I still have not bought or built a pc yet. Combine my procrastination, being poor(and cheap), and my EXTREME pickiness... and decisions take forever.
(I SERIOUSLY have a difficult time with decisions... so, please be patient with me. )
Anyway... I have a couple questions. One of the things slowing me down is cases. The looks and features, well this is where I'm just picky I guess. I've been wondering...
1. Building my own case instead of purchasing(if I did that)... would it cost any less?(or more) I'd have to buy individual pieces... standoffs, etc etc...
2. I've been wondering if I could use something like a steel drum. I can get one for a few bucks at a local little debbie store... I could cut it down to the height(or thickness) of a typical desktop and go from there. LOTS of ideas there... How difficult would it be to make sure it's ventilated enough?
3. Would it be too difficult to build one in a guitar? I've seen those online. I have a spare guitar.
Oh so many things to consider.
4. If I stick with buying a case for less work... back to the pickiness. If I find a case I like all of except the side panel... could I remove it and just put on a big piece of plexiglass instead? I want a good window there but some that I like the looks of otherwise... either have no window or a TINY one. (What's the point of the tiny windows anyway?)
If I did something like a guitar or steel drum, I'd mount it to the wall or something... and I could customize where fans, slots, psu, etc goes. And the overall design look, I can be picky and customize how I want. But need to figure if that would be worth the time and money involved.
