    Hi all!

    I got around some older parts that my friend did not need any more, so I took the MoBo, CPU,RAM,GPU,PSU and HDD... also took out a 17" Full HD screen from a broken laptop (also the speakers from it)... and I got thinking... what to do with it... I knew I wanted to do an integrated thing, with vertical screen... After some time designing it in my head, I sat down and did it in 3D.
    That is what you can see here. I also cleaned and tested all components, installed OS and got it all working, so no I only gotta find some time and get all the parts that I need to build this.

    Freakin isolation is not helping me, cause almost all stores are closed over here... but, bit by bit and it will be soon done.

    You will be wondering whats with the cables up front... well, I decided to make video and audio signals selectable, so you can plug in the integrated display and speakers or use external ones. Connecting internal display and speakers this way just seemed cool to me, nothing else.

    Here are the renderings, and as soon as I start building it, I`ll post my progress over here.

    Its a great feeling when you imagine something, design it, render it and then make it ;) The full circle ;)

    The 3d modeling just makes you want to build more, Def.

    Its handy when you have an idea in your head, to see how it would actually look like, and then to tweak all the details and see possible problems before you start building

    I love the look of modular synths, so I had to have some external cables. Good thing you can find anything on Aliexpress, so red cables are on the way ;)
