    If you have the parts, go for it.

    Could always make it another cruncher! :D

    Yeah I have the parts.

    I thought about crunching it, but I don't feel comfortable exposing cardboard to heat for a long period of time. Even thought I know this hardware doesn't get really hot, I would never risk it.:p

    I understand that 100% thats why i didn't keep my cruncher in my box BUT i was also running a overclocked dual core and a Nforce 4 chipset (those are some hot little fuckers)

    Well, here's my build in a box. It's not that nice looking, but it does work. Still installing XP at the moment...

    (Forgive the bad photos, the lighting is poor and I'm too lazy to mess with my camera.)

    Not yet a PC in a box, but an Ultra Kaze in a box, which is gotta be worth something ;)

    I could probably fit a mini-itx board, a 2.5" HDD, and a slimline disc drive in there. Too bad I have none of those things :/ Something like this, but with the disc drive either above everything (horizontally mounted) or to the left of the fan (vertically mounted).

    I like cardboard as a computer case material. It's light, biodegradable, highly modifiable and as long as you don't get it wet or put anything extremely hot on it it's great.

    I like all of these they're pretty damn cool hehe, but out of all of them I'd say my favourite is Sniperbob's, that's one cool, neat and lovely little box =)

    lol? sounds like youre in need:D

    there is no break... in war, you also cant decide, its time for a break now :p

    why do you still post your old achievements,when everyone knows about them:)?

    i also would recommend you, to not use dice to impress us, your air cooling achievements were far better than you dice stuff.

    get you overkill water cooling, a nice proc, and start to fight:laugh:

    Do it. I'm loving these awesome cardboard PCs.

    I might this weekend, but it would require dissassembling my main gaming/school/WCG rig, which I'm not enthusiastic about doing. I don't have the funds to replace parts and I don't want to be without a computer for 2 weeks if I had to RMA
