The first two iterations of this project were based on packaging up an ATX motherboard and PCIe graphics card and using a separate ATX power supply.
When the Pelican Air cases were released it was time to get to what I was aiming for from the start. A lugable, full ATX motherboard, good size GPU in a hand luggage sized case. Preferably with integrated monitor. The completed unit should be rated IP67 resistant, because of the selected power (Amphenol MS3102A 10SL-3P) and ethernet (Amphenol LTW, RCP-5SPFFH-SCU7001) sockets (by the handle).
The key to this build is the Seasonic TFX 350W power supply, which provides sufficient power for running a reasonable Xeon CPU, reasonable GPU, couple of SSDs and 22" LED monitor.
- I still need to run the network line to the waterproof socket on the front
- Make a mounting bracket for the USB3.0 ports onto the lid / top plate (white)
- get the correct DC power plug for the monitor 12V
- secure the monitor when its in use and placed in the lid, when stored it will be placed on foam on the top plate (white painted carbon fiber sheet)
