Sputnik 0667 > Completed

Hello. Id like to share my first modding attemt, whitch Ive been working on the last 3 months.
It's a computer combined with the beauty of arts and crafts, titled "Sputnik 0667".
I was inspired by the 20th century and old hi-fi. A retro mess with a sort of Cold War look to it.
The color concept is a combination of walnut, brass and matte black.


Specs:

Gigabyte GA-H55N-USB3 Mini-ITX
Intel Core i3 550 3.2GHz
Corsair 4GB
500GB Western Digital
Corsair CX 430W
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 460
Samsung SH-S223C
Cooler Master Hyper TX3
2x Scythe 120mm Gentle Typhoon

monitor: AOC e2043Fs
sound: TASCAM us-122l and old speakers


Enjoy!






In context


The front


The back


The window


Close up / the solar system


Above


From side


Close up / ventilation.


From shut...


to...


TADA! ... open.


Close up / panel


Keyboard


Alternative setting > light board


Mouse "garage" open


Garage closed and DVD out


In the dark with the internal light


Two retro ads I made








WIP pictures:


Inspiration


Sketches


The beginning: MDF with walnut veneer

















The panel


Test of the system


Speakers and smaller stuff


For the lock house


The hatch





My favourite detail, the brass window from an old clock.


Holes for window and key.


Inner hatch.


Panel layout.


The moment, gluing the hatch...


It fits perfectly. Phew!


Jalousie "garage" for mouse






It's SATAN!


The foot




DVD mount


Hasp


Detail painting / matte black


DVD and garage mounted to the panel


Upper light installation


The stripes, painted with pigment varnish


Final varnish on the panel


Testing the monitor


The keyboard:








Switch and red diode on DVD


Speakers mounted on panel


The small speaker system


The fans






All switches and diodes mounted


Audio cable


The ugly mess!!
















The back panel, old school style










Solar system

This is amazing!

First I thought "Cool mod, a great way of re-using an old piece"

Then I saw it is a scratch-build!

You sir,

This is by far one of the most beautiful scratch builds I have ever seen... you've done an absolutely masterful job with the final product.
I'd love to be that good at modding one day.

Easily the best first post on Bit-Tech I have ever seen.
+Rep for an awesome entrance into the community.

Fantastic work my friend, this particular style is unique and the execution is more than perfect!!
I was wondering though how your temps are? Does your components get hot due to the small size and wood??

Mod on my friend +rep for pure awesomeness!!!

Awesome! I think you've captured the idea well. imo only the lock and key look out of place.

Thats really some nice work. You've done some interesting things and it looks gorgeous. Very nice Mid-Century / Danish Modern style, except the lock, which to me looks out of place. It's too Victorian looking. Otherwise wonderful attention to detail. I'm very impressed.

First of all, thank ya'll for the welcome. Second, glad you like me piece!
This is my first mod and I don't know much about putting a computer together. I'm just happy it ended up working at all. Got a lot of help though, picking decent parts / small buget and all... But now I can't wait to make another one. Thanx again!!

Thanks!! I could've worked a lot more with ventilaton I guess,
but the temps are ok I think, I'm no expert. GPU: <50C / CPU: <25-30C

Thanx guys!
I figured someone would mention the lock I know its out of place, but for this one, imo, that's a good thing. In the beginning, I wanted to give it more of a victorian look, with curved (cabriole) legs and all. But I got kinda bored, wanted something else, ended up with this odd mix instead... and I'm glad I did!

I like the retro look. looks like a piece direct from the cold war. Very artistic. Will this be your main computer at home, out in the family room, or where will it end up?

I love retro mods or in this case a retro scratch build! This is perfectly done. The only thing I can think of that would be extra is if you had a back door that showed a fake guts; radio tubes, ancient transistors, old wires and more.

yeah this is a pretty extraordinary build. Simplistic and retro with such attention to detail and such class. Excellent choice on the walnut too! Its got such nice, open grain and long rays. Just seems very fitting to the overall aesthetics of the build.

I hardly ever do this except when I feel its truly deserved, but +rep mate... you absolutely deserve it.

This is just way too cool. I really like the ads that you made to go along with it. They really look like the time period. this is awesome.

I noticed the key too, but believe it or not, the one thing that I don't like is the metal fan grill. It just looks out of place to me. But that is a very minor thing. This is very well done. I even like how you faded the stain on the interior to look kind of aged.
