Wooden PC Case (SB)
In the spring 2002 I designed and built a PC case out of wood (including the internal structure and holdings).
The computer I put in the case was previously mounted in a standard (slightly modded) Chieftec case. The change resulted in a 5 kg loss of weight (the case alone weigh just 1.5 kg) and an 8 degree (C) temperature drop on the CPU due to improved air flow. The great weight and space reduction was very appreciated as I used to attend several LAN parties at the time, including Dreamhack.
The power-on switch, reset-switch, HD-LED and internal speaker is fitted into a small box which is connected to the case by a 2m cord. This allows it to be positioned on the table where it easily can be reached. The box may be closed and along with its cord be retracted into a slot at the back of the case for transportation. Nothing drags behind while carrying.
At the time the TV soap opera Sunset Beach broadcasted every day and I usually never missed an episode. Hence the logo.
