Thats a PC???
Upper right hand corner are 2 Raspberry Pi's, each Pi is connected to 4, 10 port usb nubs running 30 asic block erupters. It's a bitcoin mine, currently crunching out $10 a day.

far from finished only took me an hour to play with , and it did topple over on its own when i only put the wood together, so i put little feet out of wood on the front only to tilt it back , and along with the disc drive and Powersupply at the back it doesn't topple over but i might mod it a bit more

Paint:

My Dad works for bell decorating and so did i before i got lade of so we have a vast variety of gloss emulation flexarb, eggshell , and loads of water based masonry paints , ranging from black red green council classic blue for the flat doors / fire doors etc.

I also couldn't be arsed with a new case so b&q Did my proud

Got to work with the angly Grinder and removed my motherboard tray out of my pc and mounted it on to MDF 2ft squared and built a stand.

Heres what i came up with.





Gigayte MotherBoard Locked down with a AMD Bulldozer 6Core Unlocked Edition CPU Oc'd

Kingstons Hyper x 8GB Kit 1666Mhz

XFX HD4850 1GB

WD Caviar SE 320GB SATA

WD Scorpio Blue 250GB SATA



I thought its bad to leave a hard drive sideways
.

Well Thats brilliant that you mentioned that because the hard-drive there has developed / encountered some sort of read write issue when loading windows 8 (weather thats coincidental or cause of putting it on its side ) its partitioned aswell but when i put that hard-drive in my external harddrive controller it worked fine ish apart from telling me the windows was corrupt. i think it said a windows logon . exe or startup.exe file was corrupt or missing :P i will just re install it when i can be arse

In fact I would go for rubber separators on all screws used to mount the main board. Just to lower the overall vibrations. MDF is a bit stiff. But A+++ for originality.
the Hard-drives not mounted straight to the MDF its mounted with one of the antec 5.14inch drive bay adapter spacers for 2.5inch hard-drives and card readers and that was screwed / clamped to the board :P and there wasnt any vibrations excessive any more that it was when it was in the computer case

Now thats pretty sick :P haha i love it and the way the decals is mounted like a canvas is an amazing idea and instead of painting is i could allways contact my friend that works at a print works and get me a design done on to silk screening , that cost me although a2 and smaller cost me nothing
