When it comes to buying or building a gaming PC, or a powerful PC workstation, you don’t really have much of a choice, right? They all look pretty much the same It’s like they all have to be black, full of LEDs, shiny LEDs, they all have to be full of fans fans, everywhere, the more the better and they’re big, they’re huge, they’re bulky I mean, look at the size of this guy And they’re almost empty. If you look inside, it’s like 80% empty. We have a different vision of what a gaming PC, or a powerful PC can be. After years of attempts, designs, failures… So many failures, a lot of failures we came up with this. This is the current machine As you can see, it’s pretty small It’s pretty heavy, because it’s crammed, it’s compact It’s a hand-made wooden hull the inside is 3D-printed The story of how this was born is very long. For that matter, you will be rewarded if you back the project up with at least 5€ you will be granted with the full story like how this came into existence It goes back 12 years ago, when I started the project I went to China without any money
[Note: the current machine is NOT made in China but in Europe] Yeah, that’s a very long story So please back the project up with at least 5€ and you will be granted with the whole story.
[Note: in PDF] So the hull, the wooden hull can be easily removed by sliding it upwards let me demonstrate if you remove the hull like this And here is the inside. Here’s the machine As you can see, it’s fairly crammed So this is a complete gaming PC but reduced with miniaturized components not slower, not less powerful but small versions of full-sized components crammed into a smaller volume. the chassis, the skeleton, is 3D-printed All the white stuff you see is only one piece All this is one piece that holds the components together Originally, even the inside was made with wood. The skeleton was made with wood. It’s part of the long story that you will get if you back the project up. The biggest challenge, by far, was cooling. Cooling this was a nightmare. A PC is already hard to cool when it’s full-sized; this is a miniaturized, a crammed version of a full-sized PC. So this is even harder to cool. But we figured it out and now it works, it’s realy well cooled it remains silent, even under heavy load I’m going to record the noise I’ll come very close It is really really quiet, we can’t hear anything. It can play [*run] any game and still doesn’t heat up. The hull is available in different woods like this, this is walnut This is oak and I have elm. Elm here and oak here. [ Oak Elm Walnut] Every component is carefully selected for its quality and its reliability. The machine is assembled by hand This is all manual work, careful manual work Every machine is tested before shipping for a week, to be sure it’s perfectly reliable and stable. An interesting thing in the design is that you don’t get messy wires at the back of the PC This is the back of the PC front and back and as you can see, there’s no messy messy cables, messy wires They all come neatly, cleanly out of one hole here. So in the end, you get a compact, elegant, powerful, and original gaming PC. This particular model I have in hand is one of the prototypes. Not the latest prototype there’s a newer one that’s already been sold
[Note : the pictures are from the newer prototype] and this prototype has been my personal machine my personal PC, for about 8 months now. So I do everything on it I play games on it, of course, I play virtual reality, I design 3D stuff, I develop websites, I do everything on it. It’s a very good machine, I know it really well I know it’s fast, it remains silent It never crashes. It’s really stable Never crashes, never fails, I realy like this machine I would buy it, that’s for sure. And I hope people will!
