    Nice one mate

    Bet that was abit of a bitch to fit and mount in the end.

    Be awesome with wireless I must say.

    Might be interested in one in a Kyrstal case but would only be using it as a storage system so wouldn't need the ram as much but maybe 1 maybe even 2 hard drives in it but by looks of it dunno if would fit Hmmm.

    Just want one as a network storage PC really. Let me no Plus you aint far from me Im only in Brandon near Thetford :P

    Nice work, i wouldnt put my HDD on top of the PSU though, but i like it.
    Need to whip my xbox out the loft and have a play with something like this.

    Does it have a purpose or just general PC?.

    Hi there, I have now put wireless and Bluetooth in it and it works a charm with added fans too!

    There is a way I can put more than one hard drive in it. I would just need to build a caddy.

    I did try one in a crystal case too at first but any little marks or cuts are shown through the plastic and it ended up looking rather shoddy in the end.

    Yes I live in Sudbury so not too far at all.

    Cheers, Yeah I did wonder about the hard drive at first but with a few months of use and proper cooling it runs at a good temperarture without any problems so far. If I make another I will make a proper HD caddy too.

    At the moment I use it as a basic media center machine for my tv to do a few emails, Browising and Youtube in bed and it runs really quite well.

    Nice, i have a nice little project that may interest you at some point if i finish it and move it from AV.

    Involves a Faulty Pioneer Amp + Dual Core System = Well you know.
    But it'll look like a stock amp with a front display reading temps, process's ect.

    Why did you do it or was it just 'something different'?
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    That sounds pretty cool and I would love to see it when it's finished, I love doing geeky things for the sake of being geeky :P

    Was sitting in bed one night staring at the old xbox I had attached to my tv and thought '' You know what would be a cool thing to do'' And that's how it happend. Just a bit of fun =].
