Description

Inspired by Luke’s build I decided to build my very own Fallout 4 nuke stream pc.

I 3d printed 2 cylinders and 2 motherboard trays on a taz-2. One cylinder was made of ABS and the other was PLA. The ABS did not come out was well as I had hoped. Several layers did not adhere properly and split in the 3d printing process. The PLA cylinder came out well except for some slight warping around the bottom. I then printed out two different trays to see which would work better. I decided on the second because it held the board a bit better and would help with directing some of the air flow.

GTX 960 -Going to be added later when I get the pcie ribbon cable from new egg….it has been 2 weeks >:(

The paint job was supposed to look post apocalyptic, where it would look hastily painted with lots of over spray and other mistakes. The ABS cylinder paint job look fits that look better than the PLA.

I soldered the button that once played the sound effect to a old power on/off cable so it would act as the primary power button. After a wheel chair incident it was left broken. I’m currently working on a way to fix it, but for now I just have to use another button to start and shut off the computer.

Nicely done! Yours doesn't have bolts sticking out the sides of it like Luke's. I don't understand why he didn't grind those things off.....

J.Sammour 2 points 13 months ago

I do recommend you contact Luke Lafreniere and show him your build

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

How would I go about contacting Luke?

J.Sammour 1 point 13 months ago

Perhaps tagging him on facebook or instagram with the build link?

J.Sammour 1 point 13 months ago

He didn't reply, try to contact him using facebook, email, twitter or anything else

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

So far I have tried Contacting him through twitter and his account on LTT forums. Thanks for trying though. :)

So awesome! Definitely would like to see this with that 960 in it. +1

Dalton334 1 point 13 months ago

Very cool. You can probably sell that for far more than you paid for it.

PolarBearsHD 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

Ahh! Cables! Other than that, amazing build!

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Fixed ;)

UnicornWarriorrr 1 point 13 months ago

What monitor is that?

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Samsung S29E790C

RhettRO55 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

I love samsung and pretty much everything they make, but can you say that this UW 1080p is worth the extra 200-300 more than other brands like LG, Dell or Asus that offer pretty much the same product but at a reduced price?

zainraza95 1 point 13 months ago

Awesome build! What are the temperature readings under load?

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

~60°Celsius

I’ve got a 140mm for intake and a 120 for exhaust. They work well to keep sufficient airflow for the intell stock cooler at the scarifies of noise output. This sucker gets up 40dbs under load!

Very nice! Just did a Fallout themed build myself. Sitting here scratching my head as to how you made it all fit.

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Made the computer in a CAD program and accounted for cable sizes and proper fluid dynamics to make sure there would be sufficient air flow throughout the case.

RhettRO55 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

Id love to see some more pics of your build, when Luke built that one it drove me absolutely insane with how he did ... well pretty much everything, but mostly supergluing and no measuring and just the whole thing needed to be rethought before it was implemented.

philphaser 11 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

Agree! Those holes he made for USB and power? argh

RhettRO55 1 Build 2 points 13 months ago

Also the fact that (like a TON of the things that channel does) they result to glue and duct tape and spit and whatnot when there are actual VALID products to use, case in point gluing those USB ports/extension cables in place when they make USB plates with actual mount screws for that VERY thing. Dont get me wrong, I love that channel and a lot of what they do, but some of it is just WRONG!

philphaser 11 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

Wrong and paintful to see! I think when Linus glittered the PSU of his XMas Build i scratched and bit myself bloody at the same time... : /

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

In one of the pictures you can see that I have mine mounted on a tray that can be removed so I can work on it out side of the case. Still refunding the backside and I/O hope to finish it soon though.

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

Just added a few more pictures of the build. :)

nsyochum 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

pretty dope, sad that it won't run fallout to the max though

Also, I would hugely recommend a better PSU

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

Oops! I actually have a silver stone 450W modular in there thanks for pointing that out!

FACUNDO 12 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

That PSU should be fine

nsyochum 2 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

1) he changed it 2) still a tier 3 PSU in a tight space and likely high heat, I personally wouldn't use it

GentlemanShark 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

Slick, is that you?

emxry 1 point 13 months ago

Nice!

Ropota 1 point 13 months ago

I saw something similar on LTT. This is a awesome build anyways. I always wanted to do a build inside of a custom case but I dont have the patience nor the patience ( I know I said that twice) to make one lol

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

For a senior project this did test my patience, and for being my first custom pc(hopefully me last)I think I did a good job with the limited experience I had. I would recommend doing a custom pc, because it teaches you a lot of custom design and engineering and plus it is a lot of fun if not stressful. :)

Great build!! Very original!! +1!!

Not really original, but definitely executed better than its inspiration. Good job, OP.

Enrico411 1 point 13 months ago

Thx for the vid. Didn't see it yet.

AxelitionPC 1 point 13 months ago

Linus would be proud

This is very cool! I hope the rest of your process goes well when you finish it. This is very awesome as to how you made it. +1
Gooberdad 7 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Am I missing something? What cpu did you use?

Edit ahh not finished. Very cool build.

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

I just forgot to include that in the parts list. I5-4430 :)

Gooberdad 7 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Cool deal. Really neat case.

iamawesome2059 1 point 13 months ago

But can it run fallout 4?

FACUNDO 12 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Holy god! Which is the CPU?

+1 +1 +1 +1111

J.Sammour 1 point 13 months ago

You red my mind on the fan placement, see if you can add a small fan on the bottom, perhaps a 80mm

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

I managed to fit a 140mm fan in the bottom. :)

fezzad 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

awesome little build dude love the theme :D

Jäßßäwöçkëë 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

That is one awesome looking setup! +1 Also great job replicating Luke's build. Looks pretty stellar.

robster500 1 point 13 months ago

+1 just for LTT reference :D

TeyKey1 2 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

super epic!

muckyduck_ 1 Build 1 point 13 months ago

Wow, this looks way better than Luke's (salt to the earth)

I love the way you made the fan on top oriented, and even though you custom made the case it looks and seems to work a lot better!! The paint job matches the style exactly, and looks really well done. My only question is why use 960 instead of 970? I believe Asus offers a smaller card in 970 fashion. I bet the base of this one works too...

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

I would have liked to put a 970 in, but I had a small budget for this build. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

mrkohlbeck 6 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Absolutely fantastic! I love the reference and creativity.

Aquatigger 1 point 12 months ago

cool

billybobjr 1 point 12 months ago

you should invert those case fans since hot air rises it would be easier and less noise possibly.

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

The fans do work with convection. The bottom fan is intake and the top exhausts.

NwahTheGreat 1 point 10 months ago

wow, that looks awesome!

buracobama 1 point 3 months ago

Nice setup.

How do I get it featured?

elias.boehmer 1 point 13 months ago

Would it be possible to take it into a very well lit place(maybe outdoors) and take a photo there???? Nice photographs will help it to get featured:D

J.Sammour 2 points 13 months ago

This will most probably make it to the most rated builds. It's more exciting than the 15k $ build. Good luck

Relaxing submitter 4 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Ok I lugged out my d750 and took a couple b roll shots. How do they look?

elias.boehmer 1 point 13 months ago

great:D
