Default Ableton DJ Road mix machine Madness 2.0!!

Well me and my Danksoul bud have begun our second "BriefPC".

In the top we have stripped a 15" LCD down to it's bare essentials. In the bottom compartment we have a M2NPV-VM motherboard, Athlon BE-2350 X2 2.1GHZ 45W, 2GB DDR2 667, 2 x 80gb 7200RPM 2.5" SATA drives RAID 1, a Presonus Firebox soundcard ( PreSonus ) , and a Shuttle 350W PSU.

Here's a link to the old one we made in a much larger case. It turned out well, but was too heavy for airline carry on-luggage. Login | Facebook

Pics wooo! Lots of Audio in/outs, some midi ports, you know. Pretty wicked!

neat, cant look at facebook at work, but I built one for my job here for hardware troubleshooting some of the equip I have here, Ill post pics of it sometime.

Mine is not as pretty, but it needs to have all the o/b connectors exposed for easy swap/testing.

Also it is a p3 750, but it runs win98 just fine...

So far it is going great. Almost done! Got everything mounted, and threw the XP cd in, loaded up and ready to install. Just need to get a few more audio in/out ports installed out the back, and do some power/monitor cable modding. I'll have pics up no later than tuesday!

This thread needs images. Also, Ableton is an interesting program. I have no idea how to use it though.
Another thing to watch out for it to make sure the shielding on the backlight driver is okay. They can sometimes be a little noisey with spurious EM. Not that it should affect much.

Images added to the top! Also, my temps are great. Full load sees no higher than 40 degrees, and maintaining silence. It's awesome!

Ok, that's got to be just about the coolest thing I've seen in quite a while!!!!

What's the total weight?

(I can just imagine the looks you'd get trying to take that through customs..... :)

It's about 20-25 pounds. Maybe even a little less? Gotta weigh it still.
