The white trash computer...
Well ladies and gentlemen...I'd just like to inform you that Matt Crews and I provided a computer for his little 'bro, Jordan. We decided to go a bit different route though...we present to you, the WHITE TRASH COMPUTER, now on display in the 5-Man, Antioch Upstairs. Yeah, so what else do you do the week before school starts anyway? Huh? :)
*for those that asked in the comments*:
1. yes, it is nice and quiet actually. It's not like there are a bunch of case fans to make it noisy. And it runs pretty cool too.
2. Dust isn't a huuge issue, since there are no fans pulling in tons of it. Just spray it off with some canned air every few weeks and it's fine.
3. The on/off switch is just as white trash folks - it's original to the core. We didn't have time to strip a power-switch from an old case, so we decided, what the heck, go old-school and just use a screwdriver to complete the circuit. Crude? Yeah. A little more work? Yeah. White trash original to the core? HECK YES.
4. Cost? about $42. Why? $11 for the HSF for the processor. $31 for a refurb'd stick of DDR from Newegg. I already had the rest of the parts...the plywood came from a shelf that I no longer needed.
5. I'm happy with it the way it is, mounting it directly to the wall would be much more difficult, because I can't exactly zip-tie things to the wall, plus the sheer amount of holes would probably not be fun to repair. Next project is a secret...but it won't happen for a long time. I guarantee it will be awesome.
