Now, some build notes:

The written guide that will accompany this build will be available on
However, it will be a while before I get it completed, due to a huge work list I have to get through, so unfortunately it won't be ready until at least October.

Regarding the use of acetone, it's not the most dangerous chemical in the world (it's used in nail varnish remover for example) but it's always a good idea to wear suitable gloves when handling it and be in a well ventilated environment during its use so you don't breathe in the fumes. It's also worth noting that the vapours themselves are very flamable, so keep sparks and open flames well away from your work area during use. Again, this is why it's important to be in a well ventilated environment.

  • I just started watching. I'm about to comment on your PC under the desk in the wall. Watching on another screen, oh Your going to build a Bluetooth speaker, OK I have to go watch this. I'm building a bunch of sound systems right now, especially Bluetooth, Let's see If I get some good ideas, some little tricks. Edit Ten minutes later, your Concrete Bluetooth stereo, Dude, Thank you for showing your very appreciated Bluetooth configuration, That's nice, I like it very much, OK please talk about Ohms, and impedance, wattage, and crossovers. Back again, you have a lot of really great videos. Thanks, for all your coolness. lol. Serious good job, you got some great ideas. I love electronics, and wood, and metal, and glass, You are about to make mushroom lights now, oh man I wish I could show you what I'm doing. Ok what kind of Yogurt do you like? "Activea" That's mine, sorry. I'm not a yogurt conasuir, but I do like it, I bring it home. I want to ask you a question alright. How did you get started on ARworlds, I have my shop of cool projects for ARworlds ready to go. Video editing so much to do.

  • I very much enjoyed you video (have liked and subscribed) had a thought... Why not slip a mac mini M1 inside with less fans and run MacOS and Windows for probably the same money at faster than i9 speeds. Same smart looking table with less work and less to maintain.

  • Use liquid cooling, and the fan noise will be gone. Set the radiator(s) tilted for cross-flow and use a foam strip to seal the sides touching the top and bottom. Then, use 120MM fans pulling air directly through the bottom of the table. You could expose the radiator to the bottom of the table, but they are very fragile.

  • Fantastic channel thank you. But you missed a trick on this build. You don't need any heat sinks, powerful fans or large amount of air flow bringing dust into this table. You have a wonderful heat sink in the form of the aluminium sheet under the table. Aluminium brackets clamped to the CPU etc., and bottom plate using heat sink compound should do the trick. Thermal rubber Matt could be used where electrical isolation is necessary, for instance on some components inside the power supply. One large silent fan would be good to keep air moving arround components not attached to the heat sink. I would recommend spraying the plate under the table with matt black paint to help heat dissipation. It would make a nice leg warmer in the winter!! Mark

  • Another approach would be to buy yourself an iMac. and put it on a table of your choice, thereby achieving essentially the same result at much lower cost, and a reducing the risk of burning your legs in the 80 deg Celsius [ 175. deg F ] airflow under the table. This is an example of the lengths required to implement a bad idea. It's also a fine example of what happens when people who do not understand the basics of heat transfer technology attempt to solve a heat transfer problem. Regarding the last remark, it is as well to bear in mind that there are three mechanisms by which heat can be transferred - conduction, radiation and convection. Only convection is considered here, using air fans and what are laughingly called " heat sinks " - originally an abstract concept in theoretical thermodynamics but now regularly assumed to exist by electronics workers.
