    Hi!

    I'm the author of a current scratch build called "Alumination" still in progress. In fact in hard Progress...!!

    But this week end, i bigan my first makable project, with all necessaries tools and materials..

    I've found 5 years ago in my father's room his old navy wallet... Aluminium wallet...

    At first, i used it as a pharmacy cupboard in my WC with one shelf. It was very easy to use everyday and really improbable and funny concept.. You'll probably tell me: " why not"?

    Two weeks ago, my girl freind needed a correct computer for her studies.

    Then I decided to gave her my old hardware configation:
    GA p35-dsr rev2.0.
    e6750 overcocked at 3,6 Ghz.
    8800 gts.

    Pretty old for a geek isn't it? But still working like a charm...

    Well, i combined the two olds stuffs PC&Navy Wallet..
    Another improbable combination.. You'll probably tell me for the second time: " why not"?

    So let's show you some... dust and durty work,

    Cool. :D
    Nothing says 'bomb' quite like a modified metal suitcase. Be careful how you transport it.

    the objectif of this scratch buil is not to do a professionnal build, i want to keep the spirit of this Old Navy wallet.

    It's a "Punk" project, so do not expect amazing finitions... :p

    The very first image reminded me of a completely torn down Coolermaster Cosmos case that a friend did.

    Nice work with the mod, it turned out really well... pretty much the ultimate type of case for a LAN party. :thumb:
    How's the cooling and noise levels in that thing?

    Great work, liking the scruffy exterior hiding useful interior.

    I've just sent the diagram airflow. There is only 1PSU, 1 fan, 1 stock cpu cooler and one 8800gts. It is pretty quite exept the old Sata HDD... :lol:

    REally thanks, a Punk Project...

    And thanks to your website, Amazing Community here!!!! :clap:

    weak spot in my opinion will be definitely the CPU temp, the airflow will more likely be somethink like:

    I may be wrong, but i think you better add an exhaust fan to the left of the CPU

    Hi, your probably right for the fan on the side of the wallet but more i'll touch it, less that will looks like a wallet.

    Then, after 30minutes of OCCT, the maximum temperature rise to 65°C..

    The CPU is O/C with stock cooler, so I think it's "normal"...
