds) consists of a ryzen 2700x, Asus x470 pro, aorus 2080, and 750 watt psu inside of an nzxt h500i. Now I'm not using the drive bay in the bottom of the case and could fit another power supply. I've used a lite edition CAD like software to design a rendering and although the dimensions fit (almost barely) I'm more worried about the obvious issues like ESD standards, heat and interference. Now alternatively I have designed a dual system mounting layout that would place both pcs on my keyboard tray. I have a glass top desk and wouldn't mind using that as a DIY desk build. Again, as impractical as it sounds just asking if anyone has attempted anything like this ?! I have found DIY parts from sites like mountain mods and other modding sites that would be of aid. You can save the negative comments about how I'm wasting money or time as that isn't what this is about to me. I'm a PC enthusiast and a dual system sounds kind of intriguing as both my fiance and I often need to use the PC at the same time and my desk is built to have someone sit on both sides and hold 2 monitors back to back. Normally I use a laptop and hdmi connection to a second monitor but as you can imagine going from my PC to my laptop feels a bit sluggish to say the least. I dont want to take up too much space with another atx size case yet havent found A. an AMD sff case that isnt a compromise in functionality / look like a cable box or B. a dual system build case that I like.. the phanteks being the only I'd even consider, yet somehow I like the look of my nzxt case and after finally getting everything perfect taking it apart would feel wrong. If that makes any sense lol.
