    Project: Boom Tube

    I saw these acrylic tubes online and right away I thought of the Boom Tubes in DC Comics with Darkseid appearing



    I picked up two of these 200mm Red LED fans





    I'm going to mount one to each end and in a push/pull airflow system



    I measured out the rear motherboard plate



    I'm going to be using the Zotac motherboard with the Intel Atom dual core, 2GB of DDR2, and an 80GB SSD





    I'll mount them on a square piece of plexi that will slide into the tube

    Those 200mm fans are great!! I bought one those and placed in the front of a COOLER MASTER HAF case for a friend and it just looks sick!!

    That will have some fantastic air flow for cooling. And look awesome too!!

    Use water in a big res from top to bottom!!

    To me it looks like the perfect setup for an oil cooled pc, just shorten the tube and go from there. Haven't seen you go that way that I can think of so this would be the perfect start.

    Basic fish tank oil computers suck ass but this could become something epic if you choose the oil way. I have faith in you and your design skills.

    urg no oil is a bad idea, think of the weight aswell!

    Looks like a great idea either way, look forward to seeing it finished!

    I was going to update this tonight, but while cutting out the motherboard backplate I killed my Craftsman rotary tool. It lasted 5 years too.

    I guess I'll have to get a new one tomorrow.

    I cut out the IO port and it was a dusty adventure



    After getting it inside the tube I soon realize how obvious the wiring is going to be
