Building a computer takes 10 minutes once you've got all the parts, not much of a "project" really.

Is there something especially challenging about building this PC? I cant see that it would be suitable for an EPQ. Has this been approved by your teacher?

I suppose if he did detailed reporting on the architecture of the components and aswell as there evaluating how well they pair with the system aswell as identifying bottlenecks within the throughputs of each component and such, idk he could write software optimisations or modify and make custom drivers you could get a Project out of it. Maybe

Nope. Tbh it sounds like a lame project and poor choice for an epq. If im not mistaken hes just going to buy the parts and put them together? Not as though its an electronics project.

If he was to build his own from scratch as a model of a classic computer i.e a mechanical one or one using valves then maybe.

I do know of someone from my college that did an epq on designing and building a water cooling system for a computer and recieved and A for it but I think you'll need something a bit more than just building a computer
