Whisky PC

Something little that one can do with the empty glass bottles.

Better cooling

At this point the cooling was not good enough yet. After half an hour the bottle was a bit warm so I disassembled it and glued an old VGA card cooler into the bottle neck to help the air flow out. Furthermore I drilled 6 additional holes at the side panel so now the fresh air can flow into the bottle at the big hole on the back side and through these small holes. I drilled out the bottle cap as well so at the first watch it seems the bottle is original, untouched. These little tweaks improved the cooling and the temperature came down.

Serving

Since that time my Whisky PC is still working well and quietly in the corner of my living room. Perhaps I should start planning on making a cluster of these... Combine the fun of emptying the whiskey bottles with some good company and building a high calculation power cluster. ;)

Current system

I started the case modding 5-6 years ago when I got fed up with the box shaped white computer cases. My current machine is an Apple PowerMac G4 Quicksilver filled with an A64 system. Externally I modded it at the front side, I made a 3rd drive door above the original ones and installed blue lights.
