    Its a struggle to think about the possibility of letting it go. Even if I don't use it, it would just look cool sitting there!

    Made a few changes to my Mini ITX over the past week or two getting it where I want it and I'm pretty close now. Specs as per my system specs <

    recent changes are the Vortex CPU cooler, upgrade to 8gb ram and a new SSD, aside from that the small overhaul gave me the time to do a hec of a lot of cable management with zip ties, I'm really liking the finished build, it's ridiculously fast for its size.

    in this second pic you can see the SSD tucked away behind the bracket that makes space for a long gfx card and supports the bottom of the HDD cage.

    I'm tempted to get a different mini-itx case so I have just a little bit more room to work in, and above entries look mighty attractive :) Especially the one Peet posted, since I frequently visit lans.

    Meh, don't care. I don't do platform reviews, just boards, so the main thing is that it works.


    Anwya, it's half as good as your Quad-Core. :laugh:

    This looks like a very interesting concept ^^^ ! Id like to see more!, to brandon post #18378- I have an old radeon hd4350 brand new in the box here [its a mates] that looks quite similar to that card in your photo of the cruncher rigg, i was thinking of doing a "ghetto mod" and using this heatsink i pulled off of the nvidia chip in an old broken xbox, and using an 80ml fan i got lying round. Just for the hell of it.

    That looks like a really neat little hotrod,, its like an engineering//aerodynamics/electronics challenge to take hi powered components and make them run as efficiently as possible in the smallest possible space, and the case looks really funky, understated but powerful. A tasteful combination.
    @ Cadaveca= m4, is that a new model?

    cheers for the feedback! what you said is pretty much exactly what I was going for, something small/portable, sleek yet understated as you say. it looks elegant or even just plain enough to not give any indication of the hardware beneath. already changed the PSU to a HX620 since I posted those pics :p

    I'll be posting in the case gallery V soon :)
