My System Specs

Default Lego HTPC Case V.1

I may end up building something a bit bigger if i'm home again visiting for the weekend. Mainly something i threw together quickly with the new heat sink fan i got not too long ago.

Very nice, lol. Why the brown sides though? Does it "match" your other stuff?

There isn't really much internally. The hard drive is mounted in there along with the mobo thats really about it.

I went with the brown as its the only 'wall pieces' i have in that quantity, could find at the time, and didn't have little windows in them (damn the old medieval knights stuff)

What are you talking about? I think a windowed side panel in this chassis would be pretty stylish

No, what i mean is that each wall piece has a little window so you can see into it every wall piece you put up.


Notice the windows in those black wall pieces with stone around them, thats what i'd have if i used black or grey instead of the wood look

Seeing as i am using an Atom processor with a standard 775 after market heatsink fan it runs rather cool.

If i get the chance to go home again this summer i'll do a buildlog for it so people can see inside of it.
