New project, stuff a PC inside a fire extinguisher. For pre-planning, I need some help/advice. First off, here's what the "Phister No 1" fire extinguisher looks like (6.5" x 15"):
***I'd like to run the pressure dial off some stat of the PC. Perhaps the temp of the CPU or GPU, since they fluctuate, but not rapidly. Does anyone have an idea of how I can accomplish this? I can probably shoehorn the existing dial into whatever I need, but I'm not sure how to get signal to run an analog dial like this.
I will also incorporate one of the other handles/knobs on the top as the power/reset for the PC. I already have experience with that.

The mobo will protrude 1/2" out the back of the tank. Unfortunate consequence of the size of the tank, but I need a cutout in the back anyway. The mobo will be in the bottom half of the tank.SFX PSU TFX PSU
located in top half of tank.EVGA GTX1060
located in top half of tank, display wires routed out of the tank at the mobo level.
RAM, M.2 SSD, and there will be room for a 3.5" hdd also.
I can fit a 120mm case fan in the bottom blowing up. The top will be vented [somehow].
The fire extinguisher will serve as a shell that's slid over top of the PC.
