AMD Bulldozer Build - Gigabyte - Kingston RIG

SO basically i got bored of my old rig and built a new one.

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.

Kingstons Hyper x 8GB Kit 1666Mhz

XFX HD4850 1GB

WD Caviar SE 320GB SATA

WD Scorpio Blue 250GB SATA

Well it's original, i'll give you that! Does it not topple over? I would have thought some of the stand would have needed to be at the front due to all the weight being on the front? Any plans to paint the MDF or is that the finished article?

Very intriguing! Have you considered covering the MDF with self-adhesive shelf liner or perhaps wallpaper? Maybe find a holographic sheet, that would be eye bending.

You could encase it in glass and make a painting type case ( with proper ventilation of course ). Instead of a painting, you would have a computer in your frame And please tell me you put rubber separators between the HDD and the MDF on the screws. 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.

I already have tons of ideas I would do with that

Since it's AMD I would of probably sprayed a AMD logo for the background red and black with a fat AMD symbol on it

I would also modify how the board and stand is mounted I would at best attach it to a wall mount device or find a wall stud and strap mount it in case you have clumsy people walking by and maybe putting a Plexi glass bubble around it would help from drinks getting spilled accidentally or purposely
