  1. Custom Made Computer as Funtional Wall Art PC: Link to the ad on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/291071896381?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Here is a custom computer that I have just finished building. It has taken me about 3 months to work on this project, a lot of time and care has gone into this. This is a computer that is inside of, what is basically, a custom made shadow box/ picture frame. I like the idea of letting the computer components speak for themselves. From the motherboard's complex circuits, to the simple exterior of a HDD, I have always felt it is such a shame to tuck these beautiful parts away into a computer case or worse, ruin them in a gaudy case that still just ends up under a desk. Art, is meant to be hung on a wall for display. And that is exactly the idea that I'm trying to bring to life. This computer has plenty of bite to match it's bark, here is a list of the components of and specifications: Video Card: XFX AMD Radeon HD 7750 Chipset: AMD Radeon HD 7750 Video Memory: 1GB GDDR5 Memory Interface: 128-bit Bus: PCI-Express 3.0 x16 Max. Resolution: 2560 x 1600 Connectors: DVI-I, HDMI, DisplayPort CPU: FX-8320 FX-Series 8-Core Black Edition Frequency: 3.5/4.0GHZ (Base/Overdrive) Cores: 8 Cache: 8/8MB (L2/L3) Socket Type: AM3+ Power Wattage: 125W RAM: G.Skill DDR3 PC3-12800 RipjawsX Series 8GB DDR3 PC3-12800 Dual channel kit 2x4GB 1600MHz CL9 (9-9-9-24) Hard drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200 1.5 TB 7200RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Power Supply: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular High Performance Power Supply This is all running on a clean/fresh install of Windows 8 and will come ready to hang on your wall and plug in your devices just like any other PC. The back of this computer has a built in TV wall mount for easy mounting, and the front/ frame portion of the computer is held in by clips, so you can simply pull it off to access all USB and other plugs. This computer was also designed for long term usage, all components are installed so that they may be replaced or upgraded. This computer is great for anyone looking to spice up their workstation or gaming area. Or this is a great piece of artwork that has a twist of being a relatively high-end computer. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to message me through e-bay. Thank you, Scott Y. This video displays how it looks on a wall. There is an LED light strip installed inside this case that comes with a controller and has about 20 different light options as well as several different mode options, such as strobe, fade, and flash, all of which you can change the speed of. It also allows you brighten or dim the lights in the box in case they are too distracting. Keep in mind that it is incredibly hard to get good video of this computer because of the lighting. http://youtu.be/lAxg8qdXyZU Here is a video of the computer setting on a desk displaying one of the lighting modes in better with the rest of the lights on in the room. http://youtu.be/fnnlW_h02Dg
  2. I have just completed my project of building a computer that is inside of, what is basically, a custom made shadow box/ picture frame. I like the idea of letting the computer components speak for themselves.

Art is meant to be hung on a wall for display. And that is exactly the idea that I'm trying to bring to life. Let me know what you think. I have installed Battlefield 4 to check out how well it could handle it and to keep an eye on temps. After playing with all but a couple of settings all the way up for about an hour or so the CPU's highest recorded temp was 39.5C, GPU max was 53C. The motherboard has 3 sensors, highest was was 47C. Specs: This computer was built for mid-high performance. I wanted this computer to have a least some bite to live up to its bark.
