Can you ever imagine a PC in a whisky bottle? Yeah, that’s pretty much possible with Whiskey PC. If you have a computer setup and are looking for something to serve as a basic home server which is quiet, small and also low in power consumption, you can made a unique case with a Whiskey bottle called as the Whisky PC. You could select a 1.5 liter Ballantine’s bottle for example. You have to go to a professional glass grinder to do the cutting and drilling work for the whisky PC project. You can have two holes at the back of the bottle so that the CPU gets cooled and one hole at the left side for putting in all the stuffing.
You then need to buy the processor, a notebook RAM, a notebook HDD and a mini-ITX PSU. You have to place the RAM module at the back of the mobo. Then you need to assemble all the hardware and make a side panel with a lock which is actually just a small piece of plexi at the left. You can fix this lock with two screws and the side panel can then be held in place. The next step in making a whiskey PC is the OS installation. Next, you have to do the tricky part of getting the rest of the hardware parts inside to fit it.
The HDD and the PSU panel can be fixed in the correct position by using a double-sided, self-adhesive tape. It is not possible to do this with screws as the space inside is very limited and the service window is also very small. However by placing it in this way, the cooling may not be that good, hence for better cooling you have to glue an old VGA card cooler inside the bottle neck so that the hot air can flow out.
Some more holes must also be drilled into the side panel so that fresh air can flow inside the bottle both from the bigger hole present on the back side and these smaller holes. This will improve the cooling effect and temperature of the Whiskey PC will be reduced.
A whiskey PC made in this way works quietly and anyone who is fed up of the box shaped white computer cases can model something like this. You can also add some additional items like making a third drive door a little higher than the original ones and then installing some blue or white lights.
