Project Dieselpunk-PC

Yesterday I finished a project, code-named "Project Diesel Punk-PC". Okay, it is probably more like an Atompunk-PC - but who wants to be so petty?

The basis was a 19 inch chassis, which is lying around here for ages. The front- and back plane was done with 3 mm Aluminium. Inside the rack, an old motherboard (MS-6340 Rev 1.0) took place. The computer is equipped with an AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1.2 GHz, 768 MB RAM, an 80 GB WD Harddisk, a 3Com fast ethernet NIC, and a Riva TNT M64 AGP graphics card. An old PC for an old chassis. ; )
The CPU fan is loud as hell but the CPU keeps my room warm.
On the front there are a number of LEDs, connectors, switches and instruments in order to make the chassis look like an old power supply.
As an additional feature I mounted some LED light strips to shed light on the motherboard. Looks pretty cool, right?
