How is that gore? It's beautiful!

I find gore beautiful. sorry
User avatar #66 to #59 - benk (05/07/2013) [-]
cause the insides are on the outside. but i agree that its beautifully done and i never thought of that.

I want to **** whatever that is.

A mineral Oil PC

I've always wanted to do this but no matter how strong my desire, i cannot bring myself to submerse a motherboard.
User avatar #103 to #91 - thatguyontheright (05/07/2013) [-]
Its mineral oil, so its basically in lubricant....just make sure the PC is as powerful as you want it to be before you submerge it, there will be no timely upgrading.

That is beautiful

This does look like an elegant solution for dust, cabbleing, cooling, and it saves you up to easily a 100 bucks on a case and two fans.
#44 to #29 - xblueflamex (05/06/2013) [-]
Actually, there'd be more dust and particles coming from the ceiling and it would run hotter than if it were within a case. The closed case provides a vacuum environment which allows the cold air to pull heat off of the components. Without the vacuum the heat off of the components wouldn't dissipate properly.
#94 to #44 - anon (05/07/2013) [-]
Well you aren't taking into consideration that even in an open environment that air naturally has a buoyancy effect when heated. Yes, in a case you are using "forced convection" with the CPU fan and internal components being cooled by air running across it, but without a case some air does travel upwards naturally creating small (albeit very small) currents of air around each heated component keeping it cooled on the wall fairly decently.
TL;DR : It probably would work better in a case yes, but as to say that it would be terribly inefficient in comparison, I'm not so sure.

im pretty sure that unless you had something with really good active cooling, like something from the haf line that open air systems run cooler. because convection just carries the hot air away

Computer cases are incapable of holding a vacuum or a pressure higher than atmospheric, since they are not air-tight nor are the case fans powerful enough. Additionally, consider that a significant amount of heat coming from the components is in the form of infrared radiation: the mostly-metallic cases simply reflect the rays around and prevent them from leaving. An open environment would allow the radiation to escape.
You are, however, correct about the dust and the establishment of air current in a computer case. As anon noticed, however, there would be a small amount of current established by free convection. Experimentation or complicated thermodynamic simulations would have to be done to see whether the IR benefit would be greater than the forced convection loss. It is not a clear-cut answer. This is all theoretical, of course, since dust would make the case-less rig require more frequent cleaning.

plus it's only a matter of time until something falls off
User avatar #93 to #44 - awesomenessdefined (05/07/2013) [-]
Always go for positive pressure. Negative pressure is **** , it just collects dust and doesn't have it leave.

Upgrading parts would be so easy

Looks nice but a stupid idea.

Dust will get in even easier, you can also hear the damn thing easier.
User avatar #24 to #10 - JonathanNowFuckYou (05/06/2013) [-]
Maybe, but then again with this kind of open layout would there need to be much of a cooling system like a fan? (I know close to nothing about computers and hardware, I only know words)
#41 to #10 - firesky (05/06/2013) [-]
Well there's dust everywhere in my midi-tower and it's nearly impossible to get everywhere.
That way you can clean it a lot easier.
And the noise level, well. The usual components with a cooler are the CPU, GPU and Power supply. Each of them can be cooled passive. And if you use an SSD you have no moving parts left that cause noise.

I think it's actually a pretty cool idea.
#45 to #10 - anon (05/06/2013) [-]
I know a cover would defeat the point, but I bet with that setup, upgrading would be a lot easier.
#47 to #10 - anon (05/06/2013) [-]
why not just hang it upside down from the ceiling, allowing as little dust as possible to collect
#16 to #10 - shishiko **User deleted account** (05/06/2013) [-]
But you can also clean it easier too...?

So that's actually a nice roll

That's not gore, that's very pretty.

Now, whats really disturbing is that he used WD Blue drives for such a rig. A WD Black or two would have been objectively better.
he also should have went with red LED's, and stayed with his red and black scheme.

Overall I give it a 7/10. Great idea, but with poor execution.

Dusting easy as hell, nevermind having to do it more, at least now you can see any dust that gets on it
On wall, chances of spilling drink on it low
All components in the open: bonuses to air cooling and makes it easier to upgrade.

Id be so worried about dust....
User avatar #71 to #61 - chuckbillrow (05/07/2013) [-]
a case does not do much to help with dust... my sister once opened up the family computer and found the case more or less filled with spider webs and also very dusty

Seems like it would get dusty pretty quickly

That's pretty cool, except for one thing. HIS ******* CPU BECAUSE HE'S RUNNING A STOCK COOLER.

At least you don't need fans

try looking at that thing on the processor buddy But one of my fave gifs for trying

How about this.
*Correction: You don't need as many fans

I'll take it

I'm actually a huge fan of open-case computers, I dunno, I just like em better.

I want this.

I want this a lot.

I would kill for this.

But I don't have the space on my wall ;(
