PS3 80GB + PC in one case - concept question?

Post by PRU_tastic » Tue May 15, 2012 6:56 pm

Hey, what's up benheck forum? This is a serious consideration for me. I am looking to build a new PC and my PS3 is becoming mildly obsolete for me but I still want to keep it. If I could fit both a custom PC and my PS3 in one case BOY would I be a happy camper. I don't care how big the case is (within reason..) But it can be big. Any ideas? Places to start? Cases? Idea of all the work involved?

:D ANY HELP IS AWESOME

It is perfectly possible to do. Heck I think there is even a company that sells them. The main problem though would probably be heat. You would almost have to liquid cool it with a huge fan over the heat sink. And I still doubt you could run both at the same time. Size depends on cost/power of computer. You could build a small but pretty powerful computer but it would cost a lot. So the main break down is cost and how much you want to spend.

Thanks for the reply and sorry for my such delayed one - Irony is a cruel thing? Talking about a new computer and mine overheated. Which brings the concern you stated even more to my attention. Maybe for now I'll just stick with two seperate entities.

A (titanium?) partition of sorts in a case holding two separate motherboards could solve the cooling problem all together, or if your feeling epic - go with a mineral oil cooled rig. Mineral oil - not fryer or motor - is cheap and you can probably get a huge jug of it at Walmart or Target.
