LAN STATION (scratch build) (COMPLETED)

Recommended Posts

Scratch build: The theme of this mod is to incorporate 2 computers into a portable Gaming containment system (case)

My friend and I are sophomores at Severna Park High school and when we came across the case mod we decided to take and idea from a small computer we had built a few months before and take it to an entirely new scale.

Our LAN Station entry features two gaming computers nestled in one secure fly away, jet black box which sports two Coolermaster Heatsinks coupled to two overclocked Athlon processors to deliver accelerated performance on two 17 LCD monitors. This mobile system allows for gaming with desktop performance all in a portable and durable package. The case is made entirely of MDF wood and was painted jet black. We started working on the lan station 7 weeks ago when we created a 3d concept of the lanbox. Our final product mirrored the 3 dimensional CAD model we made. The visually and aesthetically pleasing characteristics of this design provides the perfect combination for people in need of the ultimate gaming and multimedia experience in a portable system.

Below are some pictures it is based off 2 am3 motherboards and some fantastic cooler master heat sinks!
