Hello all, it's very good to be back! I have been away for a while because of work and as we know life just happens with no shit's to give. With that said I am very happy to finally and as promised show off my latest project, somthing I have been working on for some time now :-)
I give to you my Stealth PC Grow Box Prototype. Well it is the final prototype I am putting into production.
Those of you who follow me already know I specialise in building micro grow unit's. In my many years of covert micro growing I have found that a PC case is one of the best options to use for a micro grow unit if build correctly. Over the last 5 years I have build around 20 pc grow cases for myself and freinds, and with feedback and some tweaking I have manufactured " What I believe is " the best Stealth PC Grow Case on the market.
Here are the specs.....
Front and rear "fluid dynamic bearing" turbine fans
Front and rear fan speed controller
Activated charcoal filter ( Easy to replace charcoal )
Fully insulated and reflective inner
50w Full Spectrum COB LED ( 50 000 hr life-span )
Light cycle timer
Perminant Internal 120v -220V power supply ( Perfect for a airpump if growing hydro )
Grow Area - Legnth 35cm X Width 17cm X Hight 35cm
With some basic specs covered I can cover the basic cocept of the pc grow unit and how everything functions.
Starting at the rear of the unit you can see the three air inlet slits that deliver air to the plant, cool the LED and inlet fresh air regulating the enviroment.
Next you can see the 50w COB LED. I build the light here useing the same method and LED chip I have shared in the past. To combat heat I cement the LED heatsink directly to the PC box chassis. This dissipates the heat into the oter chassis of the unit allowing the insulated reflective inner to keep the box cool.
Front side I have deisgned the exhaust using a turbine fan and fabricated carbon filter. To change the activated charcoal simply put the box on it's side, pop the lid off and suck the old activated charcoal out with a vacuum. Then top up with new activated charcoal and you good to go!

Pop one of the fron covers out and you have access for the fron and rear fan speed controller. This is useful because you can set the speed with the box closed, useful if adjusting fan speed to lower noise volumes. The fans are rated at 25db running at full 12v. The case sounds like a quite pc when running.
Also the reason I used turbine fans is because they work well at creating suction or pressure. I have managed to fine tune things to the point were the box will run at room temp no problem. The two combined fans move more than 100 times the volume of the box every min :-)
Well that's some basic info, I am working on a website and will update soon with more info. I recently got the word out there and have landed three orders so far in total. If you would like order a PC grow case please drop a comment below. I must note that obviously each unit is hand build by me so I think I will have a waiting list soon lol! Basically I will be hitting the net at around $300 per unit. This sounds pricey but is affordable esspecially given the fact I build them properly. If you can find anything better online please share!
Anyone interested in ordering with bitcoin $280 each. And yes yes only $250 per unit if you pay me with SMOKE! I am open to custom builds and designs if you require any specific features or custom PC box for example.
Thanks for stopping by I am looking forward to all your comment and feedback. I will update soon, I plan on doing a grow as I plan on keeping the prototype for myself cause I can.
