This build was a class project for leaning how to build a PC. Twelve student from age 11 to 60 learned about the parts of a PC and how to put them together. The ideas was to use some recycled parts and some new parts as if this were and upgrade to a home PC. In the end we only were able to put two recycled (scrubbed) hard drives and a case fan, but it was still a successful build. The original case we wanted to use was a 'find' at the dump, but despite being and "interesting" case" it proved unsound because of some loose case wires for the power/reset button, so this $30 case in the description was purchased to complete the build.
This PC will be used in the Atheneum Library for other projects like simple 3D printing and design as well as some games. Over some more classes we will install the OS, benchmark the system, and tweak setting.
