Over the course of the past few months I designed and built a retro-futuristic industrial info piece, clearly showcasing each and every one of the hardware components used. For this, a PC Wall is the natural format. However, I wanted to take it further…
Structurally speaking, the frame was built from rectangular steel tubing by welding, grinding, painting and cladding in Dibond and 3D printed parts. The structure can be attached to any floor or wall stand via the built-in VESA mount.
The frame centers and holds a large format 4K Display that is kept in lockstep with the Aura Sync enabled components via the water-cooled TinkerBoard single board computer (SBC). This arrangement enables the mod to continuously display information and illuminate the surroundings independently of the rig’s operating system.
On top of the display, the components are laid out with vinyl covered plexiglass mounting blocks, precisely cut on a CNC router, and connected by custom sleeved cables. Everything is kept cool by the custom EK hard tubing waterloop running through the Phantek Glacier Intel C350i water block, motherboard, Poseidon 1080ti custom block and ASUS TinkerBoard, before terminating in the EK Cool Stream PE 480 radiator. The final water-block, cooling the SBC is adapted from a Raijintek VRM cooling solution.
Before wrapping up with the specs, I would like to thank the following for their help and support: ASUS Romania ADATA XPG Romania Kaustik - cnc solution Marius M - cable sleeving
