Case Mod Friday: The RecoilMachine

Project Name: The RecoilMachine


About this mod / project:
Having been inspired by a few other wall mounted PCs, I decided to build my own. I used my existing hardware, but separated each component out and mounted them on a Perspex/Plexiglass plate. Each plate is backlit with LED’s and mounted on a piece of framed and vinyl-clad hardboard. 2 months, around 20 individual shipments of components from three different continents, and countless hours of hard work later, ‘The RecoilMachine’ is ready and hanging on my wall.
