Hi, Tech

Volta V: Gaming PC in a Gorgeous Wooden Box


 

popconfig


 

This thing aint cheap, but damn, it’s gorgeous. If you’re looking to be thrifty, just refer to our current Hack Pack.

When this hit our radar, we thought this was a kickstarter campaign. We were wrong. This endeavor comes from Computer Direct Outlet,  an O.G. company that’s been creating custom computers with lifetime service warranties since 1997.

Volta V (4 of 22)The Volta V is the first commercially-produced, handcrafted wooden computer. The unibody chassis is made from domestically-sourced, selectively-cut trees in the USA, and it’s inspired by honestly-made wooden furniture. Each one is outfitted to your custom specs.

 

As Kotaku noted:

“A company with a CEO named Gary Underwood, a designer named Ty Underwood and a engineer named Dale Woodard. Seriously. These guys were born to make a wooden PC.”

Volta V (12 of 22)Let’s get into specs, as listed on their site.

 Chassis Dimesions
516x302x100mm (20.3×11.9×3.9 in)
15.6 Liters

Dust-Free Airflow
An active convection airflow system that moves air up and out the back of the machine. Two large easily removable magnetic dust filters make cleaning a snap.

Total Quiet
The acoustics of the Volta V are designed to push all fan noise down and away from you. The result is an exceptionally quiet computer at idle and under load.

Cable-Free Workspace
Volta V hides the motherboard IO inside the chassis, slots are cut to allow keyboard, networking, and access for more permanent connections to be hidden away.

Magnetic toolless entry
Strong magnets hold the lid on and it can be easily removed for repairs, upgrades, and attaching cables to the inside. Every component is clearly laid out on a single level for the most intuitive user repair experience.

Handy i/o
USB 3.0, headphone and mic ports are accessible on the upper right side, allowing for easy access while keeping the design clean.

Keyboard Hideaway
Volta V allows you to stow your keyboard that’s up to 1.5 inches high and 18.4 inches wide completely under the machine, and route the cable tidily to a dedicated slot on the bottom of the chassis.
