    I want this. Always wanted to build a engine shaped case for my sim setup.

    Racing games are just a step above tennis and billiard sims.

    It's an interesting design but having all the parts not enclosed might be problematic.

    Negative. You get to clean your engine and hear it rev up and down.

    I was thinking more like general everyday enviroment stuff. Heat, moisture, etc. I like it though.

    no dust filter? I was thinking be careful plugging in USB devices on the front. Could get mildly irritating real quick.

    What I did with my gaming PC to give full accessibility, take less space and avoid spending lots of money is place the motherboard on a bit of card and put everything on the lower level of a small living room table.
    (everything that needs table space = psu, mobo, 2x hard drive +SSD and all wires)
    The upper level of the table has a cloth over to hide the PC.

    A silent 220mm fan blows air through to prevent air recirculating.
    Its practically silent at idle (can just hear hard drives spinning).
    The 3090 has a pretty quiet whoosh of air when worked hard, which I dont care one iota about when gaming.
    The only other improvisation was to place an HDMI port plug (those that came with my 3090 card) between the cards heatsink plastic and a mobo heatsink to keep the gfx card upright.
    The gfx card is so heavy its solid!
    Been using it since November like this, flawless.

    Yeah, its nice but not particularly robust and does not sit with convention and so that means to use it you have be unconventional and so its a no go for me.

    Lol, $600. It looks like they're off one decimal point.

    Not only, the box not only protect the computer from what you said, but protect what is around from the computer.
    Without box that do like a shield, you have parasite on many signal when the CPU run, the IO etc etc.
    This is why there is no open frame in studio or in the house of hyper electrostatic sensibility people...

    It's designed to look like an engine, right? Engines are housed under the bonnet, and protected.
